My daughter has to make a book for a kindergartner in her science class. If we purchase your planets posters group could we use your images in the book? it will not be professionally published. Thanks!

Yes, of course! That's no problem at all! :) Just please give credit to Teacher's Toolkit. Thanks so much for taking the time to ask - it is much appreciated! I'm sure the book will be fabulous! Just when you mention images.....I should say the posters are created by me and you are more than welcome to use them for whatever purpose, but the actual clip art images must remain as part of the posters, as they are copyrighted to the artist who created them. Hope that info helps!

Hi Wendy. I bought your "Spring Borders" collection and I love it. I am a seller on TpT and am just finishing a product. When I began to write the credit page for clip art, I noticed on your TOU that this clip art is not to be used "on the internet in any form." Under your description it states commercial use is okay. Now I'm confused. Can this product be used on TpT? I hope so because I've used some of your clip art in my other products and have been very happy. Please let me know.

Yes, of course! I am so sorry for the confusion. This was one of my earlier products when I had just started and had no clue!! I now have a separate TOU for teaching resources and one for clip art. I just need to find the time to redo them - a summer project hopefully. Please use as you need - my terms are totally easy! Thanks for bringing it to my attention - on my 'to-do' list! :D

I am planning to purchase some of your clip art. I will be creating lessons on the Smart board. Is it ok to use the clip art if I take a screen shot of the entire page? I will NOT use any of your art as the interactive pieces therefore it would be secure. Please let me know what you think and I will definitely respect your wishes. I understand that you work very hard to create these wonderful products and the importance of securing them. Thank you for your consideration,

However, please remember that you must post 2-3 freebies/ideas for every product you post, and you must put a $ or the price on any paid resource.

Hi there! I'm so sorry you are having this issue! It is nearly 1am and I have school tomorrow, but will check it as soon as I get home. This has been bought a number of times and no-one else has mentioned this - I can't imagine what could be wrong, but be assured I will sort it as soon as I can. Please accept my sincere apologies...I wonder if the file has become corrupted somehow? - I know there has been technical issues with the site lately......Just a quick update for you....I'm wondering if you are referring to the yellow line on the halloween pumpkins? - these are meant to be there to show the pumpkin was cut open to be carved - it's his hat. However I can easily do a different pumpkin if you prefer - it would be no problem. I can do them on Thursday and let you know when they would be ready for download. I personally can't see any other lines you might be referring to, but it's no problem to change them out. Hope this info helps. Update: Apologies for the delay! I decided to redo the pack completely, so it took a little time! The frames can now be re-downloaded. Thanks so much for your patience!

Hi there! There shouldn't be a problem with the file, as it has been downloaded and used by many. Have you 'extracted' the contents? (I usually extract to my desktop and then move to wherever I want to store them.) Let me know what procedure you are using and I will try my best to help. Failing that, if it is easier for you, contact me by email and I can send the PNGs directly - will save having to open the file. (Perhaps there is a glitch on the site?) I can be contacted at teacherstoolkitblog@gmail.com. I am happy to send the images to you directly. :D

Hi there - thank you so much for contacting me! I am so sorry there is an issue - I will check the bundle immediately and of course send the missing items - I can't apologise enough and don't understand how this could have happened!
Update: I have checked and double checked and everything is there! I still have all the originals, so I will add a page before each center, so you can match them up. 'Down on the farm' was unfortunately batched together with the activities, but it is there. I will rebundle with the additional info and send it to your email. Apologies for any confusion! Update: I have tried to email you, but it has bounced back - sorry! Perhaps you have another email address?

Hi Michele,
Would you mind emailing me at this email address: teacherstoolkitblog@gmail.com. I would make this as a custom order for you as I don't currently have it in my plans (it would be too similar to what I already have). Once I have your design preferences, I could begin work on it straight away - it should only take me 3 days at most. The elements would be the same, but with your preferred scheme.

I'm not sure I understand the "Commercial Use OK" phrase, (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Spring-Clip-Art-For-Patterning-Set-1-Commercial-Use-OK-617166) as I see that your Terms of Use page clearly limits usage to one teacher's classroom. I'm writing curriculum for our County Department of Agriculture, and am looking for appropriate clip art. My lessons would be used in 2-4 classrooms at six different schools. I certainly don't want to violate your terms of use or disrespect all your hard work! Could you clarify for me, please?

Hi there,
Thank you for your question. I'm not sure if I'm understanding correctly - all of the backgrounds are monocolor, as in no gradients etc. As there are 60 backgrounds, the colors cover the spectrum, with some of the polkadots white and some with a matching color. I hope this info helps.

