Hi I’m Tamika, the creator of Love TL Hayden.
I’m a wife, stay at home mom to 2, coffee addict, and a lover of all things pink! I live in the southwest suburbs of Chicago and spend my days as a graphic designer,
blogging, and helping other female entrepreneurs while creating and curating fun hipster chic products.
My love for stationery, art, and design began as a little girl which led to a degree in Fine Arts and a BFA in Graphic Design. I started freelancing in my spare time, in 2006, designing for a broad range of clients, helping them to capture life's special moments, start their own business, and create lasting impressions through party invitations, websites, branding, and creative consulting.
I started blogging after others would ask where I found cool products, how I started my business, how I manage both mom life and entrepreneurship, and if I could help with creative ideas for parties, décor, and DIYs. I wanted to share everything I could and creating a special place online for it all felt like the perfect idea.
As time goes by, Love TL Hayden will continue to be filled with helpful and inspiring posts where I share my designs, the work of other creative souls, the latest must haves in home, office, life and party, brands I love, gift ideas, trends, and a glimpse into my life of being a work from home mom.
If there’s anything you’d like to see or any type of posts you love and want more of, always feel free to email me. I love hearing feedback and creating new things especially for you.
"Jesus is my homeboy. I married my college sweetheart. I'm a mommy to a 6 year old cool kid and a handsome baby boy. TuTu's, sneakers and converse are our thing. I grew up writing in diaries, obsessing over Lisa Frank, and collecting things like unicorns, trolls, gel pens, buttons and enamel pins. I love the color pink. Life is sweet with candy and sugar. I've never met a cupcake or color I didn't like. I'm down for eating cake for breakfast. I live for Pizza, Tacos, Fries and Brunch. I believe in coffee first and wine later. My desk is full of color, paper, cute stuff, and confetti (total nerd) and I do my work to the sounds of chicks like Beyonce & Rihanna. My Motto, " Love Life, Hustle & Dream" .
Meet My Family. The hubby is the dude who helps make sure things run smoothly over here. He also buys me Starbucks. Leah is my assistant, she's often found making confetti.
