    I received a letter that Mailbox has accepted 2 of my ideas for publication in their magazine. I was quite surprised because I had completely forgot about it!

    Isn't it a great feeling? They have taken 5 of my ideas so far. I've used the $20 stipend each time to buy teacher books from their store. Not a bad deal. Good for you, Grammy!

    Congratulations! I'll have to get that subscription that I've been planning so I can see your ideas. :) Do you know what issue they'll be in?

    Congrats, Grammy. I've only submitted one entry and they accepted it. I had to renew my subcription to see it! :)

    They send you a free copy of the issue in which your idea appears a little in advance in the distribution date.

    They said I will receive a complimentary issue when they publish it and I would receive it before the issue came out. I already get a subscription through work(all paid for by my employer.) Anyway, my ideas are spring ones, so maybe this spring, but they said sometimes they aren't published for up to two years. I have a feeling it will be published this spring. One is an idea for a mosaic egg/bunny and the other is a spring planting idea. The funny thing is, when I got the notice that they accepted it, I had to really think before remembering what I even submitted!!! I did it online one night when I was half asleep and figured what the heck! Made me laugh!

    Congratulations GrammyTeacher! Although I have been teaching for almost 18 years, I always look forward to reading your advise and applying your ideals. You are a great teacher. I can't think of anyone who deserves the honor more. I have had a few published also, makes everything worth while doesn't it?

    It is fun to do things like that once in a while and get your idea accepted. What makes it so funny to me is that I really didn't put much thought into it! I guess that's where 16 years of being creative with kids comes in handy!!! Anyway, it's nice that we can all be so talented!!!!!!!!!!!!Congrats to the rest of you as well!
