Five for Friday- 4th March 2016

We are excited to join Doodle Bugs Teaching for another Five for Friday linky party!

We have been truly spoilt this week; we've taken annual leave together this week & next (in our jobs we get a set number of days we can take whenever we choose, rather than being fixed to school holidays) and we've had a really productive & creative week!  Here's what we've been up to...

On Saturday & Sunday last week, we had some lovely family time, celebrating birthdays! It was very fun- lots of laughs & birthday cake!  My mum & I then decorated some table decorations for our wedding (we shared about them on Instagram).  We are super pleased with how they've come out!

Creativity has been in full flow this week, so I think this saying is definitely true!
We have created & uploaded three new products this week (check them out here, here and here), we've uploaded a new growing bundle of prepositions books, which you can check out here and we have planned & started many more!  We love being on holiday together because we bounce ideas off each other so often, that we have to write everything down or we'll forget it all!  We love being creative & love that TeachersPayTeachers gives us a great reason to do it! :)

On Thursday 3rd March 2016 it was World Book Day.  We have such fond memories of this as kids that we couldn't resist getting involved in some way this year, even though we weren't at work!  We created our first ever Book Companion!! We posted about it here and offered it as a freebie for the first 24 hours! Over 100 people downloaded it in that time, we were thrilled at that!!  It's now on sale in our Teachers Pay Teachers store, and you can grab it here.  It's all no prep & can be used alongside the book.  We love the story of Elmer & hope you all love the product too!

We have spruced up our TpT Store!! It's something we had intended to do for ages, but we just didn't have time to do it.  We used this awesome post by Ms. Fultz's Corner to help us out and we are quite pleased with how it looks now! 

We've also updated the 'About Us' in the side bar on our blog ---------->>
and we've updated our logo on TpT & Facebook- the logo is still the same, but we've added our little avatars too! :)

We've reached a bit of a milestone this week too; we've reached 300 followers on Instagram! We feel so blessed that so many of you like to keep up with what we're up to! We've hosted a giveaway for Instagram followers only and there's still time for you to enter over on our Instagram feed!  Head over there now to enter! :)
Please note this giveaway is in no way associated with or endorsed by Instagram or it's creators.

We're also really close to reaching 500 followers on TpT; once we reach that, we're going to send out a follower only freebie via TpT-  something we're thinking of doing every few months! So if you don't already, why not go and follow our TpT store too!?

So that's our week in a nutshell!  This weekend it's Mother's Day here in the UK; we are hoping to go spend some time with our parents and families again, while we then prepare for another week off! 

What have you all been up to this week and what do you have planned?  We'd love to know; comment below!
