And the Winner Is....

Wow!! I am so excited about this giveaway and the amount of entries we had!! THANK YOU!!

The winner of this wonderful giveaway is....
Lori Archer

Congratulations!!!
All of the artists, including myself, will be email you shortly!

Here is the complete Valentine's Day Set. I really enjoyed making these!



I did include some backgrounds in this set because I was having so much fun that I couldn't resist:) Also the dogs come in different colors so you can get a wide variety for your projects.

Also, I recently added this circle frame pattern set. I was just playing around and it just kinda happened. I love those kind of sets that come when you're not expecting it.


There are 40 different frames with many styles that you can use for any season, holiday, or occasion.

I hope you enjoy the New Years!!!

Linky for Freebie Week!!



I hope everyone enjoyed Freebie Week! If you missed it, don't worry...it will come around again:)

I did want to share a new set that I just posted at my TpT Store. It's my Fruit Set. It has 23 images with colored images and Black/White images. I can think of so many things to use this set for....
Math graphing
Descriptive Writing
Healthy Food Unit
The Hungry Caterpillar...YAY!!
and this list could go on and on!


I'm going to be working on my "Sweet Treats" set this week and also my Ultimate Polka Dotted Digital Background Paper Set. I'm telling you...it's going to be HUGE!! It may take me awhile...but I'm determined to get it done very soon! I thought...if I'm going to make the "ULTIMATE" set it has to have polka dots!!


So....I have started a linky for Freebie Week and added my own link from my blog over at 123 Teach with Me.
If you created something from my images this week, post about it over at your blog, link it up to your TpT store, however you want to share. Thanks for all of the love this week and I can't wait to see all of the creativity!!

Getting Ready for Another Freebie Week!!

Notice anything different? I've made some little changes to my new blog!!
A new design and a new button!
I wanted something a little more simple and I think I created exactly what I wanted. I really like it!!! I hope you do to:) It's still a work in progress so you'll be seeing changes again here and there.

No one knows better than The 3AM Teacher!! I was about to pull all of my hair out because I'm not the best with all of this techy stuff when it comes to HTML codes and nothing seemed to be working. She helped out and it looks like my computer has a little problem...I'm working on it though. So the final layout will hopefully be ready soon. At least you have an idea of the direction I'm heading in.


Now onto the good news......

For those of you who have been following me since I began this blog...which was back in early August of this year, you'll remember that in October I had my first Freebie Week. Well I'm gearing up for another one!!! That's right!!
Freebies are coming your way, every day starting this Sunday! 



Since it's the first full week of December, the theme for this Freebie week will be Christmas! 
Here is how it works. I post an image for 24 hours. You click on the image and save it! Then it's taken down and replaced with a new image the next day. Once the image is taken down, it's down for good. It won't be seen again:(  other than in a set you can purchase. So the best thing to do is grab it while it's FREE!!

Also, I want to thank those who nominated my blog for the Liebster Award! I was already nominated but they just kept on coming!! So I wanted to Thank You!!

D. Frideley over at Little Piggy Reads



Andrea over at The Groovey Educator
Groovy Educator

Thanks ladies!!!

So I hope you'll spread the word about my Freebie Week!! Of course the images are free for those who visit the site, but I would love for you to follow me! Besides....you'll know when the next one will be and there are always freebies when you least expect it!!

Another new addition to the site is a new profile pic. I felt like some of my followers were getting a little confused when they saw 123 Teach With Me so I wanted to just put a picture of myself. 
I'm pretty bad when it comes to taking pictures...my husband will tell you....I always cover my face or shy away...so this is a big step for me...hehe!

Hope you're having a great Friday!!!

Busy as a Bee!

Hey Every One!!

It's been forever and a day since I wrote on here and I feel awful about it! I was visiting family last week and enjoyed every minute but as all of us bloggers know...we are always thinking about blogging!!

 I couldn't stop thinking about all of the Linkys, blog hops, TpT forums .....I felt like I was missing out:( I didn't touch a computer ALL week!! 
I know....crazy!!!

I'm a little behind but I'm slowly catching up....s.l.o.w.l.y.

On a positive note, this past week gave me time to sketch out some new ideas and think about some new sets that I want to work on. I can't wait to share them with you. Especially a neat little Christmas/Holiday set that will be so cute for your bulletin boards!!! It's going to be adorable!!!

So on to a request that I've been working on. There were a couple of you looking for some weather clip art and I have put together a large set!!! Right now it has 49 images...and I'm not finished with it...I told you it was LARGE!! 

Here is a sneak peek...let me know what you think!!




I hope to have the completed set up at my store by tomorrow night.

Happy Halloween!!

Thank you to those who posted on "What do Teachers Need?" yesterday. You have given me some great ideas and I'm going to be very busy!! I may be emailing some of you soon just to get more specifics so be on the look out for that:) 

I wanted to send a little message to everyone here....

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Today is my daughter's 2nd birthday so today is extra special.

I've been busy today with baking cookies and getting treat bags ready for a Halloween party later on tonight. I've used my "Trick-or-Treaters" on a tag for the cookies. I think they turned out extra cute!! You can find this clip art set here at my TpT Store!!



Just another way to use my graphics!! That fabulous font is my latest addiction!!! I love it!!! Hop on over to Rowdy in Room 300 to check out her fonts:)

And some very exciting news....My clip art was featured in the newsletter over at TpT on Sunday!!! I couldn't believe it!!! I only started doing this a few months ago and to be noticed like that is just awesome!!!

Thank YOU for following me and supporting my work!!!


Be safe everyone!!!

What Do Teachers Need?? & a Math Set

I have been stuck in the house for the past couple of days because Sandy has brought some rain, wind, and cold weather here to Eastern NC. So I have been working on some new sets, like a Christmas set, when I thought....what kinds of clip art do teachers REALLY need for projects, lesson, centers, etc?? There are SO SO many winter and Christmas sets, especially backgrounds, that I thought I would take a break from the norm and start focusing on what YOU need!!

So tell me....what kinds of clip art are you having trouble finding out there...for any subject??

I have just posted a set of 24 dice images at my store. 



These could be used for Math centers, worksheets, posters. etc. This is what I'm talking about. I want to get back to creating sets that are "classroom" oriented. Now don't get me wrong...I'm still going to be working on those "cute" sets, but there is just an overload of "holiday" sets..if you haven't noticed lately over at TpT. 

So leave me a comment letting me know what you need!!! 

Thanks Bunch!! I hope you're safe where you are!!

Also I have a new Pinterest Account with A LOT of boards!!! Come by and start following me:)
