Fabulous Finds Giveaways

I'm linking up with Christy and Tammy over at Fluttering through First Grade for their Fabulous Finds Linky Party. Best part- I'm going to be able to give away my fabulous finds. YAY! Thank you Second Story Window and Candy Cottage.

First up- School Find
My must have for 2013 is any packet from Second Story Window. I just found out about this awesome store and wish I had known about it sooner.
I started 2013 with their Common Core Morning Work
It's simply amazing.

I also needed some homework and fluency homework.

Home Find- Candy Cottage Reusable Gingerbread Houses 
Nobody has time to bake and assemble a gingerbread house these days. There just isn't enough time to do it all.
But, what we all remember most about gingerbread and the holidays, is the fun of decorating. The pure enjoyment and excitement of playing with icing, candies and other creative decorations and placing them on your gingerbread house, each piece adding to a happy memory.
The Candy Cottage
® makes those great memories possible once again...without the baking..and without the assembly.
Ready to decorate, right out of the box. Simply snap it together, grab some icing, a couple of your favorite candies and let the decorating begin! And it's reusable - season after season!

Want to win one? Follow the rafflecopter below. Candy Cottage was so kind to donate a candy cottage to one lucky reader.
If you don't have any luck and still want to purchase a cottage just email me. I have a nice supply. Yesterday I brought one over to my niece and nephew. We can't wait to give it a try this week.  I will also be using one in class on Valentine's Day! 
More pics to come!
