Five for Friday Time - with Doodle Bugs Teaching


I was so disappointed that I missed out on last Friday's linky, but I have been super busy! I am excited to be here this week though! Here we go...

1. As a blogging newbie I am kinda learning the ropes from all the other amazing bloggers I follow. One thing I learned is that the end Google Reader is swiftly approaching. I signed up with bloglovin' so my many (hopefully) followers can stay up to date with what I post. If you would like to follow me, go to my sidebar and follow me on bloglovin'!

2. I have and always will be a list person. I make lists of ...well a lot of different things. I love the feeling of "checking things off" the list. When I started my blog and TpT store I made a list of goals to be reached before school starts back up in August. Here it is:

Here is where I am at:
  • 47 followers at TpT!
  • 21 followers on Pinterest!
  • 25 products sold on TpT! (Yay - halfway there!)
  • 13 followers on bloglovin' 20 followers on Google
  • No Linky Party yet but I am working on that, I am however being featured on This Little Piggy Reads Clipart and Coffee Talk! (details below)
  • With the exception of my vacation week, I have been posting regularly!
  • I currently have 16 items in my TpT store and many clip art and digital paper items.
I'm doing pretty good I'd say! :) I love reading all the teacher blogs out there and connecting with other passionate educators! I am learning so much!
3. Speaking of clip art, I finished another pack last night! My newest product is a pack of 50 bunting banners. I must admit I am a little obsessed with them. I think they are so cute and perfectly add a bit of cuteness to anything! (the one I added to my list above is one of my faves) If you are in need of bunting banners for your creations click the picture below to get them at my TpT store!
4. I am SOOOO excited to talk about my first interview/feature hosted by Deniece at This Little Piggy Reads ( I will be featured Monday, July 15th and with the feature will be my first GIVEAWAY! If you are interested in winning a pack of my clip art, follow me and Deniece. She's also featuring many new clip artists, most will have giveaways, too!

5. On my last 5 for Friday post I was leaving the next day to come back home, back to reality, from the beach. Well, my mom surprised the family with a quick 4th of July getaway! I'm headed back to the beach for the second time this summer! Ahhhh....I can't wait, sun, sand, and drink in my hand. :)


So there you go, last 5 for Friday until August! I read on Doodle Bugs Teaching that she will be taking July off! See you guys at the start of the new school year!
Stay inspired. :)

  2. Thank you Nicki! Yes, the beach is one of my favorite places to go! Sometimes I wished I lived there! :)
    Well, no all the time I wish I lived there haha

  3. I LOVE check lists too! Sometimes I even put something as simple as "brushed my teeth" on my list just to feel accomplished on the days that I'm not feeling as productive! HA! :)

    Love your blog and bunting! Glad to be your newest follower!

    1. Thank you Becca! I am just getting to my computer tonight, my baby girl decided that she wanted her bedtime to be 11:00 tonight, haha. I received your email earlier and will reply tonight too. Totally with ya on the lists! I really love using them when I do a big cleaning in my house. I feel like it makes me clean faster just so I can check things off. :)
