The Artist

I am Tara, the artist and creator behind the designs you see here at Simple Blessings Design.  I am a wife to my fabulous husband, and momma to 3 sweet and spunky children, Liam, Noah and Adeline.  How my shop came to be, well that's a story!

If you have read any other pages here on my blog, you probably know that my first love is Jesus and my second is my family.  You also probably know that I am a "heart mama" to my precious son Liam, who was born with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD).  I grew up knowing art first hand, experiencing my first drawing lesson at only 4 years old, taught by my wonderfully gifted mom.  Through her art career, she has instilled in me an appreciation and a love for "creating" in the arts. 

Liam, along with my wonderfully supportive husband, encouraged me many years ago to start my "creating" career.  Liam's health journey as a baby prompted me to quit my full time job to stay home and care for him.  At that time, being a new stay at home mom, I wanted a way to contribute, not only financially, but also to have a creative outlet for myself. Coupled with my heart's greatest desire to bring forth His light into the world and proclaim His goodness, faithfulness and saving Grace through Jesus Christ, my Etsy shop was born.  This venture is the result of many, many hours of prayer and consideration.  I truly believe this is what the Lord has called me to at this time in my life and I am humbled and honored to be His hands and feet in this way.

God is the ultimate author of this success, and it is to His glory that I create.  For in Him we find our purpose and in Him we can rest in His provision.
