Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years Sale!!

So, I'm officially blogging from the new computer!! I'm having a bit of trouble getting used to it, as it's a bit bigger than the other one. The keyboard is really giving me the most problems!! They keyboard has a number keypad on the right side, like a normal desktop keyboard would. My old laptop didn't have this, so it's been difficult getting used to some of the button placement. It's also been weird getting used to the ginormous mouse pad on this thing. I feel like I'm always swiping something or clicking somewhere I shouldn't. The changes between my old Windows and Windows 7 has also taken some getting used to! Overall though, I am LOVING it to the max!


Now all I need is the bright pink OPI switch cover and I'll be a happy camper!! 

I've been busy getting to work already. I just can't help it. I was bored within a few hours this morning, and I'm barely 24 hours into my break (okay so I suppose Friday, Saturday, and Sunday was considered break too), but for me it felt like it started today! I haven't attempted anything on Photoshop. I need ideas?!?! What are people looking for that they can't find? I have a whole list of LA topics I need to make things for, as well as an Earth Science unit, and possibly some shape stuff. I have to look at what's coming up in math. Are there posters you just can't find? A unit you're looking for?!? Let me know!! 

I just posted an Adverbs mini unit on Teacher's Notebook. It has a few worksheets, a mini poster, as well as 2 projects along with the writing paper to accompany the projects. If you're interested click on it and it'll take you to my store!!


I'm also in an amazing mood. I happened to be trying to find an old post of mine with something on ProTeacher (which I haven't been on since who knows when) when I came across a post from September about a bunch of my followers who were sad when I went on my hiatus. It made me realize how much I love my bloggy followers and appreciate everyone times a million. I can't tell everyone how much every comment, every post, every pin on pinterest, everything makes me feel! I'm blown away that others find things that I do so interesting. I just thought I'd start sharing in hopes I could help someone. I got so frustrated after the first incident of cruel people stealing things from me, I thought I'd never come back. The support I got the second time around, especially when things went sour  a SECOND time was unbelievable. So as a thanks to everyone I'm running a sale in my store starting tomorrow in celebration of the New Year and everyone's crazy support!!


Well my Bulls are losing, and I'm exhausted, so it's time to refresh my brain for more creations tomorrow. I'm open to creating things, so please if you're looking for something ask away!!

Isn't that a hoot when you are trying to get used to a new computer? You'll be typing away and your fingers feel like they are in the right spot but all you get on the screen is gobbledy-gook?!? LOL.

Enjoy playing with your new toy!!!!

What laptop are you currently using? My husband bought me a laptop since he broke my previous one and now it'll take awhile to get use to the keyboard as well. I currently use something like this - i15rv-1952blk
