A Little Help to Get You Organized in 2015 Giveaway!


I know, I know!! 2015 is still a couple of months away...
But if you are anything like me, then you like to get your calendars/planners printed or ordered ahead of time.

I consider myself to be a planner/calendar hoarder.... seriously, I can never have too many.

I have my glass whiteboard calendar that hangs behind my desk and I use as a weekly guide.
I also have a large monthly desk calendar that I use to keep track of custom blog designs and a weekly planner that I no longer use. I have since replaced my weekly planner with my FAVORITE Hello Planner, which I designed myself.

To be quite honest, I have no idea why I use a variety of calendars, but it seems to work for me. This month, I have already received my 2015 "At a Glance" wall calendar and weekly planner from Shoplet.com! I've  used the "At a Glance" planners for a very long time. I love how simple they are in design and how the planners are organized both monthly and weekly. I typically get them from OfficeMax or Amazon, but I decided to get mine from Shoplet.com this year!!

Even though I absolutely LOVE the simplicity of the At a Glance Monthly Planner, I probably will not get much use out of it this year since I am using my Hello Planner everyday now.

The At a Glance Monthly planner is available in two sizes and two colors. I am not a fan of the gold one, but the black one is very nice. The cover feels almost like a soft rubber and seems to be quite durable.
The preview on Shoplet.com makes the lines seem a bit yellowish or light gold; however, I can assure you that the writing lines and grids are a soft gray. The Planner is organized by month and includes a two-page monthly spread followed by a two-page weekly spread.  This gives users a lot of room to write in. 


The At a Glance 2015 Wall Calendar is a MUST-HAVE tool for me!! I have to have a monthly visual hanging up at all times and I love the new size of the 2015 Wall Calendars! Again, the preview below makes the calendar color seem a bit dingy when it is not so.  I used the image below because I do not have my new wall calendar hanging up, but I wanted you all to see how it looks.

The At-A-Glance wall calendar is a big calendar, and measures 12 x 16-1/4 inches. It features a monthly grid on each page with lined blocks as well as a past and future month reference. It starts the day of the week on Sunday rather than on Monday, but this is what I prefer. The pages are perforated, so at the end of each month I can cleanly tear the page from the calendar. This calendar also features a smooth black headband with a copper hanging grommet so it easily hangs from a nail, tack, etc. There is also plenty of room at the top of each month's page where you can add notes, quotes, doodles, etc.
I love the use of clean, modern serif fonts and the overall design. There is not much more I can say about a wall calendar - only that this is one tool I will always have hanging in my office. Feel free to click the images to check out these calendars on Shoplet.com.
I think this will be the year that I retire using any At a Glance Monthly Planners because I am in LOVE with my Hello Planner! I am able to print it up for any year, edit the pages before I print them, print only the pages I need, and organize it however I want. It really gives me so much freedom to get organized in such a personal way!

I have many more add-ons and Hello Planners in the works, but you are more than welcome to check out what I have available now by clicking the image below.

A New Look!

Hi Everyone!!

I am not sure if any of you have noticed, but my blog and website have been getting a new look to prepare for some new journeys I have in store!! I noticed a huge spike in traffic to my other pages once I scrapped out my old navigation menu... you live and learn.. haha

My new look is definitely bold, but I have kept the overall design very simple and clean. I am in love with a minimalist design with splashes of color and personality!

I will be updating my Terms Of Use file to match the design, but if you have my old button, I would love for you to swap it out with the new one. I am in love with it and will be keeping it for a long while (hopefully..haha)

Just save one of the button images below to your 3AM Teacher Clipart Folder and toss out the old one.



I will also be trying to get all of my clipart sets up and available on my website by the end of November. I still have quite a lot more work to do on my website, but I think you will all be quite happy with the new improvements and navigation. I had to zoom out quite a bit to get the home page of the site in one screenshot for you, but HERE IT IS!!!

I would love to know what you all think. I will be adding quite a bit of content to the custom blog design pages, but please let me know if you have any suggestions on how I can continue to improve the site and content.


I have been really wanting to put together workshops and designer resources for quite some time now. I am beginning to prepare my blog and website for a new learning series and design resources I plan to have ready by January. I hope to bring in the new year with a huge bang!! One thing I am really struggling with is getting used to hearing my voice and seeing myself on video... it is so weird and I will just have to get over the insecurities. The only way to continue growing is to take that first leap in and hope for the best..haha

I hope to touch on some hot topics to help may of you learn some new skills that will help you generate some extra income for your own families. I am definitely ready and excited to start sharing what I have learned and to provide resources to help ease some of the pain of the learning curve from learning how to use a new design program.  This will be quite a fun journey and I hope you will all help get me there as I struggle through my insecurities of putting my face and voice out there on the web....

Before I let you go this Tuesday morning... I wanted to give a little shout out to a couple of blogger/friends I recently had the honor of working with by giving them each a new custom blog design.


I can't say enough praises about the beautiful and talented Jen Jones from Hello Literacy!! I had such a blast working on her blog design and I absolutely love her new look!! Completing Jen's design was the ultimate motivation to getting my own design updated.

Here is the BEFORE screenshot I took...


And.... here is the AFTER screenshot once her design was all complete!!

Her design is bright, yet professional and clean in every way. The colors work amazingly well together and I think she definitely got her 3AM Teacher "Kate Spade-inspired" design. tehehe!! You can check out Jen's new look by clicking her button below...



The next blogger I had the honor of working with was equally as beautiful and talented!! Tabitha (from FlapJack Education) is always bursting with energy and her design helps you get a glimpse of a bit of that energy. This too, is another bright design coupled with clean serif fonts and an open layout that really works for her. I absolutely enjoyed working with both of these ladies and nothing makes me happier than an even happier client!!

Here is Tabitha's BEFORE screenshot...

AND.... here is the AFTER screenshot!! Branding was very important to Tabitha.. as she already had a very recognizable logo already in use. I took inspiration from the logo and her style to create something updated, clean, vibrant, and did not require that she re-brand her products with a new logo. 

Click on Tabitha's button below to check out her new blog look & say hello!!

I actually have three other blog designs I have completed as well, but I would like to feature just a couple at a time... 

I hope you have a beautiful Tuesday!!
XOXO
