My Teacher Friend is on Facebook and a Giveaway Idea

Howdy Teacher Friends,
I went ahead and started a Facebook page for My Teacher Friend! It seemed like time...a month ago! That is right, I got it up and running a month ago, but neglected to spread the word at all. Maybe that is why I have a whopping 2 likes!

You can visit MTF on Facebook here.

Sidenote: Has anyone considered doing a "Favorite Things" giveaway? You know, Oprah style? I am thinking of doing a big big big bloghop giveaway for my 100 TPT followers celebration. I am at 77 now.

Here is what I am thinking:
Each participant would gather some of their favorite things. Candy, products, office supplies, etc. I would need a picture of each prize pack. We would do a hop where each person runs a Rafflecopter to win their "favorite things." The winner would be mailed your favorite things via snail mail. Interested?

November Currently

Howdy Teacher Friends, 
I am so excited to share my Currently with you today. Linking up with Farley in the first half of the month is a special thing around here! I may never be the number one spot on the linky list;)

Before I start, do you see my adorable font? I finally coughed up the dough for Hello Fonts by Jen Jones. I am kind of obsessed. This one is HelloTipToes. 

Here goes:
Listening- I can't get enough of She and Him. I have been listening to the vintage sounds of Zooey D and M. Ward all week while I toil away in my ofiice under the stairs. On a positive note, I have been in my office less this week and in classrooms more! Another plus...Dahlia is really in to vintage cartoons lately. I have been enjoying Scooby Doo, Tom and Jerry, and Disney's The Three Little Pigs this weekend. I forgot how engrossing they are! 

Loving- I awoke to a super awesome surprise! I am featured in the TPT 10 freebie newsletter!! I almost peed! I have enjoyed all of the positive feedback, climbing downloads numbers, and new followers all day! 

I am having a sale in honor of being in the newsletter! 10% everything in my store

Thinking- I am having a little get together at my house this Friday. My best friend, Nikki, lives in Texas, but she is coming into town to hang with me. While she is here, I am hosting a Thirty-one party. She is a new consultant and I just LOVE that stuff. I am so excited to have people over at my house. I have been telling people that this is my ploy to get people to come and hang out with me, and they think I am joking...but I am NOT! I am such an old granny. I love to visit, but driving after dark? No thanks! 

Here is a link to her store, in case you need to do some Christmas shopping:

Funny story. One of the last times I left my house after dark, I was pulled over for no headlights. The officer was so nice when I told him that I have a toddler and hadn't been out after dark in a long while. He laughed and asked me to be safe. I was MORTIFIED! 

Thinking: I am toying with the idea of painting. I am sure we NEED to paint. We have some drywall repairs to do anyway (regular wear and tear) and while we are at it, I think a fresh coat of paint could do a lot. I am leaning toward a gray. Any ideas?

Needing: To work on a great idea. I have been working on the same project for a lonnnnng time. I just can't get it finished the way I want. It would help to have the time to sit and actually work on it at length. Ever have one one those?

Yummy Pin:
For the party on Friday, we will be having snack and drinks and such. How does this look? You put the entire unopened can of sweetened condensed milk into a water bath in your crockpot! Anyone tried it?
Cut up some apples and voila!
