Another Birthday, Another Giveaway!

July is a very busy month in our family.  Besides my dad's birthday, and our anniversary, we also celebrate both of our daughter's birthdays! The girls were born less than a year apart - in fact, my youngest arrived early...on the day of my older daughter's first birthday party! Surprise! That's right, there were about 50 people at my house at a first birthday party and the only one not there was the momma (and the new sister!)
Yesterday, my "Special Day" was with this gal right here...in typical teenage fashion, she chose..."shopping." We went to lunch and got those little ears pierced too, so it was fun!
It's treats all around this week and I have one for you, too! Last year, for my own birthday, I treated myself to this little gem...
I'm sure everyone is familiar with the Cricut! I love this machine and used it often last year to create cute classroom projects and decor.  The first thing I made was a sign for the outside of my door...Last year I taught a Multi-Age-Class (hence the name MAC on the sign).  I will be making a new one this year, only with "2nd Grade" on it...but not before I make one for YOU!  It's Tuesday, and you know what that means...

Enter for your chance to win a personalized and LAMINATED (yay!) sign for your door or wall.  It will say "School" across the top, and you can have it say whatever you want on the little black board there!  Do you have a specific color theme?  No problem...we can work that in to your design, too!  All you have to do is enter for a chance to win :)  See the rafflecopter below!

Stay cool everyone! It's a HEATWAVE here in New York!!


  1. Glad you both had a great "special day!" I would love to win a personalized sign!

    1. Hi Serena! Yes we follow each other on Instagram! Love it :) Thanks for following and linking up with the Teaching Blog Circle - I follow you too and look forward to seeing your ideas :)

  4. The door sign it cute! I got a Cricut for my birthday two years or so ago, and I love it!! I was absolutely obsessed with it there for a while, but I haven't gotten my craft room unpacked/set up yet since we moved... and it's been a year already! Ugh! Haha

    Anyway. I got your tshirt in the mail. Check out my post about it here. I'll hopefully be able to get some better photos soon. :)
