400 Follower Giveaway - Erin Condren & More!

I have been so excited to get this giveaway going that I decided to make it live before I'm officially at 400 Google Followers...thanks to all of you email followers out there I'm well over 400!

I'm looking forward to posting another installment of my Oprah's Favorite Things experience...I've got two more to go. Thanks so much for your patience!! (Your emails crack me up! I promise I'll get to it!!!!) You can catch up by on the first three posts by clicking on the Oprah label/tag over on the right side of the blog.

So...what's the skinny??? Or fat...or phat...SUCH a fabulous giveaway!!!

Some of my very, very, VERY favorite peeps are helping me out and you are gonna luh-uh-UHV it!

I have actually tossed and turned a little bit about what order to put these fabulous prizes in...they all deserve TOP billing!!!

Are you familiar with Erin Condren
I am on my second year of using the life planner and I am in LOVE.  I tried to use my phone and some digital apps to plan my life and I just wasn't able to make that transition. Maybe 2014? Or maybe I'll stick with E.C.

I love to carry my clipboard around my room while recording student data for math and writing. The back of the clipboard has the pattern of my life planner. LOVE.

The notecards and notepads are also so fun! The notecards are heavyweight cardstock and come with the address labels. Both the cards and notepads have a plastic carrying case which protects them when they're in your purse, car or bag.

Fabulous Prize #1...

==========
Are you looking for some FAB digital backgrounds or clip art? Or even a blog makeover? The absolutely terrific Alicia from Dreamlike Magic designs offers all kinds of other digital cuteness, too, so make sure and check her out!

Fabulous prize #2...


==========
Please tell me you are familiar with Ashley Hughes...The School Supply Addict! She is SUPER talented. Sick talented. Her Visual Directions Cards have SAVED me. SAAAVVVEEEDD me. I also love her clip art and backgrounds and her darling blog!

Fabulousness #3...


 ==========
My next friend has made the TOP 10 on TpT for the last few weeks!!! Her American Heroes Unit, which I had the privilege of editing, has made a huge splash on TpT and I am so so SOOOO proud of her and happy to call her my friend!

Fabulousness #4...
Are you following her darling blog yet? I also got to edit her Chinese New Year pack and she rocked it again. I'm looking forward to Feb. 10th in my class and if you win, you will too!


==========
Another buddy (and my not-so-secret crush), Greg Smedley, is also helping me out! I just love this guy! He is super fun, amazingly creative and deliciously sarcastic. His blog posts put a smile on my face every. single. time.

Fabulousness #5...
Go and buy his Snow Unit!!! It is SUCH fun and, of course, Common Core aligned!

==========
You might have seen Linda Kamp's recent feature on TpT for reaching the $20K milestone. I'm telling you...she earned every penny FOR A REASON. Creative is an understatement for this kind, thoughtful friend of mine.

Fabulousness #6...
She is hosting a Suess-ish giveaway right now, so make sure to head over and maybe even let her know I sent ya! And, if you haven't seen her Tomie dePaola Unit you DEFinitely need to check it out!


==========
Almost last, and certainly not least, is another favorite...Susan Moran of TGIF is a total ROCK star! I own just about everything she sells on TpT and can also attest to her kindness and generosity. She is one amazing teacher and creator extraordinaire!

Fabulousness #7...

This up and coming blogger, Khrys Bosland of Keepin It Kool In Kinderland, has some fab products in her TpT store, including some darling clipart! She's recovering from surgery so make sure you go give her some lub!

For the last set of prizes...
You might be interested in my Building STAR Readers for Reading Workshop, Personal Narrative Writing Workshop Unit or my Friendly Letter Writing Workshop Unit. If you win, you'll also get Common Core Crunch for February!

You can read more about it here on this post...it's selling wonderfully right now and I'm already thinking about what skills to include in the March set.

Gulp...you're ALMOST there!

Please consider linking up with Katie and I for the February installment of our Shout Out Linky party...it will be live beginning Friday, February 1st!

K....here's the Rafflecopter...and....GO!
