My Marvelous Makeover!


Ta! Da!  I am beyond excited to unveil my "Teaching With Moxie" blog-makeover!  

When I started blogging last summer, the last thing I was concerned about was my blog's appearance.  I picked a pre-made template and loaded it myself.  It was cute and fit my needs at the time.

But in the last couple of months, I began to feel like I wanted the window to my world to better fit me and my personality.  I'm bright and sparkly, not lacey and flowery (like my old design). It took me weeks to search for the perfect elements.  I'm a good shopper, but not a great designer.  That's when Megan from A Bird in Hand Designs came to my rescue. 


A Bird in Hand Blog Design

Megan in not only a talented designer and fabulous teacher (visit her blog at I Teach. What's Your Superpower?), she is also my very dear friend and teaching partner.  Earlier today, we got together to discuss the makeover.  Once she had a plan, I sat back and witnessed her amazing talent and creative genius.  At one point I mentioned that I really wanted a picket fence, but couldn't find one to purchase.  "No problem", she said, and proceeded to create one on her computer.....just like that! Amazing! 

If you are in need of a blog design, I highly recommend Megan from A Bird in Hand Designs.  She will leave no stone unturned in putting your design together. Knowing her as well as I do, I can promise that she will not be happy until you are. 


Megan and Diane
Megan, thank you so much!  You have brightened my world in more ways that I can count!

    1. I am amazed! I recently bought Photoshop Elements and am so inept with it. I'll keep practicing, but will never be as good as Megan!

    1. Thank you, Laurie! I just visited your blog and am your newest follower! I love how your header gives the definitions of chickadee and jubilee. I find a lot of younger followers haven't heard the word "moxie", but it fits me perfectly. I so glad you stopped by as it allowed me to find you!
