200 & Taking Care of Teachers & A Request



I am so excited about reaching the 200 blog followers milestone!!!!  Thanks to each of you for being here!  It sort of slipped up on me, but I plan to post a special freebie just for followers soon!  :)






On a much more serious note, I am linking up with Crystal from Kreative in Kinder to help out teachers who recently lost everything, including their classrooms, in the devastating tornadoes that ripped through much of our country!

If you have your own blog, please share and consider linking up!  Crystal will try to match you up with a school/teacher that you can help out personally.

If not, please keep these folks in your hearts as they piece their lives back together!



Here's what Crystal said,

"On March 2nd, several towns across the U.S. were devastated by the destruction of at least 44 tornadoes across 5 different states.  At least 27 people died and there were thousands left without homes and even schools.  I think the heart of a teacher is that of a giving spirit. It is our job to love all children even when it is sometimes hard, to work more hours than most professions, and give even when we feel like we have nothing left.  This catastrophe is an opportunity for us to do what we do best, lend a helping hand, caring heart, and teach a lesson of love. My heart is that each of you will adopt a teacher in a school affected by the tornadoes. It could be as simple as writing letters of encouragement or having your team clean out your closets and ship out everything you can live without to a teacher in your grade level. I couldn't imagine losing my school! I have thousands of dollars of materials that I have purchased for my class not to mention the hundreds of hours I have spent making materials for my students.  If you would like to participate, please leave me the grade you teach and your email address. I am on Spring Break this next week and will be contacting schools, getting names and addresses of teachers. Maybe you sell on TPT or TN and want to donate everything in your store. That would be great! I plan on doing that too! If you don’t have tangible items to donate, no biggy! We have all suffered through some sort of loss. It means just as much to receive a letter of encouragement and we are born encouragers!! I will send out an email with the school information that you will be assigned to."






Lastly, I'm asking for a favor.  I would love to try out this new website that allows you to schedule your pins.  As a blogger, this would be awesomely fantastic!  Pinerly is invite only and I need 10 others to sign up through me,


If you will, click on the link below {that is specific to me} and 'join' by entering your e-mail address.  That's it.  If you never want to use the site ever again, that's perfectly OK.




Have a wonderful week!




Enjoy :)
