Are You Feeling Lucky?


Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Hope that you're feeling lucky (or at least drinking a green beer to make up for it).  I'm here to let you know that there is a HUGE...no, really, HUGE!...giveaway of Secondary Test-Prep resources from TPT sellers.

Teachers all know that the changing of winter to spring isn't just about saying goodbye to cold, gray days and hello to flowers and sunshine.  For us, the change means a new season is upon us--testing season.  I've joined Julie from Faulkner's Fast Five and Lauralee from The Language Arts Classroom to contribute one of my test prep resources to their big Test Prep giveaway.


To enter, simply follow the steps below:

1. Click on the prize pack you're interested in

2. Head to Lauralee's blog for all the details and directions

3.  Start exploring new blogs and resources to find some new favorites

4.  Enter to win lots of great prizes

5. Keep your fingers and toes crossed from now until April 1, when the winners will be announced (no fooling!)






Contest runs through March 29, so don't forget to head over and enter.

And may the luck of the Irish find you today!

Let Me See Your Business Cards!

While I am certainly not a blog designer, I'm pretty impressed, if I do say so myself, with this blog design.  I watched lots of videos and stalked blog tutorials to come up with a look that I wanted.  Sure, there are some more elements that I'd like to add, and some that I'm not entirely happy with, but I think that, in time, I will make tweaks and adjustments to suit my needs.  I thought long and hard about hiring a blog designer to do the work for me, because, let's face it, their blogs always look AMAZING, but I knew that by investing the time myself, I'd be a little more inclined to post regularly.

Along those same lines, knowing that the TPT conference is coming up, I realized that I needed to update my business cards.  Trying to keep the same look that I created with this blog, I designed a 2-sided card that I'll be happy to share with fellow teacher-authors at the conference.  Tell me, what do you think?



I'd love to see your cards.  And I can't wait to exchange with you in Vegas!
