Day of Silence......

Cyber Monday Plus Tuesday on TPT!

Yikes, I know - I have been a very naughty blogger!  It's been sooo long since I posted!  It's either a feast or a famine with me!  I seem to have been so busy lately and I know it's only going to get worse the closer we get to Christmas - it must be the same for everyone else?!  Does anybody actually get to sit down once the kiddos arrive in class?  I keep thinking I'm on top of things, then I add more to the list - I'm thinking bulletin boards, Christmas crafts, Christmas concert and squeeze in some curriculum too - lol! ......I so love this time of year, but boy, is it hectic!
Are you all geared up for the big sale?  My shopping cart's been filling up these last couple of weeks - just have to take advantage of the great discounts!
I'm linking up with Michelle at The 3am Teacher to share loads of links to some super stores for you to check out!


Photobucket
You might want to have a look my most recent additions - I've been going a bit mad with Clip Art - having lots of fun!




I've also just added my newest pack - Sight Word Practice.  When checking out the preview, don't forget you can zoom in for a closer look!






Don't forget my freebie digital papers too!



I hope all my American friends have had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are enjoying a well-deserved break! You'll need your strength to fill your shopping cart with lots of wonderful TpT bargains!

Thanks to everyone for all your continued support as I blog and build up my TpT store - it's appreciated more than you'll ever know! 

Have fun at the sale!

Teachers for Teresa.....

Cynthia over a Second Grade Pad has written the loveliest post about her dear friend Teresa who is extremely unwell at the moment.  
I 'met' Teresa through her her cute piggy blog and the TpT forums and what a wonderfully warm, sincere and kind person she is!  We had missed her at the forums and now know, through Cynthia, what happened.  
The TpT community is one of the kindest communities I have ever come across and everybody wanted to send their thoughts and prayers to Teresa, but they also wanted to do more to help if they could - hence 'Teachers for Teresa'.
Please read about what TpT ers are doing to help - hop over to Cynthia's blog Second Grade Pad to find out more.....
Teresa's Blog: 2nd Grade Pig Pen

Sending huge hugs, thoughts and prayers to Teresa and her family and to Cynthia too.

November Currently.....

Linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her November Currently.

I am currently fascinated by all things american!  I think this has happened because I am already so excited about my trip to New York in 2014 for my 'scarily big fat round end of a decade' birthday -  yikes!  I have been researching all kinds of (strange!) things in preparation.  Add to that teacher bloggers, TpT, Hurricane Sandy and Election excitement - I just want to know more!  I found a live news website on the internet and find myself searching it out when I have time to watch and listen.  I love the variation in accents and the fact that the country is so diverse compared to little old Ireland!

I have been moaning constantly (to anyone who will listen!), that my clothes don't fit any more because of some weight issues!  Last year's winter coat was feeling a tad snug.......My darling husband surprised me with a winter coat that not only fits, but is beautiful!  This is note worthy because this is highly unusual and I have not yet recovered from the shock - lol!  He just reminded me how lucky I am that he is part of my life!

Keeping silent about Christmas!!

Cannonball has to be one of the most beautiful songs ever written, although I much prefer cover versions to Damien's voice - sorry!  I rediscovered it recently on an ipod shuffle and it's just sticking in my head at the moment!

Other news - my 200 hundred giveaway will be finished in a couple of days, so remember to enter for a choice of 55 amazing  products!

I have been watching hours of tutorials on Adobe Photoshop Elements!  I now know how to make repeating patterns and have gone a bit mad creating digital background papers - has been a lot of fun though!
A few sets are free, but my latest is a set of snowflake patterns that I'm very proud of!  I hope you like them!

Huge 200 Follower Giveaway!

Wow! I can hardly believe that this giveaway had so many donations - I can't tell you how many hours and clicking links it has taken to set up!!



Thank you all so so much for kindly donating your precious products - I know just how much hard work goes into making them!

I hadn't really planned on doing a giveaway for 200 followers, but I found myself in need of a pick-me-up!  Life has been so crazy these last couple of months and despite all of life's ups and downs, a celebration is always a positive thing to do.  Thanks to everyone for following and supporting me - I'm beginning to feel like I've been around for a while - lol!  I've made so many dear friends and your kindness spurs me on!

To the giveaway - there are 55 products to be won.  I thought it best to split the contributions to have some choice or you'd be clicking forever!  I have tried my best to form categories, although I know there are some overlaps, so if you are still unsure which Rafflecopter to enter, just click on the pics to check out the items.

Some links did not work friends!  I managed to track most down, but couldn't work out some facebook pages - sorry!
