Be My Valentine {2012 Exchange}

Sarah and I are back and ready for yet another fun exchange!  We had tons of fun organizing the Christmas exchange and seeing all of the amazingly cute things you guys made and purchased for your partners.  We have a few exciting additions for Valentine's Day!  Check out all of the details below:

Sign Up to be a Participant:
-Sign ups begin now and close on Sunday, January 22nd.
-We will send out partners by Wednesday, January 25th.
-Craft and/or shop and send out your gift by February 6th to make sure it arrives in time.
-$10 limit, excluding shipping.  Be creative and fun!
-Please make sure that you follow through if you sign up.  It's no fun to work so hard on creating a special gift for a new friend and not receive one in return!
-Our Canadian friends will be able to participate as long as there are other Canadian friends!  Please note in the subject if you are from Canada.
-To sign up, email the questionnaire below to teacherbloggerexchange@gmail.com by January 22nd.

Class Exchange:
We are also organizing a class valentine exchange.  More details will come on this in the next couple of days.  If you are interested in participating in this part of the exchange, please send an email to teacherbloggerexchange@gmail.com with "Class Exchange" in the subject line.  Include your state, grade level, and number of students in your class.

Sign up to Sponsor a Giveaway!
The giveaways for Holly Bloggy Christmas were so much fun!  This time, we plan to do a giveaway each day from February 1st through Valentine's Day!  Simply participating in the exchange will be your entry for each giveaway.  We will use random.org to choose a winner each day.  But...to make this happen, we need some fabulous sponsors!  We want to give away some units/products for K-2, some for 3-5, and then some things that are just plain fun like gift cards, jewelry, decor, etc.  If you would like to sponsor a giveaway, please fill out this form.  We will select sponsors by January 22nd.  Sponsors will be mentioned in any email sent or blog post made about the Be My Valentine Exchange!

{HUGE thank you to Lauren at The First Grade Diaries for making this for me!}

Hope you will join in the fun!  As always, if you have questions feel free to leave a comment or shoot me an email!
