Sunday Smorgasbord {Random Thoughts from the Weekend} and a Giveaway!!

I am excited to try out my first linky party tonight since I have been super busy this weekend with a bunch of random stuff! So, what could be a better first link-up than Michelle’s (Fabulous in First) Sunday Smorgasbord? I seriously think that this link-up is perfect for me because my brain is in random mode 99.9% of the time! Also, there may be a nice little surprise for those that read my entire post!


I was nominated for a Liebster Award way back on Friday! I was super excited! I found some great new blogs while looking for other blogs with fewer than 200 followers and I hope to get on top of answering the questions my nominator, LaTasha (Life in 6th Grade with Ms. V) came up with, create new questions for my nominees and then let them know I nominated them!

And, the reason I got absolutely nothing done this weekend….I took a trip to Springfield, IL! I am going to be the Vice President of NIU’s Student Education Association (which is our local chapter of the Illinois Education Association and the National Education Association) and the President, Treasurer and I ventured on down to the capitol for a weekend of training at the IEA Professional Development center. It was a lot of fun, we learned a lot and we are all extremely excited to breathe some more life into our university’s chapter!

Totally not my picture! I snagged it from Wikipedia since I didn’t grab a pic when we drove by. Pretty though, isn’t it?


My most FAVORITE thing from this weekend was volunteering Saturday night with other IEA student members at Springfield Sharefest while we were there. This was my first experience helping out at a Sharefest event, I guess there have been events like this in Rockford too, and I can’t wait for the next opportunity to help out! It was a great experience helping be a part of the extreme school makeover at McClernand Elementary. If you are close to Springfield and want to volunteer to help or just want to learn more about Springfield Sharefest, check out their Facebook page or their website! Here is the Rockford Sharefest Facebook page and website

First I helped paint some boards for new safety coat hooks and then I helped paint a hallway inside white. It really brightened up the hallway!


I have a TON of ideas for new TpT clip art and digital papers (I’m thinking of making bulletin ‘borders’ clipart!) and some exclusive book log FREEBIES for my freebies page. I will try my hardest to get at least one new freebie up tomorrow sometime!


I’m feeling pretty generous after this weekend and am thankful for all my new followers, sooooo I want to try something new. I want to give away five FREE sets of my digital papers in colors of your choosing. So, leave me a comment below with your ideal two-five color choices and I will send you my 12 digital papers for free! After that I plan on putting the packs up on TpT for $1 each.
