1,000 Followers Giveaway!

I have over 1,000 followers!! That just blows my mind. Thank you all so much!
 
If you have been following my blog for awhile you know that I teach at a super cool environmental science school. We teach our students to be green every day. This year we are working with a terrific company called Mixed Bag Designs to run a reusable bag fundraiser for our school. I'm not talking small, boring bags, these are super stylish and come in every size and shape imaginable! They also have tech gear like iPad and iPhone covers (the black swirl 3GS cover is on my wishlist!)

The wonderful people at Mixed Bag Designs have agreed to give away 4 prize packages worth approximately $100!!

AND each winner will also get to select their own....
13 inch, 15 inch, or iPad 
 Wouldn't it be great to start the school year with a cute new case?

That's not all! Followers of my blog can also get FREE SHIPPING through August 17! Just type in the promo code 'first' at checkout.

Want to learn more about a fundraiser or order a catalog? Send an email to dj@mixedbagdesigns.com.
