You’re a busy mom. You give to others and do everything you can to better your family. That’s why we want to pamper you a little!
On top of all that you do just being you, we also have something else to celebrate. Last month Raising Sticky Hands To Heaven reached over 1,000 Likes on Facebook. What does this mean for you? TWO WINNERS!
The first winner will receive a mystery gift basket full of many goodies. You WANT this. In it you will find items that will help any busy mom relax, kick back, pamper herself a little, and think about Jesus. The gifts inside have been hand picked by our very own Karen & Emily, so you KNOW it’s gotta’ be GOOD!
The second winner is also in for a treat! (HA! Silly pun, sorry.) They will receive 1 Velata Fun Fondue Warmer and 2 bags of Velata Gourmet Fondue Chocolate. Perfect for those cold wintry nights coming up! Imagine: snuggling up on the couch with (or without 😉 ) the kids, watching a movie, and dipping your favorite snacks into melted chocolate. Mmm… Is your mouth watering yet?

(You are allowed to ask your friends to vote for you, but we please ask that you do NOT cheat. We will be monitoring the votes!) It’s all that simple.
Worried you don’t have a photo where you look picture perfect? That’s quite alright, my friend. Just be silly, goofy, crazy… anything. All we ask is that you keep it clean!

The Old Schoolhouse has so many resources to offer homeschool families. There’s The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, a FREE magazine that you can read online every month either on their website or on an app with your phone or tablet. I even read it recently on an airplane at 30,000 feet. The articles in this magazine are incredible. In fact, it’s so hard to believe it is free. The magazine is loaded with high quality articles full of advice, ideas, reviews, and sometimes even some freebies. Then there’s SchoolhouseTeachers.com, a membership website full of curricula that can either be used as supplements to what you already use or as a full stand alone curriculum for your children, ebooks, planners, and more. (If you join now, your first month is only $3! There are yearly memberships available as well.) Schoolhouse Library is the newest resource of The Old Schoolhouse. For a one time membership purchase of $25 your family has access to an entire library just for homeschooling families. And of course there is Schoohouse Review Crew ( 😉 ) among several other branches of resources. But today we are going to talk about one of my absolute FAVORITE resources, Schoolhouse Expo. No, this isn’t the monthly Schoolhouse Expos you are thinking of. Yes, those are great also… But this is the granddaddy of Expos…
While comfy on my couch, headphones on one ear, coffee in hand, and most likely my hair a horrid mess I will be listening to some of my favorite homeschool speakers for 5 days this month. I don’t have to get a baby sitter or worry about packing a suit case. Since the daily sessions begin at 10am pacific time (That’s 1pm eastern) I will have just enough time to get the kids out of bed, clothed, and fed. Chores will be done. My children can play and enjoy some games while Mom learns and equips herself for the upcoming year. (Can you guess what I’m excited about yet? I’m such a homebody… And it shows!)
Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? I would say you wouldn’t believe the price, but you’ve already seen it in the graphic above… But seriously, $24 for an expo of this size? That’s a bargain! If I were to travel (cost right there), stay in a hotel (more money), attend a conference… you get the picture. This way, I’ll be listening to speakers like Marie Rippel, Tyler Hogan, Molly Green, Jay Wile, and others while chatting with fellow homeschoolers. What if the kids interrupt, you ask? Not a problem. All sessions will be recorded and available to attendees to listen to later.
Just think, if The Old Schoolhouse Magazine is so great every month… I can’t wait to see how the Schoolhouse Expo is!
If you’re interested in attending Schoolhouse Expo, you can click here to purchase a ticket. But if you want to wait and see if you’re able to win this spiffy giveaway, that’s okay too. 😉
The winner will be announced one week from today and will have 48 hours to claim their prize. (I’ll send the winner an email, don’t worry busy moms.) Sorry, but entry is only open to those in the United States. You can see the rest of of the terms and conditions in the widget below where you enter.
Hope to “see” you there!
Disclaimer: I was given a free ticket to Schoolhouse Expo in exchange for this post.
I can’t wait to see who wins these prizes. Talk about a blessing! May the odds be ever in your favor… 😉
I have another giveaway for a free ticket to Schoolhouse Expo coming up tomorrow morning, so be sure to check back and enter that one as well. (It was supposed to post yesterday, but silly internet issues prevented that from happening. )
This all reminds me I need to make my list for what we need to purchase for our homeschool this year… What’s the item on the top of your shopping list for homeschool this year?

