Polka Dot Parlor on Etsy!

Today I wanted to introduce you to my Etsy shop and tell you a little bit about the story behind it. Many of you know that before Polka Dot Parlor (and Sarah), I was an elementary school teacher for 8 years. I discovered a passion for creating my own teaching materials for my students, and out of necessity created many organizational items that I used daily in my classroom. I've shared these items on my teaching blog and on TeachersPayTeachers and there is nothing that makes me happier than to hear how an item I've created has impacted teachers and students in classrooms nationwide. By learning how to create teaching materials, I've also discovered a passion for graphic design. I've helped numerous Etsy shops get set up with my pre-made Etsy shop designs, created business cards, logos, … [Read more...]

Currently {April 2015}

Hence, this monthly currently post hosted by Farley. I'll be posting each month so you can take a peek behind the scenes and get to know a little bit more about me!

New Website & Blog!

I am SO excited to debut the new and improved Polka Dot Parlor website! The new shop has been a labor of love for over a year now. Since opening Polka Dot Parlor in 2010, it has always been a dream of mine to build my website from the ground up. When browsing online one day, I came across the Quirky-Bird Designs website. I completely fell in love with all of Staci's web designs... and knew I wanted her to build my site one day. Fast forward to 2013 and I finally took the plunge and hired Staci to give my website a fresh new look! It has definitely been a time-consuming task to upload products, crop photos, research new vendors, keep up with current orders, and work on all of the checklists Staci had for me... all while entertaining and taking care of a toddler! We are finally complete … [Read more...]
