Stop!  Wait!  Don’t Leave!  Yes! You’re in the right place! The cute little froggies have hopped away and my little blog spot has been glammed up!  Isn’t she pretty?  Thanks for being patient, as she underwent her makeover!  From what I was told…things were looking a little crazy for awhile there.  (I couldn’t look!) I had a few friends call me to find out what in the world was going on, lol!  And I guess me hinting around to exciting news didn’t help! Do you think they know how much I obsess over my little blog?

It’s still being tweaked a tiny bit, but I *LOVE* the design!  My previous template was all the way cute, BUT it was also a premade template that was resold a few times.  At first, I thought that wouldn’t bug me…..BUT IT DID! IT REALLY DID! I thought the blogosphere was big enough for all 3 of us to have the same design and never even see each other.  I was wrong! And every time I ran across one of the other exact same designs, I cringed just a little bit, lol! It was cute, but it was not unique….(sad face).

There are so many talented teachers, designers, and teacher designers out there! As I searched for a new look, I kept coming across other custom designs that caught my eye and they were all done by the same designer, so I scrolled down to see who it was and there was the name of the genius mind reader that put all this fabulosity together…..Miss Jenna Snowden!


1st Grade with Miss Snowden


She did an amazing job of putting exactly what I wanted without me knowing exactly what I wanted! And her work is super affordable! You should definitely stop by and pay her a visit!

Now, that’s not the only exciting thing happening!  It’s giveaway time!

Do you love giveaways as much as I do?  Who doesn’t, right?  Well, there are 3 in the works that I think you should definitely consider entering!
