I have spent many years doodling and designing….and dreaming of a magical website where people could take my work and create their own products!
This mouse pad was created for Lisa, my fun friend who teaches elementary school on just that. At long last after fifteen years, that dream is a reality and I am overwhelmed with delight every time I think about it. The neatest part about this website is the amount of love, support and teamwork it has taken to create it. I am so appreciative of my awesome first husband and my two sons for their patience and support all of the years that it took to create the designs and build my customer base!
And speaking of customer base, a big round of applause for my number one fan…Veronica White! This is what she has to say about all of this jazz. “Custom isn’t the word that I would use, it’s much more personal than that. Working with Laura every year to create our family Christmas cards is a way to capture that space and time in our lives as a family. They are portraits of who we are. We look back at them year after year and smile. As a result she has become a part of our family. The process of creating them is always easy, fun, creative and never disappointing. She works with me to ensure that I am always happy with the final product. And it is with great pleasure that I recommend and highly encourage using Laura for any size custom job.” The fun thing is that now everyone can create and they don’t have to wait for me to do it. They can do it at shoplaurakelly.
I am thankful for the failed attempts of the first three web development companies that made promises they couldn’t follow through with which led me to Overcoffee and in that process took me down a new path in my life journey.
Here are a few of the products that were created on the website for friends and family.
The personalized placemat was made for Jordan, one of the princesses in our family.
The note cards and memo pad were created using the new Me and My Peeps characters. You can create your family including skin tones, hair and clothes colors and hobbies. A big shout out to Ryp and Dan at Overcoffee for their programming expertise!
And how fun is this…a puzzle with your custom family! You can get playing cards too.
The flat notes are great for quick correspondence. These were created for Christine, my soon-to-be sister in law!
And of course the fantastic luggage tags…made of a hard plastic! I am not so sure my 13 year old is going to really use this design. I think it is cute. He thinks it is for boys much younger than he. LOL.
I would also like to acknowledge my cousin Priscilla who was shoplaurakelly’s first online customer…ordering massive amounts of Me and My Peeps products for family…mugs, blankets, aprons, playing cards and more! Check out these fun photographs from the gift exchange.
So, if you have a few minutes, check out the new site. If you love the way it is bright, cheery, crisp and fun, you can join me in being thankful for Andy…the creative genius at Overcoffee who does that piece.
Signing off with much gratitude on this lucky St. Patrick’s Day!
