This week we welcome a new sponsor!!
About Nikki and how it all started...
Of course it began with a love for scrapbooking. Many years ago Nikki became curious about scrapbooking which lead to a hobby, which developed into a passion, which gave life to a dream. Nikki began creating designs for papers and writing notes about ideas for embellishments. She filled up many notebooks with the hope of one day starting her own company. Her dream became real after Nikki’s husband, Dan, retired from the law firm he co-founded after 16 years of being a lawyer. Dan had desired to embark on a new career for many years. It was one of those moments in life where they knew a door of opportunity could be opened. Nikki and Dan asked, “If not now then when?” Their deep desire to bring the dream into reality became so strong they stepped through the door and together devoted themselves to making it come true.
Our mission is to create wonderfully original scrapbook paper and embellishments by focusing on our imagination and love for crafting. We are a company that retailers can count on to provide new and distinctive paper and embellishments that will excite their customers.
I had the pleasure of meeting Nikki and Dan at CHA Winter this year. They are great people and im so happy to have them as a sponsor with us!

A little about Nerina....
I live in rural Canada with my wonderful husband and four children. Art and creative hobbies have always been interesting to me. In my younger years, hours were spent doodling, practising curlicues for handwriting and trying out calligraphy which later was replaced with painting and sketching. I started scrapbooking after the children were born, but found it almost impossible to keep up with any of my creative pursuits as time became more and more elusive and precious! More recently, I developed a passion for card making and simply cannot get enough of it! It's a wonderful way to create things regularly and it revives those old creative interests again in a new form. Their small size also means that I can usually finish a project in the same sitting as starting it - a huge plus if your life is a bit busy :0)! It's amazing to think that what started as a creative outlet in my out-of-the-way life, is being shared on Wee Memories this month! Woohooo, I'm *so* thrilled -thank you!
And here are my cards! I used the SUPER CUTE "It's Raining, It's Pouring" from Nikki Sivils. This is one of my favorite lines!!
