Nikki Sivils said...

Okay.... now you ladies are gonna make me cry with your super sweet comments!! I have some great people who have also been helping me with getting this business going that I have to give some credit to also, first is my hubby, Dan, who is working and helping run this business like he did his law firm, Heather and Vicki who I couldn't have done this as smoothly and quickly if they were not here to help. And a special thanks to my step-son Henry (who is 13) for never complaining about my crazy hours and having to make his own dinners every once in awhile! (of which he may actually like b/c he won't have to eat my cooking!)hehe Love you Hen-Pen!!! -Nikki

Bonnie said...

Hi Nikki. I love your blog. I was blisiting (blog visiting) today and somehow got very lucky and found your site. Your work is incredible and so is your lovely family. Your puppies are adorable! I have two puppies (1, pom and 1 pom toy terrier mix) and want to adopt a yorkie in August so I was truly thrilled to know that 3 puppies are indeed manageable. I am a self-admitted scrapaholic and a professor in a business school so like everyone today time is limited so again, thanks for helping me know my dream of adding to my pupply family is possible. When are your items up for sale? I must, must have the clear tree stamps!!! Thank you for sharing your talent.

Nikki Sivils said...

Bonnie- Thanks for your comments about my products!! My website should be up and running by June 15th so as soon as retail stores start buying my products then you can buy from them. Two of my paper lines will be for sale before CHA and the other four will be after CHA. I'll have a store locator on my site also.
And as far as the dog issue, I love all dogs, but Yorkies just have a special spot in my heart!! And there are thousands that need to be adopted and rescued. I'm not saying there aren't days that 3 dogs are a lot but at the end of a long day it's so nice be have one on each side of you and one on your lap!! So good luck!! Let me know what you adopt...
-Nikki
