Designs by Nicolina...

I would like to introduce you to one of my greatest friends, Nicole.  Nicole is the owner and designer of the adorable company, Designs by Nicolina. Nicole’s  shop specializes in stationary, invitations, and home decor.  This week, she was selected by Brickyard Buffalo to feature her adorable chalkboard prints. I will let her tell you more about that though.  Take it away Coco!

I am Nicole.  I am a craft-doing, coffee-drinking, vintage-loving girl who is married to her best friend and living her dream!  I knew I wanted to design stationary and other pretty things ever since I was little.  What started as a hobby and then a side job turned into my full time career and my husband's side work.  I am the designer behind Design's by Nicolina on Etsy!

What you might be interested to know is Jenn's wedding got me started designing invites and thinking about it as a business.  I was hosting her lingerie shower and couldn't find anything I liked to fit the vintage pin-up girl theme.  At the time I was going through graphic design courses and I realized if what I was looking for wasn't available I needed to create it!  I opened my Etsy shop with 5 invites available as 'printables' and since started offering printing, stationary and art prints.  I was able to quit my day job and I have taken up a room and a half of our house with my office/studio/warehouse.  I love getting up and doing what I love everyday.

Thanks Jenn for featuring me on your blog.  We have known each other for a long time and you have always been one of my biggest fans!

RUN over to the best, most unique daily deal site, BRICKYARD BUFFALO and pick up one of my chalkboard art prints.
Only a limited quantity is available for a limited time, and I don't plan on doing these often!  They are discounted from $15.50 to $8.99, even the shipping is less!
