This is my second blog post today. For my post for Virginia’s View, please scroll down.
Today’s project is for someone very special – for Tara from Make The Day Special Stamp Store in the UK. We, the Design Team, have teamed up to surprise Tara with a few heart-felt cards (and hopefully they made it to her doorstep by now) to show our appreciation for her.
For those of you who don’t know of Make The Day Special Stamp Store – it’s one of the best stores to get amazing stamps, dies, and supplies here in Europe. For us over “here” it’s always a bit tricky getting crafty supplies because of import taxes, long shipping times etc. Tara takes care of all of that and offers us the products of great brands like Wplus9, Mama Elephant, Altenew and many more — just a few mouse clicks away.
Tara is running the store by herself. She has a day-job, a hubby, and a cat and she still manages to keep the shop up-to-date and provide next day shipping. She is tireless and we want to thank her for the amazing work she does. I know for sure that without her, I wouldn’t be able to craft with as many great products as I do.
Since Tara and her husband Rick love food, we actually wanted to go all food themed, but lo and behold – I don’t have food related stamps! No kidding!! So I grabbed the next best thing: a cat, since her furry friend is of course a great help when unpacking boxes and mailing out packages 😉
While the cat is from Newton’s Nook, the sentiment is from Mama Elephant and says exactly what I want Tara to know: that she is one of the most amazing people I know. Running a store isn’t always a cake walk, and I honestly wouldn’t have the energy or the patience to chase lost packages, deal with delayed shipments, or provide excellent customer service around the clock. She does, somehow.
So, if you want to show Tara some love, hop on over to the Make The Day Special Stamp Store Facebook page and leave her a nice comment, or check out the original blog post on the Make The Day Special Stamp Store blog and leave her a comment there – I’m sure she’ll appreciate it! I know that many of you have shopped with her and are very happy with her service. You’d make her day if you let her know how much you appreciate her 🙂
And since the entire design team is participating, check out what the rest of the ladies have created for this occasion!
Cheers and thank you for stopping by!
