I'm a wife & a mom & currently live in Richland, WA. The family & I spent the last 4 years in Nebraska, where the Mr. pastored. We are newly back "home", near family. Closer to cousins & grandparents & aunties & such.
Besides being a mommy (which is the hardest, best, most frustrating, & amazing thing I've ever done), I'm also a writer (I used to be an award-winning columnist for a small-town newspaper. Now I'm dedicating my thoughts to this blog.), & I own an online shop full of handmade whatnot's, called WhiMSy love.
I absolutely LOVE making stuff. And I can't seem to stick with one creative thing. My crafty life is all over the place! I like knitting, painting with watercolors, doodling, crafting with buttons, gluing things to other things, using vintage books in projects, & handling a power tool or two. And etc.
Other hobbies include photography (TTV + polaroid too, & I'm a CRAZY jumpy photo nut!), stop-motion animation, writing, thrifting, cooking, baking, & going on spontaneous adventures. I've also become quite addicted to the smartphone app, Vine. Fine me on Vine: Nikki Mans
This blog is bits of me as a mom + my kidlets + crafting + the super random & silly.
The 37 Random Acts of Kindness I did for my birthday has challenged me to be more conscious at making kindness a part of my everyday life.
My desire is to be a loving person, live a simple life, use my creativity to inspire others, get more tattoos & eventually be brave enough to dye my hair one of the colors of the rainbow.
