A Very Bloggy Birthday!!

Hey ladies!!! I can't even believe it but today is my blog's 1st birthday! 

So this kind of crept up on me!  After taking a little break from the blogging world to deal with some personal things, I lost track of when I started and I couldn't believe when I found out that it was a year ago today!  So I am being a bad blogger and I don't have a huge giveaway or big freebie pack for you lovely ladies like some of the other awesome ones that I have seen.  But I did put my entire store on sale for 20% off all products!  This sale only lasts until 8/2/12 so don't wait!!

When I started this blog, I was looking for a hobby that wasn't going to make my husband and I gain 100 pounds (enter 2010's hobby-- baking).  I was also looking for something that wasn't going to cost a lot of money and give me something to do while we were hanging out or while he was playing       X Box... (Oh how I loathe the X Box). 

I had recently discovered the wonderful world of teaching blogs after realizing that the collaboration and teaming at my tiny little Catholic school was just not as good or helpful as I had always dreamed.  I don't know if it's because I am an Intervention Specialist and teachers don't think that they can team up with me on much.  Or maybe it's because I was a new teacher and they thought I didn't have much to offer.  Or heck, it could have been because they are all very much veteran teachers and on the verge of retirement, so in their minds what they've been doing has worked until now and it will work until they leave for good. 

But I was desperately looking for a place to find good ideas, share some of my ideas, collaborate with other amazing teachers, and have a place to grow in my profession!  This has been the greatest gift I could ask for and the answer to my prayers!  Thank you to all of you for your amazing support, ideas, and interest in the crazy ramblings that I have had to share!  I hope that you all stick around for many birthdays to come and I can't wait to be with you as yours continue to grow!

So go on over to my TPT Store and find some stuff that will work for you and your classroom of kiddos!  I have some stuff in the works that will get added hopefully soon!  Have a great night ladies and thanks for being a part of my wild ride!



  1. Happy blog birthday!

    The teaming and collaboration at my school is nonexistent, so I feel you 100%! I really don't know what I would have done last year without the blogging world. :)

    Marvelous Multiagers!

  2. Happy Blogiversary!! I am with you on loathing the XBox. My husband is a XBox junkie too & it drives me nuts lol. Blogging has definitely helped me with that though. :)

  3. Coming from a Catholic school, too, I feel the same way. I am soo inspired by the bloggers out there!
