Day 10 - Ten Happy Days


It is Day 10 of my 10,000 follower celebration. It has been loads of fun, but unfortunately the end did not pan out as I expected. I had hoped to present Day 10 to you 4 days ago. A rather angry cyclonic storm got in between me and the computer and I am now into my fifth day of no electricity. 

Thankfully my husband's workplace had power and internet restored yesterday and I was able to get here to post this for you. I have to say, I could get VERY used to working in a lovely quiet office rather than the kitchen bench at home! It is so different to be working in a quiet uninterrupted workspace. 

These Scrappy Teddies were in fact ready for you four days ago, and in my store, but you may not have noticed as I did not get a chance to put my post up before the power went out.

I have updated this set as part of my celebration and the set now includes lots of colourful teddies as well as the original brown ones. 


I have also made a new set of free clipart - this set of Scrappy Stars is a versatile set that will help brighten your classroom and resources. 

Find both sets in my TpT store, by clicking on the image thumbnails. 



Thank you so much - from the very bottom of my heart - for helping me to celebrate 10,000 followers. I don't know where to begin in explaining how much this online teacher-blogosphere has meant to me over the last few years. Teaching can be, in some ways, a very lonely job and often we are in a position to be criticised from many directions. 

I have found the online community to be a warm, friendly and uplifting community. It has been a joy to have a place that has balanced out my other experiences. Quite a few years ago, a colleague said to me 'you may need to look further than your own school' - how true those words were. 

I am thankful for every challenge I have faced - each of them helped bring me here - to finding my place. 

Thank you for being a part of my place here and letting me be a part of yours.

Day 8 - Ten Happy Days


Yay for Day 8! 

I am going to miss this daily fun. Let's just hope 15,000 comes around pretty quick so we can do it all over again!

Today I made a free font for you. It is called 'Pond Free Time' - yes, because we would all like some of that, wouldn't we?!

I put links to my free fonts on the sidebar of my blog here - you can click on those links and download the fonts directly. Alternatively, if you would prefer to download from TpT - just click on the image below to find it!


I also revised my scrappy set of Earth Day clipart. I liked the original set very much, but figured that an additional alternative set would give you a bigger variety of choices for your covers and resources. And we all know that variety is good! So just click on the image below to find the new set. 


Congratulations to the following 10 people that won a free set of clipart from my store. I have emailed you already - but if you do not see the email, please contact me. 


I blogged over at my teaching resources blog with a Bright Idea for April. If you are looking for fun and easy teaching ideas that do not cost a lot - head over to peruse the ideas!



Thank you so much, once again, for all your support! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Day 7 - Ten Happy Days


DAY 7! Where has the week gone?

This celebration has made me so happy, and I do hope that is has brought a little happiness to your week too!

Today, I have for you a flash freebie and a revised freebie. 

This scrappy little set of astronauts will be free for the next day or so. 


I have revised my set of 7 'fuzzy frames' and turned it into a more versatile set of 16! You will find a fresh new colour palette, a slightly wider space in the center and a full set of 'unfilled' frames. The unfilled frames will allow you to layer these on digi papers.


Thank you so much once again, for all your support and kind feedback - I appreciate it so much!


If you are new to reading blogs, be sure to find a stack of wonderful teaching blogs on my Clipart Addicts page. Keep this page bookmarked to find some new and interesting ideas and teaching resources!



Have a great day friends!
