Hello everyone! My name is Shawna Peryea (pronounced pear-ee-ay…like the water) and welcome to Caffeinated and Creative. I have been dabbling in web design since I was 12 and have had a few other blogs. I am currently learning more about Photoshop and CSS! I am a former elementary school teacher that taught second and third grade. While I loved teaching and the kiddos, I left the teaching profession to grow more as a creative person.
As a teacher, I loved the creative aspects and organizing things. Making my own printables, tests, etc. was quite the norm. Several years ago I found Teachers Pay Teachers and it was a life saver! I spent hours deciding what I wanted to buy, and even more hours printing, laminating and cutting out so many amazing products. I had several friends suggest I try and make items for Teachers Pay Teachers so here I am!
A little bit more about me. In March 2014 I married a wonderful guy named Ben and after a long honeymoon in Europe, we got another big opportunity. The last year was spent working for his dad’s bridge inspection company. My husband is pretty business savvy and so we joined the boat for a little while to help the business expand more. We got to travel to a lot of different places including Texas, Illinois, Massachusetts, Florida and even Alaska, all in the span of a couple months. We hope to travel more in the future.
When I am not creating things for TPT or working on blogging, I
like love to read! I love psychological thrillers, mysteries and anything that makes me want to stay up all night reading. I also adore Disney, Harry Potter and other geeky things, singing (in the car only), Netflix and playing with the furbabies. We have one dog and 3 cats!
So sit back, explore and have fun!
