10. This Christmas card template is beautifully crafted. I think this one will be a hot seller!

11. This Christmas card template is cute. It’s a folding card, so it’s a bit more expensive. But you can place all those lottery scratch-off tickets for your friends and loved ones inside.

12. And here’s one that I recently designed. It comes with curved corners! It’s a chalkboard Christmas card party invitation template. You can use it to host corporate events or host a party at your home or whatever!

13. This is another Christmas card party template I designed that can be used for the same thing (corporate parties, holiday parties, host your own gathering, host your own Christmas day get together..)

14. This Christmas Card template doubles as an annual Family letter (on the back). I designed this one as well. I have more colors available such as black, navy, green, and gray.

15. And a favorite of mine from last year, a more simpler Eat, Drink & Be Merry Christmas Party Dinner Invitation Template!

So Long Thesis, Hello WordPress Canvas!

You guys, this has me busting at the seams and makes me want to skip all the items on my to-do list is working with a beautiful new theme for fallfordesign.com.  It’s the most lovely wordpress theme to grace this planet.  Or I’d like to think so.  I quickly grabbed myself a copy of the theme before the prices goes up.  But I can’t wait to use this theme and put an egg in this “basket” (or cross it off my to-do list).  I stumbled upon this theme while researching copyright laws and social media icons.  I was reading an interesting article over at angiemakes.com, and quickly realized that she has an amazing creative behind-the-scenes team and one of these guys was building a beautiful wordpress theme.  Guys, let me introduce you to WordPress Canvas.

When I found the theme, it wasn’t for sale yet so I contacted one of the developers (who’s name was listed on the bottom of wordpress canvas) and asked him how I could get my hands on this wonderful theme.  He said it wasn’t ready yet, but to give him a few days.  So I waited.  And he emailed me and told me it was done.  And then I waited some more, and I went to visit WordPress Canvas and fell more in love with it.

What I love about it is that I don’t have to be a CSS guru or HTML novice to customize this theme.  It’s packed full with the most trending web design now out there.  It’s design is rich and luxurious, so you don’t have to do much other then change a few colors.  It’s responsible, and there’s so many features built into it that make it easy to customize.  And it has a bunch of video tutorials.  I mean seriously, this theme is easy peasy!  You guys, this theme has won me over from Thesis.

You guys should watch this 10 minute video that gives you a glimpse of all its beautiful glory.  This video is what sold me on the theme.

After I purchased it, Chris congratulated me that I was the first buyer of the WordPress Canvas theme.  And let me tell you… it’s ah-mazing!  I can’t wait to launch my business growth with this theme.  I’m thinking of selling my creative talents right here on fallfordesign.com, all in one place.  What do you think?  I encourage you to go check it out and see for yourself at wordpresscanvas.com.
