Tales from a Blog Designer

By on January 6, 2013 in Uncategorized with 15 Comments

Remember how I said I had so much fun doing my blog design?  Remember how I said I *might* start doing more designs.  Well, a few people offered their blogs and I HAD to oblige, right?

Please check out my new blog Tales from a Blog Designer!

I knew I had to stick with a ridiculously long name with Tales in it :)  This is my new site I’ll use to share my designs (the portfolio page), information on getting a custom design, and premade templates (if I have time to get any up that is).  I’m really excited about this new venture!  I’ve already done a few blogs (plus this one and my new design blog) and have LOVED them!

My friend Tanja from Journey of a Substitute Teacher has been so kind as I’ve been showing off some of my designs.  She knew much of what she wanted already!  Plus, I LOVE the quatrefoil!

Shawna from The Picture Book Teacher’s Edition commented on my design post offering her blog up.  I wasn’t sure how serious she was, but she emailed me and let me know she’d love a new design.  This was my first official design for someone else and I adore it!

I promise not to show you every design I make here, that’s what my other blog is for, but I’m hoping you’ll head over and follow me.  I’m not going to use it like a regular blog, though.  There won’t be any new blog posts that’ll show up in your feed.  You’ll have to keep checking back ūüėČ

As I’ve been designing, I’ve also created a few black frames that I can use on my designs.  I thought I’d share with you.  Just right-click the pictures to download them! :)  I just that you please give me credit in your file.

It’s back to work I go tomorrow!  I have SO much to do!  You probably won’t be hearing from me for a bit.  I hope your return was/will be smooth and painless!

    Cute ideas! I am a new K teacher blogger! I am a Kindergarten teacher right outside of Nashville (Franklin). I am trying to get my name out there and for people to check out my blog. I am having a hard time tapping in to the teaching blogging world. Any advice/shout-outs would be greatly appreciated!
