Overload of Information

I hope you guys are ready for a slam packed week of blog posts :)  The online world seems to be kicking into a new gear this week.  Can I tell you something kind of funny?  There are so many freebies, giveaways, sales, link ups, etc. going on I had to get a sheet of paper and decide what I would mention each day.  You know that section of the newspaper with all the coupons and sales?  Well, I think this week my blog may be similar to that section of the paper.  If you are a teacher, you are going to LOVE it!  If you are like my hubby, you will read the top and the bottom and skip the "teachery" stuff in the middle.

Oh, by the way, before I forget, I have to show you what I got to paint this morning.  It was so much fun.  I was on stage painting and it looked like I was painting with white on a white canvas.  You couldn't see anything.  Then, the song finishes and "Bam!"  black lights kicked on and you have this.  The picture was better in person, but this will give you an idea.  I also painted a ton of shirts with black light paint.  By the way, when you go to sit back down, it's a good idea to remember when you are carrying around wet paint.  The thing I had paint on was glowing, so I threw my iPad on top to cover it up.  Yep.  The next trip to the skating rink should be pretty interesting.  I went to the restroom and washed it off, but there is no way I got it all.

While we are talking about paint, I have to admit I am the world's worst at wearing flip flops and not thinking to check my toenails to make sure that the paint hasn't chipped.  So, one day this week I got to school and discovered I had 5 of my tiny toes missing a good deal of paint.  If this ever happens to you, look through your Sharpie collection.  Even now you can't tell which toes have bright pink Sharpie and which ones were painted with polish.  

Okay, those are my goofy stories for the day.  Now I have a few things to share.  First up is my newest set of freebies.  My kids can subtract, but they are having just a little bit of trouble with 2-digit subtraction.  I made three worksheets to practice.  Here's the catch.  You have to go to my FB page to download them.  You can click on my 1st Grade Fantabulous at the top of this page or you can click below this paragraph or any of the freebie pages and it will take you there.

Now, here's the surprise I promised.  The TPT sale starts on Tuesday.  I'm working hard at getting a few new products up by then.  My good friend Beth made this incredible blog button for all of us.  Clicking on it will take you straight to my store.  If you need some cute clip art then you can click on the Zip-a-dee-doo-dah button to check her out.  I'm also linking up with a few friends.  Below are buttons for their stores.  You will definitely want to see what they have cooked up for you.

Stay tuned!  I will hopefully have my Top 10 Mother's Day Ideas post later :)
