Mile High TPT Meet Up: Recap!

Mile High TPT Meet Up: Recap!  AND... Swag Bag Give Away!!

Keep reading to find out how to win a swag bag full of classroom goodies!

Last Saturday I got to meet up with other TPT sellers in Denver!  It was so exciting because I have never talked to anyone who sells on TPT.  I even got to catch up with Nicole, who I have known since I was little.  Check out her store: The Craft of Teaching.

The meet up was at the RIO.  I loooooove the RIO!  Don't worry- I only had one or two mini margaritas.  I kept myself under control!  Ha ha!  Now as for the chips....  I might have ate a couple baskets by myself....

...why IS the rum always gone?
Ha ha- replace RUM with CHIPS!  Chips are my addiction...

It was so motivating and the meet up was FULL of energy!  I was surrounded by amazing teachers and authors.

We also got freebies!  One of my favorite freebies were these magnetic subject signs.  I think I will use them for my learning target board.  It should be perfect!  They will replace the colored targets or maybe the subject names.  We will see!  Here's my learning target board now:

These are the magnetic subject labels from Learning Resources;

I think they will be cute on my board!

Another favorite goodie that was in the bag were scented pens and pencils!  I am such a little kid- I just love these!  They are from Scentco.  Click here to explore their yummy website!

Another product that I was introduced to was the BEST pencil sharpener!  I ordered one in pink today.  Every teacher there was talking about it- and I was like "WHAT?"   I think I am the last teacher to hear about this amazing pencil sharpener!  You can get one here: click here.
Here's the sharpener I ordered:

I was told to make sure I watch a Youtube video to learn how to use this AMAZING device.  Here's the video I watched: Click here.  You should watch the video- this little contraption is sooooo cool!  I am interested to see how well this works in my 6th grade classroom.  I might just keep it for me...

Anyways, back to the meet up!

Ashley and Nicole picking names for the raffle
Ashley Cook put everything together.  She is so amazing.  She did all of this- and she has twins!  She said she did it all during nap time... but I think she has super powers of some kind!  Check out her blog here: click here.

Here are some of the winners of our raffle:

We also did the coolest thing- a favorite teaching supply exchange!  You brought in a gift that was $5-$10 that was your favorite teaching supply.  Then everyone drew numbers and got a gift!  It was kind of like a white elephant exchange.  I think the one below is hilarious!  She got Black Velvet- one of my favorite teaching supplies!  Just kidding.

So.... now is the time for me to tell you about the swag bag!  In the swag bag you get pens, pencils, magnets, clips, back seat pockets, a lanyard and a bag to keep it all in!  The subject magnets above are in there.  Also, there are scented pens and pencils!  What do you have to lose?
