TPT Seller Challenge Week 2

This is now officially more than I blogged all of last year! I am hopeful that this is a new trend. My goal for this blog is to post once a week for the rest of this year.  I know that this weeks challenge was about our dreams for TPT but I thought I would include this one for my blog too, since I really do enjoy the networking and learning that comes from reading others blogs and blogging myself. And now that I put my goal out there hopefully that will help keep me on track!

But back to the challenge..... here are my TPT goals:
So #1 and #2 - We just bought a new the extra income I make with TPT will help to offset our new higher costs, the work that needs to be done on the house to make it a home and hopefully still allow us to take some family vacations.

#3 - I love the way that TPT helps me to be a better teacher on a daily basis. The resources that I find are amazing and I love reading everyone's blogs and learn so much.

#4 - I really have been so blessed in my life by so many people and TPT allows me to pay some of that forward. As I continue to build up my shop and my blog I hope I can do even more of that.

Thanks so much for reading and stay tuned.....not only am I moving my home but I am also moving to a new classroom this summer so there will be lots of posts about setting up and organizing my new room. 

Thank you to all the great bloggers that organized this challenge! Be sure to check them out!

Blowing Off the Dust and Makeover Madness

Well I have decided it is time to blow the dust off of this little old blog of mine! I just looked and can't believe that the last time I posted it was 2013...WHAT! HOW DID THAT HAPPEN??? I guess I just have been uninspired, which is why when I saw the TPT Seller Challenge I knew I had to join!

When I saw the first challenge was the makeover of a TPT product there was no question it would be my Apple Math and Literacy Activities.  This was my very first product and I gave the cover an update a year or so ago but I was still not happy with it. I have gotten tons of great new clip art so it was time to go to work. I had no idea that it would take me over a week and would lead to adding more activities to the pack, updating all of the clip art,  adding color and black and white versions of almost everything, and redoing the preview for TPT as well! Whew it was A LOT of work but TOTALLY worth it! I just love how it turned out!

And I am impressed that I remembered how to blog! Now my new challenge is to keep blogging! I think I can.... I think I can.... I think I can!!!! On to this weeks challenge!
