DJ Inkers has made me so happy!

DJ Inkers is now selling COMMERCIAL licenses! I love DJ Inkers graphics and fonts so much and I am so glad that I will be able to share them on Teachers Pay Teachers! Who else is JAZZED by this news?!

So of COURSE I bought some brand new DJ Inkers items (I'm obsessed...clip art anonymous, anyone?) so that I can continue creating! Here are my newest DJ Inkers graphics!

Anyone else going to purchase a commercial license from DJ Inkers?

Some Random Thoughts...and advertising a giveaway!

Blogging World

I'm new to the blogging world, so I've been reading and researching what other AMAZING teachers blog about. I'm so impressed by the originality and the creativity of you all. I feel intimidated but also inspired! Thank you for sharing your TALENT!

Something I'm proud of...
I'm not one to toot my own horn very often. Remember the intimidation I mentioned earlier? :) Well, I'm always worried that my products don't measure up to the wonderful things that I see on a daily basis! 

I'm just too proud of this one to NOT share it. Please let me know what your opinion is!

I've made a card game based off of "Old Maid". I call it Old Meowd!  Obviously, my inspiration is my sweet cat named, "Kitty". Seriously, how cute is he?


I love cats and naturally want to create games using cat clip art! I was sitting around one night thinking of new ways to review and learn sight words in the classroom. I like using games whenever I can because students can learn without realizing it! Then it hit me!

Why not make an "Old Maid" card game using all the cat clip art I accumulated?! Thus, "Old Meowd" was "born"!

Visit my Teachers Pay Teachers store and download the preview! I hate to "push" my own creations but I'm too excited to NOT share with anyone else!

Click here for the product!

P.S.- I've made several versions of this card game. The newest one uses the Treasure's Reading Series Kindergarten Sight Words. Would anyone be interested if I made a Treasure's Reading Series First Grade Sight Words? 

The first 3 people to reply will receive the Kindergarten version for FREE!

Giveaway (Not mine but another GREAT blogger's)
I visited some amazing blogs earlier today and found out about a great giveaway! Ms. Simoneaux of First Grade Fresh has partnered with Lakeshore for a fabulous giveaway! Head on over to her page and check out what you have a chance to win! 

Good luck!


Wednesday, August 1, 2012's the little things! :)

This has been such a wonderful summer! I have three weeks until I have to get back into the swing of things and got a GREAT surprise in the mail yesterday! In May, I ordered some items from and pre-ordered something. As time went on, I completely forgot about it and when it arrived yesterday, I was beyond EXCITED! 

Last year's first graders LOVED this series. Even though I can find most of these episodes on YouTube, I love the fact that now have ALL of them. These videos are such great way to supplement my school district's science curriculum. I am excited to use these wonderful videos!

What are your favorite ways to supplement your curriculum?
