The One With The Party

I love the blog community.  You are all so sweet and helpful.  I really believe this is one of the BEST resources we have as teachers.  Who can help you better than a fellow teacher?

Thank you all for the sweet words about my new job.  I am super excited.  God is so good!

I have something that I want to share with you.  I have a second job.  I am an independent consultant for Thirty-One.  This is a Christian based company (Proverbs 31) that sells purses, totes, and home organization items.  I recently purchased a couple of things for my classroom.

I want to share them with you, not because I'm a consultant, but because I'm excited about how they are going to help me get organized as a teacher.

My current school bag has our mascot painted on it.  I was in need of a new one since I will be at a different school next year.  It arrived a few weeks ago and I'm in love with it.  It is big enough for all my stuff, but small enough that it prevents me from taking home too much.  My favorite part is easily all the outside pockets.  They are perfect for my calculator, keys, water, and everything else.

I think I'm even more excited about this next item, especially now that I will be teaching in an elementary.  It is the Hang-Up Home Organizer.  I had it personalized to work for me.  It has five pockets - one for each day of the week.  I'm going to get some bright, fun file folders to put in each pocket.  When a student is absent I will simple place his or her work in the appropriate folders.  It will be a procedure for students to check here when they return from being absent.

One of my other favorite resources as a teacher is pinterest.  Oh My Goodness!  I waste a lot of hours on there looking for wonderful ideas.  I decided to see if I could find other Thirty-One products that were being used in the classroom.

This teacher looks completely together and organized with her products.

Because you all have been so helpful to me since I started blogging, I wanted to return the favor.  

Let's party together!  I have set up an online party just for us.  You can shop online and have your order sent directly to you.  I can't tell you how exciting it is to get home from school and find a Thirty-One box on your doorstep.  You will love it!

You can start shopping here.  But before you do I want to tell you about ways to win something for your classroom for FREE!

One of you lucky ducks will earn hostess rights for this party.  That means you have the opportunity to earn FREE products, Hostess Exclusives Items, and 1/2 Price Items!

One of you will win FREE personalization on any one item.

One of you will win 10% of your order.

When you place an order online, you will automatically be entered to win one of three great offers.

It doesn't even stop there.  If you blog about our party and invite others to join the fun, you will be entered to win FREE personalization on any TWO items!  Be sure to leave me a comment with a link to your blog post.

So what do you say?  Let's party!!

Almost forgot.  We will party until April 11.  I'll announce the winners at 7:00 Central time next Friday.


  1. I was just thinking today that I need to find out whose blog I follow that's a thirtyone consultant... this was perfect timing! Just ordered an organizing tote form you! I can't wait!

    I think the wall hanger is a great idea for makeup work... I was planning on doing something similar next year but maybe organizing it by class? (I' teach middle school). Right now I just throw all the makeup work in a tray every day with the kids' names on it... it works well enough for the time being.
