The Liebster Award


Thank- you to Yukari from A Pinch of Kinder for nominating me for this sweet award! I first received this award a few years ago when I started blogging, and it's nice to see that it's still being passed around! Although I've been here for a few years now, I've never really been so consistent with blogging. With my recent blog makeover, my love for sharing tips and ideas has definitely been reignited! 

Let's Get Started!! 

Here are the answers to the 10 questions I recieved:

1. Why and how long ago did you start blogging?

I started in November 2011, but never really gave it my 100%, because of everything else I had going on in my life. I am hoping to get back into the swing of things!

2. What one word sums up the heart of your blog and why?

I couldn't agree with Yukari more when she said for her it is about sharing. I feel the same way. I really wanted an outlet to share ideas and offer freebies.

3. Is there something you learned late in your blog journey you wished you knew before?

Be consistent. 

4. What is your favorite past time other than blogging?

I love to organize and make sure things are neat and tidy. Everything has a place, that's my motto! Some might call it OCD though! Hahaha! 

5. How many hours a week do you dedicate to your blog?

In the past, not much. Now, my goal is to blog at least 2- 3 times a week. 

6. What category of blog posts do you enjoy the most?

I enjoy posts that assist me with meeting the standards. The CCSS is rigourous!! And a lot of times, although something looks fun and cute, I might not be able to implement it in my classroom because my admin expects almost EVERYTHING to be tied to standards. Bleh, I know. 

7. Where does your blog inspiration come from?

Definitely from my little sweeties!! 

7. Which post that you've written are you most proud of?

It has to be the post about my Black History Month products. It was my first product posted, and has since remained my best- selling product on TpT. 


8. Is there any post that you have been planning to do, but have been postponing it for a while now?

Nothing that I can think of at the moment. 

9. What is your favorite aspect of blogging?

Meeting new people has been the highlight of it all and just being able to take a peek into their classrooms is fun! 

10.  Which idea from a blog would you like to try yourself?   


I've been blog- stalking Reagan from Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits, and there are so many fun things going on over there. Her rotation boards packet is something I'm eyeing for next school year.

I'm passing this lovely award on to: 
1. Bethany from Ship Shape First Grade. She has a TON of fun ideas on her blog! I am obsessed!! 



2. KaSandra from Memories Made in First. I love the poetry picnic she recently blogged about! 


3. And finally, Jamee from Scissors and Crayons. She recently blogged about all the fun her class had learning about dinosaurs.

  1. Thanks for leaving a comment so I could check out your post! I love organizing too! Although my boyfriend always says I am "fake-organized" because I organize but I still can't find things or forget things! lol! And I know the feeling of everything needing to be tied back to the curriculum! My admin is like that too! Looking forward to following you and your ideas since we have a lot in common :)

  2. Wow, Thanks for nominating my blog!! You are right about consistency something I am totally lacking. I am getting a blog makeover this summer so I also hope it will help me stay present in the blogging world. I will work on this post tomorrow.
