I’m Tara, a Jersey girl who’s been finding ways to be creative all my life!
I grew up making friendship bracelets and latch hook rugs, then began scrapbooking, card making and eventually studied graphic design. Professionally, I work part time in the web/marketing field, which is a niche I love!

After dating for 10 years, I married Derek in September 2012.
He’s a big supporter of me sharing on the blog, but will mostly appear here to do the heavy lifting, messy tasks and handyman work. (Oh and there’s that one time he guest posted!)
We’ve lived in our home for almost four years now but are always making improvements and working on updating our home decorating.
I’m not much of a chef, but I like to bake! You’ll find my attempts at cocktails, cake decorating and basic recipes in my Food & Drink category.
If it weren’t for the fact that I’d have to give up my weekends, I’d probably be involved in the event planning business since I love coordinated parties!
See some of the baby showers, bridal showers and birthday parties I’ve helped throw or weddings I’ve been involved in!
I love me some coupons! You can often find me on Saturday mornings searching my favorite coupon sites (Coupons.com, Red Plum, Smart Source) printing out coupons for the week.
In August 2013, we welcomed a baby girl into our family!
Baby topics, kid themed crafts and perspectives from a first time mom have now been added to my growing list of creative topics discussed here!
Last, but not least, I want to give a shout out to my extended family and circle of creative friends who humor me by guest posting, sharing features and being involved in the occasional party themed post.
