August S.L.A.N.T.

So today was my first day back to work.  I cried so much yesterday thinking about leaving my kiddos.  This morning, I enjoyed the quiet and even got to school almost an hour early to set some things up.  It was a long, busy day and I have so much left to do before the students come on Thursday.  I was exhausted but looking forward to coming home to my kiddos...who were still napping when I walked in.  Bummer.  


Then I saw this:

S.L.A.N.T. - Sending Love Across the Nation to Teachers.  It is the most amazing brainchild of Jameson of Lessons With Coffee.  I mean, who doesn't love to get mail.  This is my second month participating and both months have been amazing!

I have met awesome teacher-bloggers that I may not have ever gotten to know.  Plus, like I said before:  Who does not just LOVE getting mail?!?  

So, I was super duper excited to open my package!  Bree from Kinder Kids did an amaaaaazing job putting this SLANT box together.  Here are a few of the highlights!

This month's theme was Hometown Pride so Bree included some Delaware stickers!

I LOVE polkadots and Bree used a lot of them in my box!  I love the headband and the orange scarf will be a perfect addition to my Syracuse Orange gear!  

How adorable are these cardstock mason jars?  They also have itty bitty polka dots.  LOVE!  I think I might spell out my last name since there are enough jars then hang the whole thing on my desk at work.

 Tieks.  Need I say more?  Bree got me a gift certificate towards a new pair of tieks.  Oooo la la!

Guess what?  There was even more!  There was a bag of Jelly Belly jelly beans that were quickly claimed by my daughter.   Bree also made vinyl cut-outs of my kids names for their bedrooms.  How sweet is that?  

Needless to say, I was spoiled this month!  Bree made my day when I got home from a long day at work.  I love my entire box!

I also met another wonderful teacher-blogger this month.  Suzanne from Create Educate Inspire is an adorable teacher from Ohio and I had fun putting together a S.L.A.N.T. box for her.  

Do you S.L.A.N.T.?  Do you want to?  You can sign up for next month's exchange at Lessons With Coffee.  You will not regret it!

  1. That does look like the perfect way to end the first day of school! I just signed up for my first SLANT box this month too - and I am super excited. I can't wait to get my match and start crafting up ideas. Thanks for sharing!
