Tell Me What Ya Need!

Hi y'all! I have been one busy bee today! We are having our neighborhood yard sale tomorrow and Mr. Hubby and I spent the day cleaning out the basement to prepare for the sale!  In the midst of de-cluttering, "we" {Mr. Hubby? Me?...who knows?!} locked ourselves out of the house!!! Oh my word...8 months pregnant, 100 degree temperatures, nothing to drink and two hours in the miserable heat do not mesh one bit!  I have never been so happy to get back in the air conditioning as I was today!! 
Because I worked my little toosh off today, I decided to take a break and make a 3rd re-vamp of the week...once again, patting myself on the back!  {I am really enjoying this nesting!!}  I'd love to know what you think of these covers and what I can add to them.  So far I have a cover for...
Check out a little snapshot of each section too!  I am lovin' the pastel colors and patterns...gotta love Mrs. Ashley Hughes and her fab designs!!

Good-Bye Grad School...Hello TPT Re-vamps!!

I'm so excited so I had to make a quick post!!  I have officially completed Grad School as of tonight!!!  PTL!!  All I need to do is submit two last minute things and I can officially say that I have my Rank 1!!
 {30 hours post masters = Big Time Pay Raise...Woo Hoo!!!}
Here was my set up last night...prepping for my big-time research presentation!!

And this was me today minutes before I presented...with my good luck charm in tow...sweet Baby B!

Now that grad school is out of the way I can finally focus on this little ol' blog, TPT, this coming school year and of course...preparing for my sweet baby to arrive in...7 weeks!!  Gasp!!!
I have to give myself a little pat on the back.  Amongst finishing grad school, I popped out my second update...go me!!

Just like my Editable Polka Dot pack, this pack is also completely editable!  You can add in any words to the pack and choose your color scheme...whatever your lil' heart desires!!  I'll have both of these packs on sale through Friday so hurry on over and snatch one up!
{Click here for polka dots and here for chevron}

And while I'm patting myself on the back, check out my new and improved facebook page!  Complete with a tab for fan freebies and links to my instagram and pinterest pages!  Can you tell how proud I am of myself?!

You would totally make my heart smile if you would head on over to darlin' in first and like my page!  I plan to post exclusive freebies here in the the future for fans only!  You don't want to be the only kid left out now do ya?  Have I twisted your arm enough yet?! 

Ok friends, I am off to work on my next revamp...my binder covers! 


Just a little sample...what do ya think?  Anything you are looking for specifically in binder covers?  These are my fav to create because I am a total organization nerd!!

Night friends!!

P.S.  Did you notice how I blogged twice in one week...stop the world!  It's a miracle!!

Lots of baby and a little teacher stuff!

Hi y'all!!  I don't know about you but I am seriously having the best summer!  Getting ready for this sweet little girl is consuming my every minute but I am eating it all up!!  This sweet girl is seriously being spoiled rotten already!  We have had 3 showers already and still have 2 more...crazy-town but so blessed!!  Needless to say, she should have everything she needs and more! 
 
 
Her nursery is almost complete!  I just need to add a few little accessories and her monogram on the wall and it will be perfect...I am so in love with it!
 
 
Once we choose her name {which we think we have!!}, this monogram will go on the pink wall above the crib!!
 
 
 
I am obsessed with her changing table!  Snagged this lil' gem from Homegoods on clearance!!  The glass was missing from the door so I just replaced it with the fabric from her bedding...score!!  Her changing pad will go in between the two boxes {they will hold her diapers, wipes, lotion and anything else I need to grab in a hurry}.
 
And here I am at 30 weeks {I totally missed my 29 week pic so I combined them!}.  I'm up to 31 this week...we are officially in the home stretch and I couldn't be more excited!!!
 
Besides decorating the nursery, I have been consumed with my new hobby...bows!  I have seriously already made her 20...they are addicting and so easy {and cheap} to make!
 
 
 
Ok...back to teacher thoughts!  I am in the process of updating all of my units.  I am seriously embarrassed by so many that I have posted on TPT!!  Here is my latest update...
 
 
This pack is completely editable so that you can pick the color scheme of your classroom {I have included all colors and several shades of each color!} and then add the words that you need.  All you have to do is change the font so that it is way cuter than the boring Arial Narrow that I had to use.  I totally suggest Cara's fonts...they are my absolute fav!!! 
You can snag a copy of my newest re-vamp here.
 
And last but not least...
 
{Adorable graphic by the sweet Cara Carroll}
 
Click on the button above and then search for Darlin' in First!
 
I am off to work on more re-vamps...wish me luck that I can get them completed in the next week so I can move on to new stuff.  Heaven knows that my poor little store needs some fresh products in there!!
