To Fly

Oh to start so small and insignificant … then become so large and powerful!  Look at the hues, the shapes, the sizes, the masterful way they float up into the air.  They scream, “LOOK AT ME!”  We watch, we wait, we stand in awe of the colors soaring … soaring … soaring into the sky.  The large and powerful … become small again, but not insignificant, small and oh so powerful, so beautiful.  We could watch all day and revel in the significance.

End of the School Year & Teacher Gifts

While we are finally out of school here in Alabama, I am sure there are a few of you around the country that are scrambling for a great teacher gift!  I wanted to share some these canvases I made for my daughter’s sweet teachers.  I loved making these ( … because I am always thinking up reasons to paint) and I think the teachers were thrilled with them as well.  One of her teachers asked if she could contact me should her room colors change, so I think they were pleased.

Whenever I am looking for inspiration, I always go to Pinterest first (please follow me here).  There are SO many talented people out there with so much to share and show the world.  I found these super cute canvases and made them my own (complete with original signature so the teachers can become uber wealthy when I make it big, HA!).

Below are a few more end of the year teacher gifts I have made in past years.  There are so many good ideas out there so it’s hard to go wrong.  I am sure most teachers appreciate the gifts that come from the heart, so make sure to write a heartfelt note to include with your gift.  Teachers work SO hard and really is there anything more important than our kids education?

I loved this one and the kids just adored being able to write the teacher a sweet note and sign the frame.  Win Win!

It’s the Brand New “Me”

Sometimes you just have to update your “look” … your “feel” … your “you”!  You know how this feels right?  I have been so very lucky to not have time to update my site.  Recently though, it was like I was obsessed … I had to to do it, to make the me in Beyer by Design come out and be seen.  So, here it is … come see what I am made of and how I have changed.

While I LOVE working with clients and making sure their designs are spectacular, I also love working to help people succeed.  This had me thinking about how I can help move businesses further.  There are times as a business owner when you don’t have the time to grow your business.  So, Beyer be Design will be offering a VA service.  VA stands for Virtual Assistant and there is such a need for this in the digital world.  I would be happy to speak with you about becoming a VA for your business so you can concentrate on your most important tasks.

I would love your feedback on the site as well, so take a look around and let me know what you think of the brand new “me”.
