Wizards, Witches, & Muggles OH MY!

Jennifer B. knew exactly what she wanted...Harry Potter!

She even had a layout and font in mind.

Sometimes knowing exactly what you want can speed up the design process.  Sometimes it doesn't.

In Jennifer's case it did.

Grab your broom and fly over to see what Jennifer conjures up on her new blog!

Dahl's Dugout

Sunday, April 6, 2014

Marisa is an instructional literacy coach who blogs at Dahl's Dugout.  She contacted us wanting a new look for her blog.  She wanted something with a baseball theme but not too over-the-top.  Marisa also knew that she wanted to stick to the red and blue color scheme that she already had going.

The Melonheadz 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame' bundle was perfect.

I think we hit a home run with her design!  What do you think?

Head over and check out what Marisa's got in her playbook.

Miss Nelson's Reading Rockstars!

Friday, April 4, 2014

Who could resist Melonheadz Rock n Roll bundle?  Tera obviously couldn't.

Tera is a reading resource/Title 1 teacher who wanted a modern rockstar theme with books and guitars.

I think her blog turned out fun and bright...totally rockin'!!

Head over to check out Tera's blog and follow along as she shares her passion for teaching reading with others.

Ms. Lilypad's Littles ~ Updated!

Sunday, March 30, 2014

Alison, whose blog we designed about a year ago, decided it was time for an update.  

This is her "before" picture.

Basically Alison wanted the same graphic elements and colors but with a much lighter, cleaner look.

Here is her "after" look.

Still the same graphics.  Still blue and green.
Still her wonderful blog...only better!

Hop on over to her blog and check it out!!

Update My Look!

Sunday, March 2, 2014

Vicky contacted us wanting an update to her look but not wanting to change things so much that people didn't recognize her blog.  She knew what she wanted to stay the same and what she wanted changed.  This included changing the name of her blog from "Traditions, Laughter, and Happily Ever After" to "Teaching and much MOORE".

As we went through the design process some of what she "thought" she wanted changed.  (This happens a lot more than you can imagine.)

She loved her "old" blog button and decided to have the header modeled after it.

The other item she wanted updated was her sidebar image.  This look is very popular and fun right now.

After all was said and done, Vicky's look is similar enough to not confuse people, contains the elements she loves, and yet is fresh.  Most importantly it's still unique and wonderful just like her!

If you are in the mood to update your site give us a holler!  Remember we offer a discount for returning customers too.

What's New Pussycat?

By the looks of things . . . a WHOLE lot!

As you can see Erika has done some major updating of our site.  She's wanted to do it for a.long.time. but things have been crazy busy and there wasn't any time left over for that.  Finally, she eeked out some time (some of which was in the early dawn hours here and there) and has gotten the basics up and running.

What do you think??

Erika is still teaching full-time, piloting a 1:1 iPad classroom for her district (which is a lot of extra work . . . but fun and exciting!)  She also is constantly going from one of her daughters' sporting events to another.

Misty has had major computer issues as well as working more than forty hours a week in her new job, so if you've tried to email her it would be a FAIL.  (Please email Erika using the link on the right of the header for the time being.)  To top things off, Misty's husband has been struggling with serious health issues.  Please keep both of them in your prayers.

Sarah is busy planning for her upcoming wedding in addition to teaching full-time.  We are so excited for her and her fiancee.


In the past few months, the "in" look of blogs has changed a lot.  

Our goal is still to make an affordable blog design for our customers that is as unique as they are.

Something that will stand out and be remembered.

Something that doesn't look like everyone else's.

If you are interested in a new design or are a past customer and just need some updates let us know.

Room 15 and Google Websites

Monday, December 16, 2013

We were asked awhile back if we could work with Google websites. Since Blogger is owned by Google we thought it would be a pretty simple process. It is anything but simple. Many districts are turning toward Google Websites to host classroom blogs.

We worked with Jessica (Dandelions and Dragonflies) to create this design for her classroom. As you can see its cute but not up to our normal standards. As a result we decided that the only Google Website that we will be designing is hers. Hopefully, Google will make these easier to design in the future.

The Science School Yard

Isn't this adorable? I have never seen a design like it. I absolutely love everything about it. Science should be fun and playful... just like this blog.

Nitty Gritty Science

Yesterday, I posted a bunch of designs that Erika and Sarah completed while I was student teaching. I thought I uncovered them all but guess what... their is more! I love this combination of the black and white flowers mixed in with the bright colors.
