A GRAND Teacher Giveaway!

One of the best things about blogging is the AMAZING friends I have made throughout this adventure.  One of those friends is Ashlyn from The Creative Classroom.  Ashlyn and some of our blogging buddies have teamed up to celebrate Ashlyn's reaching 1000 followrs on TPT with this GRAND GIVEAWAY!


To get the party going we are hosting a giveaway for a $100 TpT Gift Card!  Just enter the Rafflecopter linky below for your chance to win the giveaway, which runs from today until midnight (Arizona time) Saturday night.  The winner will be announced Sunday!

AND...

We're also having a GRAND hashtag linky party on Instagram today, Friday, and Saturday!  Just visit any of our Instagrams - mine is @teachingjunkie  - and you will see a Grand Giveaway sentence starter with an image for all to use.  There will be a new Grand Giveaway sentence starter and image each of the three days.

Congratulations on the milestone to Ashlyn, and good luck to YOU!  What would YOU buy with $100 on TPT?  (I could sure do a lot of damage!!!)

Motivational Monday!

Today I am linking up with my blogging buddy, Mel from Frog Spot for a brand new Monday linky.  I don't know about you, but I could sure use a kick in the pants to get going this morning!  Gotta find my mojo!  So imagine my good fortune when one of the first emails I read was from Mel announcing this new linky.
L.O.V.E. IT!
N.E.E.D. IT!


First, I downloaded her adorable template.

I thought about who and what would motivate me today...
Made my own motivational sign...


and posted it on my Motivation Wall.


I am looking forward to participating in this weekly linky, since Positive Thinking Thursday seems to have gone away.

So, what will motivate YOU this week?  Head on over and link up with Mel!


Happy Monday!
