ABE Sponsor Spotlight: Pearl Tree Designs

As my blog has grown, so has my desire for a more professional, clean look.  I searched and searched for a blog designer I felt I could afford that did quality work that I loved, and had a hard time finding one!  I could find great designers, but would have to pay much more than I felt I could afford, but when I found affordable designers I wasn’t always thrilled with their style of design.  I finally gave up and decided to wait for something to fall into my lap.

Ironically, I met Tree, mama behind Pearl Tree Designs, when I signed up to participate in A Blogtastic Extravaganza!  I got to know her a bit, and found out she was willing to sponsor a blogger for A Blogtastic Extravaganza.  I looked at her blog and was thrilled!  I loved her blog design, and knew I’d love her work.  And after seeing other designs she’d done, I was beyond excited.

So, who is Tree?

My name is Tree (short for Teresa). I’ve been with the love of my life for almost 24 years. We are blessed to have 5 beautiful children, a lovely daughter-in-law, and 2 adorable granddaughters. My home life is very full, and I also work outside the home in Social Services for our local Veterans Home. You can also find me working hard at my mom review blog, Mother of Pearl It Is.

I also love…

the beach. blogging. web designing. computers. parties. family barbeques. amusement and water parks. date night with the hubby. family fun night. movies. any time with the family.

And how did she learn how to design?

I am a self-taught designer… started many years ago searching the web to learn skinning for my mommy forum. I started offering skin designs, buttons, photo signatures, etc. for message board forums, and then caught the “blogging bug.” I tried my hand at blog designing using the html/css knowledge I already had from years of forum designing, and began offering blog designs to close friends. From there, Pearl Tree Designs was born. My goal is to offer quality, affordable designs to everyone, so they too can enjoy having a beautiful blog they can be proud of.

Over the past few months I’ve gotten to know Tree even better, and I can tell you she’s an all around awesome person!   She has made this process very easy.  I admit I am not the most knowledgeable about the ins and outs of design and html codes and such.  I know I must have had ridiculous questions, yet Tree was always patient and answered them for me so I could understand and choose what was best and what I envisioned for my blog.

I am thrilled to see the final result of her work!  It’s DONE! Isn’t it amazing?! She did an amazing job and I almost wish I had another blog to see what new design she’d come up with!

  36. I was lucky enough to win a button and header image for my blog but a whole design would be great. My blog is http://www.savingmoneycanbefun.blogspot.com/ and it is pretty basic as I don't have a ton of time to work on it.

  37. Tree's designs are so smooth and clear! I would have her give My Mom Mart blog a facelift… just to take off a couple years 😉
