TpT Seller's Challenge: Week 2 - Dare to Dream...


For the TpT Seller's Challenge this week, we were asked to share our dreams!  We reflected on what we hoped to do with our TpT successes as they come.  Here were my top four:

1. Help my Family: Family is important to me.  I grew up with a lot of my family living near me, and so we did many things together.  We didn't have a lot, but somehow we always made the best, and I know sacrifices were made.   I know that my family has done so much for me over the years, and I hope that I will be able to help them when they need it!

2. Travel: I've gotten a head start on this one. I've been to Costa Rica, Spain, St. Thomas and the British Virgin Islands, England, Italy, Peru, and Chile is coming up this year!  However, there are still many places to, much to learn about other cultures/history, and many beautiful places and animals to see as well!  One of my dreams is go to go the Galapagos Islands and to Antarctica!

3. Create:  TpT has given me a creative outlet, and the more I sell on TpT, the more I am driven to create!  I am blessed to have the opportunity to sell on TpT while nurturing my creativity.  I also love to draw and hope to be able to make my own clip art soon.

4. Volunteer:  One day, I hope to be able to volunteer on a trip, like at Tambopata Research Center.  I visited this special place (in Peru) two years ago and since I love science and birds, this would be a great place to spend a couple weeks volunteering.  Maybe one day when my travels wind down I can even have my own bird rescue!

Thanks for listening to some of my dreams, I have had a great time reading over other fellow sellers' dreams for the future!

Cheers!

TpT Seller Challenge!

Woo!  It is summer, and time to "revamp" as things are slowing down.  So, what better way to keep yourself accountable as a TpT seller than to participate in a challenge?  The TpT Seller Challenge to be exact!

Week 1 is winding down right now and the challenge was to find an older product that needed a little TLC.  So, I chose my American Revolution ABC Book Project.  I love this project so much, but felt that it needed a cover, a preview, and a little retouching of design for the rubrics and info sheets.  Here is a brief look at the difference!


I personally feel that it stands out more, and is a lot more attractive to the eye.  Giving this great project a breath of fresh air felt great and I'm going to continue doing so with my products this summer.

If you sell on TpT, I encourage you to jump on the TpT Seller Challenge train and have some fun and grow with us!

Cheers!
