Last Saturday I was able to partake in my first TPT meet up, and it was a great first experience.
Around 2 dozen Colorado sellers got together in southern Denver at Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant for some great discussion, fun exchanges, and lots of laughs. It was such a thrill to finally meet Leah Popinski, Pamela Kranz, Jean Martin, and many other sellers, not to mention Ashley Cook of Teaching in Bronco Country who put our festivities together and did a stellar job. I was really glad to meet some friendly faces before I head to Vegas for the big conference in July.
We had a delightful lunch and then partook in a school supply white elephant exchange. I got giant post-it notes; I didn’t even know they existed that large. I gave away a package of my favorite flair pens, some post-it notes, and a bag of M&Ms. By the way, these are affiliate links. I am an Amazon Associate, and I earn from qualifying purchases.
Once the school supply exchange was over, we then had a raffle for great prizes donated by awesome companies. A big thank you goes out to Learning Resources, Little Knits Studio, Lakeshore Learning, Scentco, BIC, GoNoodle, Learning Expeditions, Gifts By Gaby, Classroom Friendly Supplies, KristyBear Designs, and Plan Book.
If that wasn’t enough we also got an incredible swag bag full of great items to use in our classrooms. My favorites were the assortments of pens and pencils from Bic and the scented pen from Smens. What can I say, I’m an office supply-aholic. In fact that Bic Atlantis pen you see there, just to the left of center, is A.MA.ZING! It writes like a dream!
