An award and trying to organize

Another award! Pretty soon I'm going to have to build a shelf for all of my awards! Mission Control was so kind to have awarded me this! She is a fellow Ohio teacher!
This award is named for the German word "Liebster," which translates to "beloved" or "favorite," and it is given to "new, up and coming bloggers." 
The rules:
1. Link back to the person who gave it to you.
2. Post the award to your blog.
3. Give the award to at least 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers.
4. Leave a comment on the 5 blogs to let them know that they have been offered this award
The 5 bloggers I'm giving this award to are:
1. Ramblings of a Deaf Ed Teacher she has so many great ideas for any type of classroom, I especially liked her duck taped clipboards and file folders!

2. Teacher on the Loose she has made some great looking interactive math boards!

3. Baking...Crafting...& Teaching...Oh My! Taylor is very entertaining to read and also has great ideas and delicious sounding baked goods! I'm thinking she should bring cookies and cupcakes to the award ceremony!!

4. I Teach 1:1 Kristin is a teacher that utilizes technology in her classroom with MacBooks and iPads! She is moving from 1st grade to 4th grade this year!

5. Teaching Third has a great give away for having 50 followers (you have to follow and claim the prize today, 7/24/12). Lots of great ideas for Daily 5 and those Common Core Standards.

I'm really trying to organize my craft space, right now it's part of a small cupboard and a 3 drawer cart. I bought a new cart last night hoping that the scrapbook paper would fit along with all of my Cricut cartridges, paper cutter, glue sticks, ribbon, etc. Well, it started out good, but the wheels just broke off when I tried to move it across the room, guess I have too much paper, even after I purged a lot of it! So I'm off to plan B, I have one scrapbook paper case I'm thinking of getting 2 more and labeling the cases to let me know what is in each case.  I have plans for the smaller white drawer cart, Iwant to put my classroom borders in the drawers. I will label the drawers with seasonal, subject areas, and other! I have a lot of borders! But first I have to get more motivation!

Thanks so much for the award and those kind words!! I wanted to give you a heads up that your link to your blog in the comment was not working. It is linked to teachingspecialkids.... instead of teachingspeckids.... I just thought I'd let you know because I would definitely want to know if mine wasn't set right! Hope that helps!
