Hoppy Sharings!

Sorry I've been MIA for a bit. Between having a newborn and the whole issue of my last blog, just made me take a break. I actually debated removing my blog all together. Some anonymous friend alerted DJ Inkers that I was not following their copyright. I honestly had no idea that I was not following the proper protocol. I have been using their clipart for a very loooooong time...my first set from them wasn't even on a CD, it was a hard floppy, can you imagine? Anywho, I didn't keep up with the policy changes, and I should have. It was an honest mistake.  Well, it has all been cleared with DJ Inkers, so to my anonymous friend out there...you don't need to worry about it anymore. I have made arrangements with the company personally and specific guidelines have been established for my blog. I truly appreciate DJ Inkers working with me, and I am extremely appreciative. I am happy to say that my blog will be staying up.

I need to get back into the swing of school things, my maternity leave is quickly nearing its end; however, I haven't created anything lately. With one of all time favorite holidays approaching (how could it not be, with a name like Shannon?), and the lack of new things to SHARE, I thought I would give any of my followers the opportunity to showcase their St. Patrick's day shares. Any follower who has a St. Patrick's day printable that would like it showcased can comment with the link to their blog/activity or can email (smorss99@gmail.com) me the pdf and I will put it up as a link to Scribd. I will put up the showcase on Friday, so all comments and emails must be in by Thursday.

And, because I just can't resist his little face. Here's a little Coop for you!

Thanks so much for reading!
Shannon

  8. Hi Shannon,
    I'm so glad you are not getting rid of your blog. You are amazing! I owe so much to you and your willingness to share. It looks like Cooper is cheering you on, he probably already knows what a great teacher his mommy is!

  10. Shannon,

    First of all, your new little boy is darling. A good friend of mine just had a baby and named him Cooper, as well. :)

    Second, whoever that was needs to get a life. That is all I will say about that.

    Your friend @ CoffeyHouse- Megan

  17. Shannon,
    I'm so glad that you are keeping your blog up. I love that you openly share--I'm all of supporting on TPT, but as a blog stalker, I also love freebies. Thanks for all of your inspiration. I might even send you something by Thursday! Best of luck with going back to work and leaving your cutie pie!

    All the best,
    Raelene

  18. Shannon, I'm so glad you kept your blog. I can't believe that someone would be so mean to try and get you into trouble. Your blog inspired me to write my blog and to follow your example of creating activities to share instead of selling them.

    Coop is lovely and he will settle down when he's ready.

    Enjoy the rest of your maternity leave. It goes by so fast.

  20. Shannon, I don't have time to follow a lot of blogs (and certainly not write one myself), but yours is at the top of my list. Thank you for everything you do for us all. I'm glad you're sticking around. Enjoy that precious baby boy. He is adorable.

  22. Thank you for continuing to share your ideas on your blog. I've learned so much from you. Thank you so much!!

  23. I am glad you are keeping your blog! I can't believe someone who reads (and persumably uses your ideas and printables) would report you. People can be so mean spirited when cloaked with the anonymity the internet provides.

    Thank you for all you do. You have certainly given me many ideas as I adjusted to a kindergarten position.

    Enjoy the last few days of your leave--it really does go by fast! :)

  34. Happy Leap Year, Shannon!! SO glad your blog is staying up! I've spent hours and hours downloading your incredible activities because I was afraid your site was going to disappear.

    I am trying to continue your passion for sharing by SHARING what I download from your site with my team at work! They love it!

    Thank you for all of your thoughts, time, energy and creativity to make so many activities and for you willingness to share! You are making a difference in so many children's lives!
