Last night I made an Easter card to share. Today I hope you guys will enjoy plenty of food and time with family and friends. I hope kids will have baskets full of good things (and not all sugary). I hope the sun will be shining on everybody. And I hope everybody remembers who provided the families we are blessed with, the bunnies we get to see hopping, and the eggs that we get to color.
Easter Card – Homemade
Do you ever make your own holiday cards? A personal touch can mean a lot. Do you prefer store-bought, or something that someone you care for put time into?
The BibleRhymes logo, as with anything produced by BibleRhymes, is subject to continuous improvement. If things aren’t getting better, they are staying the same or getting worse. So whether it is a character in a BibleRhymes story, a line of poetry in a book, the logo, or website—areas to improve upon are always being taken into consideration.
Original BibleRhymes Logo
New vs. Old
Sometimes originals are the best. Most of us can think of a great movie that was followed up by a less than stellar sequel. Popular soft-drinks have come out with new formulas to replace originals. New isn’t always improved as this story of New Coke shows. New actors replace old ones for certain parts. Could anyone ever replace Sylvester Stallone as Rocky? I sure hope not.
Logos can be redesigned in significant ways, or the changes can be small enough that only the designer really notices. As with much in life, changes can have a million people cheering them on, or that many people giving thumbs down. The changes for the BibleRhymes logo were not giant. And I’m hoping for the million people cheering the new look on. But if your thumbs go down to the end result, please share why.
Over the next few days I’ll be posting new pictures I’ve been working on (for BibleRhymes and other children’s books that I’ve been developing). Since I’m a part of BibleRhymes, I’m subject to continuous improvement as well. And with that being the case, I’ve taken tutorials to test myself and learn some new (for me) tricks of the artist’s trade. Each time I pick up my stylus, I want to learn to draw better, or create artwork of a higher quality. And that is what brought about change to the logo.
As I post the new pictures, I will update this post with links to them. With a new Goliath, a race-car driver, a fur-creature, and a rocket-ship, I appreciate what I’ve learned and I’m looking forward to sharing it. And I’m looking forward to using my new skills to make BibleRhymes online Bible stories better and better (even though I love them already)!
Technology moves quickly. As soon as BibleRhymes came out with our first ebooks for our online Bible stories, we had to learn new programs in order to be able to produce a new type of interactive online book. Almost as soon as those ebooks were made available to the public, the process repeated itself again.
And though this post is an announcement of sorts; the new books for this Bible story series for children have not been “officially” released.
Content on virtually every page and post of the site has been getting updated. After a little bit more updating of the content while reviews from pastors are being gathered for the new BibleRhymes books, promotions will begin.
BibleRhymes hasn’t actively promoted a Bible story for kids in a long time. But over ten new ebooks have gotten to the final stages of development. That’s not counting that a number of the ebooks come in two versions (read the “Instructions” page for more information – music, narration, and roll-over action are involved).
Free New Books
Out of the new online Bible stories available now, one of them is a free Bible story. The free Bible story comes in two versions. It’s the story of the “Poor Widow.” This is a New Testament story of Jesus that is also known as the “Widow’s Mite.”
