Cookie Resources and World Thinking Day Certificates

I'm seeing Girl Scouts everywhere! It's cookie season and smiling Girl Scouts are out selling cookies at booth sales. My heart always soars when I see them, no matter what age and level they are. I hope all of you leaders and parents are surviving cookie season, as it can be a hectic one. Speaking of hectic, I'm sure you're wondering..."Jen, where are your cookie resources?" First, some advice: Backup your files, everyone. Recently I went on a digital organization spree and consolidated all of my resources onto backup flash drives, mainly to get the large files off of my work computer. I don't have the best luck with flash drives so I don't know what I was thinking. As a result, I lost, yes lost, every.single.resource.I've.ever.created. You heard that right. Every. Single. One. And although I haven't exhausted all of my options in recovering the data, I am glad that my resources are all up on Teachers Pay Teachers.

So not all is lost. I do have backup of my leader planner, which is definitely a good thing! However, my beautiful cookie resources, which were mostly done, are gone. I had uploaded three lanyards and a couple of door hangers (all ABC Bakery) to Teachers Pay Teachers before the crash. I also had some files that I recovered enough to recreate some and the ones from InDesign were intact all but linked files. So after piecing everything together, I uploaded all but one resource: the thank you cards. I may try to recreate those this week. You can see what I have in my TpT shop. I've decided I won't be listing the cookie resources on Etsy this year since it's so late. It's likely everyone is at the point of cookie sales where they have what they need. Nonetheless, the items are there to browse.

Good news is I was able to create two World Thinking Day Fun Patch certificates just in time for this year's WTD! I had so much fun creating these and I truly hope you love them and find them useful.

The new certs are available in the Etsy store and on Teachers Pay Teachers. If you haven't already done so, take a look at the store on TpT. All of my resources are there, even the free ones!!

Have a great cookie season everyone!

Contest Winner, "Rescued" Resources and a New Store

It's Almost 2019!

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest {if you're dying to know who won, scroll down}. I heart you guys so very much. If it wasn't for the comments, notes and reviews from you in the past several months, I would have thrown in the towel long ago. Thank you for all of your support in 2018. I look forward to many more adventures in 2019!

Have you ever come across an absolutely perfect item on Pinterest, only to discover the link is broken or even worse, it doesn't go to the stuff but another page altogether? When I was researching resources to use for the aMuse journey in a day, it was happening A LOT. Since I had a bit of web design and coding experience, I went on a scavenger hunt to find the items. Many of the resources were removed from sites, like the old When GS redid the page, they removed the visible links to the resources that live on in Pinterest. As a way to "save" these free resources, I decided to host the pdfs on my page so that they live on! Below is a sampling along with links. I hope you find them useful!


Congratulations to our Contest Winner!

Congratulations to Mary Roth! You are not only the winner of the contest, but I've decided to give away a copy of my leader planner! Check your email for your planner files.

Miss the Old Products?

Super happy to announce that some of the old favorites are back and you can now find both freebies and products for purchase on Teachers Pay Teachers. If you're not familiar with TPT, it's a site similar to Etsy where teachers sell lesson plans and classroom resources. I've gone back to TPT because I like the flexibility of having my freebies offered right alongside my for purchase items. I also love the option of having a cutie storefront with my colors.

The Store is Back Online! 

First, let me say thank you to everyone who reached out after my last email. The messages really buoyed my spirits and gave me the drive to do the hours of work required to not only re-design but to re-list the products. As my way of saying thank you, I've decided to run a special offer and a contest!

Leader Planner Offer 

The first offer is for those of you who have purchased my planner. When I redesigned the planner, I made it *fillable* and added additional pages! This is something I had planned to do all along and I used the redesign as my chance. I'm giving away the new planner to anyone who purchased the planner in the past. All you have to do is the following:
  1. "LIKE" straw/Jen/berry on Facebook (new page!)
  2. Follow straw/Jen/berry on Twitter
  3. Follow straw/Jen/berry on Instagram
  4. Email me your etsy order # (from your planner order)
That's it! Once you complete the four steps I will email you the new planner. My gift to you for your support!


Ok, so for anyone who has not purchased a planner, there's a contest. Win $10 off the purchase of a planner when you do the following:
  1. Go to the strawJenberry Designs Facebook page and "like" it.
  2. Enter the contest here
The contest begins at midnight tonight. Thank you for your support!!

REMINDER to all Facebook followers

I'm phasing the iamgirlscouts Facebook page due to trademark concerns with GSUSA. Please head over and like the new page.
