1000 TPT Followers and Milestone Giveaway

I started this journey almost 2 years ago. I never even imaged the places it would take me, the opportunities it would give me, or give me incredible friendships with others all over the country. For me, that is the best part of all of this. The connections I've made and bonds I've formed with my blogging buddies is something I will always treasure. 

Almost 2 years ago, I was sitting in my old classroom with my former co-teacher and we were talking about how much we LOVED TPT. She mentioned that I should try selling some of the things I had made and I remember saying "yeah right, who would want to buy anything I make or listen to me ramble about what I do in my classroom." A week later, with her encouragement, I signed up to sell on TPT and a month later I started a blog. That same lady just got her first principal job and I am beyond excited for her. I know she is going to rock it! 

A year and 10 months later here I am with over 1000 TPT followers and I just hit my first big TPT milestone. To those of you that listen to me ramble and spend your hard earned money on something I created, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. It means more to me than you will ever know. 

Now to celebrate I'm throwing a little GIVEAWAY! Ok, its not little. It's a pretty big one actually! 

First up is a CUSTOM classroom wall hanging by Rustic Paisley. My sweet friend Hannah, who is the newest member of my family is crazy talented and runs this little company. She likes to turn trash to treasure and she is super good at it! 

She also just recently started a TPT store! Go follow The Free Spirit Teacher. I know she is going to do awesome!  

How cute are those?? The "B" is mine! You can enter to win a custom wall hanging by filling out the rafflecopter below. 

Up next is a pencil sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies! If you have not heard of these, trust me when I say that YOU NEED ONE (OR FIVE) IN YOUR LIFE! They might be old school crank sharpeners but they are the BEST things ever. You can read my review about them here
