Have you heard of Skin It? & a Giveaway & Blog Roll

My daughter just introduced me to something new.  It's called Skin It.  I just placed an order and wanted to share the information with you.   Here's how their site describes skinit:



Skinit device skins are the easy way to protect your electronics and personalize them at the same time by using a thin protective "skin" applied directly to the surface of your device.

Each skin is made from a flexible, super-strong, vinyl material from Premium Quality that has been specially crafted to perfectly fit every corner, cutout and curve of your device - providing the ultimate in custom lightweight protection from everyday bumps, scuffs and scratches.

And best of all, when you're ready to change up your style it's easy, simply pull off your old skin and replace with a new one, no mess, no residue.

This is the design I ordered.
Click on "my" computer above to visit their site.

They have free shipping for orders over $35.  My cover was $30 and the iPhone cover I ordered was only $15.  You can personalize your cover, too.  My daughter's iPad cover is going to have a picture of her guinea pig on it.  Too cute!  It cost $35.

There is a new member of our TPT family who is doing something unique.  If you become a follower of his store he will donate money to an education fund that was set up after an earthquake damaged his school.  Here's what Chad wrote:

A Giveaway...With A Twist
In lieu of a gift certificate giveaway, I wanted to try something a little different.

As some of you have read on my introductory forum post, I teach in a county in rural Virginia that was deeply affected by the east coast 5.8 magnitude earthquake of August 23, 2011.  The epicenter was about 2 miles from my high school where I teach math.  In those 30 seconds, we lost 2 out of our 5 schools including my school and one of our 4 elementary schools.  I am currently teaching in one of about 25 trailers placed on the parking lot of our old school.  Needless to say, it has been quite a year, but the community has rallied behind the schools and we are getting used to our "new normal."

This past Sunday, Alan Jackson played a benefit concert for our school system.  $152,000 was raised.  I have a link to a video and an article regarding the concert on my blog (link below) along with some pictures.  Extending the charitable feelings and instead of offering a gift certificate, I would like to offer you a very easy way to help.

I am going to donate $1 to the education foundation set up for earthquake relief for every 5 people to follow my store from now until June 1.  I want to set a lofty goal of 50 followers, but who knows...

I want to thank you in advance.
