Getting all ready...


Well "Nikki Sivils" headquarters is definitely hopping these days... we can almost smell the sent of CHA getting closer everyday!! I'm so excited and can hardly wait to show off my new collections!!

Dan and I are going to do it again.... DRIVE to CHA in Chicago! You'd think after our experience last summer driving to Orlando FL pulling a trailer of product and being car sick all 14 hours there and the 14 hours back home that we'd never do it again. Well we are!! But this time its only a 9 hour drive and no pulling a trailer now that we have a crate that ships to the convention center. The hardest part for me right now is leaving my 22 month old German Shepherd! For those of you that don't know we got a beautiful male German Shepherd (GSD), Nico is his name and I just hate leaving him now that we have FINALLY established that we are his pack! (This takes a while to accomplish, GSD don't take to people quickly.) But we've found him a great trainer that we love and she is going to keep him while we are gone. We also have a wonderful couple that will be staying in our home and taking care of our other fur-babies so I have nothing to worry about... but I know I will! :)
Here is a picture of my new man... Nico!

I was talking to Stephanie Hunt (owner & designer of Bella Blvd, go check out her awesome reveals for CHA) this morning on the phone and she wanted to know where all my CHA sneak peeks are for "Nikki Sivils"?? Soooo.... that got me thinking that I do need to show some more peeks for my 6 new CHA releases... so here is the entire collection of "My Friend Birdie" which is named and designed for my Best Friend Jill Warden, aka "Birdie" (she has bird legs)!!
Chirp Chat:
Fly High:
Shake a Tail Feather:
Jilly Bird:
Birdie Bubbles:
Birdie Border Strips:
Birds of a Feather:
Birdie Cut-Ups:
Birdie Crossing:
My 6x6 Mini Pad of Papers: (the 12x12 papers reduced down to 6x6)
My Brand New 12x12 Cardstock Stickers: (I'm so excited about this new item!)

Leave a comment here letting me know which paper is your favorite and I'll have Henry (My Kiddo) pick a # for the winner tomorrow morning!! I'll also have some upcoming giveaways on my Facebook Fan page so become a "fan" and you could win even more CHA goodness!!

I hope you all have a great rest of the week and stay tuned for more CHA peeks and updates!! -Nikki

*Nikki has drawn a winner....see here to see who was the lucky winner!!* :)

First of all: what a handsome young man you've got there beside you! He looks so strong and soooo sweet! He's quite large, isn't he? Nico..hehe...great name for a dog ;)

The bird papers look awesome. Really hope I'm able to buy them this time, as it's still very hard to find a shop that sells your stuff here in the Netherlands. Don't know what they can't see, because again I am very exited by seeing this new papers.

Love the bright colors and the prints.

Have fun at CHA!
