100 Followers Giveaway…It’s HUGE!




I’m celebrating 100 followers! I’m so glad I discovered blogs last summer!  My classroom has been lovelier and my instruction more inspired every since! I hope my little blog can do the same for some of you.


With this giveaway, I’m celebrating my followers. Some of you have been there since nearly the beginning, thank you! Others have joined over time, thank you! Those of you who take the time to leave comments and email, THANK YOU! I love getting comments and emails!


I am absolutely blown away by the generosity of my fellow bloggers!  Many of you reached out and offered to help, others when I asked for a donation were only too happy to help!  “MUCHAS gracias” to every single one of you who has generously donated to my giveaway.  Check out all the contributors (amazing, I know!):



This giveaway is a great chance for you to win products and fun stuff from super established bloggers and some newer bloggers who can’t wait to show you what they can do!  Instead of having about 50 little winners, I am choosing to have 6 BIG winners through 6 different giveaways that you’ll find below.  I’ve tried to keep the giveaways fairly equal in value, but make sure you go through all of them as each is amazing!  You can enter each giveaway or just those that interest you.


Because there are so many established bloggers donating, my hope is that it is easy to quickly go through the rafflecopter entries, since you probably follow a lot of their blogs and shops already.  You may have to take time to follow some of the newer blogs and shops.  But it’s worth it, and they’ll really appreciate seeing their numbers go up! 


The giveaway begins Sunday, July 15, and ends at midnight on Saturday, July 21 (technically Sunday, I suppose).  I will announce the 6 winners on Sunday, July 22.
