Celebrate 'Spring Forward' with a Spring-Cleaning Sale!

Hi everyone!  Well, it's our 'spring forward' this weekend - those lighter nights just can't come soon enough!!  I LOVE this time of year!  So, what's been happening?  

A quick round up from me - I broke 2 toes a couple of weeks ago - ^&*(&*^%$$$%^&**(!!!!!!  is all I can say - thankfully they are on the mend - some very awkward driving for a while though!
My hubs and I will be doing this tomorrow!!  So excited!!!

I hope my stomach keeps it together - lol!  We will be flying to the Giant's Causeway and then across to Donegal - cameras batteries are charged, tummy is doing somersaults already!  I will post pics shortly - if they survive my shaky hand!  I have never been in a helicopter, so fingers crossed, all goes smoothly!

I love learning new things and when I am supposed to be working, I'm playing with technology!  I have so many half-finished projects for TpT, but I can only work when I'm in the 'zone', which sadly hasn't been for a while.  However, I have been busy with other little 'projects' that catch my interest and keep me away from important stuff!

I have opened a little 'store' on my blog.  I don't really expect to sell much, but I had fun setting it up!  It basically showcases my digital papers and is by no means fully loaded.  It's just a start and another little hobby for me.  The good thing about this outlet is that I can offer discount coupons whenever I like and it's a great way to thank all those customers who support me.  (These are mostly announced on FB, so it's always a good idea to check).

Last announcement for this evening: SPRING CLEANING SALE ON TPT!

My store is currently on sale!  I have joined a ton of fellow bloggers for a fun linky and sale to see out March.  So clear out those wishlists and pop those resources into your carts.  There's a lot of shops to browse this weekend!  Hop around the linky at the bottom of this post to visit some of your favorite sellers and grab a bargain!  

Wishing everyone a fun-filled weekend!

Last Minute Planning For St. Patrick's Day! Freebie Linky!

Well, I am oh so late with this post - not what I had planned at all!  I'm afraid two broken toes came between me and my beloved computer!  I won't even tell you how I did it, it's too stupid - lol!  Needless to say, sitting at my desk has not been the most comfortable of positions, but my purple sausages are beginning to throb a little less, so I thought maybe I could squeeze in this post before it's too late!  On the plus side, it's St. Patrick's Day soon and my school is closed for the day - yay!
Which brings me on to the point of this post!  Most teachers will have planned and organized for next week.  I'm sure many of you will be using St. Patrick's Day themed resources on Monday.  If some of you are anything like me, planning sometimes happens at the last minute or plans get changed at short notice because something else catches your eye!  So although this post is last minute, you may still pick up something quick that you know your students would love!  If you scroll down to the bottom of this post, you will find a linky for free products you can use in your classroom on Monday. 
I posted this last year, but I couldn't resist again - a little light-heartedness does the soul good!!  What's your Leprechaun name?  I'm Stumpy McTurnips!

Wishing you all a fun-filled St. Patricks Day!


Birthday Giveaway!

Ok - I'll admit it - yesterday was a big deal for me!  Yes, it was my birthday, it was a 'special' birthday - one of those birthdays with a big fat zero at the end!  I can be a bit prone to over-analyzing things and I've been dreading this particular birthday for a while.  I don't really know why - did I think that I would magically turn old overnight?  Who knows?!  But it had been playing on my mind for a while.

There's no putting off time and the day finally arrived.  Far from the awful day I thought it would be, it turned out to be one of the best days ever!  Not because it was full of expensive gifts (that's not really my thing), but because it was a day filled with love.  From touching comments, sweet memories from old school friends, wonderful verses and special surprises from my students, work colleagues, friends and family.  I felt so blessed, so valued and so loved.  It's a day I won't forget for a long time to come.  What a wonderful start to the next decade!  

Although it's a bit late, I want to pass on that 'warm glow' with a little fun giveaway!

Game:  truth, truth, truth, truth and a big fat whopper!!  Which one is not the truth?  Enter your best guess in the rafflecopter to win a $20 TpT Gift Certificate or $20 of clip art from {my store}.

1.  My beautiful fur baby is called Blue

2.  I live on a peninsula

3.  I speak Spanish  fluently

4.  I play the trumpet

5.  I am a white water kayak coach

So, which one is a big fat untruth!!  Have fun!
