Five for Friday

It's that time of week again! It's time for Five for Friday!


If you haven't heard of this linky before you are seriously missing out! It's a lot of fun and all the info can be found over at Doodle Bugs Teaching. So basically we just share 5 things about this week! Fun, right? 


So, up first. It's my first week of Summer Holidays. Here in the UK we didn't break up until last Friday so the first week of our six week summer is over - boohoo! It's gone so quick. So naturally, I have been lounging around and spending some time with the kitty cats. My boyfriend is away tonight and tomorrow though so I am back at my parents for tonight! Spending some time with my family and the pooches..


Don't be fooled by how sweet and innocent they look though! 


I have been LOVING the MEGA bash that Krista over at Creative Clips has been throwing these past two days, and there should be more to come! Her clipart is amazing and is in most of my products, she's had some right bargains and freebies so be sure to check her out either on Facebook or on TpT.



So..now that I have some spare time on my hands I decided to go back through my older TpT resources and see how I could improve them. I actually CRINGED at some of the resources and their cover photos! So I have been busy working away updating some cover pages. It took a while - ok. Updating 215 resources and their covers has been tiring. I have updated all the covers, deleted some really naff resources that - let's be honest needing deleting and complete overhauling, and now I am currently working my way through updating the resources content with lots of fab new clipart.
What do you think of some of the cover updates? This one is my favourite...


While I was in this little creative mood I also made a few new adjustments..


I got this idea off Step into 2nd Grade.

Then I decided to mix it up and add it to my Credits and TOU pages..


As they say, there is no rest for the wicked!





I'm also currently trying to think up some new milestone celebrations for my lovely TpT followers. I recently reached over 300 followers, I'm over the moon.If you'd asked me back in January - when I first started putting the effort in - that it would be going this well I would never have believed you! I hope to continue to expand, progress and one day be able to do this full time! We shall see!




Last, but certainly not least I have been spending a bit of time emptying my poor wardrobe. However, I should really be saying my poor bank card. Last weekend we went to Next - AT 5AM! For their sale. I spent a fortune. But I have a fabulous new wardrobe full of lovely clothes! As you can see, I had lots of new lovely clothes...



That's all for me this week!!

Those pups are cute, but I can totally understand that looks can be deceiving! :-) I hope you're able to enjoy your summer vacation as much as possible to rest up and recharge for the next school year!

  2. Hi Nikki, you are right the new cover looks fabulous! It's so funny to go back to old products and see the old covers! I feel overwhelmed because I want to change them all! I guess little by little...
    Since you just started your summer vacation, I hope you enjoy every minute of your well deserved time off!

    1. Thanks! I love the new look of our covers although doing over 200 of them was very tiring! I won't be doing that again in a hurry I don't think! Thank you, my first week is over and it's gone so quick! Hope you're having a great Summer.
