Time for a face lift!

This was me (left) nearly 30 years ago (it is hard to say that out loud) with one of my best friends from high school.


We laughed and cried over boys, got into a LOT mischief, and were in each other's weddings.   Well, last weekend she brought her family to Missouri for a visit.  My son and her twins were connected at the hip while they went zip lining and canoeing!

Now I sat down today to finish my product face lift... did you think otherwise?

For the "trace" section, I have added more room to write.
 I have also added more room to write on the "write" section.
I have updated all of my Read, Trace, Glue, and Draw sets and added an additional set to each of these bundles, so you can get it at no additional charge.  Just go to "My Purchases" to get the upgrade.

We are having thunderstorms here tonight... why do I love them?

  1. I really like how you updated these. I will have to check them out. Oh and to make you feel better High School was a tad more than 30 years ago for me. I am glad you had a fun time.

    1. My friend and I were just saying how it does not seem like it was that long ago!

  2. I really, really like the updated one. High school was almost 50 years ago for me -- how is THAT possible?? Anyway, since next year will be my last year before retirement, I though that surely I would be able to get thru this one year without buying anything. But then I see something like this on TPT...

    1. Preach it Carolyn! Why do men seem to look better with age and I just look tired! Ha!

  4. Are you on Summer Break? If so, you're probably loving thunderstorms because they don't mean indoor recess!! :) I am not feeling the same way toward the storms that are rolling through by me today... :)

    Love your updated products!!

  6. Hi Deedee,

    This was my first visit to you blog. I love thunderstorms too as long as I am home with the family. I teach preschool and a thunderstorm at school means no recess and sometimes a few tears!

    1. I could not agree with you more. Those littles have a hard time.

      When my son is out during a storm, I tend to pace the room.

      Welcome to my blog!

  7. Hi Deedee,
    I love the updates. It looks like the kids will do a better job with the larger spaces. I also wanted to tell you that I purchased yours and Deanna's writing through the year packs 1 and 2. I LOVE them and posted about them. I can't wait for unit 8 and the final bundle!

  8. As if these packets were not great to begin with, but I love the extra room now! My great writers were able to keep it on one line, but my large writers had a very hard time! I can't wait to use these next year!!! I love ALL of your products and I am so glad I have found TPT. My teammates tease me and tell me I need to be in a TPTA group :)

    1. I'm glad you will feel more confident using them with your whole group. This was my VERY first item I made for TpT about 3 years ago. I thought it was time to freshen them up!

  9. I love the face lift! They look even better! You look the same as in HS. Don't need your own face lift. :)
