Shout Out...Give Away & some FREEBIES

Well, yesterday's sale was a smash!!! I won't become a millionaire anytime soon...(darn) but it looks like the sale allowed people to really take advantage of as much as possible, which is sooo cool! I have so much news to announce today, but I thought I would start out with a freebie!! I am working on creating clip art sets to go alongside literacy themes. When I recall having to (well wanting to) put together lessons around various books, I never had the clip art to go along with it that I really wanted. I am working on sets of graphics that you can use with your literacy and reading lessons, but I am going to keep the character to a minimum or focus on characters that correspond with the book, but can be used universally if needed. I accepted a request to work on some Henkes themes and I gladly took on the challenge...I love those books!! Even more exciting is that kids REALLY love those books! So, here are some accents that I worked on! I will be offering this set for FREE for 24 hours after I reach 300 followers...almost there!!!!

Enjoy. These are free for personal & commercial use...all I ask is for some "street cred"  (-; But before the Freebies (I know, I know...) I need to give a HUGE electronic hug (the best kind, don't ya know) to

Erika over at The Honey Bunch!!!!!

   Erika helped me with the code I have been struggling with for the last two weeks and now ( your right sillies) I have a beautimous...lovely....rolly blog thingy...hahahah... I can now put everyone's fancy and attractive buttons on my blog to share!! If you do not see your name there, please email me with you code....& I will make sure you are also on the 3AM hit list!!!!! ( the word...The word is the bird!!!
