- I will be featuring several local artisans in the upcoming weeks. I hope you enjoy learning more about them and their craft. Be sure to check out their shops and/or Facebook pages for great holiday gift ideas! Meet our first local artisan SweetDreams by Tara:
What would you like people to know about you as a person? I am a very hard working single mom to an amazing daughter. Who is always wanting to meet new ppl and try new things. I love working on my crafts esp my dreamcatchers. Or spending time with my daughter wether we are shopping, going out for dinner, or just sitting watching a movie or talking about life.
Tell me a bit about your art and your products. What inspires you? I was down on my luck as some would say back in 2006 and in a homeless shelter, A native lady came in and held a class and taught many of us how to make the dreamcatchers. I found it extreamly relaxing and comforting. When ever I feel anxious or stressed I start making them and it calms me. I love the beauty and variety that dreamcatchers come in. All you need is a little imaginiation and anything is possible. I love to teach others this as well as make and sell my as well.
How do you share your creations? Where can we find you? I have a facebook group where anyone is more then welcome to give feedback or to even add to the group. I often have specials, and post all new dreamcatchers I have for sale or for those I have made in the past. here is the link http://www.facebook.com/groups/198927503486240/
