About - The Heart Department



Hi, I’m Tanalee, and I'm SO GLAD you stopped by!

My path to becoming a Handmade Artist was unlit and unpaved, to say the least.

When I transitioned out of the Army in 2007, I was not aware that there was a name to the paralyzing feelings of social awkwardness and inadequacy that I felt.  I tried many jobs including over the road truck driving, but each job left me feeling more and more defeated than the last.  I needed to find something that was rewarding and didn’t require me to leave my three children at home or to live in constant anxiety. 

Owning a handmade business that I can do from the comfort of my home has filled my life with purpose and passion.  I think of myself as a creative and compassionate soul and I’m so grateful that I can use my creativity every day to serve my family and my customers with the love and empathy I feel on a soul level.

I am thankful every day for the gift of doing what I love while still having a chance to serve.  

 You can keep up with me on Instagram or Facebook.

I’m Eternally grateful that you stopped by!
