SHOP FEATURE: H0neyburn Cottage In The Woods!
My first shop feature! I would like to introduce you to Nicole of h0neyburn! As many of you already know, I am obsessed with her leg warmers! My kids have many pairs. I stole a pair from them to use as arm warmers and am in the process of ordering my own leg warmers and a pair of arm warmers with a thumb hole for me :)
Most people call me Nikki. I'm a simple kind of woman. I love God, my family, and good food. I have always enjoyed drawing and making crafts. I'm married to an amazing man who is also my best friend, and I am a stay at home mom to our one (so far!) 16 month old daughter. When I became pregnant a couple of years ago, I learned how to crochet so that I could make cute hats for our baby. I ended up crocheting adult leg warmers for my shop from that experience, which led me to learn how to re purpose new material into cute warmers for all ages.
What inspires me most is God and this amazing place He created. I love nature. I can sit outside under the trees for hours with the breeze in my hair listening to the sounds of wildlife around me. I decided to start making hair accessories out of faux flowers because of my love for nature. I like the way I feel with a flower in my hair, feminine and earthy.
I started painting in high school, forgot about it for a while, then picked it back up when I opened my Etsy shop. I like to paint dreams, topics that concern me, and moments in time that make me happy. My favorite time period is the farming prairie days before the Industrial Revolution. Many of my paintings reflect my love of these simpler times when families stayed together and fought for what was right. It seems they had more respect for the land they worked than we have for the land we fill with garbage. I try to find uses for any 'trash' I cannot recycle or compost.
