Winter’s End Pre-K Educational Pack

Spring Beginning Hibernation Ending Pre-K Pack

Our newest Pre-K Educational Pack is now available for download. I’ve named it Winter’s End as it celebrates the end of Winter when snow can still be found on the ground but new shoots are starting to peak through.

It has themes of animals coming out of hibernating (like the Groundhog) and the birth of new animals like Sheep. It also brings in imagery of Imbolc with both the birth of lambs but also milk and milk products.

All images are created by myself specifically for this Pre-K Pack.

It includes 25 Pages of Pre-K Skill Activities. Skills include:
  • counting
  • pre-writing
  • word tracing
  • size recognition
  • sequencing
  • pattern determination
  • simple math
  • which is different
  • cutting practice

Quiet Weekend and Video Games

SimCity Beta ReviewOrders were a bit slower come this weekend so it gave me a much needed break. I worked on a custom patch order but I still have a lot more to do with it. They take a lot of work. I also took some time to just play some video games, including the new SimCity Beta that was available this weekend only.

Hubby actually asked me to write a review on it for his blog, Geeky Goth Gamer Dad which was posted yesterday. I also played a bit of my SIMS Medieval game Hubby got me for Yule. It is rare that I get time for video games often. I even went to sleep early on Friday and Saturday nights. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough for me to feel completely prepared for returning to school today.

I foresee a very long week ahead!

Hedgehog ClipartUpcoming: the next Pre-K Pack titled Winter’s End will be available on Wednesday.

Crafty Bees: Tissue Paper Valentine Candles with Kids

Treegold and Beegold: Tissue Paper Valentine's Day Candles Children's Craft


I’ve made a decision to bring Crafty Bees back to Treegold and Beegold. In my struggle to ensure I am generating the best content for this blog it’s tough when I felt I was dividing my attention elsewhere.

I was forgetting my primary focus!

Today I have a craft the kids and I made. We created tissue candles for Valentines Day. I thought about making them at first for Imbolc but I could only think of putting sheep on the candles and that just didn’t seem right.

I’m Having a Love–Hate Relationship with Increased Success

A Pile of Orders Ready to Head Out
I’ll be honest with you all. Treegold and Beegold is doing fairly well in the sales department through all it’s venues. I haven’t reached my ultimate goals yet but we’re definitely on our way.

This brings upon its own challenges. One of those challenges is how I’m having to spend more time fulfilling orders. More time spent on filling orders means I have less time to create new things.

Yes, yes pull out the World’s Small Violin and play me a tune.

A Portion of My Idea List for Future Products

No it isn’t a catastrophe, it’s actually something wonderful but I'm itching to make something new. I have a huge list of ideas for future items. This list isn’t even the entirety of it but it lets you all see some of where I want to go.

Maybe I should ask all of you what you think my next focus should be.

Please take a quick moment to answer the poll below and help me out on my next style of project.

What Direction Should I go in Next for New Items

I have to use the available time I have wisely and honestly I’d like to do it best in the direction that all of you would like to see.

Me and Why I Blog : Grow Your Blog Party

A Goofy Tired Me
Today I've joined up with the very large Grow Your Blog Party so I want to go back an bit and not only introduce myself to the new visitors from the blog party but reintroduce m myself to my longtime followers.


I'm Velody and this is my site Treegold and Beegold. It's the hub of my online activity where you can find out about me and any links to follow me in other places

This is where I run my blog which focuses on crafts, parenting, and sharing information about my Etsy Shop. I write free craft tutorials, share free printables and I have just started creating free Educational Materials.

Quick Personal Introduction


There it is, me encapsulated as a list of labels. Of course everyone is so much more than their labels. How about it in short sentences now.

I’m a Geek married to a Video Game Blogger with 2 small children. Trained as an Environmental Engineer that is in the middle of a career change to become a Math or Science Teacher. While on the side Blogging and running a Handmade Business.

Why I Blog

The reasons I blog have changed through the years. It took 4 blogs before I found my niche. My first blogs were more personal and I initially had this struggle with sharing so intimately with an audience that had yet to become a community to me. I was sporadic in posting and often didn’t’ know what to write about.

I’m still have trepidations about sharing some personal information. IT is the internet! But I’ve found a groove with sharing my creations, interesting items online, tutorials, parenting and much more.
Over time I’ve begun to find a new community of bloggers too.

 I hope those of you visiting will join via Google Friend Connect, Email Subscription, or through RSS. Leave me a comment to let me know and a link to your own blog. I’ll make sure to stop by and follow back.

It’s looking like there are a huge number to visit!

Resin Pendant Tutorial Fail

I had planned to have a tutorial up today about making a simple floating flame resin pendant. Not all things go as planned though and I had a definite fail. I bought the wrong kind of resin.

I needed transparent resin and I picked up resin that dries white. You can see both my end result and the supplies in the photos.

I'm going to reorder some soon and then we can try this again. If I can pull it of I think it'll be pretty nice looking.

I don't show them often but I actually have a lot of mess ups behind the scenes. I keep on trying and learning though.

Anyone else want to share their most recent craft mistake?
