I thought it would be fun to share our family's book list of living books that we have read and ones that are currently reading together. Living books are wonderful novels that bring a topic to life with fascinating characters and subjects and peek the curiosity of the reader. I'll update this post with each new book that we start or that we are adding to our home library. My children enjoy reading independently and enjoy comics and humorous books and I wanted to expose them to classical and beautiful stories by read a loud together. I think it's very important to allow our children to choose their own books to read as I'm sure this will help them enjoy reading. Please share any of your favorite living books by commenting below!

Have Fun Drawing!
Hi Everyone! It has been awhile since my latest post. I have been taking this summer to really create products and I am having a blast. I truly enjoy creating resources that encourages drawing and art. It has been a joy. This month has been my best month in producing resources as well as sales at my TPT shop. Who would've thought that this is where my art endeavor took me!
I homeschool my children and we started the school year in the beginning of August. I wanted a head start for us to catch up and review some of last year's curriculum. My goal for this school year is to start incorporating some of my own art resources in our learning as I think they are old enough. I encourage each of you to find ways to add art to all subjects as I think children naturally gravitate to creating art. It engages them and truly build up their confidence.
With this said check out my Back to School Artist Pack and have a blessed year!
This is an engaging summer theme roll and draw game bundle that is simple to use and with no-prep. My roll and draw games are interactive drawing games that will result in unique drawings for spring fun or throughout the year. Use each game sheet multiple times! Just grab a dice, blank paper, pencil and coloring tools and simply engage your students with this self-directed drawing activity. You can get the whole class involved by following the Change It Up worksheet and dictating elements that students can add to their drawing. Then color! Fun for all ages! Find this set at my teachers pay teachers shop.
I have so many ideas for these multiple uses roll and draw game sheet so stay tune!

I am excited to introduce a new drawing product line, Think INSIDE the Box drawing prompts, that is inspired by my popular Think OUTSIDE the Box drawing prompts. I had a lot of fun creating these prompts and I wanted to come up with something that was a little bit easier for those that find the Think Outside the Box prompts difficult. Therefore, this is a slightly different version from the Think Outside the Box prompts and students will be drawing what is suggested in the drawing prompts. Stay tune for more variations to these drawing prompts and have a creative day!
Here is a fun way to introduce learning the alphabets with drawing that is good for early learners and grade K students. There are 21 pages in a PDF file. The first three pages start your students off with designing their own alphabets, whether they are focusing on the letter or what starts with each letter. The rest of the pages include flash cards in color and black/white. A great value!

Hi there, I hope your spring season has been one filled with taking the time to listen to the birds, appreciating the green in nature and enjoying/smelling the flowers. Whether you are in the city or county, I hope that you enjoy these natural inspirations.
Today was a tough homeschooling day, I wasn't sure what direction to take in regards to my children's homeschooling curriculum and felt overwhelmed by all the "great" resources out there and I honestly don't remember how I ended on Easy Peasy Homeschooling website (but I am very grateful to have ended up there). It is rich with resources and I am looking forward to reading more about it and using the available curriculum for my future homeschooling days. I hope you check it out and it becomes a resource that will encourage you on your homeschooling journey.
Hi everyone, March has been a recovery month from the flu and personal health issues. But I'm grateful to Jesus for this time of recovery as it has helped me to reset some of my priorities in art and life. For the TpT goals I won't meet (silly holiday activities for each month), I'm bummed but feel hopeful new ideas will develop during my break from my online and computer work. Time to march onward and until fingers meet keys . . . I hope you have a creative and restful day!
Hey there! I hope your summer has been fun with family and friends. I'm excited to share a new Homeschool Category for those parents that are interested or already committed to homeschooling. My goal is to share tips, books, activities, links and ideas that I've learned along this new journey of homeschooling. I'm a newbie to this journey and have so much to learn but hope to share any tips along the way that has been helpful. I can tell you that there are times when it's difficult (where I want to throw in the towel) and times when it's fun. When I am challenged, overwhelmed and scared, I try to remind myself the why's of why we have chosen this path for our children's education and I also read (online) experiences of veteran homeschoolers if I am not able to connect with the homeschooling moms I know and are meeting.
We are fortunate to live during a time where information is available even though all the available information can be daunting. Therefore, I hope that the information that I share with you will help to encourage you along your own journey. Also, the activities and art resources that I've created are great to use during your own home education day if you're interested in creative art activities and printables. Just remember that your choices will be what's best for your children/family and try to lean on God during those difficult days of resistance, challenging attitudes and tears (sometimes mom tears and not just the kids:-/). The one thing I've learned so far during those difficult periods of educating my children, is that in my weaknesses, God equips me and teaches me to let go of perfectionism and trust Him to guide me. Still working on this...with this said, hope you will find a good rhythm to your home education.
I am excited to share this bright and colorful book in PDF format, that will help your elementary students recognize letters and art terms. There are crisp examples and some interactive activities in this book. Use as an aid for art term discussions and thought. Easily print it out from your computer, place in sheet protectors and a 3-ring binder for on the go lessons. Have fun!
