Rachel's Reflections

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Rachel contacted us wanting a blog design.  Like most, she probably wasn't too thrilled to find out that we had a waiting list.  However, the description of what she wanted sounded similar to a premade template we had, so we steered her to take a look.  She did and she liked it - with one small request...could we change the orange poms and banner flags to blue.  So for a small fee, we were able to customize the template to make it hers!


Rachel also decided to add some branding items for Facebook and her Teachers Pay Teachers store.

Learning in Wonderland

Sunday, August 3, 2014

Maribel is the dynamo behind Learning in Wonderland.
She contacted me with a blog design already in mind!

(Little did she know I was blog stalking her before she contacted me...tee hee!)


All I had to do was tweak her ideas and fine tune them.

She wanted a date ribbon to match the ribbon under the header where her page links are located.  That was fun since I'd never had anyone want one like that before!

Maribel's blog has amazing ideas and resources so RUN to check it out!
(And she's having a back to school sale soon, too!)

Along the way, my dislike of Internet Explorer was renewed.  For some reason, when Maribel views her blog in IE she sees a black box around her white posting and sidebar areas that I don't see.  However, I get horrible ugly pop-up ads in places she doesn't.

Internet Explorer has had known issues with Blogger all along and apparently they haven't gone away.  I strongly recommend people don't use IE.  If your tech person tells you that you have to use IE I think I would be concerned about his or her capabilities.

This sums it up in a nutshell!  LOL!

Bouncing Through Life In First Grade

Saturday, August 2, 2014

Darla loved the look of the "Dainty" premade template in our Buzzing Bye collection.


She wanted to add a Teachers Pay Teachers store button, email button, and a Facebook button.

A couple days ago, she contacted me and decided to add a Bloglovin' button and a sidebar profile picture (you can see that in the screenshot above)!


Darla also wanted to give her Facebook page a matching look.



All of our designs, including premades, can be added to at any time.  
So if you, all of a sudden, decide you need something that you didn't originally think you did, just send us an email and we'll get you taken care of.


Fashionably Kindergarten

Friday, August 1, 2014

Brenna is a new blogger who wanted something bright and fun for her blog.

She also wanted the option of adding things to her blog down the road such as items for a Teachers Pay Teachers store or Facebook banner.

Honey Bunch customers can rest easy knowing that items can be added at anytime!


If you get a chance, please head over and welcome Brenna to the wonderful world of blogging!


Kindergarten Stars

Friday, July 25, 2014

Lorrie wanted an updated look for her classroom blog.

Her needs were simple:  primary colors and stars to go with her theme.  We found her come cute kids to make it even more fun!


It's great to have a polished look for parents and not just your fellow teachers.  It speaks volumes about you as a professional just like wearing professional attire.

Our Class Bee packages and premade templates make having a "put-together" class blog easy and affordable!

Anchors Away in First Grade

Friday, July 18, 2014

Anchors Away in First Grade is a new blog written by Kimberly.  Kimberly is a first grade teacher in California who got the idea to start her own blog while attending the Southern California Kindergarten Conference not too long ago.


I was lucky enough to have the pleasure to install Kimberly's blog on her birthday!

Kimberly may be new to blogging but she's not new to teaching and is eager to share the ways she helps her students learn and use technology in the classroom. 


First Grade Dual Adventures

Saturday, July 12, 2014

Veronica is starting a new adventure in a dual immersion classroom and wanted a new blog to go along with it.

She wanted something girly, preferably with polka dots...a pretty place where she can go at the end of the day and write about her adventures.


I think this design turned out perfect for Veronica!


The Third Grade Zoo

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Jessicca contacted us because she wanted a blog designed using Melonheadz graphics.

She knew exactly what she wanted...pink, green, zoo animals, animal prints, and Melonheadz kidlettes!

Jessicca was also able to give some specific examples of what she likes such as "bright colours and a layered/bulky header".  Sometimes those little things really help guide the design.


Jessica also ordered some matching branding items for her Teachers Pay Teacher Store and Pinterest.


Markers & Mascara

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

Ashley and Brooklynn are the duo behind the new blog, Markers & Mascara.

This pair of kindergarten teachers have dubbed themselves the "Lucy and Ethel" of their group of fourteen kindergarten teachers!  Yes...FOURTEEN!


I love the name they chose for their blog and the combination of the coral and turquoise.

They are offering some July freebies right now, so head over and check them out for yourself!
