Handmade for the Holidays ~ taradaramadeit

I am all kinds of behind, and have really done a disservice to those of you following the Handmade for the Holidays series. I promise it's not over, and today is a really fun one! Y'all, meet Tara Rex of taradaramadeit.

Here's the skinny on Tara and her creations:
I was born and raised in a small town in Canada, my mom and dad recognized very early they were raising an artist. Maybe it was my superior finger paint art in Kindergarten or when I was the envy of my {not so} fashion conscience friends when I made my own clothes in the eighth grade. As I and my talent grew, I received scholarships to colleges for my art but surprised everyone when I opted for an education in nursing.

 My choice took me out of Canada and to the United States to work as an RN in a level 1 Trauma Center in New Mexico.  My calling kept whispering in my ear and I continued to create and educate myself in the arts. Not only do I create one-of-a-kind sewn accessories, I’ve also studied faux finishing and mural painting, raku pottery, photography, and now, I so some amazing work with Play Doh, yes Play Doh. I am mum to two handsome little boys and married to my NM sweetheart.  I now make my art and our home in Colorado.

I love being at home, therefore, I have decided to work at home to be readily accessible to them at all times (I know, crazy, right?!).  I love to sew and have designed some great pieces that I absolutely LOVE.  I come by sewing as my craft quite honestly … my great-gramma quilted, both of my grammas sewed (one quilted) and they both knitted, my auntie is a pattern maker for theater and the movies, and my dear mom is a sewer as well.  So, I was destined to sew and good thing ’cause I do love it … did I mention I love sewing?
Did you hear?   Taradara won the 2011 Inventor Showcase at the Moms in Business Unite Conference in Denver for my iPad covers!!!
Did you hear this also?  Taradara’s {not yet released} iPhone covers are going in the 2012 Golden Globe Award’s swag bags!!!

People, seriously. This woman has some skills! You can find her on twitter, on facebook, at her etsy shop (which is running an AWESOME Black Friday sale of 30% off until Friday midnight), and of COURSE, on her blog. And really, how amazing is it that her creations will be in the Golden Globes swag bags?!?!  You can still order creations from Tara in time for Christmas! For those of you that would like to support Small Business Saturday, you can enter savings code SHOPSMALL and save 25% at taradara's etsy shop on Saturday, November 26.  Cut off date for Canadian Christmas orders is November 30.
