Back to School Blogger Exchange Linky Party

Last month some teachers participated in a Back to School Blogger Exchange hosted by Katie from Adventures of Ms. Smith and myself. 

Participants were paired up and emailed some information about their partner's favorite things, and the teachers were set loose to shop for their partners. Packages have been arriving on doorsteps all over the country and bloggers are linking up here to share their goodies! 

My partner was the fantastic Jessica from Mrs. Heeren's Happenings. She did a great job shopping for some of my sparkly favorites! My package even included glitter tissue paper- love it! 

I am so excited about all of my items! The Scentos stamps aren't in the picture above because I took them to school to use on a project and left them there before getting a picture. I used the chevron Washi tape on my name popsicle sticks and love it! A big huge ThAnK YoU to my partner!

These items definitely make the beginning of school a little brighter! I had fun getting to pick out items for my partner and checking out a bunch of new blogs in the process.

Thank you also to Katie from Adventures of Ms. Smith for co-hosting with me! 

If you participated in the Back to School Blogger Exchange and are ready to share your treasures, link up below!

  5. aw this is such a *fabulous* idea!!! I'm sad I missed out :(

    I hope you host another blogger exchange next year, I'll be first in line to sign up! It's so much fun giving gifts to other inspiring teachers...especially since no one else seems to understands how exciting it is to simply get a new set of markers at the beginning of the year. What a high. haha!

    Great idea!!

  12. The package that I sent to my partner came back undeliverable. I can't find the email the address was in so I don't know if I wrote it wrong or if it was a postal screwup.

  13. I just stumbled upon your linky party of everyone sharing their surprises - man! I'm bummed I missed out on this! Are you planning on doing any other blog exchanges?
