What's for Dinner, Zebra's are in & FREEBIE LINKS

Well, I have had a lot going on personally and I am having to make some tough decisions this week. Life can really throw some curve balls when you're not looking. I am trying to stay focused, positive and thankful - but it is not always easy to do so. I am so thankful for all of the friendships and support that I have through blogging, TPT & FB.  
Because I took some time away, my sales drooped (I meant to write drooped) a little and I have a pile of "to-do's" for today. I am currently finishing the Greek graphics, creating punch cards, making a pumpkin set, and working on the overviews for the Common Core Book Study I am in. I am the team leader for the Kindergarten group & I have to admit that I have not been the best team leader. No worries, today is a new day and I still have time to redeem myself...hahaha 
I am also working on a REALLY FUN & EXCITING LINKY that I will be posting about tomorrow!! I can't wait to show all of you and to get this Linky Movin'
To more exciting news!! I was one of the FIRST clip art artists featured in TPT's newsletters!!! I was so excited to get the news because I REALLY needed a little sunshine at that moment! Well, another great way to lift spirits is by making something yummy for dinner, which I did!! Our favorite meal is Spanakopita (A yummy Greek dish). I make this about once a month & my son can eat about 8 of them in ONE sitting...YIKES!! I decided to take pictures and give you my recipe for Spanakopita! Let me know if you try this recipe and how it turned out! You can download the PDF version of the recipe below to save to your computer and print.

Onto Zebra News!!

I recently received the Zebra Z-Mulsion pen line to sample from Shoplet Office Supplies & I was so excited when I got my package!! How cute is that Zebra & the snazzy pen case!!??

Each person in my family tried out each pen and although we loved all of them, the pink, Z-Muslion EX was the popular favorite (thank goodness I claimed this one...hahaha). The Z-Mulsion EX worte smoothly and a bit thicker than the rest of the pens. It was definitely just the right amount of gel and the pen grip was very comfortable.

The pens are very smooth and the mechanical pencils included in the set were a nice surprise. Everyone got to pick out two favorites. My favorite pencil is the Zebra M-301 0.5! It is the perfect size to keep in your purse & I LOVE the eraser! The eraser is small, but completely erases without leaving any smearing or residue.
