It’s always fun to feature a blogger that I’ve actually met in real life. I loved our chats. I now wish we could have hung out more. After reading her blog, I realize we would get along great.
Come to find out, Tara was also at The Creative Connection last year and said she was too intimidated to introduce herself to me. WHAT? That’s crazy talk. Tara had a booth in the handmade market. She had it filled with all her artfully made products! She also was one of our SWAG sponsors. (Swag is the bag of stuff you get when you attend a conference. Someone once told me it stands for STUFF WE ALL GET)
Tara is a master at mixing fabric patterns. Her items pretty much vibrated, they had that much energy! I really really like her kindle covers……..but I don’t own a kindle. I’m thinking about taking up reading so I can get a kindle, then I can get a case. That would work wouldn’t it?
Had she known I too was a thrifty shopper, she could have blurted out that she got the jacket she was wearing for a few dollars! This is what thifters do. They blurt out the cost of an item like it’s a trophy! Drives my husband crazy and he doesn’t realize I’m not being rude when I ask my BFF how much her shoes were. Tara also has some great ideas. Like this Christmas one. I know it’s not even near Christmas, but you’ll want to tuck this idea away for next year. I think it’s a brilliant idea. Can you just imagine what it will look like when the kids get bigger? But why stop there. Just keep adding them as the family grows. My love for painting furniture may have just been replaced with fabric and mod podge! It’s a good thing she’s not my neighbor, because I’d have to take that table. Carpenters brass is a hideous eye sore and she has found the solution for us! I’m planning on just spray painting all mine, but hers looks pretty darn good.
Now I’m feeling guilty. I remember her telling me she was having her site re-done. Do you think she’ll mind me featuring her before it’s done? Or I suppose this means you’ll just need to go back and visit her again in a few weeks. Hopefully it’s still THE BEST DAY OF HER LIFE!
