Something New....

Today I created a Facebook Page to go along with my blog. I hope that all my followers (6 of you) will like that too:) Handmade by Tara is the FB page:)

I also created a new cake last night-I love the way it turned out and I was able to see the little boy when he saw it for the first time. I think he liked it:) Thanks Anna for ordering it.

New Creations

I was contacted a few weeks ago by a sorority sister from NIU who needed to complete her collection of bracelets. Each bracelet has a child's name and birthstone in it. It was my pleasure to create one with her youngest one's info. I have shown it to a few people and they LOVE the green that is in it, which is the August birthstone. What do you think?

My next creation is for my Grandma Viola. She is probably the only lady in my life who I haven't made a bracelet for. What is my excuse? Everytime I think about it someone is due with a new baby and that means taking it apart and adding a new birthstone. Even though my cousin David's wife is due in September I made her one. Hoping that little Josh will come in September because that is what I put on the bracelet!! I am sure Melanie would like him to also come on time or a wee early! On the "Great" part I have all Grandma's Great Grandchildren, and on the Grandma part, her 9 grandchildren are represented. I hope she likes it:)

Last but not least I am including the bracelet that I wear. I am sure my 6 readers have wondered what design I wear. This bracelet has each of our initials and then an R in the middle for our last name. It also has corresponding birthstones with the letters.
