New Blog Design, The Lovely Blog Award, and a Freebie!

     I'm the girl who likes to be original. When I first started my blog I wasn't sure what type of response I would receive. Well, after some time I'm pretty thrilled to have 50+ followers! (P.S. when I reach 100 followers there will be a sweet giveaway for all of you lovely readers to enter!) I originally used a blog template that anyone else could use and when I would see another blogger with it I would think two things. First, you have great taste ha! Second, if it confuses me to see the image associated with my blog on another blog it probably confuses some readers. This put me on the hunt for custom blog designs. OH MY Alicia from Dream Like Magic is AMAZING. I explained to her exactly what I wanted and she did EXACTLY what I wanted. She did it so well. I'm in love with it! I hope you all enjoy it to.
      Now as for my sporadic posting, I have been sick and the on Spring Break. My goal is to post at least 4 times a week. Lord willing more as I get more experienced at this.
      Pamela from First Class Teacher awarded me The One Lovely Blog Award! That was super duper sweet of her. I was awarded this award awhile back and my response to it is HERE. Please go check out the other teacher blogs I awarded. They have some GREAT stuff. Also be sure to check out Pamela's adorable blog I'm a fan of it and I think you should be to ;-)
      I have also been creating some things. I would love to offer the first three commenters who follow my blog, follow my TPT store, and leave me there email address to get a free copy of the three units I've been working on. The only thing I ask is for some feedback on TPT. I truly want to do the best I can with what I make. Now for those of you who are not the first three (I can relate because I seem to enjoy being fifth or sixth. . . oh well) there is a freebie for you!

Leaping Syllables
Nouns & Adjective: There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell
This freebie is a reading response/writing activity for students to complete after reading There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell!

Have a great Easter Weekend! I'm looking forward to tomorrow as a time to ponder and celebrate the fact that He, Jesus Christ, has RISEN!

Just found your blog. It's super cute. I will be posting about goods and services by the end of this week just for you. I also have a cute packet on tpt that I'll put on sale for $1. I can't give it away because I don't have a site license yet.

Hi Brittany!!

I love your cute units! They are great! I wish I could start making more things to sell, but I just can't find the time! Maybe this summer! Until then, I love seeing (and using) what other teachers come up with! I am a new follower!
