Have you ever stood in front of a rack of paper and wondered about the people behind the product and how it came to be? If so, then this week's
is for you. We are happy to present
Nikki has the greatest success story which all began with her love for scrapbooking. Many years ago Nikki became curious about scrapbooking which lead to a hobby, which developed into a passion, which gave life to a dream. Nikki began creating designs for papers and writing notes about ideas for embellishments. She filled up many notebooks with the hope of one day starting her own company. Her dream became real after Nikki’s husband, Dan, retired from the law firm he co-founded after 16 years of being a lawyer. Dan had desired to embark on a new career for many years. It was one of those moments in life where they knew a door of opportunity could be opened. Nikki and Dan asked, “If not now, then when?” Their deep desire to bring the dream into reality became so strong they stepped through the door and together devoted themselves to making it come true.
We love success stories and want to celebrate people who follow their dreams. How about it? Would you be brave enough? We are sure happy that Nikki and Dan were. And today, you could take home your own little bit of Nikki Sivils goodness.
With papers from her newest lines, you will love creating layouts such as these:
You can find more about Nikki and her magical journey on her blog. Nikki has put together a fantastic design team--they are certain to inspire you beyond your expectations. And don't forget to check in on their Facebook page. Nikki truly is as warm and giving in person as she seems in print.
Now that you have clicked over to their site and blog, you, too, have realized that Nikki and Dan are a sweet and well-matched pair. Rumor has it that there is quite a story behind how Miss Nikki chased the man who became the infamous Mr. Nikki Sivils. We hope Nikki stops by to tell us that story, but until then, we will happily settle for your stories. If you are in a relationship, were you the chaser or the chased? And if you are still waiting for that ship to come in, are you standing on the harbor? or driving the boat from stop to stop? We cannot wait to read the comments this week!!!
Comments will remain open until 8:00 pm PST. One lucky number will be drawn at random and posted tomorrow. Please remember it is your responsibility to claim your lucky number by midnight Saturday, lest that beautiful coach turn back into the squashy pumpkin!!
