As always, I hope this is helpful to somebody!

  1. You really ought to be selling these. You're obviously doing a lot of work to produce them...

  2. a) it's not THAT much work to throw a bunch of dreidels on a page...
    b) I can't find many good printables, so if I don't make something, my kids get nothing.
    c) if I charge money, I probably couldn't steal clip art as shamelessly as I currently do.
    d) where's your spirit of holiday giving? Grinch! ;-)

  5. Hi Jennifer,
    These look amazing. I can't get the google docs Bereshis sequencing- and also I was looking ahead at Google doc for Hanukkah and also it was asking for permission. Could you please give me Google doc permission (did you get an email about that?) or email the documents to me?
    You are clearly very talented!
