Yesterday, I had the opportunity to get caught up on some amazing teaching blogs!  It's unbelievable how much talent is showcased out there.  And I'm so excited that the upper grades seem to be catching up with the enormous amount of primary grade teacher bloggers out there!!

This weekend, I'm glad to have become a new follower of these creative minds:
 
Hop on over and see for yourself, maybe you'll be able to discover a new blog to stalk! :)

Also, I am on the search for cute doodle frames and border clipart.  I discovered an Etsy seller named printcandee, whom I now know many TpT sellers already use.  Yet, if you're new to this whole scene like me - I recommend printcandee, especially since she has a Buy 2, Get 2 Free sale going on now!!
Here's one of the packs I ordered:

Today, "someone new" comes from Washington, and has been blogging since the end of September 2012.  The blogger that I'm introducing to y'all is someone after my own heart, Stephanie Ann over at Sparkling In Third is sharing a gift card to go SHOPPING at Nordstrom's!
