Welcome to this humble maker’s place on the web. I’m Nikki B, and I will be your blogger for today.
I’ve been hemming (hah) and hawing (and hah-ing, it would seem) for an embarrassingly long time about my ‘niche’. Oh lawd, the niche. How does one decide on her niche when she has a habit of delving into far too many projects at all times and never quite focusing her time on anything specific at all?
I finally came to realize that the constant theme in everything that makes me tick is creating. I’ve been a maker for nearly all of my life. From writing ‘stories’ since I could first crayon a sentence together, to playing and writing music both alone and in a band, to discovering the finer details of my environment through landscape photography, to the past near-decade of my life sewing to sell and eventually just sewing for myself and family, the theme has been: Creating.
As it should be.
Creating, as my favourite author Kurt Vonnegut said multiple times in his writing, is “the way to make your soul grow — whether there is a market for it or not”.
The focus of this blog will be on both marketable and also hobbyist matters — be they fancy resources, suppliers, shared experiences, reviews, tutorials, or otherwise — as both sellable and for-us projects foster our growth, and each have their importance.
I hope you will find value in this blog.
I’d love it if you subscribed to my newsletter for updates & freebies, using the signup form found in the dusty pink box on this page. You can also follow me on Instagram, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Thanks for stopping by!
