Old Dog....New Tricks

Can you teach an old dog new tricks?  Some days I wonder.

Example number one....this bunny is from my old files when I first taught Kindergarten 28 years ago (it was a thermofax ditto that I made a copy of today, so that it would go through the machine we now use to run off construction paper).  Yes it is old...but so am I and my kiddos loved it.

Example number has taken me nearly two weeks to get brave enough to figure out how to use raffle copter. I have 100 followers and that means it must be time for a celebration.  I wanted to be up front and fair, so rather than having my husband pick a number out of a hat (I'm low tech like that) I am trying to use raffle copter.

Since I don't have any products for sale just yet (so far everything is free) I thought I would give away signed copies of two books by my favorite author.  My favorite author is Patricia Thomas.  I have an inside I thought signed copies of the book might be fun.  The two books up for grabs are Stand Back Said the Elephant I'm Going to Sneeze and Nature's Paintbox.

What do you have to do to win?  Follow me here...on Facebook....and at my TpT store.  Leave me a comment and increase your chances of winning.  I will pick the winner (or rafflecopter will actually) Monday, April 1st.  That somehow seems appropriate since trying to figure this giveaway thing out makes me feel more than a little foolish.  And now that the weekend has passed...I want to give everyone more time to enter. So I will pick winners on April 1st.  Good Luck!
