Buy 1 Get 2 Free AND My Best and Brightest


What a whirlwind of activities the last 3 days have been!! While it has been WONDERFUL celebrating our Savior's birth with loved ones, I am glad to have this day to actually do some unwinding and resting!
How many of you LOVE to go to the Day After Christmas Sale?
I do too, but today it's going to be from the comfort of home.
You can get in on it also. You can purchase ANY item in my store and receive TWO free items of equal or less value.
Just e-mail me what you want FREE along with your TPT user name.

Thanks and MERRY CHRISTMAS
 
In the meantime, I'm linking up with Christina over at Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge.
 
 
Here are some of my best and brightest moments in 2012...
 
Let me just say, it has been a WONDERFUL ride.
 
First of all, about this time last year, I stumbled across Pinterest, blogging, and TPT.  Yep, evidently I had been living in an alternate universe.  Can't imagine WHERE I was or WHAT I was doing before I found all of these.  They have all made such a difference in my life.
 
The best thing that happened to me was starting my TPT store
What a blessing TPT has been.  I have met some of the most wonderful people, made lots of virtual friends, and helped supplement my income to make up for the furlough days.
 
Another bright spot for me this year was when I met Christi Fultz and got a brand new design!
 
One of most proudest moments this year was getting two of my freebies in the TPT newsletter.
Downloaded over 17,000 times!

Downloaded over 19,000 times.
 
If you haven't gotten these freebies, just click on the pix to get them.  What a great feeling to know my products are being used!
 
My mosted visited linky party was:
 
91 other bloggers linked up their own favorite freebie.  Click above to find some great freebies.
 
My most humbling experience was when several TPT teachers came together to help out my friend Teresa.
 
God was really working through some of the most generous teachers out there!
 
My favorite blog post had to be the pictures I shared about my Christmas Craft Day.
 
 
For those of you keeping track, I'm sure you realize I have 2 days left of freebies that I promised you.
I am working on those now and will be back in the next couple of days with those.
 
Enjoy your day of rest and relaxation!

  5. Love your blog! I just found it through a google search but I now see that you linked up for 2012 Best and Brightest. I linked up there yesterday (feel free to check out my post). I would like to follow you but for some reason I don't see your button to join (I do see subscribe by email), am I missing something? I have only been blogging for 3 months but feel free to hop over and visit. I'm heading over to your TpT store now, I want to take you up on your B2G1 free offer LOL. Anyways just wanted to say hello and that I look forward to following your future posts.
