TpT Week 2 Challenge - Dare to Dream

I'm excited to be part of this challenge.  Last week, I created a new cover for my Media Literacy Unit on Deconstructing and Constructing a Commercial.  This week I've been challenged to dream for my TpT business.  Here goes:

TpT has given our family many blessings.  I struggled for many years to find a full-time permanent job.  Timing and lack of connections set me back.  I worked contracts for several years and raised my family.  When my first job opened up, it was part-time.  I continued to work part-time because I knew I wanted to be as connected to my children as possible.  They are now pursuing their post-secondary education.  Expenses have added up.  My first dream is to help pay for tuition fees and out of town expenses.

My second one is to fix up areas of my home that need a facelift.  My kitchen and bathroom are on my to do list.

Lastly, I love being good to others.  That could mean spending quality time with friends and family, treating them to dinner or gift giving.  I love to see delight in people's faces when I make them something special.  I promised myself I would learn something new this year and I have.  I can create jewelry pieces and present them as gifts.  I was thrilled to give some to my colleagues at work who have accompanied me this year.  I had a rough ride with health concerns.  Whether they stopped by to see if I was ok, give me a hug or help with my clubs and coaching, I am forever grateful for them. Here's what the pieces look like:



  1. Those are some great goals. And those jewelery pieces are beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you! I thoroughly enjoy crafting these pieces.

  2. You should sell those on Etsy! Imagine what more you could do with that extra money! I loved reading about your generosity to others.
