Local Craftperson Helps Local Residents

How to deliver one-of-a-kind greetings to friends and family
Although many people are still enjoying the changing Autumn colors and trying to decide what their kids’ Halloween costumes will be, local retailers are already preparing for the winter holiday season. 
While most of us squawk that it’s just too early to think about those winter holidays, we eventually find ourselves saying, “I can’t believe I haven’t send one holiday card yet.”  Sometimes, it’s just another consequence of a busy life, but more often it’s the result of frustration from looking through box after box of impersonal holiday greetings.
No one wants to compromise on design or sentiment when sending cards to friends and family at the most heart-warming time of year.  Yet, this is what happens when shoppers rely upon cookie-cutter boxed cards emblazoned with impersonal messages.
Saco card maker, Tara Travis, believes she has the solution.  Tara wants everyone to know you don’t have to send someone else’s message when you would rather send your own.
As the owner of her own local paper-crafts business, Tara works with area residents, both one-on-one and in groups, to help them create one-of-a-kind holiday cards that stand out from the rest.
Tara believes a hand-made card is really the only way to say exactly what you want to say, exactly the way you want to say it!
“Just yesterday I was with my 5 year old as she made a card for her teacher,” says Travis.   “The care she put into it and the personalization is like nothing you can buy in a store; plus, having that time together I learned more about the relationship they are building. I love sharing this opportunity with others in my classes and home workshops!”
And if you’re interested in making enough hand-made holiday cards for all of your loved ones, Tara is happy to help.  Simply contact her at 207-590-8631 or tara@stampwithtara.com for assistance.  Or, visit www.stampwithtara.com to view some of Tara’s ideas.
