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!

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?
- My #1 has to be Nikki, In Stitches - A Handmade Holiday (http://www.nikkiinstitches.com/nikki-in-stitches-a-handmade-holiday/) In the post I release my first ebook! It contains simple, yet beautiful holiday projects to help make your holidays even more special this year!
- My Halloween Candy Jars are a sentimental favorite this time of year. (http://www.nikkiinstitches.com/spooktacular-halloween-candy-jars/) They are the perfect quick project for Halloween and can quickly be taken apart and put back together for any holiday!
- I was recently named Martha Stewart's Doer of the Week and the post I wrote about the honor is close to my heart. (http://www.nikkiinstitches.com/nikki-in-stitches-is-martha-stewarts-doer-of-the-week/) It gives a quick recap of my journey from hobby crafter to small business owner...and what a ride it's been!
Thanks for sharing, Nikki!
So many great blogs to read - if only there were more hours in the day! More spotlights to come...
Have a great Friday!
