If you don’t read anything else I write, PLEASE READ TODAY.  As teacher sellers, bloggers and givers, teachers need to be aware that the designers of the graphics we use all have different expectations, rules and terms of use.  It is only fair that we abide by their terms and we understand “what is” and “what is not” allowed.  So I contacted many fabulous artists and asked them every question under the sun! Poor girls.  They all were so kind to reply. I then created a chart of the questions and their answers and sent it to each artist for their approval.  So, I have received approval from all but one artist who I removed from the list. Besides, the designers I included not only made their terms clear but also have amazing graphics at reasonable prices! I love them all. These will be the only designers I will use.  
I also have some exciting news! 
Cheryl Seslar has JUST created a new Teachers Only License! 
The license is 49.99 and is a special use license for teachers and educators only. Once purchased you may use all her images to create teaching materials, newsletters, sheets, plans, and other teaching materials in a secure PDF or jpeg format to sell digitally from your own site, eBay, etsy, or any other teaching site that offers digital images for sale. So, you are NOT allowed to give them away for free, but can offer 1-2 freebies you have created with her images once a month. You may NOT use them for smartboards or any other format that the images are not secured. CREDIT MUST BE GIVEN TO WWW.CHERYLSESLARDESIGNS.COM OR [email protected]
Cheryl is so sweet she is offering a discount code for you all for 1 week only! So head on over and buy this license now.  Use coupon code teacher25 to receive 25% off!

You do NOT need Cheryl’s Seslar’s License to sell items made with her graphics purchased at Scrappin Doodles if you are selling from your own site.  Denyse at Scrappin Doodles already purchased a license for this purpose. You DO NEED  her Teachers Only License if you are selling on Teachers pay Teachers or Teacher’s Notebook.

In more exciting news! 
In addition, please check back tomorrow. Two artists have offered to do a giveaway on my little blog. 
I’ll tell you who tomorrow!
