Long Time No See & A GREAT Sale!!

Well, it's been quite a LONG time since I've done any blogging! This past school year was pretty draining and I just didn't have the drive to do anything outside of my classroom walls. But with summer break, comes rejuvenation and the desire to want to get back into the things that I enjoy most!

I'm going to try my best to get back to blogging faithfully on this blog and my crafting blog as well. I think if I just make myself schedule time to do them, I'll be more apt to sticking to some sort of schedule. I also have some things I want to work on to add to my TPT store.

My real purpose for stopping in today was to share a GREAT deal that I ran across! In following so many blogs my interest has been piqued in deciding whether or not a I should purchase a personal laminator. I've been contemplating this for a while, and my interests has become more heightened over the past week as I've begun to think about getting things prepared for my classroom for next year. I know, I know, I've only been on summer break for 2 weeks, and I'm already thinking about next year. A teacher's work is never done! But it's fun to start to think about decorating and things I want to do better in the coming year.

Oh yea, I digressed, back to the laminator issue! :)

So I've done lots of research, ok not lots, but enough to finally decide that I was going to take the leap and get my own laminator. We have one at my school that we are able to use, but like most schools, it takes FOREVER to heat up, and I'm not always that patient when I want to quickly get things done! With my own laminator I'll be able to have things done prior to getting to school, and that will save valuable time, in the beginning of the year and all throughout.

The company MyBinding.com, has the laminator that I have seen shared and discussed by many of the bloggers that I follow. So this morning I decided to just go on the site and just confirm that it was really the one that I wanted. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the laminator I've been looking to get, was on SALE!!! I of course had to jump on it right away and place my order! You can see what I'm talking about by going HERE.

So now I have to sit and wait for it, but I'm willing to be patient for this one! :)

Well I'm off to organize my office and then go spend some quality time with my teammate!!

Hope that you all have a fabulous day!!

Remember to...Always Have FUN learning!

The volunteer is awesome but sometimes it is nice to just get it done yourself! I am off to check out the sale!! Thanks for sharing!
