Five for Friday - A Recap of my Week

http://doodlebugsteaching.blogspot.ca/2014/08/five-for-friday-linky-party-august-22nd.html
 
I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching's Five For Friday linky party.  Here is a recap of my week!
 My brother's in town!!  Before this week, I hadn't seen my brother for almost 2 years!  The last time I saw him was Christmas of 2012.  He lives in Calgary, and I live in Victoria.  Neither of us could afford to make the trip in the past couple years, but he's in town now with my sister-in-law and my beautiful niece, Nati!  I was so excited to see him, and I'm excited to go golfing with him and my dad tomorrow.

 


Me and my brother, Jason, at our sister's wedding in 2009.


 Tuesday was my mom's birthday.  We had a barbecue with my mom and dad; my sister, Teresa, brother-in-law, Jason, and nephew Caleb; my brother Jason (yes, they are both named Jason), sister-in-law, Mia, and niece, Nati; and my grandparents!  It was lovely to have everyone together, even though it was quite windy and our plates and napkins kept blowing off the table!

 Nati and Caleb are so cute together when they play.  They truly love each other as cousins and when they get together, they are best friends.  Except when Caleb takes a block from Nati.  I love this picture so much!  You can really see Caleb's joy and Nati's frustration. 

 

I love being an auntie! And I love when I get to see both Caleb and Nati together!  Luckily, my sister lives close by, so I see Caleb all the time - we have a weekly dinner at my parents' house every Wednesday - but Nati is his only cousin, and it's really great when they can see each other.


 Besides spending time with my family, I've been spending a lot of time this week making new clip art!  I have a new Back to School set and a Bear Buddies set that are both for sale in my TpT store.  Click on the images below for more info.  They are both selling for only $2.29.

My next door neighbours are so sweet!  They are a retired couple and every morning they sit outside on their front porch and wish me a lovely day at work.  They leave me chocolates at my door on every holiday.  They invited me over to their place for a barbecue yesterday.  Their kids and grandkids (and one great grandkid!) were all there.  It's so nice to live in a friendly neighbourhood.  They also gave me 5 peaches off their tree.  Delicious!

Meet the Teacher Blogger Link-Up


I am linking up with Stephanie from Falling into First for her Meet the Teacher Blogger party!  I've been reading about some of the amazing teachers that I follow, and it's always nice to get to know more about them! 

My basic bio:  I'm 28.  I live in beautiful Victoria, BC, Canada.  I am an auntie, sister, daughter, teacher, friend.  I started blogging in April 2014, and I'm really enjoying it so far!  I'm starting my fifth year of teaching this year at a new school.  I'll be teaching grade 4/5 again!

 THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...
 
My nephew, Caleb and my niece, Nati! 
 

 
 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
I've always been interested in television and how it's made.  I think it would be really cool to work behind the scenes in a production role.  I have a friend from high school who went into that field and her work seems really interesting.
THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Creative.  Loyal.  Auntie. 


FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"
 
 
 "Hey, politician who's never set foot in a classroom, please tell me how to do my job, said no teacher ever!!"

 
Q: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?

Taylor Swift, Jimmy Fallon, Jennifer Lawrence, Justin Timberlake.  That would be such a fun party!
 

Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?

I've been thinking about writing a book loosely about my life and friends in high school, but the title has not come to me yet...
 
 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
 
I'd want to be able to speak every language in the world!


Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?
 
"Not my circus, not my monkeys."
Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
"What about Georgia" by Miranda Lambert
 
 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?
 
I'm definitely more of a night owl than a morning person, even though I like to go to bed super early on weeknights (like, 9:00).

 
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?
 
That's such a hard question!  I've started making clip art, and I'm really excited about this pack:
http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/My-Family-Clip-Art-BUNDLE-Six-Clip-Art-Sets-in-One-1393427
 
 
Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 

My dad sends me texts every Saturday with cat pictures!  He calls it Cat Saturday.



 
 
Now that you know a little more about me, head over to Falling into First to meet some other amazing teacher bloggers!

Who's Ready for Spring?

I am so excited to share my newest clip art bundle!  I've been working on a spring garden theme, and it's now ready to buy!

Ballerinas, Sisters, and Families, oh my!

I have been hard at work on some new clip art sets


The first group I made was my Ballerina Set.  It really started with the skirt.  I was playing around with some clothing designs, and the dress looked like a tut, so I went with it.  The set includes 36 ballerina images (full colour and black line images) of ballerinas in various skin tones.
 

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Ballerina-Clip-Art-Set-36-images-including-black-line-1384844


 
 
I wanted to change the skirt and do something else, so I came up with this Sisters Clip Art Set.
 
http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Big-Sisters-and-Little-Sisters-Clip-Art-Set-30-Images-1385664
 
After making the sisters, I wanted to make whole families.  I was a little afraid of making boys, because I didn't know how I was going to make the hair.  I think girl hairstyles are easier than boys!  I ended up trying out a few different choices and I am in love with them!

I made 6 different family sets, each with 10 family members. (They would have had 8 members, but my sister convinced me to make grandparents - thanks, Teresa!)  I have them for sale separately in my TpT store, but it is a much better deal to buy the whole bundle (over 50% off!).

If you like them, please share this post!  This is my first attempt at clip art people, and I am thrilled with how they turned out!  What do you think?  What should I make next?  Let me know in the comments below!
