Introducing Colvie Creations {plus a Giveaway!}

Today's post is 100% not school related.

I guess that is my way of celebrating Day 1 of Thanksgiving vacation... and if you aren't on vacation...sorry, but why not pretend you are.... and stick with me for a fun giveaway....

I'm teaming up with a super talented friend, Renee Koschnick, who makes the most amazing wooden decorations for your home...or your classroom!
She used to be a kindergarten teacher.... but now stays home with her little ones.

Renee is beyond talented and creates adorable cuteness for her shop, Colvie Creations!  The name Colvie is the darling combination of her two little ones.... Colton and Sylvie.

You can find her on Etsy, Facebook and Instagram and RIGHT HERE on Crayons and Whimsy. And yes, you can WIN one of her holiday creations!

This lady has products for all 365 days of the year... but today I am focusing on some of her holiday ones. But first, let me share a few others....
And how great would this be as a gift? {just click the image for more information}
Renee explained to me that creating all of this is her new outlet and helps takes the place of the creative fun she used to have in kindergarten. But let me tell you that if I were to stop teaching kindergarten I would not be capable of creating this goodness...

and probably some type of injury would occur... we are talking wood...and saws and well, injury!

Please take a look at those antlers! I LOVE LOVE this trio!

 It may be nearly 80 degrees today, but I would still love a snowman sign!

 I personally own this countdown sign... yes, that's a chalk board for you to be doing that counting.
So it's giveaway time.  Renee and I are excited to send this Jingle All the Way sign to one lucky winner. And yes, that's a real jingle bell on there. Although I can't promise it is straight from Santa's sleigh Polar Express style.
Want this? Of course you do.... just enter below.....

And if you want one of these other holiday creations you may not find them in her store- but just send her an email at and let her know you saw them here and she will be happy to help you out!

  1. Speaking of gifts, but the kid to kid kind now. I saw this lesson on and thought it would be wonderful as a tween Thanksgiving and Christmas activity. It was submitted by a K teacher, but I think it would be great, including the moral, at any grade. Go to the lower, right corner of the site page to see the Great Thank You gifts idea.
