TpT Seller Challenge: Dare to Dream {Week 2}

I’m back for Week 2 of the TpT Seller Challenge! This week the theme is Dare to Dream and we’re all sharing our dreams and goals we hope to accomplish through our TpT shops.

First off, I never thought I would earn much money when I put up my first couple of items. Then, those items kind of took off. I made more than enough to cover the Premium Seller fee two months in a row and figured I might as well jump in. From that point on I was hooked and so motivated to create goodies for myself and other teachers. It's been a struggle to balance family, teaching, blogging, and creating, but I’ve gained so much from the experience.

Here are my TpT dreams...

Fund my planner addiction 
I already had an office supply addiction, but it’s become worse since purchasing a Kikki.K planner. Oh my word, it’s terrible friends. I can not keep out of the office supply aisles of ANY store. I think my favorite is Marshalls because everything is always different. I have accumulated quite a collection of post-its, washi, paper clips, and notepads.

I’ve made so many connections through TpT and blogging. I love finding teachers who share my passion for teaching and creating. I’m still working on stepping out of my comfort zone and collaborating with other bloggers though. This is definitely a MAJOR goal of mine.

I’ve been fortunate to have the means to travel to many major U.S. cities, but would love to be able to travel abroad. My husband and I have had our eyes set on seeing the sites of Ancient Greece. It is my ultimate dream to visit Pompeii, the city that was buried after the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. I was able to see replicas and artifacts from the site when visiting The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA last year. It was AMAZING, but I would love to see the real thing.
I’m very thankful for TpT and the doors it has already opened for me. But I’m hopeful that there is more to come. What are some of your dreams?
