Five For Friday and a Freebie

Friday, May 9, 2014

This week has been a bit crazy.  It all started with me having to cancel a subbing job one hour before I was supposed to be there.  I hate doing that and I've had to do it twice this year because my daycare has been sick at the last minute.  There's nothing you can do when someone gets sick.  Then, to top it all off my son also got sick this week, so, no working for me at all this week.  Which means I got a lot of stuff done that I'd really been needing to.
 Even though I've had a sick kid home all week I still got crafty.  I made some clothespin magnets.  I just used washi tape and mod podge.  The washi tape was a little too big so I cut it down as best I could.  Once it dried I sanded the edges to get it the perfect size, then I mod podged them again for an extra seal. 
A few of them I didn't add magnets to.  We are using those ones to hop up our artwork on our art display wall.  I got the ideas for the frames off of Pinterest.  This is one of my favorite things in my house.
One of the first things I worked on was a teacher appreciation gift for my son's teacher.  I'm the room mom so I had to organize with all the other parents.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture and it was so cute.  I made a huge paper flower and inserted a gift card in it.  Then, there was a butterfly plant stake and also a chalkboard plant stake (I made it) that said, thanks for helping us grow.
I also made these wonderful scribble background pages.  I added them to my Teachers Pay Teachers shop and they're free.  There's 16 different backgrounds.  If you do download them please leave some feedback.
I also managed to finish a set of fish clipart that adorable!  They're such bright colors.
I also started listing some of my CVC packet that I've been working on and still haven't finished in my Teachers Pay Teachers shop.  I decided to sell parts of it separately and then it'll also be bundled together at the end when I get around to finishing the whole thing.  The first thing from the CVC mega packet is CVC Race Track Matching.
I just finished adding five new fonts to my Mega Font bundle today too.  I love the new ones.  They're some of my favorites. 


  1. Wow! You have been very productive! I'm not usually that productive with my kids home. When I was able to help more in the classroom my kids would get upset if I knew what the Mother's day project was because then it wasn't a surprise but I know the teachers really appreciate it. The flowers look great!
