Summer 2017 Events & New Products, Hooray!

This summer I've had the chance to try my hand at some more event design, my second love. From time to time I'm lucky enough to have the opportunity to assist Paula Woods, owner of 14 & Hudson AND event stylist extraordinaire! Her talent is astounding and it's always an honor to work by her side(READ MORE)
Mother's Deserve More Than a Day

Mother's Deserve More Than a Day

The retail calendar is always a few steps ahead of the everyday, regular calendar. Which I have to say is an adjustment for me. I literally have to start thinking about Christmas in a couple of months. So strange. So about 4 weeks ago, I was already in Mother's Day mode, thinking of card designs and(READ MORE)
Let's Brunch

Let's Brunch

Spring has sprung. According to the calendar. Mother Nature hasn't arrived to the party just yet. But I have faith she'll be here soon with fresh spring blooms and a warm sun. As soon as mid march approaches I start to get really excited for outdoor activities, weekend adventures and summer planning(READ MORE)
The Process

The Process

THE STEPHANIE TARA PROCESS First things first, hey there. Hi, I’m Stephanie, it’s nice to meet you. I think you should get a feel for who I am and how I work.

Inside The Studio

Inside The Studio

Well I spent a decent amount of time getting my studio "picture ready" because as organized as I may be, things still looked sort of disarrayed. And I can't have that. We're having company (whoever is reading this and looking at the photos, you are the company). Welcome to my studio, located in t(READ MORE)
Pamper Monday

Pamper Monday

Okay well I won't sit here and tell you that Monday's don't suck. Because of course they do. Saturday and Sunday go way too fast and Monday's take much too long. So if we can't eliminate Monday's and we have to endure the terribleness, I thought maybe we could incorporate some happiness into the dre(READ MORE)

For those of you out there like myself, of course you love a good gift. I mean who doesn't enjoy being gifted? Crazy aliens, that's who. So when V-day rolls around you probably think to yourself, "hm what is my husband/boyfriend/girlfriend/cat getting for me this year?" And then you sit back and hop(READ MORE)
A Year of New

A Year of New

This post is coming at you a bit delayed seeing as it is already mid month. However, when I started designing desktop calendars I told myself I had to keep up with it. The end of December proved to be extremely busy and I realize thats not unique to me, more like for every single person who celebrat(READ MORE)
High on Giving

High on Giving

Will you just look at Luna? I swear she poses herself this way. I'm just lucky enough to sometimes have a camera on me to capture gems like this. I think, truly, I enjoy giving gifts more than I enjoy receiving them. My brief analysis of this is that I get to completely indulge in all the spendin(READ MORE)
Greetings, Greeting Cards

Greetings, Greeting Cards

Autumn 2016 has proven to be quite a busy one. It's been a time for learning, growing and expanding. We are making strides towards growing the greeting card section of the shop. What's more fun than receiving an adorable, one of a kind card from a friend or loved one? For me, personally, very few th(READ MORE)
