I'm a mother of four amazing kids and married 21 years to my best friend. I'm living on the edge but doing so with passion and purpose. I received a B.A. in Rhetoric at U.C. Berkeley and J.D. at University of San Francisco. The many "hats" I wear in a day offers me to share my personal insights for the development of PosterMyWall, as one of its founders and head of marketing and operations.

PosterMyWall your classroom with VariQuest

PosterMyWall supports the need for visual displays in the classroom. So it only made sense to partner with VariQuest Learning Tools. With VariQuest Visual Learning Tools, teachers can now create professional teaching materials without the cost of purchasing from an outside source. These tools allow teachers to transform their classroom into an engaging environment through posters and banners that celebrate students’ achievements, set classroom expectations, and foster creativity.
Aside from being easy to use, PosterMyWall offers teachers an upgrade to a free teacher account. Students can use this account in the classroom, without having to create their own accounts. It’s a great way for teachers to organize the posters created for student projects! Best of all, PosterMyWall posters can easily be printed with the VariQuest Perfecta 2400 Printer or Poster Maker!

Celebrate your wedding anniversary with a photo collage!

When you think of June you think of weddings which wonderfully leads to anniversaries. Last week my husband and I celebrated our 24 years of marriage!  We enjoyed a weekend getaway just a few hours up the coast.  We returned to a favorite bed & breakfast that we stayed right before we married.  It was more beautiful and enjoyable then ever. We hiked, watched the sunset, ate the most scrumptious scones and treated to live music during breakfast. It felt like a little piece of heaven when you’re with the one you love.

A photo collage is a great way of commemorating anniversary memories like these. Customize a photo collage template below or view the complete gallery of templates here.

Commemorate the Graduation in your Family with a Poster Collage

Another school year is quickly coming to an end but this one is different. I’ve spent the last 15 years knowing that when another school begins in the fall, that I would be there take a quick snap shot of my son’s first day of the school year and send him off with a smile. In just a few weeks, my son will be graduating from high school and he’ll be hundreds of miles from home when he starts his first day of college in the fall.
Like many milestones in life…it’s bittersweet. I’m saying good bye to the little boy and seeing the wonderful man he has become. The joy and pride I feel for my son is immense. With his God-given gifts I know the world is his oyster. My husband joked and said that the poster collage I made was like therapy for me and I think that is partly true. I loved going through the photos and recalling the stories behind them.
The collage was very easy to put together using the Facebook InstaCollage feature. Don’t worry about your photos on Facebook, you can keep your settings private and remove the photos when you’ve completed your posters.

Create your InstaCollage. It’s easy, just click hereto begin.
