Five For Friday: Busy, busy and a FREEBIE!

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs!
 This is a C-R-A-Z-Y week for me. I might actually be busier than during a normal school week.
 I'm running Camp Invention at my school this week and the kids are having a blast taking things apart, creating amazing inventions and learning amazing and cool stuff.

 My daughter got her braces off on Tuesday. She said she really didn't mind them, but now that they're off, she can't stop smiling.

I think I may have You Spoke Too Soon Syndrome (YSTSS) or maybe it's Foot In Mouth Disease. Just when I think everything is going great, I decide to open my big ol' mouth and say something that will jinx it all. Today I mentioned how much I just love being a director for Camp Invention. I get to do the fun activities, see former students get to shine with their creativity, give out scholarships to deserving families, and I don't have to worry about teaching! Right after that, all heck broke loose. Let's just say there was puke involved. Don't worry, I won't show you a picture.

My buddy (and fellow NM blogger) over at a Teaspoon of Teaching has a fun and fab linky idea for next week. It's called A Splash of Color. Each day there is a color and you get to upload pics of all things fun and fab in that color scheme. I can't wait! Check out Melissa Cloud's blog post for details. BTW, did I mention there's a giveaway?

I haven't had the time to do any creating this week, but I'm going to continue my summer Five for Friday tradition by offering one item from my store for free for 24 hours. I don't have anything new, but I'm going to do a pretty awesome product that my kiddos did at the end of the year instead of homework. It is the Flip Flap Book Report Project. Here's a pic of one of the finished results: 

Take a look at the preview page:

This is normally $5, but it's free today!

Have a great weekend everyone!
