I’m Tara, a Jersey girl who’s been finding ways to be creative all my life!

Handmade Cards using circle punches and scrap paper | spotofteadesigns.com

I grew up making friendship bracelets and latch hook rugs, then began scrapbooking, card making and eventually studied graphic design. Professionally, I worked full time in the web/marketing field, which is a niche I love!

After dating for 10 years, I married Derek in September 2012. He supports me and my blog, but will mostly appear here to do the heavy lifting and handyman work. :)

We’re new fairly home owners so you may see some of my attempts at home decorating amongst my crafty blog posts.

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.comRed Plum, Smart Source) printing out coupons for the week.


In August 2013, we welcomed a baby girl into our family so 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.

Thanks for visiting!
