Currently & more

SO if you haven't noticed...
actually I am a little over 1000
but who is counting
Yeah RIGHT!!!
(raising my hand) ME ME ME I am counting!!!
well in honor of my
I am teaming up with Troy Decoff
for an AMAZING give away!!!

well he is the brains behind the BESTEST EVA
pencil sharpener around!!!!

I recently got one and I am in LOVE
forget the electric ones I have
and I have 3
and I have those SUPER $$$$ ones too
and you know they only last about oh
MAYBE a year
and if some brainiac shoves in a PINKY pencil and
then you have to unplug the sharpener to get the pencil out
and then shove a straightened paperclip into the eraser
to manipulate the pinky pencil out
I am a teacher NOT Mc Gyver

or you might have that precious ding a ling that
puts in a colored pencil
(even though you have said NO COLORED PENCILS in the electric sharpeners)
and the soft lead gets all stuck in there
and then you have to push in a fresh pencil
REALLY HARD to try to force out the soft lead

with Troy's sharpener!!!!

anyways I LOVE THIS pencil sharpener...
not only is it SUPER cute BUT
it is a little QuIrKy too AND
it is also way teacher friendly!!
colored pencils and pinky pencils included

the kids LOVE it too
I put it out on Friday
and if I charged my kids a quarter for every time they sharpened their pencils
I would have like a bajillion bucks
OK maybe $33
but they really liked it too!!!

Well I contacted Troy and
being the AWESOME guy that he is
(did I mention he is a teacher too)
he donated 2 pencil sharpeners
for me to give AWAY
will get ONE sharpener each
(I will use the random # thingy to pick the winners and post it on the 23rd of Jan.)
and really I have to say I am a bit jealous because
I want to enter to win

I want one at every group
every corner
this is not your typical sharpener peeps
check it out....

OK here is what you have to do to enter...
just join the linky party!!!
easy right!!!

here is mine...

and here is yours..if you want to use it...
and remember you do not have to use this to enter
just write it out on your blog
and just in case you do not know what
OLW is
it means....
One Little Word...
if you are still not sure what that is...

OK what are you waiting for... link on up :)
loving me
and allowing me to be me

  6. Yeah for 1,000 followers! I am anxiously awaiting for when I will get to 500. I am a little over half way right now! I hope I win the pencil sharpener! My kiddos spend way too much time with that! I also despise the pinky pencils.

  8. I will link up tomorrow for sure! I can't wait to enter the giveaway for that sharpener. I debated buying my kids mechanical pencils and just putting lead at my supply table for when they need it. No more sharpening. I can't stand it. AT ALL. And pencils are getting worse and worse!!!
    Anyways, I think I popped by yesterday when I noticed your 1000 ---- hooray! I'm so happy for you!! You rock!!!!!

And here I always thought I was pretty good with my computer skills...boo hoo. lol So since I don't know how to put it on my blog the right way, I'll just put it here and just mention your linky party. :)
