Happy Birthday Sale

It's my birthday and the beginning of school is rapidly approaching so I am having a quickie sale in my TN store. I have several classroom themed classroom sets available to help decorate your classroom for the beginning of the school year. My Kindergarten Homework Packet for September will be available on August 1st.
Teacher's Notebook

I hope to get back into my classroom later next week to take pictures: before and after. I am still working on the curtains, but I may have waited too long to get one of the items I needed to make them, grrr. I'm heading out this weekend to check those summer clearance aisles.
I have also been working on my own version of a Pinterest inspired project for the first day of school. I hope to get it finished this weekend and then I will show you pictures.
My bloggy goal is to take lots of pictures. My favorite blogs are those with lots of pictures but I have so many problems with my camera not keeping a charge. I wish I could replace it but for now I will take pics on my phone and share those.
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy those last few days of summer vacation!!

I'm Back...Freebies and New Set

Hello Everyone!! I'm back!! Have you ever started so many projects at the same time you can't get any of them done? Well that's exactly how I feel. I started teaching ESY last week, and let me tell you, my late nights of staying up making items is cut short....those little munchkins wear me out!! I have finished a super cute beach/ocean themed set. I love the colors and sunny elements.
It is 80 pages of sunny fun...so cute for a beach or ocean themed classroom! Here is a link to the new set. Ocean Classroom Set I have a few freebies for you... First up are sandcastle desk nameplates from the new ocean set.
Sandcastle Desk Nameplate
In case you missed this one....these are desk nameplates from the monster themed set.Monster Freebie
I was asked to create numbers that match the Let's Get Hoppin' classroom set. These are frog numbers 1-32 that match the set. These stand alone as sequencing cards in a pocket chart or as a fun concentration game for matching and naming numerals.Frog Numbers 1-32Well that is all I have for today but I am currently working on 3 more sets: Owls, Bugs, and a Carolina Blue Tarheels. If you follow my other blog Joy of Kindergarten I am also working on my monthly Kindergarten Homework Packets. The September Homework Packet will be loaded on August 1st!!
I hope you are all having a great summer!! Enjoy your freebies!!

New Set...Freebie....Sale....and a Shout Out

Yahoo Magoo!! I finally got that blue and red polka dot set finished. I have absolutely no clue why I was having so much trouble with it. It turned out being 120 pages long, gadzooks that is a lot! I added something new to this set, a visual index. I thought this would make it a lot easier if there were only certain pages you needed to print.
It will be on sale in my store for a few days. Classroom Design Collections: Blue and Red Polka Dots
I added a freebie from the set onto TpT. It is the blue polka dot days of the week. You can grab a copy of them here: Free Days of the Week Signs

I will give away one copy of this new set to one random teacher. I would be very thankful if you would consider leaving my positive feedback on TpT if you like my products. Just leave me a comment below and you will be entered to win this set.
Thanks Perrine for the 'shout out' about my All About Yellow Set, I appreciate it!! You can read about it here Modern Kindergarten
. I will be back with photos of an inexpensive idea for making cute window coverings for your classroom. Have a wonderful week!

Happy 4th of July and Winner Winner!!

Well today was so very hot as I am sure it was for many of you. Not living near the ocean here in Ohio this is the closest we have to a beach....
So we go here. It is a lake about 25 minutes away at one of the State Parks. It's clean and fun and the best price: free.
Did I say the blue dot set would be done today...well gadzooks it isn't. I've been making all of my own backgrounds recently. I am so glad I figured it out so I don't have to worry about licenses and all but the downside is I am still on the slow side. I will have it done soon...maybe tonight.

I used the handy dandy number generator and the "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner" is number 11.

Congrats to Janine over at Faithful In First, you were number 11.
Hope you all had a fabulous July 4th!! Now I am going to go work on those blue dots, lol.
