Just a Few of My Favorite Things-SLANT Box Exchange

It is Monday! That means I have a few hours this morning to finish my room and then we have our Open House! School starts tomorrow! I know I will never sleep tonight!

In other new, SLANT is here! Last month I signed up to participate in a fun blogger exchange set up by Jameson at Lessons with Coffee. SLANT stands for Sending Love Across the Nation to Teachers.I don't know what it is about packages, but whenever one comes to my door I feel like it is Christmas! Most of the time I know what is in it, due to my book obsession, so when I receive a surprise package I can barely handle it.

The SLANT Box Exchange

Saturday, I received my package from Laura at Learning, Lessons, and Life! The theme this month was "My favorite things" so I was really excited to see what would be in my package.

Laura sent me an amazing package. The package included two snack bags and a pencil pouch that she made (in my favorite colors!)

I also received tons of fun pens, sharpies, post-its, and notepads, as well as York pieces perfect for that afternoon pick-me-up!

I really enjoyed getting to know Laura during this project. It was fun to make a new blogging friend! Thanks Laura for the amazing package!

If you are interested in participating in a SLANT exchange, be sure to head over to Jameson's blog to learn more about it. (There is a new sign-up going on right now so be sure to check it out.)

What are a few of your favorite things?
