My name is Nicolle and I am obsessed with all things hand made. I started with drawing and quickly got into everything from sewing, woodworking, and even silversmithing! I have been a project designer for Cricut for almost 5 years now so I love using my Cricut machines to make all kinds of things and teach others to be the creative selves they were meant to be.
