Teachers Pay Teachers Announcement

As many of you know, I've been marketing my clipart, project books and kid's crafting publications through a storefront I opened with the Teachers Pay Teachers online community shortly after closing my Downloadable Designs Store several years ago.  This week I made the announcement that my TPT Storefront will be closing on December 30, 2016 when my current contract expires.

Working with the Teachers Pay Teachers community has been an absolutely delightful experience and the professionals I have met through this site are nothing short of amazing.  For those members (or those who may be thinking about joining), I thought I'd share the announcement here just in case you missed it earlier this week to give you a little time to download those items you may have on your wish list.

Here's the official announcement:

"On December 30, 2016, my TPT Storefront will be closing as I continue to create my line art patterns and clipart images for published paperback and .pdf publications and children's storybook illustrations which I sell through my Book Store website at as well as for commercial greeting cards and merchandise which can be found on my home website at

As much as I have loved working within the TPT community, I've been finding it more and more difficult to stay focused specifically on clipart sets while trying to produce all the artwork needed to illustrate my book publications.  I literally produce hundreds of images for each of my published book titles and since all of my work is created digitally by hand from the sketches to the lineart to the color format, time just doesn't allow for me to produce all the new art I had originally planned to release as clipart sets exclusively here at TPT.  My art has always been my passion and over the 30 years I have been designing, I have prided myself on originality, quality of workmanship and reasonable prices for my customers.  So many of you have taken the time to send your positive feedback, shared the response you've received from your classroom projects and simply let me know how much my work has been appreciated and by doing so, encouraged me to keep moving forward with my ventures. 

Please accept my sincerest thanks, deepest gratitude and heartfelt wishes for a Wonderful Holiday Season!"

One of my favorite Holiday characters (and believe me, it's VERY hard to choose!) happens to be Holiday Snow Bears.  This week I'll be working on some adorable Bear ornaments for the tree and creating sectional HollyDay Express magnetized train pieces so that my granddaughter can assemble and reassemble the pieces as she wishes on the refrigerator door!

Find Annie Lang's Snow Bears and Moppets Book HERE:'s a 7 piece train car pattern set along with bears for you to trace, transfer and create with any medium or colors that you please.  I painted a train around a band box I filled with ornaments and gave to a friend one year as a most unique holiday gift!  The Train Set and Holiday Bears can be found in the paperback or downloadable .pdf (currently on Sale!) book versions of Snow Bears and Moppets.
If you don't have time to trace and transfer designs, you can print and craft a train of Snow Bears or Gingerbread using pages from the downloadable .PDF version of (currently on sale) Paper Clip Christmas
