A Giveaway Just for YOU!

This is the time of the year that I typically get overwhelmed and just worn out.  There's not much of a break between Christmas and Spring Break.  And we are going on two years now without a single snow day.  Talk about depressing!

I have thought long and hard about what my very first giveaway would look like.  After a lot of pondering, I decided to treat YOU!  Not your students (directly).  Not your classroom (directly).  Instead, I came up with an idea to throw a sweet little giveaway that is a little something for you!

So what all is included?  

A rainbow rhinestone lanyard from Doliphine!  She has such a huge selection.  I ordered a gray one and brown one for myself!  A little sparkle can make any day better, in my opinion!  ;)

 I'm also giving away a necklace, complete with 3 (real) Swarovski crystal beaded balls handmade by me!  It's my newest hobby!  These tiny little beads are threaded and strung by hand.  It takes about 15 minutes for me to create one.  My first one took 2 hours!

And last but not least, since I'm a Scentsy consultant I thought I would give away ONE warmer and THREE Scentsy bars!  The new Spring/Summer catalog comes out March 1st for the public.  Instead of picking one out to give away, I decided it was way too hard to pick one, especially when I don't know what YOU will like!  That's why I'm letting you choose everything! :)  And let me just say, the new catalog has the BEST new warmers and scents!  I am SOOOO excited about it!  I have 2 Scentsy warmers in my classroom.  In case you don't know what Scentsy is, they are a line of wickless, flameless candles!  You put a couple of scented wax into the top of the warmer, turn it on (just like a lamp), and the warmth of the lightbulb melts the wax and gives off an amazing scent!  The wax gets hot, but it won't get hot enough to burn you.  In my demonstrations I always dip my fingers into the wax to show that it's completely safe.  ;)

If you ask me, there's no way you can go wrong on winning any one of these!

So how do you enter?  Enter through the Rafflecopter below!  :)  The winners will be picked on VALENTINE'S DAY!  The giveaway will close on midnight Wednesday.  I will choose 3 winners (one for each prize) when I get home that evening!  :)  If you're chosen, I will send you an e-mail to get your mailing address to send you your goodies!  :)
