25 Days of Giveaways - My Turn!

Hey y'all!!

My Sparkies and I have been working hard to give you 25 Days of Giveaways, and today it's my turn!

I'm giving away one of my FAVORITE things - $10 to Dunkin' Donuts! If you're headed back to school on Monday, you're definitely going to need a pick-me-up, and if you're already off like me why not use it to treat yourself while you're out shopping??

Hop on over to enter --- you only have 24 hours!

See you there!

Uncommonly Awesome Gifts for Co-Workers

How many of you are still shopping for Christmas presents like me? I refuse to stress out over Christmas this year. I am going to do as much shopping as possible from the comfort of my couch. :)

So when the folks at Uncommon Goods contacted me about a sponsored post, I was really excited. When I started to click around on their site I realized I had shopped with them last year --- and the year before that, too!

One of the things I love about Uncommon Goods is that they are dedicated to selling products that are do not cause harm to people or animals. They ask their suppliers to be socially and environmentally responsible, and they make sure to do the same thing themselves. 

Let me show you some of my *favorite* things I found while I was shopping for this year's gifts!


As much as I used to enjoy being crafty and baking for others at the holidays, I just don't have time this year. Not even a little bit. Maybe next year when my little man is a little bigger. So this year I've been on the hunt for some gifts I can give to my teammates at work that don't break the bank. Here are a few of my favorites from Uncommon Good's Co-Workers Collection...


I love the set of Pop Top glasses. Split them up as individual gifts by filling them with candy and  a matching flair pen. Best of all - they're on SALE! The staple-free staplers and iPhone Charger Sticker sets would also be easy-to-split purchases that would make fun and unique gifts for your teammates.

Also, Percy the Pencil Porcupine?? I die.Can you imagine this in your classroom?? I used to buy a "class gift" and if I was still in the classroom, this would definitely be this year's winner. ;-) 

Last year, I found the perfect stocking stuffer for my husband AND my brother-in-law.

My husband keeps ticket stubs from just about every event that he's ever been to. When we met, he put them all in a shoe box. Every. Single. One. When I saw the ticket stub diary, I knew it was perfect for him! Friends, it kept him busy for HOURS one night while he organized them chronologically. Do you know how many episodes of Gilmore Girls I watched in peace??? You're welcome. ;-)


This year, I'm thinking about a Solar Powered Phone Charger and a Hobo Roll Stuff Sack for his hiking adventures. However, he just pointed out the razor sharpener and a wooden beer caddy... perfect for BYOB parties!

They also have their inventory organized by gifts for the family if you're still looking for someone!

Here are a few more finds I discovered for my littlest man, my sisters, and maybe even ME!

My little guy has a sock monkey nursery, so when I saw the sock monkey blanket I may or may not have *squealed*! He's also a big fan of learning to hold a crayon these days, and the Playon Crayons are perfect for his little fingers! Also pictured: chalkboard placemats, construction plate set, and shapes tablet game.

Do you SEE the family cameo portrait?? That would make SUCH a good grandparent gift! It makes me want one for my house too --- those are PRECIOUS!

For my sisters, I'm loving the upcycled sari jewelry roll. I really like that each one is unique so that we can tell them all apart.

I'm definitely getting a set of those baby milestone cards --- only for my sister it'll have to be the TWINS set. How cool are those?? No more sticker fights with the baby!!

Now get your shop on! I'm ready to click "checkout" on those baby milestone cards and a few other goodies as well!!

Christmas Task Card FREEBIE! NEW!

People, it is Sunday.

My pile is WAAAAY too high, but I have an amazing husband who has entertained our baby, done laundry, and kept me sane so that I could bring you a brand new freebie.


There are twelve task cards covering addition and subtraction with 2 and 3 digit numbers. I've also added a recording sheet you can use. Put them on a ring at a math center, or if your kids are like mine, spread them out around the room and hallway and LET THEM MOVE. ;-) All the sugar bugs in the world are in your classroom right now, am I right? I swear they are all eating gingerbread men for breakfast.


You could also put out 4 different cards each day for 3 days. Break up the work, but they still get extra practice and you can collect it for a grade if you need to!

Hope this is a fun new freebie that's helpful for you. Click on any of the pictures above to grab it from TpT. Leave some love for me in the feedback!
