Celebrate#6 & Five for Friday#2

I'm joining in with two of my favourite linkys this week!


As always, the little number cards I created can be used by anyone for their little projects :)


 I have FIVE different Valentine products in my TpT store and four of these are freebies! 
This one is very popular because it can be used in lots of different ways and the children - both boys and girls - like the cute creature it makes :)  Just click on it to be taken to the Valentine products in my store.  
I'd love it if feedback could be left and I will post feedback on a freebie in your store by return!



I have signed up for the 2016 Challenge!  This will be my third year and I love that I get to be involved with others who are NOT in teaching.  It makes a change and I get a much wider perspective on the world.  Don't get me wrong, there are other teachers and educators doing it too and I love reading their blog posts and some have become good blogger friends but it is nice to see beyond the school playground too.  If you want to find out more just click on the button above to be taken to their blog :)


More crafts have been made for the mental health charity Mind and delivered to their shop - my crafting buddies have been super generous with their time.  If I hadn't managed to leave my phone in Yorkshire I would have taken a photo of the shop window display - it looks awesome!  Instead you can see two of my made and donated items :)


And finally for Five for Friday - a Valentine Freebie!
I was inspired by the creative talents of

Let me know what you think?

Now let's move on to:
This week, Lexa has pulled out all the stops and you will certainly have a smile on your face or even a fit of giggles if you stop by and take a look!

This week I am celebrating:

1) Having gone up to Yorkshire to visit my parents for an overnight stay.

2) Finishing the knitting part of the windcheater for my Dad - I just need to sew it all up now!

3) Receiving news that I will get funding for ALL of my Nordic Walking  Instructor course - yipee!!
I want to be able to deliver free Nordic Walking sessions to older people in the community but the cost of the instructor course is £500 so I have been trying to find some help with funding so a big hooray this week :)

I'd love to know what you've all been up to and has anything amazing happened that you're really excited about?
Have a great weekend :)

    1. Yes I'm so pleased to be given the funding so I can book myself on a course and get on with it instead of dreaming about it!
