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 to the world than 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 career as a National Sales Manager 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.  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.

      I have/love your Quick Creations trinket box project in Crafts ‘n Things, Feb 2011. Have searched several times for the baby sentiment “I love you to the moon and back.” No luck from Hampton Arts site or from google searches. Can you specify source?

        It is manufactured by Hampton Arts for 3 Bugs in a Rug. If you contact me via email I will send it to you.

    I happened to see you face on the Pink Lemonade blog, AND you look wonderful! So, seeing as there was a link to your blog I hopped over and there are all three of you. I must confess you and Gary look the same, don’t either of you age at all? But Maxx (two x’s?), oh my! He has grown! What a handsome little man!

    I hope you are all well. I have been too busy with life to be devoted to design teams and still do some freelance work but mostly volunteer these days at our local church. Hopefully they will get a new pastor soon so I am free to play.

    Anyway, I wanted to touch base. Since your email has changed I had to write here. Do feel free to remove it from the blog. It brought a smile to see you all.

    Hugs to all of you.

      Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I just had a baby. I would try Micheals, AC MOORE and Hobby Lobby. If not there try Hampton Arts.

    I really like the napkin rings made with burlap and polymer clay buttons you made, but what did you use to make the impressions in the mold making material?
