Treble in the Classroom
Amy wanted a primary-colored blog with a musical theme for her new design. I love the way the notes dance across the page!

Teaching and Lovin' It
Julie's colors are fun and inviting, but the cute little cats steal the show with their personality. Julie's previous design had her grade level in the title, but moving to a broader title is a great way to attract more readers. 
 
Fabulous Fourth Grade Froggies
  
Lorraine has been one of my biggest cheerleaders on this blog designing adventure. I created her classroom website earlier this year (also in a frog theme) and was so excited when she picked me to redo her teacher blog also. I am thrilled with how this one came together!

Your blog is a great way to show off your brand and all the little pieces can really pull it together. I just love the soft colors. It definitely makes me dream of summer!

Andrea's blog shows off her literacy focus with a fun star theme and a hint of sparkle. Does your blog design showcase YOUR passion?

Mrs. Carrico's Lightbulb Lab
Jennifer wanted a black, white, and red color scheme for her REACh classroom website. With so many bright colored blogs, a darker theme can definitely make yours stand out!

Smiling in Second Grade
Sara's blog is just too stinking cute. She wanted a bright, fun design that was also sophisticated. The colors, the dots, the chevrons... love! Her second grade blog is also a must-read so be sure you're following.

The Techie Teacher
Julie's new technology blog is bright, fun, and a little playful too. She loved the first draft, but wanted a little sparkle so we swapped one of her pages out for a glittery option. It's just another example of how you can have complete control over your design each step of the way!

Custom School Logo
Vanessa needed a new logo to use on her school website and letterhead. She knew what she wanted, but needed helping pulling it together. I love how it turned out! Even if you don't need an entire blog created, I'm happy to help you with your design needs.

Creativity in the Common Core Classroom
The "Wise Guys" decided it was time for a makeover as they start their new branding. Don't worry, you'll still find all the high-quality teaching materials you know and love on this fresh, new blog!

The Math Penguin
I designed Ari's first blog, The Science Penguin, a while ago. When she decided to branch out and write The Math Penguin, she came back for another design. We used the same penguins to tie the two blogs together, but this blog is so much brighter. I can't wait to read all of her math ideas!
 
Mrs. McCarthy's Kindergartners
Tara teaches with Ms. Sullivan, who just snapped up another one of my premade templates earlier this week. Premades are a great deal and still totally unique. The fun colors in this one are perfect for kindergarten!

Mrs. Brown Loves Bookworms
Sara is an elementary librarian who wanted a brand new blog to communicate and network with other librarians. She wanted clean, simple design that featured bookworms and books. I love how the pages and art go together!

Ms. Sullivan's Second Grade
My premade templates are a great way to get a discounted design that's still totally unique and one of a kind. I was happy to see this "Sunny Days" design get a home. It was one of my first and I made it in the car on our long drive to the beach last summer. It will make a great classroom blog for Ms. Sullivan's second graders!

I love blogs that showcase their writer's personality. Brittany wanted a bright, fun blog that represented teaching, but also her love of fashion. School supplies and pearls? I think so!

Welcome to Watters' Wharf
Lindsay couldn't have been easier to work with, and I don't think her blog could be any cuter either. I'm a beach-lover at heart and this ocean theme was just too much fun to create for her. I can't wait to see how she fills it up with her first grade ideas!
  
Coll Street Photography
 
Cassie wanted a soft, inviting blog for her photography business. She also wanted to incorporate her business logo, the little black bird. She had a definite vision in mind, but needed help making it happen. I really, really love the way it turned out!

Reading and Writing Redhead
Bex wanted a blog with purple and polka dots. She also expressed a love of sweets, her pup, and tulips. Getting to know you is an important part of your design and I love coming up with something just for you. We decided to run with her sweets theme. It looks good enough to eat!

Kickin' It With Class
Heather wanted a bright, but simple, design with owls.

Ari's cute little penguins just make me smile. I have a not-so-secret obsession with penguins so I was thrilled to do her blog. The little magnifying glass was the perfect touch to her royal blue and "penguin beak orange" theme.

The Learning Lodge
Julie knew exactly what she wanted for her blog and had tried to design it herself, but realized she needed a little help. I was happy to polish her ideas and give her a rustic themed blog that matched her title. She's also a new blogger, so click over to show her some love when she gets started.

Kristin wanted a bright blog with contemporary colors for her students and their families. She's also a brand new blogger so I set up her account from start to finish and handed it over once she loved the look. If you're thinking about a blog, but aren't sure where to start I'm happy to help!

Could your classroom site use a makeover for the new year too?
 
A Tapestry of Learning
Amy is a principal who wanted an internal blog for her teachers. She wanted to use the school colors, but showcase her love of gardening with the floral papers. I added an inlinkz account for her so she could "pin" things onto content-area boards right on her blog. I think her staff will find her new site really useful. What a great leader!

Mrs. Freshwater's Class
Melissa took her signature black and white polka dots and pumped them up with pink, lime, and aqua. She wasn't quite sure what she wanted, so this one went through several revisions before it felt just right. No matter how many tries it takes, your blog will be just what you want when it's finished!

Dills' Darlings
Even though I was tempted to keep this design for myself, I turned it over to Melissa. =) It's near and dear to my heart because I also use monsters in my classroom. She uses a lot of technology with her kindergarten students so we added a few ipods to the design too. Love it!

Mrs. Vasquez's Fabulous Froggies

Lorraine is one of my favorite bloggers so I was thrilled to help design her classroom blog. She already knew which graphic set she wanted to use, so had her a new blog installed less than 24 hours later. It's just too cute!

