You may remember that at the beginning of the year I was asked to be a part of The Family School team (scroll down and you will see me at the bottom).
They asked me to help in handout design.
That means I get to do a lot of drawing!!!

I was tasked to help redo 2 years worth of handouts.
That is over 2000 pages of drawing, organizing and creating.
I have stacks and stacks of sketches.

After about 6 months of what felt like non-stop work,
I can finally say that we are done.
With that project...

That was intense.

Have you missed me?
I've missed this.

Well guess what?
Now I can start paying attention to this blog and Teachers Pay Teachers!

You will notice that I have already added some new frames to my shop.

I use these all the time.
I love to print out a bunch of them and use them for journaling.

I also use them to frame important words or saying in my Family School handouts.

I hope you like them!

Here is a free frame for you.

Terms of Use:
My free clipart is just that "free".  You are free to use it for personal and commercial use (obviously you can't sell my actual image..).  If you do use it for commercial use, such as your TPT products, it would be wonderful if you gave me the credit for the image and help me spread the word about my store!  Thank you!


  1. 2000 pages of drawings!! Wowzer-dowzer!! I knew your hand was moving a million miles an hour (you wish it could go that fast), but 2000 pages????? That is amazing! And from the peek you showed, those students at Family School are sure lucky! Welcome back to TPT and the blog. I am extremely excited about your new package of frames. I use your frames and borders all the time for many things. This pack will add a lot of versatility for sure. Thanks for the freebie and for sharing how you use them. I am going straight to TPT to buy that pack. As always, I LOVE your colors and fun style. Hoping to see a lot more soon!

  2. Congratulations on finishing that huge project! I bet you are so happy to be done. The drawings look awesome!

  3. Congratulations!!! 2,000 pages???!!! GREAT BALLS OF FIRE!!!! Has your hand fallen off yet? Do you have to ice it every night? So will there be more projects coming up? You realize now that you'll go down in history? Families across the country will be growing and learning for years using what YOU created. That's quite an accomplishment. Pat yourself on the back big time, sweetie. (Whereas I've only created junk mail for 23 years. That's just a little pat. Or maybe a kick :) ! ) Congrats again. And lots of love.
