Wow, I can’t believe I’ve been working on this since the end of last year. I’ve been wanting to create a theme in honor of my mom who passed away in 2008. She was always encouraging and supported me in everything I ever wanted to do. Even when she wasn’t quite sure, she still gave me the thumbs up and said go for it.
The design inspiration for this was Elle Magazine. My mom loved magazines. She had stacks and stacks of magazines and she would kill you if you tried to throw one away. She always said, “I have things saved in there, don’t you dare throw that away!” You should have seen how many magazines I had to part with when she passed. I did keep a few favorites though.
She would be so amazed at how advanced our technology has become. I don’t think she would have given up her printed subscriptions, but I do know that if she were here – she’d have a Kindle full of them along with games installed.
I am not a designer, just a developer. Not the best developer and not the most advanced developer. I just know how to do what I do and when I don’t, I reach out to all of the wonderful Genesis folks for help. Which, by the way… thank you to all of the #GenesisWP Slack Group members for being so patient during my learning curve. I am still learning every day. And to all of the theme designers out there who make their main bread and butter from this – hats off to you! This was grueling and I doubt if I will endeavor to do this again!
