Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

Summer is here and we all feel a sense of relief.  The kids are out of school, the traffic has died down and we can plan a few projects with our newly-found free time.

Sound accurate?  The question is,  do we want to take on the same old projects, or are we interested in something more lasting and maybe a bit spiritual? Life-changing, if you will.

Meet #1 New York Times bestselling author & Japanese cleaning consultant, Marie Kondo.  Her book, the Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, has sold over 2 million copies and spawned a slew of You-Tube videos highlighting the success of her KonMarie Method.  This detailed program is considered revolutionary and most importantly, boasts LASTING results!  Translation- once you have properly purged and organized, you'll never have to do it again.

Hearing nothing but great stories from our customers, we agreed that we needed to give this a try.  For the next 6 weeks, our MacIntosh Staff and friends will be reading the Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and sharing our stories, pictures and transformations via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  If you'd like to join us, we'd love to have you. The more the merrier!  At the end of July, we'll meet up for a glass of wine and celebrate our accomplishments.  Sound fun? Bike on by for a copy or purchase one here and follow along online.  Happy reading!

Join us for a special event with David FitzSimmons!

Tuesday, June 2nd - 6 p.m.

Curious Critters!

Explore the amazing, up-close worlds of common North American animals—from butterflies and birds to frogs and fish—with award-winning photographer and writer David FitzSimmons. With the help of the audience, David will perform parts of his “Curious Critters” picture books, including his newest title, “Curious Critters Marine.” Children will shriek like hawks, hop like toads, and swim like sea bass. Learn why spoonbills are pink and lobsters are sometimes blue. Discover what sea stars eat and how mammals fly. Show includes puppets and take-home activities for all children.

As a special treat, a representative from C.R.O.W will be stopping by with an Animal Ambassador.  A portion of the book sales will benefit C.R.O.W of Sanibel. 

If you are unable to attend, but would like to purchase a personalized copy of Curious Critters, please email or call 239.472.1447 prior to the event.
