Updated Brownie Trackers Now Available!

As with the Daisy Tracker, I recreated the old tracker too. Looking forward to how easy these will be to update in the future, which wasn't true with the older version. There are fillable pdf and non-fillable pdf versions available--the fillable version takes the place of the old Word version. I'm working on the Junior trackers next!

Old Style Tracker

The above "older style" tracker is available in the archives.


New Style Tracker

The grid-style tracker is also updated with all the new badges. FYI this tracker is not fillable. They are a manual form to print and fill in by hand. It can be downloaded on the Freebies page.

Daisy Trackers are Done!

And by done, I mean all RE-DONE and pretty! I took the time to recreate the old tracker. I couldn't give up on them and I'm super happy with the updated *polish* they got. It makes them easier to update in the future, which wasn't an option with the older version. There are fillable pdf and non-fillable pdf versions available--the fillable version takes the place of the old Word version. I'm working on the Brownie trackers next!

That’s just a few cents over $32. Any additional dollars raised will be used to offset the time and resources needed to keep the trackers free and enable me to keep updating the older trackers. In the almost 10 years that I've been doing this, I've never asked for donations. Freebies were how I got my start, in sharing what I created for my own troop with you. Over the years the passion has evolved into a business for me, a way to augment my income while I raise my kids. I pay for web hosting, domain registration, Etsy and TpT fees as well as database fees out of my product profit. I also work more than full-time as a graphic designer in the non-profit sector. The past two years I've contemplated making the old Word/PDF trackers obsolete because they are difficult and time-consuming to update and I get super busy with planner sales and custom orders.  

But with your help, I will update the new and the old trackers with the 42 new badges so that you can continue to use them. And they will remain free!

So if you are able, please make a donation. Even $1-2 helps not only offset the cost of the digital purchases, but also allows me to dedicate more time to working on freebies. 

I can’t wait to get started! I appreciate it so much and plan to continue creating useful resources for leaders in the years to come.  Thank you in advance for your support.

XOXO

Troop Buttons for Everything!

Buttons, Buttons, Whose Got the Buttons?

Sometimes I create graphics for clients, sometimes out of necessity and usefulness, but sometimes I design for FUN. And these are fun. I've created several buttons to completion and have quite a few still in draft form. At first, I figured they would make cute Facebook cover photos. Then I made matching cover photos to go with them. But I love them so much that I can see them being a troop logo or t-shirt design too! The sky is the limit. If you want a hot air balloon, an animal or symbol, activity, etc. you can choose your personalization details. Since they are fully personalizable, you can only find them on Etsy, not on Tpt.

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!
