South Florida Teacher Blogger Meet-Up Sponsors and Giveaway

Two weekends ago, we had a great South Florida Teacher Blogger Meet-Up. It was absolutely amazing! I was able to meet such energetic, hardworking, and kind women.

You can read more about them in my previous post about our meet-up by clicking HERE.

Janine from Pink Ink and Polka Dots, Elizabeth Polo from  First Grade Stripes, and I were able to gather up some nice goodies from some generous sponsors to share with our guests, which as promised, I will be highlighting today. The great thing is that THREE LUCKY WINNERS will be able to win a goodie bag just like ours, PLUS a gift certificate to one of our stores. 

A special thank you to  Soy Delicious Candles, a soy candle business based right here in South Florida by two former teachers, Georgette Hoyo and Maggie Maceiras. They have about 29 different tin scents, and we were able to sample quite a few of them.  These tins are wonderful because you can take them with you on vacation, or order them as keepsakes for baptisms, showers, communions, or any other special occasions. They can even personalize them for you. They are amazing! I have personally used Soy Delicious Candles at my home, and I must say that their 'delicious' scents fill the entire room.

Greg from KindergartenSmorgasboard was more than generous in donating wonderful reusable bags, pens, and lanyards for each of us. As a teacher, you know you can never have enough of these items. If you haven't checked out his blog, you should head on over. It's no coincidence he has over 10,000 followers on Instagram. He has some wonderful ideas, and is an extremely enthusiastic teacher. Thank you Greg for supporting our meet up!

Melissa Yglesias from More Time 2 Teach was unable to attend our luncheon, but came through as a donor of ClassDojo with reusable bags. I'm sure many of you have heard of ClassDojo.  It's an online positive classroom management program that encourages positive classroom behavior. You can learn more about what their program has to offer to by checking out their website. 

Janine’sJamberry Nails donated adorable nail art.  Jamberry Nail Art is a wrap you place on your nails to easily add designs and personality to manicures. They are quick and easy to apply and come in a large variety of designs.

Bridget of Lovely Little Leaders donated some beautiful notepads to help us stay organized. Not only is Bridget a sweet heart, but she is an expert at staying organized. You can find some beautiful designs and organizational items by visiting her store.

Sheila JaneTeaching donated some wonderful inspirational messages. Her website states that her goal is add value to our busy teacher lives with helpful tools, videos, podcasts, newsletters and resources. I absolutely loved visiting her site. It’s both beautiful and inspiring.

GoNoodle, a free brain breaks website, donated some cute stickers for each of us.

We had a raffle giving away gift certificates from Lessons with Mrs. LabrascianoThe Daily AlphabetFirst Grade Blue SkiesKindergarten SmorgasboardL. Paull DesignsMiss Johnston's JourneyBuzzin Bees of Learning, and Kindergarten Boom Boom.  We received so many great donations from these sponsors that EACH of the attendees walked away with a gift certificate.
