I’m very happy to say that I’m almost at 100 followers at my store on TPT!!
I’m so close in fact, that I’m just 2 followers away!! Can you believe it?? It’s been a long road and I’m happy with the way things have developed for me. It’s been a great learning process and I know that there’s more to come.
I have several things planned for when I do hit that big personal milestone. I’ll be holding a giveaway here on the blog. There will be 3 great prizes available!! I’ll also be uploading some new products to my store just for this, holding a sale in my store, and more!! Oh, one of the “more” things will be that I hold “flash freebies” for some of my products and you can find out when I set the up by following me on Facebook. You can do that if you click here.
So, stay tuned and if you love The Schoolhouse, let your friends and family know!!
Well, this is my first time linking up with “Currently”. I’ve seen them on other blogs, but never done it, so here goes my first time….
As you can tell, I’m obsessed with CSI right now. I’ve loved that show since day 1 and still do. Thank goodness I own the DVD’s so I’ll never really be without it. At least Grissom will be back, and Catherine too. Hoping that Nick and Brass both make an appearance to make it complete.
Are any of you fans too?? If so, what do you think will happen to reunite the cast?? I’m hoping for Sqweegel because it’s a weird case that was never solved.
Please click the button below to check out the link-up and her great cause this month….
I know I haven’t posted in awhile, but I promise that I have several free printables coming your way. They just need tweaks done to them. Then you’ll be able to have access to my latest printables!!
I want to let all my readers, and especially my followers (by e-mail) know that I’ve changed clients. If you currently follow me via e-mail, you’ll have to re-sign up to get my newsletter. I’m no longer using the one that comes with WordPress and have switched over to MailChimp.
I’m sorry for any inconvenience that this might cause. However, it’s my hope that this will make it easier for everyone to keep up. The new newsletter is set to be released every evening at 6pm on any day that there’s a new post. I was going to go for a weekly newsletter, but I figured that I don’t post that often, so daily (or whenever I post) will work for everyone. Also, the newsletter will just be a snippet view, so you’ll have to click on the article to read it in full.
Please sign up for my new MailChimp newsletter updates to follow my blog via e-mail by using the form in the right hand column to “subscribe”. I appreciate it and look forward to you following along!!
If you have any questions, problems, or comments, please leave me a comment or use the “contact” button in the right hand column. I love to hear from my readers and followers!!
Today marks this blog being 2 years old. I can’t believe it’s been that long already!! I remember people thinking that I was crazy for starting another blog, but I really felt that all my printables needed to be separate from my daily life blog. I stand by that as I mark today’s blogoversary!!
I always like to give a few stats on an ocassion like this. It’s fun to see where the blog has come from, where it’s at, and where it’s going. So without further ado, here’s some stats for my 2nd blogoversary…..
I’ve had 89,760 views with 327 comments. The best day ever was 968 views. There’s 189 posts with 33 categories and 1,800 tags. My followers include 56 blog, 8 comments, 163 Twitter, and 76 Facebook. The Schoolhouse has been shared 131 times in media like Pinterest, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, Digg, StumbleUpon, and so on. The top shared post is “F is for Fiery Furnace”. There has been 7,182 spam comments blocked.
I think that about covers it!! I want to thank all of you who visit my blog. I love sharing my printables with you and I know that even when life gets in the way of me being able to make new ones, when I return, you’re still here. I appreciate you voting for me, referring others to The Schoolhouse, following me, and just allowing me to keep this blog going!!
I’m sorry that I’m running a little late with this. Kinda got wrapped up in life!! I let my daughter hit the “generate” button to choose are winner and she had fun being able to help RANDOM.ORG decide who our winner was.
Thank you to everyone who participated!! I only wish that I could give you all a certificate. Without you, my readers and followers, my blog couldn’t exist. I appreciate all you do and the time you take to read my posts and download what I create.
Mary, your certificate will be in your inbox no later than 8pm tomorrow night!! Congrats and I hope you enjoy your gift certificate. Thanks for following and participating!!
Well, there’s a problem here at The Schoolhouse. I have files ready to be uploaded to 4Shared to share and post for my followers contest. However, 4Shared isn’t cooperating and I can’t upload a single file. I’ve tried via the web and desktop. So now I’m in a bind and I have nothing to share for my first day of the contest.
Please be patient and I’ll keep trying as the day goes on. I’ll even put them on a memory stick and try from my daughters computer. If nothing works, I’ll try each and every day and share more than one thing at a time if I have to. But mind you, there will be plenty of freebies one way or the other!!
Now, read that top post and follow my blog and/or Facebook page, then leave a comment for each way that you put the word out about the contest for your entry to win the TPT gift certificate!!

I’m trying very hard to get back into creating new educational and Christian printables and blogging about them to get them out there to the kids. The only way I can do that is to reach the parents, teachers, daycare providers, and those that work with or spend time with the children. To do this, I’m holding a special contest right here on The Schoolhouse to boost my followers!!
My goals are simple…..

Well, it’s a $10 gift certificate to Teachers Pay Teachers and ONE name will be drawn from the comments (which I’ll number) and let Random.org choose. I’ll announce the winner at 8pm (CST) on 3 March.
I should add that everyday, or at least to the best of my abilities, I’ll be offering at least one Dr. Seuss themed printable. Some will be “old”, but there’s many that haven’t seen them and many will be newly created materials. So please, be sure to check back often to see what I’m sharing!!
