April Currently~and Giveaway Winners :)

First up...it's April already.  Well, I really don't mean "already" because I've been dying for it to get here.

How about you?

Spring break is still a week a way and, well....check out my thinking:

Listening:  I've missed you sweet, sweet birds :)

Loving: Oh, to be outside again.  I might be on my computer, but at least I'm outside :)

Thinking:  'Nuf said

Wanting:  Who doesn't love spring clothing?  Finally able to put the drab winter clothes aside and pull out some fun, colorful spring clothes...which means, I'd love to get a few new things.

Needing:  'Nuf said

Advice:  The advice was for blogging/ selling/ creating, etc.  I only have one piece of advice and it's something I've been saying a lot to/with some of my favorite bloggy buddies.  I blog because I love it.  If I keep that in mind then everything else that comes along with it is just "gravy".  {Or icing on the cake...whatever.}

Now for my winners:

Over the weekend, I finished an item for my store {finally}.  

I posted that I would give it away to 5 people on Saturday.  Well, Saturday came and went....so if you commented {here} already, I'm sending it to you.  Thanks for being loyal followers and for commenting often :)

Happy April everyone!

Head on over to link up with Farley :)

  9. Hi Dear Elizabeth:

    The birds were singing at my house too! (Do you think they are cousins with the birds at your house?!)
    I thought I was the last one to go on Spring Break, but now I see that you are not there yet. While I want the week to go slowly, I'll pray it hurries up a little just for you!
    Sending you big hugs!

  10. I love the spring weather and birds too but I must say I have some very noisy birds outside my bedroom window. They don't sound so lovely when you are trying to sleep in on a Saturday! You can make it to Spring Break, I know you can!

  11. I need to do some spring shopping too. I am ready for some warm weather and bright colors! Great advice about blogging. It is important to remember that is supposed to be something you enjoy!

  12. It was fun to read what you're CURRENTLY up to ... I had to laugh because I cannot imagine you hurting anyone! Great advice about blogging ... the rest is gravy ... yep, spot on.

    Happy shopping!


  13. I'm glad you're enjoying the weather and you are SO close to break!!! Happy almost Tuesday (and therefore almost midweek) my wise friend! :) :)

  14. Hang in there! The week before a break can be so stressful, but it will be totally worth it next week! Hope the weather stays nice!


  15. Hey I started running about two years ago when someone said " oh there is no way you could run a half marathon" we'll I've done two since and never felt better. But what helped me starting is using the Nike app for running. Keeps track of things, allows for people to leave motivational things you can hear while running,etc. it is great! Good luck!

  16. Wow! I can't believe you have another week until Spring Break. I don't know if I could have held out that long. A few years ago we had a late Spring Break, around the end of April and I almost committed murder! LOL!

    I used to be runner....sigh. Since I moved to my new school, I haven't run at all (which is in about 2 years). I really miss it, but my new schedule isn't allowing it. My goal is to purchase a treadmill so that I can at least start back running inside. And because I'm not running, I definitely need new clothes.....:-(

    It's exciting to find another SC teacher! Have a great last few days.

  17. So excited that the warmer weather is finally here! I feel like it's been too long! Especially living in NC. I totally figured it would be warm by now! (Or at least it was last year!!) I love your advice! It's important to love what your talking about- if you love it, others will too! Looking forward to keeping up with you!

  18. Hi Elizabeth! We are FINALLY just getting some spring time weather where I live, and I'm loving listening to the birds also. :) Enjoy that spring break! The time flies by way too fast! Your new measurement lapbook looks awesome!


  19. Have fun shopping for some new clothes. I live in WI and it has been a LONG winter with snow and cold the whole month of March. I'm on Spring Break in FL and hope to return to no snow and warmer temps. Enjoy the remainder of the school year.

  20. Spring shopping sounds like a fabulous idea!!! I need to add that to my list of things to do before spring break is over!! Hang in there, friend... you are almost on spring break! And I'm sure I'll be jealous of you next week when I am back in the classroom!! :)
