    Have you guys seen all those cool teacher blogs, facebook pages, and TpT goodies? I'm always so impressed by how creative our colleagues can be, ya know? I mean some of these pages are beautifully done. And there's SO much cool information to gather! I always try to read FB pages, which lead to blogs, which leads to TpT pages - and hopefully free stuff and by the time I'm done, I look like this: :dizzy: Anyway, I thought, "Hey, I CAN DO THAT!" But really I can't. lol I'm trying though. I've started a blog and some of you may remember that I used to post threads here called, "Cup of Special Tea." So that's what I've named my blog. If you would be so kind to take a minute and check it out here, I would greatly appreciate it! I've even got some printable freebies I'll be posting on there, so help yourselves. I just started it a week or so ago so there's only three posts but it's slooooowly growing. I could use some followers, feedback, suggestions, etc.

    Thanks gang! :D

    I took a quick look and I like what I see. I don't have time to do more right now, but I've bookmarked it to go back to.

    I will recommend this to my Special Ed teacher friends and keep an eye on it for ideas of my own. Thanks!

    Hi Zoom, I just took a quick glance and it looks great! I would also love to learn how to make great looking resources. I would suggest looking into getting your Pinterest button and a lot of the teacher bloggers have started using Bloglovin. I'm not on google+, so I was unable to follow you.

    Thanks kb, and everyone for checking it out. I've added a Reading Center sign plus I'm putting Fred Jones tips on there as I re-read it. (Why isn't there just a bullet-point Fred Jones list anyway???) lol

    Good luck! I love teaching blogs, but I find sometimes when I look at them for too long I get discouraged and think, "My blog will never be like that! I can't make assignments that cute! I'm the worst" Sounds like you overcame those fears and went for it anyway. Good job.

    How DO people make those cute products anyway?

    I'll be reading :)

    :lol: I totally hear ya! I made the mistake of "liking" too many teacher's facebook pages and every day I get some new update about what HUGE BUNDLE they've got on sale at TpT. Makes me wonder what I'm doing with my days! So yeah, I'm about ready to "unlike" a few of them because it's just too much.

    As for the products - they're using digital clip art in programs like Adobe Photoshop or whatever and it takes a LOT of time to make these products. It took me over two hours yesterday to make one 100 chart in photoshop. There's GOT to be an easier way!
