I'm on a roll...

A new blog, 4 posts AND two new products in only one week?! I have no life. I'm having way too much fun with this (and my hubby is out of town)!! I had originally wanted to post today about my year in review. Then I decided to check my email "real quick." I should have known better... Checking email led to reading feedback, blog hopping, online shopping (hubby was obviously out of town) and lots of new, a-dor-a-bul graphics. My mind was racing with all the things I now feel empowered to do and I just had to create!! So here are the fruits of my labor...

Polka Dot and Owl Writing Process

I mean come on! How do you see these little guys and not want to hang them all over your classroom walls? So click on over to TpT and pick them up! It's my gift to you!! Don't forget to take a second and let me know what you think. Pretty please!!

Hubs is back in town tonight, but leaving again soon. When that happens, I'm willing to bet I'll be back in the creating and posting mood. So, be on the lookout!

Best wishes,

Hot off the press...

I'm SUPER excited to announce that my very first set of math and literacy centers is complete! Please check it out and be sure to tell me what you think. It includes 6 centers, descriptions, directions and response sheets to be used in October (I know, I know... it's only June! But what can I say? I'm a plan WAY ahead kind of girl). So head on over to TpT and pick it up for FREEEE!! I hope you like it! Oh, and come back later in the week to see what else is new. I can feel my creative juices flowing again already!

Spooky October Centers

Oh, and please pass it along to everyone you know (makes a great gift, HA!)!

Coming soon...

Hiya blogging buddies! It's well after 1 in the morning and I'm still wide awake and working hard! I have been busy creating my very first set of centers for you all (and me, too). It's not quite finished, but close. I'm not exactly sure why I decided to work on October centers before September, but I did. Anyways, this is just a little glimpse of what's to come... 3 math and 3 literacy activities. And did I mention it's going to be FREE!!! So tell all your friends (especially the teacher ones) to come on by. Don't forget to leave a comment if you like what you see!

**And a HUGE thank you to DeAnne at First Grade and Fabulous for all of the guidance (and for being my fabulous first follower)!!**

Nighty night

In the beginning...

Okay... take 3! Believe it or not, this is my third attempt at starting a blog. Like all of you, life can be a bit overwhelming exciting at times and I find my hobbies often take a backseat to my numerous obligations. Well no more! I have decided to spend the summer doing something I truly enjoy... creating a blog dedicated to helping others, just as so many blogs have helped me in the past. And to kick it all off, I'm starting with good news! A super cute blog I just stumbled on is hosting a terrific giveaway! Please check out Rebecca (love her name) at And don't forget to check back here soon. I promise you won't be disappointed!!!

Much love,

PS Since this is just the beginning, I still have TONS to learn. If you can offer any advice or send me somewhere that has helped you create your blog and freebies, PRETTY PLEASE share with me! Thanks!! :)
