WOW! What an amazing giveaway! I hope I win...:) Thanks for doing it...:)I really haven't done much this summer and you certainly won't be jealous! I did a LOT of cleaning & organizing....closets, etc. I went to Tallahassee where my daughter lives a couple times to visit her. We had a blast! I have been creating tons of new things for my new classroom too. Lots of yard sale & thrift store visits which I love! No vacations this summer, but next year will be a cruise!
