A few years ago, I was about as close as you can get to getting a book published by an actual publisher. *thisclose* But, it didn't happen. I sulked about it for awhile before I went the self-publishing route. I went through iBooks for my hit, "Your Art Room's A Mess" and went with TeachersPayTeachers for my colossal success "The Art Teacher's Substitute Notebook."
It sounds like I'm being a sarcastic jerk - but one thing is true - TeachersPayTeachers paid for my Fluevogs. I joined in May of '13 and by May of '14, I earned enough to purchase some lovely Mini Zaza's on International Fluevog Day.

Now, on to my second year with TPT. I'm what they call a premium seller. I honestly still get super excited when I get the email that something has sold! Plus, I have every intention of adding new resources, and earning more money for "doing nothing". This year however, that *free* money will go towards two little girls dance lessons. Let's just say it's a lot more than a pair of Fluevogs. Just think, every time you purchase something off of TeachersPayTeachers, you could be helping make two little girls' dreams come true, or outfitting an art teacher with a ridiculously awesome pair of shoes.
