Meet Charlie, Frosty Update & Some New Goodies (Freebies)!!
Well, this morning (errr, I mean yesterday morning- I haven't gone to bed yet), I went to the store to get some treats for my son's class to celebrate his 11th B-day!! It was on the 3rd, but I didn't care (-;
While we were walking out of the store, we noticed a sign hanging on the customer service board (where everyone posts about their lost animals - so sad). Here is what the sign said:
FREE 5 MONTH SHELTIE TO A GOOD HOME
I couldn't resist the temptation to call, but never thought that I would be in tears by the end of my conversation with the lady )-; She had to give away the dog because her husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 Lymphatic Cancer!! She began to cry as she told me the story and I had the hardest time holding back the tears on my end. Maybe it was all the stress I have been under, but her story just broke my heart!!
At 4pm we got the call from her to visit the puppy (and she lives within walking distance - right on).
To my great surprise - I fell in PUPPY HEART LOVE at first lick (I didn't lick back...I promise..hahaha). We surprised the kids and they're first response:
"Where did this dog come from? Who's is it? Can we Keep it?"
We talked about cute dog names & here was the list:
Foxy (to rhyme with our female dog, Roxy)
& my suggestion (only when asked):
Everyone loved the name Charlie (isn't mommy the best for saving the god from a name like Zeuss..hahaha)
Well, without further Adieu...
Meet our Cute, foxy-looking, furry, energetic, (already tinkled on the floor...twice...grrr), playful, happy, and never-resting puppy....Charlie...
OMG! I am soooo in love with this dog, but now I am coming to the realization that even a free do costs money...hehehe...let's hope sales stay strong!! I will keep you updated - Charlie has quite the personality...maybe we should have named him, Mr. Personality...LOL
I have REALLY exciting news about my Frosty Takes on the Globe Linky!! Check out his map so far - I would love to have him travel to all 50 states!! I think we can do it!! Please re-post this around your schools, through Pinterest and anywhere else to get Frosty traveling all over!! I am soooooo very excited about this upcoming Linky - I have been planning it since last year...hahaha...yes, it took that long to find time...LOL!!
He will be traveling to 16 states, as well as Canada, beginning towards the end of September. I will be creating a blog just for his travels and experiences to make it easier to follow and enjoy him. I am sooooo excited!!
There is still plenty of time to get your classroom signed up to get a visit from Frosty this year. You do not need to have a blog to sign up. All you need to have an email address, a classroom, and a camera (-;
I have been working on so many graphics and I have so many ideas that I don't have time for (I still need to finish my Currently and link up with Farley). My sales have been pretty consistent this month, which has been a huge blessing - I have many changes taking place in my personal life and I am so blessed by the amount of support, encouragement, and love coming from many of you!! Thank you so much!!
Gosh, I am really rambling right now (1:50am in AZ). Here are a few popular items on my TPT store right now...
Many people have asked if the letters in the set are slanted or if they contain a shadow - I am here to tell you that the letters in this set are simply straight with no shadows.
One thing that is frustrating and a bit confusing is that I have received really great feedback from buyers, but my rating for this set is only a 3.9??? I just noticed this and I have to say that I am a little sad )-;
Now, I have a couple freebies for you from my newest set...ENJOY!!
(See my TOU for information about how you can use these)
I only made grades K-5th because I made these for a book study that I am a part of. I will create more grade levels and post them later today (-; Thank you for following my blog & have a great rest of the week!!
