June. The Shop: Sponsor Spotlight & Giveaway!


Hi! My name is Tara and I am currently living in a small town just south of the Twin Cities. The Hubs and I met in the summer of 2003 and on our 5 year anniversary we were married!  We welcomed out first daughter "Blondie" into the world December 2009. In February 2011 I opened the doors to my shop June! I am so happy to have this opportunity and I would love for you to visit me!

Here is some more about me:

In 3 words I am: mom, wife, sewer.
I can’t live without: my daughter.
My favorite Blogs are: Tugboats Photography Journal, Exploits of a Military Mama, and the always inspiring Gussy Sews.
This is how I like to Relax: Going for walks, or hanging out with my family.
My favorite Tv Shows/movies: TV: Young & The Restless (yes I watch soaps!) Movies: The Wizard Of Oz.
My favorite materials to work with are: I never thought I would be saying this because I use to have a huge fear of them, but zippers.
My Hometown: Farmington, Minnesota.
My favorite room in my house is: My Kitchen.
Because: Although it needs a lot of work, it's very open and serves many purposes.
My favorite vacation was in: This past year in Wyoming!
I feel naked without: My daughter! And also my cell phone.
This is what makes me smile: My daughters laugh and my husband playing with our daughter.
You may not know this about me: I moved from Michigan to Minnesota on my own at 17 years old.
My Worst Habit: Spending too much time on Pinterest.
I want to learn to: Knit.
My favorite item I bought from another shop is: Without a doubt my JessicaNDeigns necklace. I have been looking for a necklace like this for awhile now and it is simply beautiful!
My advice to other Etsy Sellers: Be patient and take risks. Building up your online store and presence takes time.
My typical day is: B.U.S.Y! With a toddler, a house to run, personal and two side business finances to keep, and running my own side business my day fills up quickly! But this is what I love doing!
I stay inspired by: reading my favorite blogs and browsing Pinterest.
3 tools in my studio I can't live without: My rotary board, my sewing machine and my Fiskars scissors!
