Back from Barcelona and ready!

Thank you Doodle Bugs for hosting the super fun Five for Friday! It took me a while to get back in action after spending 20 wonderful days in Barcelona, but I'm back!! (don't have a starts very soon!)
If you are new to "Five for Friday" and would like to be part of this fun weekly link, just click on this picture to learn more about it! It is a really wonderful way to see what everybody is up to! Can't wait to read your posts!!


 This week I've been trying to go through all the 500 and something pictures we took in Barcelona to discard the ones that are not so good and keep the ones we like. That made me wish to go back! It was such a fantastic experience...everything was so perfect, the culture, the FOOD, the city, the people, even the weather! It really is a very unique place where you have the Mediterranean beach on one side,and the mountains on the other, get a little bit of everything.

Although these pics are not doing justice to what the place really is, at least you can have an idea.

The Sagrada Familia, one of the most visited monuments in the world. This neo-Gothic church was started in 1882, and they are still working on it. They say it will be finished by 2020.

One of my favorites, the Camp Nou,(FC Barcelona) one of the richest sport clubs in the world.

This is me inside Camp Nou!

It looks like paradise, but it's Costa Brava, this view its' from the boat.

This is Villa Vella, a fishing village from the 12th century in Costa Brava.

Tibidabo Amusement park at the very top of the mountain, at 2,000 feet!

At the top of Tibidabo mountain it is the Basilica Del Sagrat Cor De Jesus. We were actually able to climb the stairs all the way up to top were Jesus is.

Montserrat Sanctuary also, at the top of a mountain in Montserrat. Unbelievable views!

 I've been also trying to give a little face lift to some of my products in TpT, and this is one of my freebies that was asking badly for an update, with school starting soon. This is the new look, for the Jitter Glitter. Stop by my store to download this for free!

Another product that needed a little touch was my brochure for :Meet Your Teacher Night". So, while I was trying to make it a little prettier, I also added a version in black & white, so you can print it on color paper. This is how it looks now:

This week I added another FREEBIE to the collection, perfect for the first day of school. You are welcome to stop by my store to download your copy:

My cover for the communication folders needed a change as well...I wanted something to match the clouds and birds in my classroom, so this is what I came up with: If you would like to use it, it's editable and FREE and you can find it in my store, just click on the image.

I finally made my mind and decided to buy an HP Printer so I can sign up for the Instant Ink program. Thanks to one of my colleagues, I found out that there is a special promotion going on, and when you first sign up, they give you 3 months for free. TREE MONTHS OF FREE INK! This is the prefect time as ever, with all the printing we have to get done in preparation of the new school year: introductory packages, flyers, brochures, labels, center activities, etc...I ordered my printer through Amazon, and i should receive it tomorrow, so I will let you know how the process goes.

These were my five, and I thank you for stopping by and reading! Have a marvelous weekend!


  1. My daughter's favorite European city is Barcelona. She loves it as much as you do so I hope I get to see it one day. And we got a new HP printer just so we could sign up for the ink program. We haven't set it up yet because we're waiting to use up the ink in our old printer... with the freebie deal though, maybe we shouldn't wait! Thanks for post. Nice to find you.

    1. Barcelona should definitely be in everyone's bucket list! It is truly an amazing place! I like making older products look refreshed, although is very time consuming! You too, have a very successful school year! Thank you for reading and commenting!

  4. Hi, probably our entry may be off topic but anyways, I have been surfing around your blog and it looks very professional. It’s obvious you know your topic and you appear fervent about it. I’m developing a fresh blog plus I’m struggling to make it look good, as well as offer the best quality content. I have learned much at your web site and also I anticipate alot more articles and will be coming back soon. Thanks you.
