Well, it's summer, and even though I have spent a number of hours (that I can't get back) watching Judge Judy and participating in other summertime guilty pleasures, I have gotten ONE - count it, ONE - thing done this past week. Slow clap, people. Slow clap.
Last Sunday I casually logged in to my 1.7 million social media outlets and immediately was inundated with images of the stats of every blogger I've ever followed. "What's this?" I thought. "Looks like fun. Everyone is doing it. FOMO. Better sign up RIGHT NOW."
I printed my stats page, posted it and waited not-so-patiently for the challenge to be revealed on Monday morning.
I hopped (read: ambled) out of bed to see what the Makeover Madness challenge would be. I was super excited to give one of my products a quick once-over! (HAHAHAHAHAHA...quick.)
I immediately knew which product needed a facelift.
Here's the really sad part...this is actually a facelift of the original. Oy. But obviously, it needed some work.
I redid the cover. It makes me so happy! AND I learned how to create a square cover so nothing gets cut off on my previews on TPT!
I tried to keep it simple and clean and easy to read. I used different fonts, a different background paper and different clipart! I patted myself on the back when I was done. And I patted my husband on the back because he knows how to to do things in Photoshop.
I was all ready to post my happy new cover. But then I started looking through the product itself. Well, I thought I can't very well have mis-matched backgrounds on the other slides. Better fix that.
So I did. Surely, I would be happy with that, right? Done, happy and moving on with summer life??
But no. Not yet.
I remembered reading about some skinny borders that people have begun using to maximize space on their worksheets! And the graphic organizers were looking pretty squished on the pages. How could kids even write in those tiny spaces??? And I didn't even use a good font the first time. Fixed that too.
To sum up:
- Updated cover
- Updated backgrounds and fonts on directions in the product
- Changed borders and fonts on all graphic organizers
- Added 6 sorting mats for use in a center
All in all:
I have LOVED seeing so many great product updates. What did you do for the TPT Seller Challenge this week?
Don't forget to link up with your Makeover Madness!