You are so nice to take the time to answer my question. PNG is a higher quality image for clip art but JPEG for photos. Right? Believe it or not, in Word 2013 I can make a transparent background in a JPEG image.

Hi Anne,

Yes, I believe that is correct for photos - my dear hubby would know more about that than me, as that would be his passion. I rarely use Word now for products as I enjoy creating in Powerpoint.

Your products are neat! Everything you do is outstanding.

My question is, why do you use both JPG and PNG formats? I usually just use JPG because I'm a photographer. I understand what PNG format is but can't both formats be used in all the same way by creators?

Hi there!
Thank you for your question. I use PNG as many people prefer to have their images with a transparent background. With a PNG image, you can have both white and transparent backgrounds, whereas a JPEG can only be white. Most people prefer PNG as it gives them an element of choice. PNG is also a higher quality image, but does take up more file space. Hope that helps!

Hi, I appreciate you taking the time to enquire. Unfortunately the photos are for personal use only. My apologies if I haven't stated this. I uploaded these when I was first new and didn't know what I was doing! I will update the description to make it clear.
Thanks again for asking.

Yes a PDF would be great! Maybe you could save the editable one as a ppt? But I'll take a PDF of it all over nothing. :)

No worries, will see what I can sort. I'm in the middle of a paid product right now, but will get to it as soon as I can! I should be able to copy the pages over to a ppt and that way they will still be editable. Fingers crossed!

HELLO! I love your paper and I have downloaded, but I am not sure how to open them. They are being saved automatically in my picture galler but I don't think that is where there are supposed to be because once they are in there I am unable to do anything with them. Any help you can provide would be great! Thanks, Susan

Hi Susan,
Is the zip file downloading ok? If so, just click and 'select all' and extract to your desktop. I will leave you my email address and if you prefer, I can send the file to you that way. I'm not too sure what the problem is or if I will be helping. Perhaps it is a technical issue that TPT might need to deal with. I will have a look on the forums to see if anyone else is having the same problem and see if there is a solution there. My email is: wendydotwilson@hotmail.com. Please feel free to contact me.

Also my apologies! I have just noticed the date of your question, but I had no notification of it or I would have responded immediately - I'm so sorry!

Aw, I'm so sorry your having trouble. I'm about to go to school but will check it out this evening. I can also send it via email if you want? My email address is wendydotwilson@hotmail.com. Will still check the download out, just in case something has happened and update this answer later. You're more than welcome to contact me by email. :)
Update: I downloaded the file and the text has moved!! How strange! Thank you so much for alerting me to the problem. I have uploaded the original Powerpoint file, which also gives you the possibility of making changes should you wish. Hope this solves the problem!

Thanks for your response! I completely understand how busy this time of year is--both at home and at school. I need them as clip art. I'm following you so it will notify me if you post them. Happy Holidays! :)

Hi There! I love your letters. Do you have plans to any more themed letters or take custom requests? I am looking for Valentine's Day-ish ones, Back to School ones, etc. (Basically one for each month). Thanks!

Hi Mary,
I am hoping to! I'm in the process of converting the cloud letters printables to clipart (request), but I have to admit the last couple of weeks has been crazy at school and I've been so tired, I haven't managed much for TpT. I'm hoping for a chance in the holidays...... I do have heart ones somewhere that I started to make, so I'll have a look and see what I can come up with. (I have a lovely reindeer packet that has no chance of getting finished - lol! I've given up on my Christmas stuff!) I just don't know where the time has gone! May I just ask is it printables you would like or clipart? The printables are quicker to knock up! The clipart takes a lot longer ( a slow process!), but please keep a look out as I am sure I will be back to creating when school is finally out! Thanks for asking!

Thanks for your fast reply. I just checked out some YouTube plus the Adobe Elements website. Guess I'll have to invest in it. If you have any advice on that, please let me know. Thanks again for your good advice. Loved your backgrounds! Elyse

Hi Elyse - you should download a free trial first and see if you like it. Some of the programs are so expensive! I was lucky in that I got Elements as part of another purchase. Many blogs offer advice too. I often 'google' if I want to know something and loads of videos are thrown up. Powerpoint is brilliant too! Many sellers make clip art on their ipads using Art Studio. It's a steep learning curve, but fun! :)

Hi there! Just bought this product (it's so cute!) but I was wondering if you would be able to add an exclamation mark and quotation marks to it? Hope it's not too much trouble. I am using it for a header for my new unit and would love to add those. BTW - I would love to give you credit on my unit by using a button (image) of your store. Do you think you could also add that please? Thanks so much!

Hi Alessia,

Absolutely no trouble at all (I hope!). Strangely I never thought about punctuation and am so glad you mentioned it!

