Back To School Giveaway

When I was in third grade and I looked like this, I sat in Ms. Bebo's class at Mayflower Elementary and looked forward to back to school night. 
You see, being the oldest of four, back to school night was my special night to shine.
I would organize my desk and showcase my Hello Kitty pencils properly.
My art work would be showcased in it's special spot in the classroom and Ms. Bebo had us make hanger collages.

Dear Ms. Bebo asked us to go home and find an old hanger and some objects that we loved or items that we felt defined us and bring them in to class.
In class we attached those dear items (photo's of family, Care Bear figurines, a leaf, Strawberry Shortcake) to our little hanger and we hung them from the ceiling of our classroom. 
I was so proud of my hanger collage. 

So, dear friends, I am asking you to take fifteen minutes out of your day and gather up your loved, self defining objects and make your own hanger collage. 
This is all about you.
What do you love?
Who are you? 
Who do you want to be? 
Run with it sister-friends.

Leave me a comment letting me know you are a follower and that you are ready for some self discovery time. 
Then make your hanger collage and email me a photo of it.

Bono Baby will pick a winner and your LOVE hangers will be featured here on Fritzi Marie.

The winner will win a care package full of goodies. 
Goodies you don't want to miss out on, I promise.
They, along with your submissions will be featured here in the days to come.

Join us dear friends.
Let's celebrate our friendship and get to know one another better.

love and hugs,
Fritzi Marie

 Bono Baby will pick the winner on Thursday, September 23rd (the first day of Autumn).

Invite your friends, it's a self discovery/love party.

Oooh! I only have a couple days to get my act together and work this out... and find a hanger! Isn't it funny that we don't really have those here... because maybe two percent of house even have closets. Oh, yes, it does make for a grand mess and a bunch of stuff hidden under the bed :) Luckily, we recently moved into a house with closets though...

I wish I had had a better hanger for my collage! This was a lot of fun doing, but definitely a little hard since I'm away at school!
