A Great Giveaway, Printer Woes, & A GoNoodle Linky!

My friend Kelly from the TpT Conference now has over 1,000 followers at her TpT store!!!!  She is celebrating by having a great big giveaway & there are 26 hours left to enter!  Each month she does a giveaway for her store followers, a $25 TpT gift card & an item from her shop.  This time you can also win 28 more items!  These have been donated by other TpTers including me! 
I am also so excited by the increase in followers to this blog.  I started the new year with 288 followers & I am now up to 313!  Welcome to those who are new to my blog...I hope that you will find something here that is of use to you!!!

If you are reading this you probably also know about one of my favorite bloggers out there...Kristin of A Teeny Tiny Teacher...if you haven't you need to check her blog out...I have had the privilege of meeting her in person several times & she is a sweetheart!! She has sent out a request on her blog for a student of hers from last year.  Jon has an inoperable brain tumor and his 8th birthday is at the end of the month...Kristin is asking for Jon to receive a bunch of birthday cards and she even has the cutest cards you can print out!!!

This picture is from her blog post about Jon's on the picture & it will take you to that can click here to learn more about Jon and the fundraiser Kristin did for Jon's family...make sure you have some tissue with you! I recall she raised around $15,000 for his family...what a blessing!!!....I plan to send Jon a card...but not only that I plan to have all of my students send a card, I plan to put print outs of the cards with envelopes already addressed to Jon in the teacher's lounge & information about this special birthday & I was trying to print out cards to take this morning to my Sunday school class so they could send some as well.....BUT......:-(......that leads to my next topic....
I blogged recently about my classroom printer dying & now neither printer in our school computer is top it all off I spent much of yesterday & today fighting with my printer at home...I was able to print out a few cards for Jon, but then the in cartridge carrier got it unstuck...then it would only print a small portion of each document I was trying to print out...then..the lights just kept flashing at me....:-(....I tried everything they suggested on HP's luck...did some research on printers and bought one online from Walmart & I am waiting for the text message letting me know that I can pick it up!...with this printer I can try HP's Instant Ink pay a monthly fee & get so many copies per month & your copies can roll over...the printer lets HP know when you need a new cartridge & they mail it to you!!!  I am going to try it...I will let you know what I think about it soon...have any of you tried this program?  I would love your feedback!!!

I am linking up with Elizabeth from Kickin it in Kindergarten for a GoNoodle Sanity Savers Linky {her button will take you to the post for the Linky}

I love all of the Koo Koo Kanga Roo Brain Breaks, but I think 'No Crust' is my favorite...I think it was the first one that I tried! Happy Place is only an hour from where I live, but in many ways is a world away...I live in the desert & I enjoy the beautiful sunrises & sunsets, although I miss the color green & seeing lots of trees...Big Bear is a resort type community in the mountains & a favorite day trip for our family...I am addicted to Clipart/Graphics & Fonts...I LOVE Lettering Delights & spend too much on all of these visual goodies!...most of us are in teaching because we love kids & want to have a positive impact on their lives so whatever we face we need to just Keep Calm & Love Those Kids!!!

Yeah!! My new printer seems to be working great!!!!
