New Year’s Resolutions

I’m excited to join in this link up….

New Year's Resolutions Banner

I don’t typically make resolutions.  I just don’t do it and for the most part, I don’t follow through.  I’m pretty good at setting goals though and working toward them.  So, when I saw this linky, I was looking forward to joining up because I know these are a few of the things that I know I need to work on.  My favorite saying and what keeps me striving for more and knowing that making mistakes is alright (and I hope that those around me “get it”)….

Work in Progress 10

With that said, here’s my “resolutions” for 2016….

A Note to My Followers

The Year in Review and What’s Coming in 2015!!



Hello to all!!

This is my first ever not to you, my followers.  I want to say thank you for following my store/shop.  I especially want to let you know I appreciate anyone who has made a purchase in 2014 or helped spread the word about The Schoolhouse!!

I’ve learned so much in my first 6 months as a seller.  I’d love to grow and expand The Schoolhouse.  Part of that growing is making sure that I have products that you need and can use.  Please feel free to contact me by using the ” Contact ‘The Schoolhouse’ ” button in the right hand column on this page.  I do accept requests and will make adjustments to products if at all possible.  I can’t always guarantee this, as it depends on what is needed.  I’ll do my best though!!

What’s coming in 2015….

  • All new products over $3.00 will be 25% off for the first 48 hours.
  • One freebie a month will be posted either in my store or on my blog.
  • At least one new Christian product will be added to the store each month.
  • Expanding into selling clipart drawn by my husband and possibly fonts with easy to use TOU.

I hope that you’re looking forward to the New Year as much as I am.  I want you to know that I appreciate all of you and I look forward to expanding The Schoolhouse with you!!

Blessed-New-YearI can’t believe that it’s already 2013.  Time sure is flying!!  I don’t like that it’s going by so fast, but I’m ready to see what’s ahead.

I want to thank each of my readers and those that follow along with The Schoolhouse.  I wish each of you a very Happy and Blessed New Year!!

New Year …. New Direction

I want to wish all my readers, followers, and those who use my printables, a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!  I hope that you have a blessed 2012.

With a new year comes new directions and some changes.  This is so true for me!!  It’s also true for my blog and the things that I create.  I will still continue to create and share my educational and Christian printables, but I’m adding to my portfolio.  I’m going to start to create printables for the home, party supplies, gifts, and items like those.  I feel that it’s time for my to broaden my horizons.  I don’t think that any of you will be disappointed by what I share and I think it will bring in a wider range of viewers to my blog.

My first new offering for the new year is a set of checkbook cover art.  This is a set of 4 different ones.  The checkbook cover art are inserted inside the clear plastic covers.  I’ve had one of these covers for years and my insert if wearing out and I’ve often wanted to change it out.  I measured them for the clear cover that I have, but some might vary slightly in size even though they’re pretty standard in size.  In that instance, I’d just trim off the borders to help them fit better.
