Sara Shaposhnik created The Balabusta's Daily Organizer in 2008 when she realized that, in addition to not showing most Jewish holidays, the inspirational quotes in the planner she was using were completely secular. Sara and her family are making aliyah, and are currently living in Ramat Beit Shemesh.
Ellene Newman creates the layout for The Balabusta's Daily Organizer, and for this website. She has been an instructor at Maalot Baltimore for the last 15 years, where she teaches Adobe Photoshop, Digital Illustration, and Publication Design. Ellene also is a space planner, specializing in design for kitchens, baths, basements and more; as well as for elders and special needs situations.
Ellene and her husband have 2 grown sons, one wonderful daughter-in-law and two grandchildren, with whom she has a daily babysitting gig...what nachas! To see more of Ellene's work, please visit her website at design613.com
