"Grow Your Blog" Blog Hop


Welcome 'Grow Your Blog' Hoppers,
It's nice to meet you.  I'm glad you're here, I look forward to seeing your blog too.


Name: Tammie Tusher Everly 

 A Little About Me:  I’m a Navy wife, a mother, a dog lover and an artist… mostly self taught, a life long lover of creating, making, experimenting and tinkering.

Style/Media:  Mixed medium, polymer clay, wire & metal, gem stone beadwork, resin, ephemera, assemblage, up-cycle, repurposing



I discovered blogging in 2009. We were stationed on the beautiful island of Guam in the Pacific and having a blog was a good way to document our adventures and a way for our families and friends back in the states to see what we were up to. Social media like My Space & Face Book were in their infancy and our older relatives weren't using it, but I could email them blog entries so they could keep up to date.  

 When we returned to the States, the need for blogging waned for a while.  I was now putting more energy into my artistic venues. I still really enjoyed reading the blogs of others for fun, inspiration and information ~ and I felt like sharing my creative process too. Thus TTE Designs blog was born. 
  
I try to blog at least twice a week and I have two pretty regular features, Pinterest Monday where I share great inspirational pins and Thrifting Thursday in which I discuss items that I have repurposed, up-cycled or reclaimed into jewelry, craft show displays, or home decor. 

I have been published in several magazines and I am part of the ZnetShows design team so I discuss those sorts of things and I also muse about my participation in different art shows and craft fairs.   I also have entries about our life as a Navy family, my faith and of course ...random things that are on my mind.

I appreciate the opportunity to participate in the 'GROW YOUR BLOG' hop and I hope to discover some new and interesting blogs to follow.  
I hope that you will find TTE Designs worthy of following too.  

If you're interested, some of my other venues are listed below and I'd be thrilled to have you look there as well.

**FYI ** In honor of this hop ~ I am hosting a give-a-way on my TTE Designs blog page from today, January 25 through February 15, 2014.

  1. Hi Tammie-
    I am doing some blog hopping for the party today and want to thank you for your comment. Your designs are exquisite and I am glad that I found you! I am looking forward to following your blog and finding some very inspirational designs from you. I have to say that your idea of Pinterest Monday and Thrifty Thursday have given me the idea to do something similar. That would provide me with 2 must-postdays. It's a great idea!! I will steal it from you if you don't mind. Not necessarily the same type of days. Again, thanks for commenting and following me. Dawn

  22. Hi Tammie! Thanks for visiting my site on the GYB. I've popped over here and found a beautiful new blog - yours! I love your jewelry designs and I have been making some ceramic jewelry recently. I just bought a kiln and am trying to get it in working order so I can fire what I've made. I'm looking forward to reading some of your posts and seeing what you make in the future.
