Hey from Wisconsin! I'm Tara, the one-woman show behind Cracked Designs. I'm an expert at making small talk awkward, and think fart jokes are hilarious. I'm great at parties. And even better at sarcasm.
C.D was born back in 2008, where I started drawing up each card design by hand and coming up with weird and punny ideas. Most of our cards feature hand embellishments like fuzzy felt, moving pieces, glitter and more. These elements make each card a tiny work of art that are full of love. Our cards are all printed on eco-friendly recycled card stock, and are best appreciated in person, so you can take in the handmade touches firsthand.
This little company has always been a strong and mighty one woman operation - run by me: a mom of two little boys and a full time K-8 Art Teacher! Because of my commitment to the amazing young artists I get to work with everyday, C.D. has evolved and morphed over the years - from the full time design and wedding stationery studio, to now a smaller passion project where I get to focus solely on my wholesale stores.
I pour everything I have into C.D. Each design that goes through my hands is a little part of me - weird, maybe a little bit funny, and love milking that potty humor for all that it's worth.
Other tid bits: I love music, my A-Frame cabin, hiking, road trips, eating too much cheese, painting, local breweries, and scary movies.
