Thankful for Blessings! Giveaway!

This has been a wonderful week for me! I have almost finished up all of my assessments, our school fundraiser went well (I am PTA president and pretty much only member, so the fundraiser was a big weight on my shoulders!) and I received two wonderful packages in the mail!

The first is from my bloggy buddy Allie, aka The Gypsy Teacher! A while back she had a Pay It Forward post that I commented on. Well this week I got my gift package from her - it came with the sweetest note and all of this:

 3 bottles of hand sanitizer, with the little rubber thingy so I can actually clip it to my purse and not lose it - love! A scented candle, cute gloves, turkey tissues and sugar-free candies! do I feel loved or what? I am beyond pleased and so grateful to Allie - she made my day! Please go check out her blog and leave her some love too - she has some great ideas and the cutest hair clips in her Etsy store!

Next up, I came home on Friday to find a box from Oriental Trading on my front porch. Only, I hadn't ordered anything from OT in a while. Imagine my surprise to open it and find all these goodies:

 Star Student pencils, stickers, hall passes, book marks and certificates!

Rainbow colored baskets and large book holders!

I got these gifts as part of their blogger program! Now let me just add the disclaimer that, if I didn't truly like Oriental Trading and their products, I wouldn't be promoting them - regardless of what they sent me! But, I have shopped at OT before and I love their stuff! Each time I've ordered my purchases arrive quickly, accurately and well packaged. I even have a few things in my shopping cart for our next PTA carnival :)

OT also sent me a gift card that I can giveaway! How cool is that?! One lucky winner will receive this $25 Oriental Trading gift card - just in time to buy some cute holiday stocking stuffers!  Use the rafflecopter form below to enter :)

In the midst of all this excitement, I have managed to do a little bit of work as well. I finished up my "Turkey Time! A Thanksgiving themed Common Core Aligned Measurement Pack!" that I am just in love with! It covers measuring height and width, time to the hour and half hour, graduated order, tally marks and graphing!

I also made a Thanksgiving Roll & Cover Addition and Subtraction games set - my students love these!



Next up on my to-do list is a Winter themed Ten Frames pack for January! I am thinking along the lines of penguins, snowmen and polar bears. Any other Winter themes I should include? Also, I'm having a flash giveaway on my Facebook page today - just hop over and leave a comment under this post and you could win my turkey time pack!

Whew! Alright, time for the giveaway! May the odds be ever in your favor!(This review is based strictly on my opinion. Others may have a different opinion or experience with the product listed above. I was provided the sample free of charge by the company or PR agency and I provided my honest opinion. No other type of compensation was received for this review.)
