You guys are the best!

It's been a rough couple of weeks here on my end and, quite honestly, it's going to be a rough year for me.  Despite the hardships of my job, I come home to great blog comments and inspirational emails from my followers and readers and these just make me so HAPPY!  I'm completely honest when I say that this is what's keeping me going right now. I get major warm fuzzies! :)  Jordon over at Life is Better Messy nominated me for The Versatile Blogger award and Kel over at On the Brink of Something Beautiful even gave my blog a shout out!  You guys help to make the world a better place--thank you!
Onto the responsibility portion of the award....

7 Little Known Facts About Me  
( you...maybe not people who know me in real life...)

1. Despite my blog title, I actually gave up coffee this year.  I miss it like WOAH!  I drank coffee every day for over 10 years.  (I know--that's crazy.  But this explains why I'm short....)

2. I'm a vegan!

3.  People seem to think I'm really organized and on top of things.  In reality, I almost always feel frazzled and disorganized.  My secret?  I'm good at tucking piles away... ;)

4. I love to create things.  I'm seriously looking into side jobs that help me to harness my creative nature more.  I love to bake, cook, draw, write, and make anything really.  I want to publish a children's book before I'm 35!

5. I have the best nephew in the world and I miss my family terribly!  I stayed in the area after college and I am 2 1/2 hours away from them.  I have a HUGE family and I'd love to be able to see them more than I do now!

6. I pretty much live on peanut butter, roasted garlic hummus, and pita bread these days.

7.  I love that moment when you first get into a warm car--no matter how hot it is.  Sunny trips alone in the car are great too--with me singing off-key at the top of my lungs, of course.  I never sing in front of people but my rear view mirror gets quite the show. :) 

So I'll pass on my award in a future post, but in the meantime, because of my Warm Fuzzies, check out my TPT store and Teacher's Notebook store--where all of my items are 20% off until Friday! Just my little bit of payback to you other great individuals out there!


  1. Hi Janis,
    I'm so sorry you're having a rough start to the school year. I hope it gets better for you!
    I wanted to let you know that I ordered your Dots calendar at the beginning of September from Teacher's Notebook and, for some reason, am missing May and June. Do I need to reorder? Also, do you have a "To Copy" label in your cute "Monday-Friday" style labels (the same ones as "To file," "To grade," etc.)? I'd definitely buy it. :) Thanks so much for getting back to me:


  2. Ashley--I remember you commenting on this some time ago! I did fix the file and you should be able to redownload it for no charge. Just go into your "sales" and redownload! As for the drawers...I'll see what I can get to! I think I still have your email address!

  3. That's so strange--I tried to download it again and those two months are still missing. Not sure what's going on...
