A New Product Line at Taradara is HERE!

I'm SEW excited to finally have this announcement! There is a new "Hanging Hearts" collection in my Etsy shop!! They're funky, fresh, and I love the versatility of them!  You can use them in your bathroom, your guest bedroom, YOUR bedroom, your office ... You can give them as a housewarming gift ...

I got the word the other day that I will not be on Shark Tank for Season 4. {source} Am I upset about this?  No. I did not get a call back and they start shooting this week in to next week.  I went further than I ever expected I would in the process and I take great pride knowing where I started, the hard work I put forth, and where I've ended up.  Being on Shark Tank was the ultimate goal and I really wanted to go to the end, however, I at peace with the result.

iPad 3 Rumored to be Released Soon!

It's incredible that a year has almost gone by since the iPad 2 came on the market and there were lines of Apple enthusiasts anxiously awaiting the opening of the Apple Store's doors. That is all going to happen again with the soon to be release iPad 3. It's rumored to be on the shelves March or April 2012.  I have read in places that March 7th might be the day.  However, no official date has been released as of now. What's new with the iPad 3?
