Our First Blog!

Welcome to GatHERed…a blog that is in conjunction with mine and my sisters business, Gathered -a Boxed Collection. This is a HUGE month for Gathered -a Boxed Collection we are not only presenting our new Subscription Box Business but presenting this BLOG as well.  It is important for Tamara and I to be able to communicate with out customers, our friends and family and this is a great way to do so.


Here are some tidbits to get  you to know myself and my twin sister Tamara , who is much older than me, 8 minutes to be exact. 

I am  Tanja, a recent college graduate, business owner and a single mom! My son Cohen is ten-years old, you will see him pop up on our social media and around our website.  He is undoubtedly the love of my life.  He is the shiniest human I have encountered, he’s witty, kind , sweet, cheeky and irresistible-he’s everything I aspire to be when I grow up. I am in my late 30’s and I have earned every year, month and moment.  What the last few years have taught me is to never give away moments that there will come a time where they can mean more than you ever considered. What else about me? I have a sweet teeth, I love vintage everything and my favorite holiday is Halloween.

My sister Tamara who is the brainchild of Gathered -a Boxed Collection who is my twin, my best friend, the ‘Amy Pohler to my Tina Fey” who has been an esthetician for 18-years, she has a heart that yearns to travel and she never met a dog she didn’t love.  She is a fur-Mom to Emme, our lovable cross mix bulldog and pitbull who is never far from Tamara’s side.

Gathered -a Boxed Collection was an offhand idea that started this past May and then quickly gained momentum-and now here we are! Its launch time….STAY TUNED for our next post highlighting the journey that has become, Gathered -a Boxed Collection!

Gathered with love

Tanja (and Tamara)
