About

So about me.. I make jewelry which I sell for my business Niknak Creations. I am also an art major, I paint, sketch, design, and dabble in multi media arts. My fiance makes the most wonderful candles! I have a soon to be s/daughter named Niki just like me Happy We have a blast together. We also have 2 pugs, 1 japanese chins, and on 6/16/08 we added a 2 lb pomeranian named Mackenzie who is a special needs puppy. I'm always trying new things, in fact taught myself on making jewelry and crocheting.

If you are going to dream..dream big!


I'm just getting the hang of the tutorial thing so stop on by and see my latest here and there Happy. I love new friends to share crafting ideas with and love getting feedback. Don't worry over leaving your opinion. Constructive criticism is good!
...
Believe it or not I'm a tomboy! I make jewelry but I rarely wear it. lol Makes sense right? I wouldn't be caught dead in a dress except my wedding day and I'm still debating. I would rather be curled up with a comic or gaming that go shopping. I love gaming. If I'm not on my ps3 or wii or ps2 than I'm either on my ds or psp or they are within grabbing distance Happy. Im an avid reader, a logic puzzler, and a math geek. I love being different. I love people who are different. That me!

...
I'm a feminist. I have strong feelings on certain subjects.
...
I am madly in love!

Hi Darling Niki, you're right, about making holes, but with a hamer and a spike it will go easy, you must only uses some wood underneat.
Only the smoothing, thats not so fun, but,,,,, i love still botlecaps, The plastic ones too, it looks like a kind of addicting, but i don't save them any more, because i will get moving.;-D i must clean my materials.=S
i had try out too differend hole making tools like you.
by the way thanks for your comment on my project cheers and have a fun great crafting week.;-D

I see that you're getting married on Halloween. That's pretty soon! I'm actually obsessed with weddings, especially "offbeat" ones. I imagine you've been to offbeatbrides.com? Anywho, sorry to bother you, but I just got all excited when I read that in your profile.

That is just too uncanny. Do you ACT like an aquarius, too? I've got the spontaneous part down to a T. I often jest that I am so spontaneous that even I don't know what I am gonna do next until AFTER I've done it! LOL Tongue

That is so weird! It is like you are another ME!!! In so many ways!!!

"Hi. I'm Niki. I have a pom. I'm a tomboy that makes girly crafts that people love, even tho I don't wear them. I am engaged to the best guy in the world. I'm contemplating pants for the wedding. I hate shopping, and love gaming. I like reading, logic puzzles, and math. I like being different, and I have strong views." Think that's you talkin'? Think again! LOL

I showed your profile to my fiance and he thought I was showing MINE!!! LOL

Well nice to meet you, Self! LOL

Thank you, I love the pictures of your old dog (with you) and now your newest puppy. So cute!!! I sooo want a puppy again. I love puppy breath, you know before it becomes dog breath. How old is Mackenzie? Boy or girl? Angel's old (like 9 or 10) and she's a girl. She also has no teeth, but we don't like to tell her that, it upsets her. Happy She chews on everything! Still!! But we love her.

Thank you. I'm also a bit of a math geek, so the directions are hugely helpful. For some reason, the math just never occurred to me, but it makes so much sense. I'm sorry you have been ill, I hope it isn't serious, and that you are feeling better.

Thats what I usually end up doing, just making something I would like, or if I have someone in mind, use their favourite colours. Thing is I usually buy the things that I like haha which is mainly black or purple, so I have tried to step outside the box and buy different things, I got some lovely turquoise shell beads, I used one in a bracelet for a friends bday present next month. I can't believe I am already ahead of that! I am usually last minute girl lol

I end up giving the things I make away to my friend, just because or they hoarded in my drawer haha I never wore much jewelery until I worked in an accessory shop, since then Ive had a huge collection of costume and beady jewels. I have to have something on, mostly casual stuff though.
I would love to sell things I make, but I find it hard to make something if I don't have a person in mind. hmm

Your a tomboy? You make such pretty jewelery I wouldn't have guessed that. Do you sell them then, if you don't wear them? I see you have an ebay site, so I presume you do :-D
My problem is, I want everything I make, instead of giving them as the gift they were supposed to be! haha

Hmmmm maybe we are not so different? I love doing algebra because I feel it is just a puzzle with numbers and love to figure them out! I just got a PS3 for Christmas and LOVE it! There is a new game coming out I think in Sept called Little Big Planet That I think sounds like a blast! It is here http://ps3.ign.com/objects/856/856680.html Let me know what you think.
