About Us-Tara

THE FAMILY BEHIND TRENDY TREEHOUSE....

Hi, I'm Tara Johnston, founder & owner of Trendy Treehouse. Before children, I obtained my business degree and and knew one day that I wanted to be a business owner. Together, my husband and I have been able to achieve that dream with a successful construction business, but with this comes long hours of him being away from home.  We have been blessed with 4 amazing children.  They are our main focus in life.  So having him out of town a lot, was hard and we wanted a change. We took some time looking into what we could do and since I had already had a successful blog following, we thought, why not branch out and start our own little business.  

The Trendy Treehouse brand was born!  With the success of our blog, we knew that we needed to reach out in other social media areas and started really promoting our Instagram account with our new designs in May of 2014.  We invited in some very adorable brand reps and started our journey.  And thanks to all of our supporters, buyers, friends and family, we are on our way to having our family together year round.  No more traveling for daddy!

“We have a very creative family. No grass grows under our feet. I draw my inspirations from our family;  my husband, children and our extended family & friends. I love keeping my mind active, therefore I'm always working on something new.” - Tara

Some things that make us stand out from other brands are our unique designs, all designed by us and an always looking  forward approach. Because we make all of our own items, we can offer more designs than most.  We don’t have to wait for someone to make and ship them to us. We are also able to offer so many more personalized designs that so many of you love and hang on to as family heirlooms. 

Another neat tid bit we have a really fun app! Yes, an app, where you can dress up a little model of your own with clothes that you have designed.  The best part, when you are done creating, just hit the print or share option. You can hang up your own little creations. How fun is that? You have now become a designer as well.  This app now available in the AppStore. Search Trendy Treehouse to find the app! We are constantly working on new designs here in the shop and will update the app as we make them. We love this fun new way to help you become your very own designer. Its all very exciting and we can't wait to see what you come up with.

"Family is so important, and life is meant to live....So we choose to celebrate life by being creative, active and inspired by each other!” - Tara

 We are so thankful that I am able to be a full time Mom, while also bringing you fun designs to show off in your everyday life! Thank you for allowing me to do so.  We look forward to seeing you wearing our brand!

They have been busy sharing recipes, DIY projects, photography, reviews, gifts ideas and even hosting exciting giveaways.  In 4 short years, Tara's blog has grown quickly, gained numerous readers and has been contacted by many top chain stores to help them with advertising their store and products. She looks forward to continuing to share on her blog for years to come. You can find blog posts here on the website as we transfer them over from our old blog.
