Tell all Tuesday - Summer Flashback

It's tell all Tuesday! I was excited to see the topic for this week Summer Flashback. So I'm linking up with Teach Talk Inspire and My Day in K to tell you about some of my favorite summer memories. I am also excited to read some other fun summer memories.

My first summer memory is one of my favorites. It was in between my sophomore and junior years at college. One of my good friends and me decided we wanted to redo a ballet performance we  had done 2 times before. It was one we created off of the books The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. We also decided to be the two main characters, and pull it off in two weeks. I was the White Witch and she was Aslan the lion.  Here we are, got to love all the make up.

My second summer memory is my very favorite. 3 years ago my husband proposed. He did a great job, he took me to my grandma's house which is on the lake. Then we took a walk on the beach and when we got back a chair with roses had appeared on the beach. At first, I thought that it looked really cute, and I had no idea it was for me. Once I realized it was for me, I was super excited!!!!

These are my summer memories and pictures. If you have a blog you can link up, if you don't leave a memory in the comments!

Dare to Dream

Today I'm joining Third in HollywoodPeppy Zesty TeacheristaSparkling in Second Grade, and Teach Create Motivate for the TPT sellers challenge.This week the TPT sellers challenge is dare to dream. So I have been thinking about what I really want to do and where I want my TPT journey to go. It really went well with the other linky I did this week, teaches bucket lists.  

My first dream is to have a family someday. I would like to have kids and be able to stay home with them. My husband and I want kids and would like to have a family. However he is currently doing his Masters so we are waiting until he's a little closer to be finished. It will be nice to have a job I can do from home.

My second dream is to homeschool our children. My parents decided to homeschool me when I was little and although I didn't appreciate it all my life, I look back now and realize it was an amazing blessing. I would like to be able to give my children that blessing as well. It is actually one of the reasons  I wanted to be a teacher. I can't wait to create things for my kids to do.

My third dream is to travel. I would love to travel to anywhere and everywhere. I have been to a few places mostly inside the United State. I would love to see Africa,  Europe, and anywhere warm and tropical. It would be great to be able to go on one trip before we have children.

My fourth dream is probably the most important one to me. I really want to bless and inspire other people with my product. That's why I make things for other teachers that I work with. Also if they need something that I created I let them use it, because I work in an at risk school and they already put a ton of money into the students it's the least I can do.

I hope you have enjoyed hearing about my dreams. I would love to hear about your dreams. If you have a blog you can link up with the other teachers or you can leave them in the comments below.

Tell all Tuesday - Teacher Bucket List

It's my second day blogging, and so I decided to link up with a weekly linky party. It sounded fun to me. So I'm linking up with Teach Talk Inspire and My Day in K for tell all Tuesday. This week we are talking about your teaching bucket list.

1. The first thing I want to do is start a blog. I have really wanted to start a blog for a while now, and I just took the leap yesterday. I still have a lot of work to do. I really want to try to design my own blog so I'm going slow. I may have to cave a some point and get it designed for me, but I'm having fun so that's important. Plus I am learning about a whole new world.

2. My second bucket list item is to grow my TPT store. I just started it in January. I'm very excited. I have about 20 items in my store and almost 100 followers. I really like making items for my students. I also have a few teachers that will request items too. I would love to have more followers, and make more items.

Makeover Madness TPT Seller Challenge

Hello Everyone - 

This is my very first blog post. I'm so excited to blog about the first week of TPT Seller's challenge. 

I decided to makeover my first ever product. It was an 120's chart that a teacher in my school asked me make. I loved how it turned out the first time, and decided I should start my TPT journey with it.
 It started looking like this. I used all free graphics and had only bought one set of fonts at this point. At the time I thought it looked really good. Then I made it over - now it looks like this....
If you want to check it out go to my store. I love it because you can print them in color or black and white. I like to print the color ones and laminate them and keep them with my students for a reference when then need them. I use the black and white one to have students color.
