Day 10 - Ten Happy Days

Friday, 24 April 2015


It is Day 10 of my 10,000 follower celebration. It has been loads of fun, but unfortunately the end did not pan out as I expected. I had hoped to present Day 10 to you 4 days ago. A rather angry cyclonic storm got in between me and the computer and I am now into my fifth day of no electricity. 

Thankfully my husband's workplace had power and internet restored yesterday and I was able to get here to post this for you. I have to say, I could get VERY used to working in a lovely quiet office rather than the kitchen bench at home! It is so different to be working in a quiet uninterrupted workspace. 

These Scrappy Teddies were in fact ready for you four days ago, and in my store, but you may not have noticed as I did not get a chance to put my post up before the power went out.

I have updated this set as part of my celebration and the set now includes lots of colourful teddies as well as the original brown ones. 


I have also made a new set of  Scrappy Stars. This is a versatile set that will help brighten your classroom and resources. 

Find both sets in my TpT store, by clicking on the image thumbnails. 



Thank you so much - from the very bottom of my heart - for helping me to celebrate 10,000 followers. I don't know where to begin in explaining how much this online teacher-blogosphere has meant to me over the last few years. Teaching can be, in some ways, a very lonely job and often we are in a position to be criticised from many directions. 

I have found the online community to be a warm, friendly and uplifting community. It has been a joy to have a place that has balanced out my other experiences. Quite a few years ago, a colleague said to me 'you may need to look further than your own school' - how true those words were. 

I am thankful for every challenge I have faced - each of them helped bring me here - to finding my place. 

Thank you for being a part of my place here and letting me be a part of yours.

Day 8 - Ten Happy Days

Sunday, 19 April 2015


Yay for Day 8! 

I am going to miss this daily fun. Let's just hope 15,000 comes around pretty quick so we can do it all over again!

Today I made a free font for you. It is called 'Pond Free Time' - yes, because we would all like some of that, wouldn't we?!

I put links to my free fonts on the sidebar of my blog here - you can click on those links and download the fonts directly. Alternatively, if you would prefer to download from TpT - just click on the image below to find it!


I also revised my scrappy set of Earth Day clipart. I liked the original set very much, but figured that an additional alternative set would give you a bigger variety of choices for your covers and resources. And we all know that variety is good! So just click on the image below to find the new set. 


Congratulations to the following 10 people that won a free set of clipart from my store. I have emailed you already - but if you do not see the email, please contact me. 



Thank you so much, once again, for all your support! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

DAY 7! Where has the week gone?

This celebration has made me so happy, and I do hope that is has brought a little happiness to your week too!

This scrappy little set of astronauts is my new favourite.. 


I have revised my set of 7 'fuzzy frames' and turned it into a more versatile set of 16! You will find a fresh new colour palette, a slightly wider space in the center and a full set of 'unfilled' frames. The unfilled frames will allow you to layer these on digi papers.

Day 2 - Ten Happy Days


It is Day 2 of my ten day celebration and appreciation! 

Today I have for you - a new set of orders. I loved making borders and frames when I first started learning how to draw digitally. One of my favourites is the 'Fuzzy Bump Borders'. I could not call them 'scalloped' at the time, because they were a little bit bumpy - I was still learning how to use all the tools and techniques in my software. The end result was perfect, in that they turned out just a little different that anything I had seen before. 

This new set is a variation on the original set. They have the same bumpy shape and a fresh new colour palette and smoother line!

Find them in my TpT store, by clicking on the image below:


And the originals are STILL free! Find them by clicking below.



Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments, feedback ratings and support - I treasure you all!

Have a great day!

This morning I woke up to find that my TpT store had reached 10,000 followers! 

I am celebrating and showing my appreciation with 'Ten Happy Days'! 

Each day there will be a new surprise for you - my way of saying thank you. I am hoping I can spend some time revisiting some old favourites as I look back on what helped me (and you) get to this point!

Today I have revised one of my original 'freebies' and added a couple of crazy kids to the set! 

Click on the image below to find my fresh new 'balloons' set. If you already have it - you now have new images to add to your collection. If you don't have it yet - I would love your feedback!

Spring Papers Freebie

Monday, 6 April 2015


I have nearly 10,000 followers in my TpT store. For a humble school teacher that decided to start making clipart so that teachers the world over could start to make their own digital teaching resources - that is a huge deal! Thank you! 

I am rather fond of a little nostalgia and it does indeed feel like just yesterday that there was NO clipart available that was "teacher-specific". I am beyond proud that I kicked things off with some 'teacher-y' graphics with friendly ToU, at affordable prices for teachers. To think that 10,000 people are interested in my store means so much to me, and makes all the hours I have committed worth so much. 


To celebrate I listed this little set of free spring papers. Just click on the link to find it. When I DO reach 10,000 I will have 10 days of fun and frivolity!

Look. Out. 


I made this set of 'Crazy Earth Love' kids yesterday. Hop on over to TpT to grab them!


Thank you so much friends, as always, thank you so much for stopping by!
