Its FRIDAY & I have lots of giveaway info...

for you all!! For those of you who went over to Write. Click. Scrapbook. yesterday to win the giveaway they were hosting, had to answer a question about how you met your spouse/partner.  I loved reading the comments about who was the chaser or the chased in the relationship. So I thought you all should know the story of how Dan and I met...  He Chased me by the way! :)

Here's the real story....
We both were volunteering for an organization called "Lost & Found", it's a place where kids and adults come together that have had a parent or spouse die. They can go to just talk and be with people that have experienced the same loss in their own family. I worked with the adults that had a spouse die and Dan worked with the kids that had a parent or both die. 

So one evening after a weekend "workshop" he CHASED me down and asked me if I'd like to get coffee. Well, he was an attorney and I had said that I would never date 1. an attorney 2. a doctor or 3. a car salesman... well you see how far that got me, I married the attorney!! (Poor thing... now he's in the SB business! He says I've forever changed him... lets hope in a good way!) Any-who... I did think he was pretty cute and I had heard from another lady that volunteered with us that he was the nicest, sweetest man ever. Hmmm.... well why not, it's just one cup of coffee, right! Well about 6 hours later we said goodnight to each other outside a coffee shop! I walked away and thought "Wow, so that's what my husband will look like!" Then we were engaged 6 months later and married 3 months after that. When you know its right then why wait! We've been together for 7 years now and he really is my very best friend and my husband!! 


This sweet online store is hosting a "Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker" giveaway!  Claudia the owner of "A Crafty Little Place" is so nice, I met her at CHA! So stop by and leave her some love so you you can win all the goodies she's giving away! 

I (with the help of some other great ladies) have decided to re-vamp and give the company Facebook page a new look that we'll reveal Monday, October 18. In the mean time go check out the fan-page and find out how you can win a bunch of "Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker" goodies for the big reveal! 

 I'll leave you all with a layout that I did about my new dog, Nico.  I just adore him! 

Have a great weekend! -Nikki
