Celebrate Good Times Come On!

This past week was huge for me!  I moved into a new apartment and I LOVE it!  I've been living with my parents for the last few months saving up money and paying off bills. It is so nice to be on my own again.  I missed feeling independent.

It was also a huge week for me in blog land too!  I had a great sale at Teachers Pay Teachers this weekend, thanks to you guys!  I loved running the Buy 2, Get 1 Free Special because I was able to read so many sweet emails from you guys.  I love hearing from you.  I also hit 1,000 Facebook Fans AND 1,000 TPT Followers!  I still am in shock, not going to lie!  You guys truly are awesome and I really appreciate all of your sweet comments and emails!

So, you know how I love to celebrate.....so....


I wanted to give away something near and dear to my heart.  Seriously I love it.  I adore it.  I don't know how I lived without it.  
I love this little Scotch laminator.  You may say, "well I have one at school, why do I need one at home??"  
That is exactly what I used to say.  I even have a pretty good laminator at school.  Here are some of the downfalls of the one at school. 
1. It is never heated up when I need it. 
2. The lamination is thin and doesn't last more than a year or two. 
3.  I can't get to it at 11 PM when I remember I need something the next day (or find something awesome on TPT!)  

Have I sold you yet?  Here's mine in action tonight. I needed to laminate my new Valentine's Task Cards, as well as Nicole Shelby's adorable Mystery Vocab Signs



So, here's your chance to have your very own. Enter the Rafflecopter below to win your very own laminator and two items of your choice from my Teachers Pay Teachers Store!  You have until Monday night to enter.  :)

I am not representing Scotch in anyway, but I just love mine! :)

  4. Congrats on all of your followers! The teacher item I can't live without is books. Not sure that counts as an "item" but it's the best I can come up with right before bed. {And lately I've been in need of new/more Expo markers, so that's up there on my list too!}

  29. Hey Amber!! Congratulations, you go girl!! The item I cannot live without would also be my laminator! However, I would love to ship my old one to school (for me and the other teachers to use) and to keep a brand new one at home.. that would be amazing and I'd be able to share the wealth at school since we don't have one or many supplies like that :) Thanks for the opportunity!!

    1. I love my small paper trimmer. Scissors would probably be faster for most things but I like the straight, even lines.

    2. I love the felt idea- I'm going to buy some today and tomorrow I'm throwing away all of the old socks the kids currently use!

  59. Congratulations on the milestone. I don't think I could pick one thing (I do love school supplies of all sorts), but if I must, I'm with one of your first commenters in saying books. I couldn't teach without them.

  64. I am a first year teacher, just finished student teaching in November and started my first job in January. The one thing at this early point I have noticed I can't live without is my planner. I feel like I have so many things going on all the time and I am such a planner, i have to keep it all straight some how!!
