Hello! I’m Tara, a 28 year old girl born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada but now living (& loving) life in Portland, Oregon. I enjoy smiling, not taking life too seriously and being happy. I have a slight obsession with pterodactyls, my favorite color is purple and I’m terrified of sharks.
Dactyl Life is inspired by my love for writing letters and making mail art. After 10 years of making collaged envelopes and stationery by hand, I wanted to find a way to share my designs and inspire others to send snail mail, so I switched to digital collages. I design, produce and sell envelopes and stationery. All designs are custom made with paper scraps, illustrations, maps, doilies, etc. that I have collected over the years and scanned into my computer.
