An apple a day...and My Favorite Things Giveaway... :)


Click the photo to download the booklet


When I think of going back to school,  I think of apples.  I am not sure if it's because apples tend to be synonymous with school or if the color red has more to do with it.  

I created this printable booklet to be used with an apple theme last year, it was used in a publication that I wrote for.  I thought it would make a fun freebie to give away this week.

It won't be long before kids will be heading back to the classroom.  Have you started getting your classroom set up, or is it all ready to go?  I have spent most of my summer designing custom classroom decor sets for teachers that are heading back this week!   If you're looking for a unique decor that not only fits your likes, but will also engage your students, let me know!  I have a variety of options available, as well as artwork and color schemes to choose from. Even if you think it's funky or weird, let me know.  I have taken on some pretty wild requests, and have loved every minute of it! :)   

Who LOVES a good GIVEAWAY?


Anyone that knows me,  KNOWS, that I love being different and not necessarily following the status quo! Though, sometimes there are some pretty cool ideas that can be embellished on or created with a new twist. I thought long and hard about what I would like to giveaway and I came up with a box. :)  WOO HOO!  A box!!!  I know, right? :)   It isn't just any box.  It's a box that is going to hold some of MY favorite things! 
I used to love watching Oprah's My Favorite Things show, to see what her "picks" for the year were and how excited the audience was to receive all those goodies!  The best part was the suspense of not knowing what was coming next!

My Favorite Things Box might include a roll of duct tape (colored of course), super cute sticky notes, or even some of my favorite gel pens, or favorite curriculum book. My Favorite Things Box - August will be given away on August 8th.   Starting on Monday, July 29th I will be adding something to the box.  I will be adding something new to the box each day until August 8th.  I am not going to tell anyone exactly what will be inside until AFTER the recipient has received it. :)  That way the person receiving it and you will be surprised!

Everything that will be included in the "My Favorite Things" box will be brand new, sealed in packages, and can be used either for yourself or in your classroom! :)  Check back each day this week while I drop hints as to what is included in the box! :)  Are you excited?  I know, I am!!!

*NOTE* Because this giveaway involves shipping via postal service, it's open to U.S. and Canadian fans only. I will be holding a digital giveaway on my Blog and FB page soon so that friends around the globe can participate too.  I appreciate your understanding.

The contents in the MY FAVORITE THINGS box will be valued at AT LEAST $75.00 (before shipping!)

a Rafflecopter giveaway




Good luck!

Update 7/29/2013 -   Thank you so much to everyone who has participated so far in my lil' Giveaway!  I have already had to get a bigger box because one of my "favorite things" would not fit into the box I had already designated!!!   Who'd like a hint?  Ok.....It can be used for more than one purpose, and can be found hanging around in most classrooms!  Teachers can never get enough of these... :)

Check back tomorrow for the next update!! :)   

Update 7/31/2013 -  I am loving all of the comments on color!  It's amazing to me how different everybody's answers are!   I have added a new item to the box today.... Hint?  There is no WRITE or wrong way to use these! :)   Get it? :)

Be sure to share the link to my Blog post so that everyone can join in the fun!  Who do you think is going to win My Favorite Things for August?

Update:  8/2/2013

I am so excited for this giveaway!  I have added 2 more items to the box.  It's going to be the biggest Flat Rate box, and I may have to include a 2nd box to fit one of the items so it doesn't have to be folded.  Have you shared this giveaway with your friends?  If you have, and are following along - leave me a note.  Thank you for playing along!   6 days left until the winner will be chosen! :)