I don’t know about those of you that homeschool, but for me this is a crazy time of year. I scramble around trying to figure out what I’m going to do this next year and how to make it all flow smoothly. One great tool that helps me pull it all together is a planner.
The Old Schoolhouse Magazine & SchoolhouseTeachers.com (An amazing homeschool resource website owned by The Old Schoolhouse Magazine) has been gracious to offer 1 “Big Mama” planner and 1 student planner to one of our readers!
These thorough planners are PDF editable format and can be printed out as many times as needed. All planners are available for purchase individually on SchoolhouseTeachers.com, however if you are a member, you can enjoy them for free! The cost of membership is $3 for the first month, and $12.95 every month after that. Another option would be to join for a year at the rate of $139 and receive some extra goodies.
The “Big Mama” Schoolhouse Planner ($39) would be the planner for the teacher in your home. However, it is not only for homeschooling. It also contains forms for your home management binder to help run your household. The 2013-2014 Schoolhouse Planner, according to the SchoolhouseTeachers.com website (Though owning the planner myself, I can verify), contains the following:
There are 4 other planners available for students. They are as follows:
The Special Learner’s Schoolhouse Planner ($29) is a great option for those who have children with special needs. I plan on using this planner, along with the “Big Mama” planner, this year as I have a child with moderate-severe autism among other things. Features of this planner are:
The Primary Schoolhouse Planner ($9.95) is another planner I’m excited to be using this school year. My son desperately needs to learn organization and how to keep track of things. It includes:
The Intermediate Schoolhouse Planner ($19) is a great tool for your 5th – 8th graders to learn more responsibility and keep organized. It comes packed with:
Finally, The High School Schoolhouse Planner is a resource that can help prepare your teen for adulthood. Inside, you will find:
So what are you waiting for? Enter in the Rafflecopter below! Again, one winner will receive 1 Big Mama planner and their choice of 1 student planner. This giveaway will be ending on Saturday, July 13th, so don’t delay!
I am so excited to share this giveaway with you all! My friend, Miss Christine, has offered to give away a sheet of Jamberry Nail Shields to one of my readers. She knows that most of you are busy moms with little time to pamper yourselves, so she wanted to spoil you a little. Isn’t that just so sweet of her?
What are Jamberry Nail Shields? In simple words, they are basically little heat activated non-toxic stickers you put on your nails that can last for weeks. They stand up to almost anything. Even repeated dish washing! You cut them to size your nail just right, and can even put them on your toes. They come in so many various colors & styles, but one very cool option is that they now let you design your own if you’d like in the Nail Art Studio.
Not only are Jamberry Nail Shields more affordable than a trip to salon, but if you buy 3, you get 1 free! So it lasts longer, costs less, and you can do it at any time of day in the privacy of your own home. How cool is that?
Jamberry is also now expanding into Canada, and also offers profitable fundraisers… So if your ladies group at church is looking for something new or different to raise money for their ministry, this might just be the ticket.
One more thing that I would like to mention is another way to win: Raising Sticky Hands To Heaven is hosting a Raising (PRETTY) Sticky Hands To Heaven Jamberry party. I have decided to give away the host rewards that would normally be mine. That’s right! One guest that orders from that party will be chosen to receive all of the host rewards. So if you are impatient to order or would like to get more than just one sheet of nails if you win, go to Miss Christine’s Jamberry Nails Website, choose Raising (Pretty) Sticky Hands To Heaven as the party at check out, and then sit back and wait for your shields to arrive in a few days. It’s that easy!
I really wish I could give a set of these to each and every one of you. I’m a Jamberry addict, and I know you’ll just love them too. Be blessed!
