Blog Lovin?? Yes, I am ! Mini-giveaway!

So, friends, apparently the death of Google Reader is upon us.
Follow my blog with Bloglovin
(Thanks to the Brown-Bag Teacher for the awesome graphic!!!)

You might ask what in the world that means, and I'll be honest... I don't really know all the specifics.

I'm not the most tech-savvy chick out there, but what I do know is all the blogs you follow will be lost. No, seriously...

So, it's time to make a move... and that move is to BlogLovin!
  If you look to the right ------------------------------>
     Yeah, over there right above my picture, you will see "Follow this blog with bloglovin".  Just click there & done....except you'll have to set up your own account, and it's easy peasy.

The Brown Bag Teacher has written a WONDERFUL tutorial for how to do it all....just click <HERE>. It's really simple, and believe me, folks, if I can do it in just a couple minutes (no lie), you can, too!

Also, I'd love for you to follow me on Bloglovin' so we can stay friends & keep in touch.... 
   So, if you follow me there, please leave me a comment below & using a random number generator, I will choose TWO people to choose one item from my TpT store for FREE :) 'Cause I love ya, you know! Yay for a mini-giveaway!

I hope you join up! :)

That's about it for me tonight (this morning??). I really wanted to link up with my Monday Made-It, but it turned into my Monday (Almost) (Didn't) Make it.
    I want to make this....
 And most of you know I can't get in my school over the summer. BUT, the sweetest custodian ever allowed me to come grab my file cabinet so I could work on my re-do.

So, MB & I run in, grab the cabinet & load it into the back of the truck.

The plan was to spray paint it & be done.  Easy peasy, lemon squeezy, right?  Um, no.... it rained....then it stormed....it lightninged and thundered...and rained.  So, no spray paint unless I wanted to be a victim of "death by paint fumes" from the garage.

So, we had to paint it with a roller....and it took FOREVER to dry...and it got JUST dry enough to sneak it back into my classroom during my sweet window of opportunity.  So, it's sitting there, all painted...with no drawers...and no chevron :(  Boo.

I'll have to do that later when I can bribe sweet talk my way up there for just enough time to slap some contact paper on that baby & call it done!

Now, on to other projects...hmmm...ideas, ideas...

Hope everyone had a happy Monday... Thanks for stopping by & don't forget to follow me on bloglovin' & leave a comment :)


  1. I follow you on BlogLovin!


  2. OF COURSE I am following you on BlogLovin!


  3. I follow you on bloglovin. LOL, I had a similar agreement with a nice custodian a few summers ago when I was leveling my classroom library. I'd sneak in and grab a few boxes, take them home, level and label them, and then sneak them back in and trade for more boxes.
