Thank you to everyone who entered into my giveaway. I had a great turn out and my 4 winners have been emailed but here are the official winners: Pina, Carmen, Tammy and Heather! Congrats ladies:) Make sure to stop by again and enter the giveaway I will be hosting for my Blogiversary. Remember that I am collecting giveaway donations, if you want to donate, do so here.
I got nominated for the Liebster Award. Before I stopped by Shifting Teacher K-2 and A Teaspoon of Teaching, I kept thinking that I might have gotten nominated for this award before (all my buttons stopped working so I got rid of them). But alas, I have not had the honor to be nominated for the Liebster Award. And I am for grateful for the honor. I have to write a separate post as it's gonna be a long one. Did you know you could be nominated if you had less than 250 followers? So I am truly honored, thanks followers for helping me earn the award.

Speaking of MPM School Supplies (a company I just discovered this summer, I must have been under a rock!), Lessons with Laughter is having a giveaway. Head on over and enter to win!
Confessions of a Homeschooler created Pattern Block Number Cards 1-20 as a FREEBIE. Check out the rest of her blog, as you can find many things that are FREE or buy her curriculum she created. Her blogs was one of the first blogs I found on my "blog stalking" journey.
Do you shop at the Target Dollar Spot? Who am I kidding... have you been there this week? Well anywho, be on the look out for those cute ice trays that you really had no clue what you needed them for, but now you do courtesy of First Grade Blue Skies:
Head on over to her blog for more details on how to snag this cute freebie.:) Now I have to go find me some scrabble letters...
Ruby Slippers Blog Designs (also from Grade ONEderful) just created some Ice Cream Clip Art. You can click on the picture to be taken to the details about how you can WIN her new pack. Good luck! Plus the entry is pretty easy.
Oh by the way, I WON Barb's Ruby Slippers giveaway... I was smiling all day about it. I won a custom blog design but I absolutely love my blog but I knew of someone who could use it more than me... It's my dear friend Carmen from Karmen's Kinders. Carmen is unfortunately leaving the K team and going on an adventure to third grade. So thus she needs a new blog and a new name (any ideas?), that's where I come in. I can't wait to see what Barb and Carmen come up with together. If you are in need of a blog change, check out Barb's portfolio and contact Barb to get the ball rolling.
Another note about Carmen from Karmen's Kinders... if you know of some upper grade blogs she can follow (maybe yours) hop on over to her blog and link up. As this is a brand new grade for her, think of her as a new sponge ready to soak up any insights and ideas you can share!:)
