Teresa Teaches

Saturday, August 15, 2015

Teresa teaches early childhood and loops with her children k-1 or 2. While she loves her littles, she didn't want her blog design to look kid-like.

Here's what she had to say about herself:
"I teach in the Bronx but I am a Georgia girl. My students have monogrammed clip boards, say yes ‘mam and can tell the difference between Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton.
I like bright colors to make my room happy. If I were to have an animal featured it would be a cute pig, my maiden name is Swinehart."

 I think her blog design is perfect for her! :)

Kindergarten Inspiration

Lynn is a TK teacher with a lovely new blog design.

 Katie at Autism Adventures has changed her blog name to Little Country Kindergarten because the autism program was dissolved in her county.

Martha wanted to update her blog button, store, and social links, but we ended up updating the header as well.  What a difference!



And here's the button before and after

An update can make a world of difference, wouldn't you agree?!

How's it going?

We've had a lot of life changes around here.  Some positive and some not so much.  But I believe that good comes out of everything if we have faith. :)

Sarah got married this summer and has been on a whirlwind honeymoon!  So if you are in the market for a premade template you might have a bit of a wait as a result.

Misty's husband has been suffering from serious health issues that have taken up the majority of her spare time so she is not very active in the business currently.  Hopefully that will change down the road.

I spent the beginning quarter of the year teaching full-time and helping my mom care for my dad as he suffered from advanced dementia/Alzheimer's and terminal cancer while doing what I could around here as well.  Needless to say, things got a tad bit neglected.

As a result of my father's death (and that of my way too young brother-in-law last summer) as well as some of my own health issues, I have cut way back on my design business.  

Not because I don't love it and don't enjoy it and all that, but it had literally become a full-time job in addition to my teaching full-time.  That is both a blessing and a curse I tell you.  That means people like my work.  Thank you!!  But that means I'm working instead of spending time with those I love.  Boo hoo!

Life is too short for that because we aren't guaranteed anything.

So I'm being very choosey.  Doing lots of updates for previous clients.  Limiting the new clients I take on, etc.  If you want a blog with Melonheadz clip art I got you covered!  If you don't mind waiting...great!

I want everyone who sent prayers my way while my dad was sick and dying to know I felt them. The kindness that people showed me blew me away.  Really!  There were days when I didn't feel like I could go on and had to tell a potential client that I couldn't help them and their response lifted me up enough to get through the rest of the day.

So thank you everyone!!

PS I'm still working on catching up with everything from that time so I apologize if you haven't heard back from me yet!

New Designs

Saturday, March 7, 2015

This isn't usually how we post our new designs but currently I'm (Erika) running a one woman show here and I can't keep up with designing and posting.

Someone asked me by email recently if we were only doing premades.  The answer is definitely no!

So here are a few things I've been busy with:






Here are some premades that Sarah has done:



And here's a recent update of a classroom blog:

Live, Laugh, Love Second ~ Updated!

Monday, November 17, 2014

Lori was a past client who contacted me about an update.  She briefly mentioned the color scheme she was thinking about and while browsing for design kits for another client I happened upon what I thought might be perfect for Lori's update.  She agreed and her design was born.

The transformation this blog underwent is amazing!

Are you ready??

This is Lori's before screenshot.

And this is the after screenshot!

Can you believe it?

I could almost just sit and stare at this one all day.
(and think Lori would agree!)

Premades Galore

Sunday, November 16, 2014

Our premade templates are always a big hit at back to school time, and this fall was no different.

Best of all, most of our premade templates can be customized and installed within 48 hours!

(Webber's Wondrous Workers is a classroom blog and not open to the public.)

Brittany Larsen is a kindergarten teacher and uses her blog for both parents and fellow teachers.  

Ms. Nally is a special education teacher who wanted a fun, upbeat blog design.  She definitely got it!  Check her out by clicking on the screen shot above.

(Mrs. Williams Kindergarten is a classroom blog and not open to the public.)

(The Gifted Stone is a classroom blog and not open to the public.)

Chad has not started blogging yet, but I can't wait to see what he has to say.

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!
