Soooo... I got featured on a blog.
Ya, crazy I know. AND I wouldn't exactly call it "featured", but hey, I got mentioned somewhere! Awesome. Barbara Hoskins Sakamoto from Teaching Village emailed me a few weeks ago (WOW- just looked through my email. MONTHS ago! Time flies!) about my Hope for Japan project. I haven't a clue how she heard about us, but she is an English teacher in Japan who blogs about teaching strategies and other goodies.
her blog. We raised $900 total through the sales of our hobo bags and iPod cases. $1 of each bag went to production costs, so we were able to send $700 by way of the American Red Cross. Sweet!
As much as I love being a teacher, FREEEEEEEDOM is almost here- 10 more days of school left! I haven't really done any projects or visited my usual bloggies in 3-4 weeks. I am getting restless! Will update with some projects sooooon, I promise!
On a side note, my grandma moved out of her house into a duplex (a good thing) and I was able to inherit some items from her house. I love it! It's like a little piece of her is here. Will reveal those as well. =)
