Biblical Friendship Printable Poster - Boy Version

A few weeks ago, I made a printable poster about friendship for girls. One of the Facebook groups I'm in asked for a boy version. So here it is - the Biblical friendship poster for boys!

I would greatly appreciate it if you would download it from my Teachers Pay Teachers store (it's free) and leave me some star feedback on that site. My store is new, and I can use all the love I can get! :)

Knit Ruffle Baby Hat

If you read my blog, you will know I love to knit. I taught myself how to knit years ago, and I haven't stopped since. Today I would like to share with you an adorable toddler hat that I made a few years ago.

This hat is not for sale; I made it for my daughter. But isn't it adorable?

So here's the scoop. The pattern is written by Russell Lehrer, and you can find it here on his blog or here on Ravelry.

Although my version of the hat wound up being more for a toddler than a baby, it still turned out to be very lovely. It was a very quick knit. My favorite part? The cute flower you see from the top down...

Gah. I can't even. It's too adorable.

An Adult Coloring Book JUST. FOR. TEACHERS.

Today I will introduce you to part two of my new TPT store. I've worked hard on this PDF for several months, and it originally was intended as an end-of-the-year present for a teacher friend. Since I had time to only work on it in bits and snippets, many of my other friends saw it at various points in its creation. Most commented that I should sell it. So here it is: an adult coloring book created specifically for professional educators!

This coloring book is 23 pages of teacher-humor cleverly disguised in cartoon outlines, hand drawn by Yours Truly. It's stress relief in it's finest form: zen-meditative coloring meets side-cramp LOL fun!

It's perfect for:
- Principals (Welcome Back to School, Staff! Sorry About the Three Extra In-Service Days!)- Parents (Thanks, Teacher, for Putting Up With My Little Hooligan All Year!)- Teacher Appreciation Week (We Don't Know What to Get You Because You Already Have 50,000 Mugs!)

I currently only have it for sale in DIGITAL format (no hard copies). You can purchase it from two places:
If you have no preference between TPT and Etsy, please purchase it from TPT and leave me some feedback. I need some star love on that website!

Here are some watermarked screenshots of what you can expect when you purchase the coloring book. There are also many pages of tomfoolery not included in these previews that you will enjoy when you download the entire book!

New Teachers Pay Teachers Store!

I'm happy to announce the launch of my new Teachers Pay Teachers store! Right now I only have two offerings available, but I will add more that I have made over the years both as a classroom teacher and homeschooling mom. For now, let me introduce you to the two items that currently being offered.  Today we will start with a freebie! Huzzah!

It is a FREE printable poster about friendship!

You can download this poster for FREE at my TPT store. The only thing I ask is that you please leave a rating. I'm a new seller on TPT, so I need some stars to get me started!

I created this poster to help teach my daughter about friendships. Maintaining uplifting friendships can be tricky for all students, but for young ladies especially. This printable poster lists the qualities of a good friend, with pertinent Scripture verses referenced for further study. You can use this poster as a springboard for a unit on friendship or simply place it in your classroom or homeschool as a visual reminder of how godly friends should act.

Tomorrow I will introduce you to the second offering in my TPT store. It is much more fun, and it is specifically created for classroom teachers!
