I'm excited to introduce Stephanie of Tatorbug Creations today! You may have noticed the perky new look around this Nest over the past week or so, and Stephanie is the designer. Her work caught my attention on another blog, and after some digital correspondence - and drooling on my part over her fun designs and custom planners - Stephanie shared her gift and redesigned my blog. I love the new look, and she's offered to give another way! Read on to find out more ...
I was born and raised in a small town in East Tennessee. My grandparents were dairy farmers. They took their role very seriously. My Mamaw made it her mission to fill my time on the farm with precious heart felt memories. She taught me to sew, to cook, to clean (yeah, I didn't hold on to that lesson very well!) and showed me what it meant to really live for and love the Lord.
