New blog design and Mother's Day Craftivity

If you're over there in your Reader, and haven't been over HERE in a few days, you need to click through and come over now.  Don't worry, I'll wait......

I got a complete blog redesign and I L.O.V.E. love it!  While it's not typical of a teachery blog, it is very typical of me.  I'm a little bit obsessed in love with damask and so I was hoping to incorporate that in.  As you can see,  I was able to, and then some.  Apparently, I'm a little bit French on the inside!  :)  The wonderful ladies at Honey Bunch Blog Designs worked me with me and my uncertainty and undecisiveness to help me create a blog that's truly me.  If you are looking at getting a custom blog design, I would highly recommend them.  It was affordable and so much easier than I had ever dreamed!

Over the weekend, when I wasn't obsessively refreshing my blog to see the changes working with them on the blog design, I was in craftivity mode.  First, I made a space one that's used for the end of the year.  Then, I made a Mother's Day one.  My mother's day one is FREE (I know how you like that word) and is a cute little cupcake.  These can be used as a bulletin board, as all craftivities can, or you can just make them to send home for Mother's Day.
You can download the file directly from my blog by clicking on the picture.  (Thank you Kristen!)  It's also available in my TpT store and TN shop.

I'd love to get some feedback on these as I'm deciding if I want to keep working on different ideas I have in my head.  I'd also like to know what you think about being able to download the file here versus going to Google Docs or my stores.  Downloading it here means that link won't be in your Google Docs for future reference- I don't think.  So please leave me some comments letting me know what you think.

Till next time...
