ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!!!!

I can't believe it has been ONE YEAR since my blogging journey began.  I started blog stalking about two years ago, and couldn't believe the creative teachers out there who loved their job and spent hours after work preparing, to make learning fun and engaging for their little ones.  A year ago, I needed an outlet to pour my creativity into and to do something just for ME.  The idea of making something to sell on TpT was beyond me, and it was a far fetched goal.  I slowly started learning how to do things on my blog, how to "link up," comment on blogs, and eventually, I learned how to make printables in PowerPoint. ;)  If any of you are just getting started and feel overwhelmed, know that it's completely normal and it IS overwhelming at times.  When all else fails, youtube it, and some 12 year old in Germany will be able to walk you through the steps (I wish I was joking...lol)!

And of course, a Blogiversary means a GIVEAWAY!  I am picking some of my favorite things that I have made over the past year and would love to give them to you if you win!  Here they are....







To enter the giveaway, all you need to do is...
 ~follow my blog {and leave a comment with your email}
or
~Pin one (or all) of the packs above {leave a comment saying which one, with your email}

  I will pick a random number out of the comments on Jan 6th!

  6. Pinned Simple Sentences because I work with all the struggling readers in mu grade level. Also, the letter recognition packet for my 3 little boys who are still having great difficulty with letter recognition. This looks like something they could maybe do independently after the lesson at my table. I have checked out your blog on a regular basis, but now am a follower.

  26. Hi Michelle,
    Congratulations! Recently I have purchased a number of your products. I know as soon as I return to work and have them in place my little ones will enjoy and learn from them - nice layout and kid-friendly. Thanks a lot for having your hard work available. Additionally, I appreciate your generosity with your give-a-way. I am following your blog and will check your store for new items throughout the year. Happy New Year.
