Happy 1 Year Anni to MBNL !!! I embarked on this small shop journey last April while I was on Disability from work. Although I had sold handmade items before, I never had a website for the public. Since I was a little girl (about 12 years old) my grandma made me business cards "Niki's Creations". I thought about sticking with the name but whenever a customer spoke about the maker of their handmade creation, they'd say "It's made by Niki Lynne". I used to sell more of my crocheted items when my shop initially opened last year. I learned how to crochet at a young age and started off making pot holders for my family๐I worked my way up and taught myself numerous crochet stitches and eventually was able to create my own patterns. As much as that's a passion of mine, jewelry has always been as well! I used to make crystal and fresh water pearl jewelry for my moms clients and friends! I never thought that a month off work, trying to make a living while also trying to figure out what was wrong with my body, would result in such a positive way! I've come a very long way since last April and I CANNOT thank all of you more! Without all 1,570 followers I wouldn't be as successful as I have become and continue to grow. It's not about how many followers you have, but how many of those followers that are loyal. Thank you again!
