Check Out the TpT Sale plus A-Z Honours Part 1

I almost forgot to blog about the two day sale that's going on over at TpT!!
It's a great way to save money as well as stock up on all those brilliant teaching resources.
All of my store products are in the sale so if you want something at up to 28% less then hurray up as the sale ends today!!  Just click on the banner above to be taken to my store.

I also need to say a big thank you to "Floating Down the River" for the sale banner above - she is a music specialist so if you want any help in that department be sure to check her store out :)

Now onto the coveted badge of approval for those bloggers who thoroughly entertained, educated and encouraged me during the A to Z Challenge this year with their well written blogs and their propensity to comment back!  I visited so many blogs this Challenge that it would be impossible to list all those that I really found special just in one blog post so this will Part One.

I am doing this in no particular order but I would like to give a big


Courtney over at Maui Jungalow
for her very informative blog about life on a beautiful island in all its nitty gritty

Mars over at Curling Stones for Lego (how could I not resist the title?)
She introduced me to the marvelous & colourful world of beads

Lynda  at
who wrote a short story with a question for us as an audience to answer each day

Mark who had The View from the Olive Grove
A Brit far from home who reminded me of so many things from my childhood

Kat at a Writer's Musings
intrigued me with some of the things she missed (or otherwise) that are no longer in the American world and for me had never even existed!!

Katie as The CyborgMom 
introduced her new dog Emmie and gave a dog's perspective on the life around her and always gave out a good question you just felt compelled to comment upon!

Eileen at made me feel I was entering a sanctuary from the world - writing her tales about special objects in her home - a totally delicious blog :)

Paula over at
was another writer who shared and made you feel welcome any time you happened to drop in :)

Roslyn of Fangirl Stitches fame
made me feel completely lethargic given that not only was she blogging but stitching each day to complete an amazing piece for the end of the Challenge!!

Joanne introduced me to many places in Texas and regularly left comments on my posts

and finally for this post my two A to Z blogging buddies from last year who once again gave me a lot of support throughout this year's challenge whilst writing incredibly informative posts for their chosen themes
Author Yvonne -  with her productivity posts
and Click - for her very positive and insightful theme on infertility treatment

To all those on this list please feel free to display the button badge above on your blog and to pass it on to reward others that inspired you along the way of this year's challenge :)

Now I'm off to see what I might buy in the sale!
