As I battled the last few days of school before break with strep throat and a sinus infection, I found myself leaning more and more on purchases from TpT. The more I use that site, the more I love it. There are so many wonderful teacher-created materials out there from so many creative teachers, and I feel good knowing that the money mostly travels back to teachers in the trenches every day like me. That's why I'm happy to be linking up with Casey over at Second Grade Math Maniac for the Welcome Winter Sale. This weekend, everything in my TpT store will be 20% off, and if you go to her blog, you'll see all of the other stores that are linking up. (As of this post, there were already over 50 stores hosting the sale, so it looks like I'll be shopping, too!)
I'm in the midst of last minute packing, cleaning, shopping, and wrapping before venturing 800 miles north with my husband, one-year old daughter, and two dogs. We're going to visit family in Michigan for a bit, so this will likely be my last post of 2012. I hope everyone has a safe and joyous holiday, and I look forward to what 2013 has in store!
