Hearts for a Heart Warrior

I have something really special to announce! 

Starting today, What the Teacher Wants is hosting a fundraiser for a very deserving family here in Utah. Some of the biggest names in the TPT clip art world have all come together to help raise money for a sweet little "Heart Warrior" named Ryder. 

Ryder's mom, Jessie, and Natalie (from WTTW) used to teach together and are very close friends.

Heartbreakingly, Jessie's 4th child, Little Ryder Cannon was diagnosed with a Congenital Heart Defect. He spent over 180 days in the ICU while doctors tried everything they could to fix his heart. 

During his life, he underwent three open heart surgeries, one of which was an experimental surgery to replace his heart valve; he was the first baby at Primary Children's Hospital to ever have it done. That surgery was a success and earned him the nickname of "Heart Warrior." However, the doctors were never able to completely fix his broken heart. Ryder spent 30 days on the heart transplant list, but unfortunately the new heart never came. 

Little Ryder passed away in August of 2014 at only 8 and a half month old.

During his short time in the world, Ryder blessed the lives of many. This little Heart Warrior leaves behind a mom, dad, two sisters and a brother who miss him every single day. The financial burden of it all leaves a huge stress on the family. The medical bills are still coming in and Little Ryder still needs a headstone for his grave.

{To read more of Ryder's story, click here.}

All donations collected through this "Hearts for a Heart Warrior" fundraiser will go to help the Cannon family with Ryder's medical bills and will also help purchase a headstone for Ryder's grave. 


For your $25 donation, you will receive

 "The Ultimate Valentine's Day HEART and LOVE Inspired Graphics Mega Bundle

There are over 300 graphics included in this amazing pack!

(These are both exclusive graphic sets and are not available anywhere else.
These are custom designed for this special fundraiser!)

January Super Giveaway - for Clipart Addicts

Happy New Year, friends!

I am excited about the Super Giveaways I have planned for this year. Each month will be a different prize. The Super Giveaway is open to Clipart Addicts

Other good news for my Clipart Addicts, is a new free set. Meet the 'Love Bunnies'. They will sure make your Valentine and Spring themed resources pop!

They are ready in the Facebook group - but if you are a Clipart Addict and choose not to be in the Facebook group, please just email me with a link to your blog, and I will forward them to you via email. 

They have also been listed in my TpT store for sale - just click the image below. 

This week, I also finished revising my 'Valentine's Day Clipart Mega Pack'. I wanted to give it a fresh new color palette and update the kids so they match my Stick Kids range. If you have already purchased this set, you can just download the new version by going to your "My Purchases" tab in your TpT account. 

It was a huge undertaking, but I am so pleased with the results and cannot wait to see the teaching resources you make with them. 

Each of the 9 sets are sold separately in my store also. I updated the listings for all of those as well. I think these little Love Bugs are my new favourite!

Thank you so much for stopping  by and helping me to kick off 2015 with some fun!

A Scrappy Circle Frame Freebie

I have been busy sketching some 'lovely' sweeties to get ready for Valentine's Day and thought I would share this set of circle frames with you. Click here to find them FREE for now, in my TpT store. 

My Scrappy December set has been completed. I did a few 'early' doodles to get the set finished as I have a few busy days ahead of me, and I know that a lot of you are busy at home being 'creative' with teaching resources. I hope these help!

I have also launched 'Scrappy January' a little early, as I didn't want you to miss out on the early bird price, if you are busy recovering on January 1st! 

It is just a tiny $4 for one day only as another special thank you for all your support in 2014. Head over HERE to find it.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Wishing you a creative day!
