everyone that knows me knows that...

I love the smell of a new box of Crayola crayons.

This (as much as I might like it to be) is not my own private stash.

You might also know...

that I love to surprise and help out my daughters' teachers,

who spend so much much of their already way-to-small paychecks,

on things for the children in their classes.

The same children that they give their hearts and energy to on a daily basis.

So these crayons, along with 20 new expo white board markers,

are to replenish the project boxes that one teacher provided for her class at beginning of the year.  Because it breaks my Crayola loving heart to see children trying to be creative and "do their best" with a 1/2 inch nub of a crayon. 

And something you don't know, well, except for Beki, is that I like to play around on the computer, feeding my newly developed obsession of creating blog headers like mine and like this one.  For those of you who don't know Beki, she is the artist formerly known as PameringBeki, and as part of moving towards her 2010 goal of growing her business, changed the name of her Etsy shop to...

and wanted a new blog look, one that captured the essence of her, her life, and her business.  {I also created the rusted chain banner above} what d'ya think ?!!

It was so fun
that I'm hoping some of you
might want me to create a new look for your blog.

Hi Gina! Happy SITS Saturday! Your blog header is absolutely adorable, I love it! I'm just starting to get acquainted with html and css editing, though I'm nowhere near that advanced yet!

xo, Michelle

How very nice of you to do that for the teacher! As a former teacher, I can tell you that those sorts of things are very much appreciated!

You have a lot of talent! I actually just asked a friend if she would design a blog header for me today, but she hasn't gotten back to me yet. :(

The header is amazing!

Debbie said...

If I hadn't just sprung for a new blog makeover a couple of months ago, I would jump on this in a heartbeat! You are very talented. And good for you for supporting the teachers.
Came over from SITS.

You're so kind with those crayons; I still remember the childhood thrill of a brand new box, and Crayola is definitely the best. And the header you created is lovely.

I'm thinking that you and I have a lot in common...I also love the smell of new crayons.

I think my favorite past time is going school supply shopping!!!!!

I love Beki's banner!!!
Wanna make a blog button??? I've been wanting one and have NO IDEA how to make one.

Tammy said...

You're so sweet.

Jules said...

Yes! Yes! Yes! I have always struggled with my blog headers.

I would love to see what you can come up with for me!! :)
