Hi everyone... well I've been held up for days, no weeks designing my new Fall/Winter 2011 paper collections and I'm happy to say that I'M ALL DONE! They are designed and off to press! I've worked so hard on them pretty much 24/7 that I don't know know what to do with myself... its like I have nothing to do compared to a week ago when I couldn't see straight. I'm always stressed over the finals and at the last minute pull a full collection and redesign another in about 24 hours! I realize now that's my ritual... that's what I do, that's how the process works for me. But I'M DONE!!!

In this picture I'm at my old farm table that I've converted into my desk. I love it, it's 12 feet long!
And this picture is what I call my "Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker" loft, this is where I create my samples for shows, classes and to just play! But the white french doors go into my main office and craft studio that's shown in the magazine.
I'm so excited because I get to give away one copy of the magazine (Thanks CK & Megan) and I'm going to give away my "We Are Family" paper line because you can see that when these pictures were taken I had a set of the proofs on the floor in front of Bella before they went to press last fall.
Here is my
Leave me a comment on this post about your space, whether its your kitchen table, a closet or your very own room, tell me what you love about it and I'll pick one winner on Friday to win both a copy of Creative Spaces and my We Are Family paper line!
