HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
2015 was one of the most interesting years I have had! Being diagnosed and beginning treatment for Lyme disease and other tick borne infections has been a challenge on my family. But, for every obstacle we have faced, we have seen blessings poured out! I spent the first month of my treatment being very angry and depressed from the physical pain and because it took doctors 5 years to diagnosis me. All I could think was if someone had caught it sooner, I wouldn’t be in so much pain. About a month and a half into treatment, I made the decision to change my attitude and to try to find at least one positive thing each day. It has been amazing to see the world through new eyes as I search for positive and beautiful things each day. One of those blessings has been able to work on my Teachers Pay Teachers store full time. I would never have been able to grow my business as much as I have if not for being sick. Not only have I been blessed with the time to develop it but I have also been blessed by a supportive customer base and encouragement from other sellers. People who have supported my store or left positive messages on the forums and/or my product pages have been such an encouragement to me when I really needed it. To say thank you for all the support I received in 2015, I am kicking 2016 off with lots of freebies, sales, and contests. Below is a list of all the things happening at Vestal’s 21st Century Classroom this month:
1. New Year’s Flash Sale!– All products in my shop are 20% off through the end of today (1/1)!!! Make sure to stock up on materials for 2016 while they are at a reduced price!
2. Thank you for helping me to reach my goal of 100 followers!! To say thank you for your support I will continue Freebie Fridays throughout the month of January! Make sure to visit my store every Friday in January for a new, high quality freebie. There are 5 Friday’s in January this year so 5 new FREE products will be loaded by January 31!

3. I would like to start 2016 off by getting more feedback from my customers. For each piece of feedback I receive on products purchased from my store, that person will be entered into a drawing for 1 free product from my store. Names will be entered into the drawing for feedback left on both FREE AND PAID products. Multiple entries will be allowed for people leaving feedback on multiple products. The drawing will be held on February 1. The winner will be notified via message on TpT and announced in my February Note to Store Followers.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!! Good luck to all teachers as you prepare to head back to school in a few days!
