Fall Back Into HomeSchool Giveaway...

**IF YOU VISITED WHEN WE FIRST POSTED...
PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE EDIT BELOW**




Near this time last year,
we had Fall Back Into HomeSchool Giveaway.
That time has come around, again,
as most are preparing to
begin/continue their homeschool journey.
In addition, we are anticipating the arrival of fall.
I just LOVE that time of year!
Cool... cozy... crunchy... autumn! Ah!

I think this giveaway is tending to have
more of an autumn theme than a homeschooling one,
but I thought it would be fun anyway. ;o)

You will see a pattern in these bundles,
as all of them involve tea.
I recently came across
Scripture Tea,
an online company that carries tea bags (& etc...)
that have King James Scripture tags on them!
I just loved this idea!


**EDITED (Thurs, August 28th) TO ADD**

After sampling a few of these tasty teas,
I discovered
that NOT all of the tags
contain King James Scripture.

Each tea bag is individually wrapped
and there is no way of knowing which Scripture is on the tag
until after you open the package.
On all of their boxes, only KJ is shown,
which led me to assume (my fault) that they were all King James.
This is NOT the case.

This may or may not affect some,
but I did feel it important to mention.

The giveaway continues, as planned.
However, I may decide to open
some of the tea bag packages
(individually wrapped in plastic)
to check the Scripture and replace them with King James tags.
I do apologize for the misunderstanding
and hasty assumption on my part.)
** END OF EDIT **

I ordered a box or two and they, also,
added a few freebies to contribute to our giveaway!

We're giving away three bundles!




Bundle #1: The HomeSchool Bundle


A spiral bound note sketch book
A padded cover daily planner
A Proverbs 31:30 bookmark

Bren said...

I too would like any of the bundles. Probably #2 would be my favorite.
I will link back here tomorrow from www.piecesfromme.blogspot.com

Melody said...

They're all neat bundles! Thank you for offering them. My favorite would probably be the all tea one. I do like all three bundles but I already have the Edith Schaeffer book. :O)

I linked to you on my blog too. It's at http://blog.yorkteachingstudio.com/2008/08/27/shes-having-a-giveaway/

I've never seen Scripture Tea! That's a GREAT idea :) (feel free to laugh out loud)

I've shared your wonderful giveaway here.

I have often imagined if we were still stationed where you are at (I recognize a lot of the backdrops of your photos) if we would have met and become friends. Our oldest girls aren't that far in age, and I have an almost 9 yr old son. not to mention the other little ones, a son 6, a son 4, and a daughter almost two, with another bundle due in March...

anyhow, I will post it on my blog although few read it yet;o)

any one would be great. perhaps someday we will get to meet (although I think our ending days will keep us out here)

I found you a ways back through Ashleigh's blog at Heart and Home.

Thank you!

I like all of the bundles, too. (Do we have to pick just one?) If so, in order of preference... I like them how you have them listed: homeschool bundle first, homemaking bundle second, and all tea bundle third.

Thanks for having this awesome giveaway!

Jenn said...

What a sweet giveaway and just in time to remind us that in the midst of the back-to-homeschool rush to take a little time for ourselves as well. I think all the bundles are great, but I think I would choose the homemaking bundle the best followed by the homeschool and tea bundles as a close second. I blogged about the giveaway here:

What a nice blog. I do not have one. I homeschool two teens and help my dh in his construction business... so I really look forward to my tea time in the evening. Sometimes I even get some "tea time" in at mid-day. Lord bless your efforts and your give away. I am sure it will be a big blessing to the ladies.

P.S. I think all 3 of the bundles are lovely.

This is such a nice give away and on a rainy day when homeschooling didn't go so well, a cup of tea with an encouraging word would go a long way today.