Continuing Education
Diana contacted me earlier this summer about starting two brand new blogs. We came up with the duck themed blog below and she decided to use it for her classroom. After installing it, we went back to work on this one as her teacher blog. I love how bold it is!

Mrs. Steinhilber's Team
Melissa saw a picture of one of my designs on Facebook and contacted me about making a classroom blog for her too. 48 hours later, she had a brand new blog for her students and their families. With Melissa's husband coaching at the high school and this summer's Olympics, I think the sports theme was a perfect choice!

K2: Kindergarten Squared
Page and Cristy work as a team to make up K2. They were so awesome to work with and knew exactly what they wanted for their blog (and even sent a sketch!), but just needed someone to make their vision happen. As with most blogs, this one changed a little along the way. It started out just red and black but ended up black, hot pink, teal, and lime. Does your blog reflect your personality? If not, let's work on it together.
Mrs. Patterson's 1st Grade Class

An Apple a Day in First Grade
Karen entered my blog makeover giveaway. Even though she didn't win, she decided to take advantage of my discount to anyone who entered. Even though her title is all about apples, she didn't want apples to take over her blog. The bold patterns she picked for her backgrounds definitely hold their own. She's a new blogger, so be sure to check her out!

Teaching is Elementary
Nancy wanted a simple blog with a "Sherlock Holmes" feel and I think these cute little kids are right on the mark. Having a theme for your blog is a great way to make an impact!

Mrs. Hodge and Her Kindergarten Kids 
Elizabeth is a new blogger who wanted a bright design with polka dots and stripes. This one was truly a team effort as we tried a couple different headers before finding the right one. I have to be honest, I thought about keeping this one for myself. =) Elizabeth says, "I could not be more thrilled to unveil my new design! I think Christi did an AMAZING job!!! If you are needing an updated or extra cute design, she's your girl!!! She was so patient with me and really listened to what I was wanting!"

Splashing into Second Grade
Diana's design really makes me want to play in the rain. I just know her students and their families will love keeping up-to-date with this blog.

The Teaching Thief
Amanda's rich colors are so pretty, her little raccoon mascot is just too cute, and who doesn't love polka dots? I love the way this one came together! Amanda says, "I am so excited about my new design.  When I saw it up and running for the first time I let out an audible squeal of delight! A HUGE raccoon thank you to Christi over at Ms. Fultz's Corner for the fabulous design.  If you were thinking about getting a blog make-over, she is wonderful to work with and has some great ideas.  I highly recommend her."

Teaching and Reaching
Brenda is a language arts middle school teacher who wanted a more sophisticated design for her new blog. This design feels like home to me because our bedroom is decorated in the same blues and browns with damask print. Your design should feel like home to you too. Is it time for a makeover?

Cupcakes and Caterpillars
Amy was so much fun to work with! She's a brand new blogger who was still figuring out her title and style when she contacted me. What started with just cupcakes ended up with caterpillars too. Your design should be all about YOU!

Schoolhouse Treasures
Diane purchased one of my premade designs, but personalized it with my "Cutest" package. This meant she had a brand new blog just a few hours after contacting me. It's still totally personalized too! Diane says, "If you are thinking that your blog is in need of a makeover or perhaps it just needs a little something, something to pull the look together, then you need to check out Christi's design site. I can't say enough good things about the whole process! She was able to put all this together for me so quickly. She responded immediately to my inquiry and within a few emails going back and forth she knew what I was looking for and voila! - it was done!!"

Mrs. Norris' Nest
Whooo doesn't love a brand new blog? Lauren's owl theme is just darling and she couldn't have been easier to work with. We swapped the chalkboard in this set out for a white SMARTboard. How "smart" is that? She made this blog for her students and parents. I think they're going to love it!
  
2nd Grade Pig Pen
Teresa is good friends with Cynthia, who custom ordered the frog blog below. Teresa loved the look and wanted one for herself with a pig theme. It makes me want to play in the mud!

Shepherd's Shining Stars
As I was finishing this design, I found out Erica is the teaching partner of Patti, who requested the music blog below. I was working on both of their blog designs, but neither one of them knew the other one was getting a makeover. How funny! I love that they both went with fun, bright colors.

One Class, One Sound
This design just screams fun to me. Bright colors, cute kids, rockin' instruments.... what could be better?

Curiouser and Curiouser
I just love the soft scrapbook look of Cindy's blog. She's a brand new blogger who wanted a simple, but beautiful, home to get started. I can't wait to see how it develops!

Kids Rock!
 
I had been playing around with this design under the theme "Rocker Chick" when Becky contacted me about her blog design. She was describing exactly what I had already made and it ended up being the perfect match for us both. Love it! Becky says, "I am absolutely thrilled with my new blog design!  With a new design, also comes a new name, "KIDS ROCK!"  Christi from Design by Christi, was so quick and helpful to help me get this awesome design.  Her prices ROCK!  If you are looking to get another blog design or start up your own blog, I highly recommend her."

Welcome to 2nd Grade Pad
Cynthia's design started this adventure, and she couldn't have been any easier to work with as my very first client. I just love the way all her pieces came together! Cynthia says, "I am super, duper excited over my new AHHH-DOR-ABLE blog design!  I have dabbled with doing my own thing and trying to make the vision in my head actually happen.  Of course, that is very challenging when you have NO clue what you are doing! I have checked with several people who do blog designs, but being a newbie to this blogging world, I just couldn't bring myself to spend hundreds of dollars.  I was so excited to read Christi's blog post this week and immediately contacted her.  I cannot believe how simple and enjoyable she made this whole process for me!  If you have been feeling that your blog design is not "quite right" and just can't do what you would like, then Christi is the perfect person to contact!!!"
