Show Me Some Bloglovin - a Giveaway for Bloglovin Followers!

What's up to all my Fantastic Followers!!
You have probably heard by now that Google Reader is going away on July 1st.  Well, Google Reader may be going away, but I don't want YOU to go away, so I hope that you will consider following my blog through Bloglovin'!  I know that change is I thought I might sweeten it up for you a little bit!

I am doing a giveaway for all of my fabulous followers that take the leap and switch over to Bloglovin'.  You may have already switched over!  In that case, this will be an easy entry!

If you have not yet switched or are not following my blog through Bloglovin', then there are a few easy steps to follow.  You can go to my sidebar (that's the column on the right over there that shows my followers) and you can click the button that says, "Follow this blog with bloglovin' at the very top."  Or, you can go into the Rafflecopter below and click the link in the first entry, and that will take you to my blog on Bloglovin'.

You will need to set up an account with Bloglovin' so that you can follow me.  Please be sure to leave your Bloglovin' username in the Rafflecopter entry. 

If you want to go ahead and move all of the blogs you follow from Google over, you can go to this link and it will take you through the super easy steps.  BUT, please go to my Bloglovin' link and make sure that you are following me through Bloglovin' since there have been some glitches with the imports. To be sure, make sure that the blue button at the top of my Bloglovin' page has been clicked (it should be gray with the word following- if it's blue, please click it to follow!)

So, once you follow me with Bloglovin', please enter my giveaway!!  I will be picking 3 Winners to win any 3 items from my TN store!  I am asking that you "like" this post on Bloglovin' after you become a follower. I can see who has liked the post, so that will be a way for me to verify the winners!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

My Teacher Always Says Linky!

What's up y'all? 
I know you are surprised to hear from me so soon!! But I just had to link up with Tammy over at Forever in First  for her 

"My Teacher Always Linky."  
I always tell my kids that I am going to record myself and then just press play when they start asking the same things over and over again!! So here are some of my saying...
Do you ever find yourself repeating something over and over again? Really!!!

I tell my kids this on the first day of the year goes on and someone asks me to spell a word...I will hear someone say "Ms. Jones doesn't spell words s.t.r.e.t.c.h. it out!"
I have to crack up sometimes!!

I am a stickler about procedures and expectations...  
What!?! Do the right thing mannnnn!!!

Need I say

I had some littles that wanted to grow up oh so fast!! 
Too grown before there time...
Lips shining brighter than mine...
I don't think so...take it off and take it home!

When they are content to do the bare minimum, or don't give me 100%, won't put name on paper, won't print neatly...
shall I go on...

When I am just having one of those days and all else fails...
all I could do is call on the name of the LORD!!
Can I get an AMEN!!!

Now it's your turn...I just love linky is such a fun way to meet other bloggers...So head on to over see Tammy and link up with your teacher sayings.

HUMP Dayyyyy in my Geico Camel that commercial. 

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!!

It's Monday Tuesday again and that means it is time for Tara's...
I missed last weeks edition, but hope to participate every week until school starts back.  We'll see how that goes...
My first made it... is for my classroom computers...the mouse pads were old and ugly and looked like this:
well with a little fabric and ribbon...
I ended up with this...
My next made it... is something very simple that I created to hold our Box Tops that we collect.  I used a 20 oz empty can of Planters Peanuts...and some wood grain contact paper from the Dollar Tree...I wrapped the contact paper around the can and cut a circular piece for the lid...

Then I wrapped ribbon around the top and bottom of the can...and put on the "Wanted...Box Tops" labels I made...

Well those are my two made its for the week...I'll be back next week with some more goodies!!
