March SlantBox Reveal!

I love participating in the SlantBox exchange that the fabulous Jameson over at Lessons with Coffee has put together! 
The SLANT Box Exchange

It's a great way to get to know other educators or people in a teaching-related field. You get matched with a partner for the month, email back and forth to get to know each other, and then at the end of the month, send each other a box of goodies based on a theme. 

This past March was the fourth time that I participated in the SlantBox exchange. It was so much fun! I was paired up with Maja from Kooky Kinders. You have to go check out her blog! It is adorable! She is the coolest kindergarten teacher ever! She dresses up for her students, makes cool food crafts, and her students always look like they are having a blast! On her blog she writes about the fun happenings in her class. You need to check it out!

I loved getting to know Maja! We have so much in common! I feel like I've known her forever! She seems like an old friend, who I just haven't talk to in awhile. We both love our students and teaching, thrifting and antiquing, and our puppy boys!! I would love to go antiquing with her! I think we'd have a blast!! :) I love that I've met a new friend that I will have forever! I am so happy I met you Maja! 

Here is a peek at the amazing box she sent me!

There were these Big Softie letters in Cincinnati Bearcats colors! I can't wait to use them in my art journaling and a new little display I'm making at school ;)

Aren't these stickers the cutest? I love them! I mean, those squirrels, right?!

I love this little journal! The pattern on the cover and the inside paper is adorable! I can't wait to write blog ideas inside! I've been wanting a place to write down random ideas that I have for new blog posts. I've already got it in my purse ready to go! If an idea ever pops up when I'm out and about, I have a perfect place to jot down ideas! It's the perfect travel size!

Last year Bjorn and I landscaped our front yard, and I love the way everything is growing in this spring! I can't wait to go out and put flowers on my porch and start making it look even more beautiful now that the weather is getting nicer! I know just the perfect place to hang this outside! And I am so glad Maja sent this :) I'll have something in my garden to always remind me of her!

This pencil sharper is perfect! I already took it to school, and my students are obsessed with it! They have a waiting line to use it, so we have to take turns while they're working to use it! There are holes across the entire head of the pencil sharpener that allows for 7 pencils to be held and you can sharpen them too!

I love this little guy! He is symbol of luck, and I am always going to keep him with me as such. I can't wait to find a little chain for him and wear him! He's too stinkin' cute!!

And the last two things that I got in my box were chocolate!! I did eat the chocolate, however, before I managed to take pictures of it! Oops! It was so good! Maja sent me these two to enjoy:

Maja, thank you so much for my box! It is awesome! I love it! 

I am so glad I got to meet Maja and make such a sweet friend!

Happy SlantBox!

Love and happiness <3 Holly
