Default Daycare and Preschool Curriculum

I am working on developing my own 12 month daycare/preschool curriculum and it made think of the site teacherspayteachers.com. Is there an equivalent for early childhood curriculum and lessons? I am not up for buying a whole mother goose curriculum package, I like doing things my way lol, but I would be into buying specific projects, templates, etc if needed. I would also love to have a venue to sell packaged daycare lessons with corresponding newsletters to parents. Have any of you done anything like that?
My husband keeps bugging me to start a blog and then sell ebooks of activities/lessons from there but that sounds like a whole other job I am not up for. Anyone blog/sell stuff that way?
This is all new territory to me.

I have done something similar here are the sites that I use.

education.com

mailbox gold, you have to pay for this but it's $5.00 a month and I basically have the same thing year after year.

i have also kept all of my curriculum books from MGT and Sunshine express, we reuse the ones that are super fun and cool. I just make my own stuff up to go along with it. I hav tacked the super fun days that the kids loved and we don't bother with the others.

I love tpt there are a lot of free stuff on there.

oh and another called toddler express. they have two set calendars one for preschool age and one for toddler age. I love that site becuase I have two different classes

I have a large 3 ring binder with divider tabs. It's Jan-Dec and then theme based units unrelated to seasons or holidays in the back in alphabetical order. I use a LOT of TPT stuff. LOVE that site!

I keep a small tote for each season/theme in my daycare closet. Everything is laminated, and I just reuse now and photocopy (from my binder) any of the 'consumable' stuff.
