TumpusCreations: Etsy's (Mostly) Undiscovered Talent

Today I would like to take a moment to introduce you to my dear friend Tara. She's been on Etsy for about a year, hence the 'mostly' undiscovered, but I'm unveiling the secret of TumpusCreations today! I honestly don't know how this woman does it, as she has two small (and very, VERY adorable) children at home, and manages to sew some of the most awesome things EVAR, from wristlet key chains to purses to bibs and kids items!! She also does embroidery. Anything in her shop can be personalized. Last time I talked to her, she was recovering cushions for wicker furniture. She really CAN do everything, and is today's Wonder Woman for real!

Those of you with children will definitely want to check out her extra cute, embroidered art smocks! This one with the piggie is my absolute favorite, and they can be personalized with anything you want! These would make great gifts for your kids or grandkids this year!

But I have to be totally and completely honest. The one thing that I'm really holding out for (here's the big hint hubby) for a birthday present this year is one of the wristlet combo packs. These are totally awesome. Who doesn't need a matching wristlet key fob and pouch wallet? In fact, this Garden Petal print is one of my favorites! If you have lots of teachers to buy for, a wristlet would be a great gift also! Teachers are always misplacing their keys!

So get over to Tara's shop today, and start your Christmas shopping, there are only 69 days left until Christmas you know! (EEEK!) You can pick one up for yourself too while you're there! Better yet, is she does custom orders, so feel free to request a special fabric, color, or even if you have a yearning for something you don't see in her shop, give her a holler. I swear, she is a mistress to the sewing machine, and can do anything!
