My Absence

I haven't been around much and won't be for awhile- I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and dealing with a few complications...Our second baby girl is due Nov 16! We are so excited and so I am resting, taking it easy and spending time with our first as much as I can.

This is also the reason why I am not able to do to much on TpT or answer as many questions- it's hard for me to get on the computer daily....please be patient with me -I'll be back soon!

New packet up on TpT!

I posted a new Scoot! game to my TpT store-with state testing around the corner I am dreading "test prep"- I am desperately looking for ways to make reviewing standards and content a bit more 'fun'.....My kids love to play Scoot- and they don't even realize we are reviewing at the same time :) 

Hope it is useful!


Spring Break! {new unit on TpT & a Freebie!}

I am finally on Spring Break- can't wait to spend my week relaxing with my little girl! There is a ton of housework to be caught up on and of course I'd ultimately like to get up more units on TpT. 

I can't believe how addicted I am to creating more units and finding clip art and borders. 

Anyways- here is my main freebie on TpT:  Word Study Notebook {click picture to DL from TpT}

Graphics: DJ Inkers 

I also just put a new unit...a Fairy Tale writing themed center pack. {click pic to purchase on TpT}

Graphics: KPM Doodles, Print Candee Designs 
(Terms of Use and Graphics links included in packet)

Now- Goals for the week: 1. upgrade seller's membership on TpT to premium. 2. get a new blog design {luck for me hubby is a graphic & web designer} 3. Spend some quality time with my family.....not so much time on the computer. 

Have a great week!!!

New Store: TpT

After months and months, literally I'm talking over a year, I have decided to open my own TpT store. I am so excited- A LOT of my products will be free because I use a lot of DJ Inkers but I have also started using Scrappin Doodles and will be selling a few units.

I'm still so new and trying to figure everything out but would love to have followers!
