Blogger Spotlight: Nikki McGonigal

Another great blogger to spotlight today.  And this is timely, as she just came out with THE MOST CUTEST eBOOK EVER. Which really doesn't surprise me, because Nikki, today's spotlight blogger, is crafty like ice is cold.  Her website/blog, Nikki in Stitches, has great tutorials on making crafts/handmade items, as well as a shop where you can buy crafts kits with all the materials you need to make items like handmade necklaces, quilts, etc.

Seriously. SO. CUTE.

Get to know Nikki from her "interview" below - and check out her shop. And eBook.  And get your CRAFT ON!


Nikki McGonigal owner/creator/head-crafty-person-in-charge of Nikki, In Stitches

I grew up in South Jersey, and my husband is from Philly. After making a few moves back and forth across the country, we are home, settled back into the Philadelphia suburbs and loving it.

I have two little ones. My son will be four next month, and my daughter will be two.

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor
Whatever has the most chocolate candy bits in it!

Favorite BAD band 
Come on Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners...I must stop and sing every word every time I hear it!

Best place you've ever vacationed
My honeymoon in Puerto Rico...loved every minute of it!

How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for about three and a half years. My blog turned into my business about a year and a half ago.

Why did you choose your blog's name/theme?
Crafting is in my genes! I grew up watching my mom and grandmom make everything they possibly could by hand. It's no wonder why behind the wheel of my sewing machine is my favorite place to be.

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging just to share my knowledge of crafts and also learn from other crafters. I was excited to jump into the crafting community!

What are you 3 favorite blog posts?
