And I couldn't resist some sunset and silhouette pictures...I just don't have the right lighting or horizon at home to get shots like that.
I saw a funny (but true) graphic on Instagram. I just went back to try to find it and find the original source. A site called We Are Teachers had it on their Twitter feed. I think it is pretty spot on. As much as the recognition from the students and parents is amazing, there are probably some changes that need to be made to the system that would show teachers that we truly appreciate them!!
Educlips, like 10 different things from Paula Kim Studio (amazing work for a crazy price), a few sets from Teaching in the Tongass, a preschool pack for my daughter, and a few other random sets for projects I have in mind. One of my favorite purchases was a last minute addition that I wasn't even in the market for. Jennifer mentioned THIS to me. If you are a TpT seller, you just might need this! It is awesome. It is a seller planner and data analysis tool. She is still adding to the planning portion but the excel charts and graphs are amazing. A lot of the information I was keeping track of on my own mostly by writing it down each week. I can make a basic table in excel but that's about it. But this uses the same data (that you can cut and paste from TpT instead of typing it all in) and spins it around in so many different ways so that you can see charts and graphs about top selling products, top months, top days, sale days, etc. I am slowly adding data and playing around with the different pieces. If I had this in January, I probably wouldn't be keeping track of my numbers by hand. Definitely worth the money!!!
A Dab of Glue Will Do contact companies looking for donations for the Teacher Turned Stay at Home Mom/Full Time on TpT meetup in Vegas. Let's just say it is going to be awesome. I don't want to give away any of the surprises but we are getting some love from several companies so far! If you are interested in coming, check out the Facebook info HERE. Or if you are like me and don't use Facebook, just contact Jennifer directly. If you have any connections for some donations for us that you'd be willing to share, let me know.
Well the girls are up now so my computer time is up! Have a great weekend and a Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies out there!
