There is one thing I love about being in the crafting industry more than the wonderful friends I have made.  I have friends all over the globe.  Granted I only get to see them twice a year at CHA.  Well, most of them that is.  Lauren, one of my friends from the Designer Section of CHA is teaching in Columbus this weekend and I am going to meet with her for the afternoonon on Thursday.  Hopefully Carla can join us.  It would be the cherry on top if she could.  Lauren is one of those fun individuals that is always the life of the party and you never know what she is going to say next.  I feel so lucky to have made so many friends.  I think having online friends will help with the move since I  will not soley be relying on in person friends.

I created the notebook to carry around at CHA and I left it in my car.  Maybe I will save it for Summer CHA since the colors are just right.

Friend, Wife, Mom and an all around crafty old soul. Artist, Writer, Creative Director and Style Maker. Lover of old, fond of the new. Craver of excitement, establisher of the calm. My website Bio- Growing up in a small mid-western town, Niki Meiners was surrounded by a modest, resourceful and very entrepreneurial family. Her simple upbringing spurred her "Can do" attitude and gave her the confidence to try any challenge placed before her. She knew there was more out there than just her small town and set off after high school to explore the world. It was through these travels that she discovered her love of art and her desire to make the world a prettier place. It was not until she suffered a paralyzing illness that she realized she wanted to reconsider her corporate career as a Chief Paper Pusher, and her thoughts immediately turned to her first passion, art. In 2003 she began an odyssey that would take her from product design to publication and everywhere in between. She is known for her distinctive, high quality creations that feature a diverse mix of styles and highly creative approach to even the smallest detail. Niki is an Idea Architect, easily outlining every project from concept to completion. Her creations are simultaneously beautiful and functional and her in depth knowledge of the industry allows her to produce projects with a specific understanding of both the consumers and the manufacturers. This knowledge has allowed her work to be featured in the industries leading craft and lifestyle publications and manufacturers’ websites. nikimeiners at
