Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Smart Tarts Learning friends!  I wanted to give a little "shout out" of thanks for your support, comments &, really, just for reading my posts. 
Smart Tarts was just a little dream my first year of teaching and actually had the name, "Nikki T Creations." That name was around for several years when I realized that if I was ever to begin to hone and sell my items, people who didn't know me would have no idea what a "Nikki T Creation" was. 
It took many days and nights to think of a new name ... I say think, but really it felt like it just came to me once I stopped thinking about it. Smart Tarts... that's what children are right?  Little open vessels ready to be filled with knowledge...just as a pastry tart is ready to be filled with jelly. 
Well, that was just the beginning... then I had to find a blog name, blog designer {The Honey Bunch Blog Design}, illustrator {Melonheadz Illustration}, facebook page, pinterest ... yada, yada, yada! {Thank goodness for my friends [Sarita, Doodle, Kat Attack, Collinzio, Jayce] and family [hubbie, my kiddos, sister, mom, dad, and so on...] and all of their advice, encouragement & support. I'm sure I was ANNOYING!!!}
 I am excited to continue growing Smart Tarts Learning and I am open to ideas for my upcoming creations: Gingerbread, Christmas & Snowman.  Email me or leave a comment.
I am thankful for YOU! :)
My girl and me!
My 2 boys!
I'll end with a funny little Thanksgiving poem that I found:
Happy Thanksgiving!

From my family to yours,