It's late here, so I will have a look tomorrow and see what I can come up with. I will revise the file and you will be able to re-download.

Thanks so much for your lovely comments - they made me smile! I love it when somebody finds something useful. I must check the file, as I thought I had included a TOU page, with my button on?

In case you need to contact me - wendydotwilson@hotmail.com

I will get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks again!

Wendy :)

Update: I have revised the file to include question, exclamation and quotation marks. Hope they are ok for you! :)

Hello there. I saw a recent post about this awesome Celebration Giveaway you are having! I believe I just entered it but I'm not sure. I do not have a blog but I did include a link to my TpT page. I also selected "Winner's Choice" for the prize. Do you need anything else from me or will I be notified once the giveaway is over to tell me what I need to do? I'm a little unsure.

Just let me know!

Hi Beth - Zippy! Love the name! I am so sorry, but I have checked my google doc and you are not on it. The giveaway has been live for a couple of days and it isn't possible to change the Rafflecopters now, as they have entries. I'm so sorry I missed you as your clip art is amazing and I would love to have had a contribution from you! Keep checking the forums, as giveaways pop up regularly and are great fun! Maybe you would consider doing a guest blog post for me featuring your clip art? I would love to be able to do that for you - new sellers of clip art are heartliy welcomed at TpT!

Good Evening!!!

I just purchased your safari numbers, I love it!!! However, just curious, do you add #11-20 or 11-30? I wanted to fill my Math board all the way to 20 or 30 if possible with your cute print. Please let me know!!! Thanks!! Have a blessed weekend!! Also, do you have a safari daily schedule? Would love to buy it to add to my classroom!!

Hi Prissy!
Thank you for your kind comment and question! I can certainly have a go at adding numbers to 30, but will need a few days. I will reupload the file when it is ready. Just keep checking! May I ask what you mean by schedule? Like a visual timetable? I more than happy to give it a go....if I can! I will leave you my email address and if you send specifics for the schedule, I'll see what I can do.....I love a challenge! :)

I just dowloaded your file and the only things in there when I unzipped it was the Safari Set 1 Editable.pptx and Safari Set 1.pdf along with the cover page and the Thank you page...nothing else was in the file that was listed. Is there an issue with the items not being in the file. Do you suggest I try downloading it again and see if more things show up? You had listed many more items that would be in the file, that is the only reason I am asking. :) Thanks so much! I really love what you did and hope we can figure it out! Thanks! :) Melissa

Hi Melissa,
Thank you for your question. I have just looked at the description which says:
Safari Set 1 - 8 pages;
Safari Set 1 Editable - 8 pages.
Is there actually nothing in these files? Are you just getting an empty file? Yikes! There should be 8 pages in each file with a variety of labels! I will check it out and get back to you - just wanted to leave you a wee message first. Thank you so much for bringing to my attention. I had thought I had checked the download, as I usually do. My apologies and thank you for your patience!
Wendy :)

UPDATE: Hi Melissa - I have checked the file and everything is where it should be. I'm just wondering if perhaps you haven't opened it fully? As it's a zip file, you can't open the documents held within unless you 'extract' them. I would usually 'extract' to desktop - it's easy to find them that way. When you look on your desktop, you will see the files. When you click on them, the editable file will open in Powerpoint, so you can add text. The other will open in your PDF program, if you just want to print and not add text. I hope this addresses the issue you have been having. Please let me know if you need any further help.

Hi there,
Thank you for your question. I have checked the file and can see I have included an editable calendar (for the main calendar of the set). I presume you would like to edit one of the others, which is a very sensible point! I honestly don't know why that didn't occur to me! My apologies! I will get working on that today and upload the new file with the revised calendar sets. You will be sent an email that the set has been revised and will be able to re-download. Just in case that doesn't happen, can you send me your email address and I can send it that way too? My email is: wendydotwilson@hotmail.com
Thanks for your patience! So glad you like the calendars!

Update! The new file is ready for download. I have made all the calendars editable. Hope that helps! :)

Hi there,
Thanks for the question. I'm really sorry you're having some troubles. I'll have a look at the file and see if there's a problem. Once sorted I will reupload as a revised file so you can download it again. I can't imagine what the problem would be. It is created in Microsoft Powerpoint, so you should be able to just click on text box and change the text and font to suit your needs. However I will check and see if there is a problem with the download and file. Apologies again! I will sort it as soon as I can.

Update: I have downloaded the file and have opened it in Microsoft Powerpoint and I can click on the text boxes and edit them. I'm wondering if you have opened the file with another programme? If you could detail for me exactly what you're doing, I might be able to help. :)
