My name is Nikki and I am a office supply junkie. I admit it. I love beautiful office accessories such as pens, journals, pads and more. I want to share with you the beadable pen, which is the perfect companion for your planner or journals. This is such a fun and easy DIY. These pens would be the perfect gift for Mother's Day. Not only are they beautiful, they are made by you which will be extra special for any Mom.
You can purchase your beads from so many different sources. Craft stores, Etsy, Ebay and even in Tuesday Morning. I found some bead sets in Tuesday Morning for only $0.99! Make sure you watch my video below to find out what you should look for when purchasing your beads.
In order to complete your project you need the actual pen kit. I tend to love silver and gold pen kits, but they do come in a variety of colors. I typically order mines from Goody Beads and Karen Thomas Designs. They are affordable and great quality. You can also order ink refills.
In this video I share with you the process for making these beautiful beaded pens. In the description box of the video I also have links to where you can purchase the supplies if you would like to make your own. I had so much fun showing your the process. I hope you will enjoy. -Nikki
I am not a professional photographer or videographer. This has been such an amazing journey learning how to capture all of the things that I love to share on film. During this journey I have learned so much (and still learning) about videography and photography. One major thing I learned recently, is that having a organized and efficient camera bag is a must.
Today, I want to share with you how I organize my camera equipment. It has been working great and is very efficient when I have to film on the go.
I am always amazed at how one item can have several different uses. This is the case with my current DIY project. I love finding ways to transform plain silverware into a work of art. My recent adventure was to use nail polish to create a beautiful piece. I hope you enjoy the video where I share with you my process for transforming silverware into a work of art by simply using nail polish.
You ever start a project and immediately feel like you are over your head? This happens to so many of us. We all desire to have a organized home. Getting there is not always that simple for everyone. This is why I love my job! I love being able to share my home organization tips that have worked for me all of these years. Today I helped one of my viewers with her pantry organization. I hope my guidance was useful and helps get her pantry organized. I wish her so much success on this project.
One thing that is key before starting a home organization project is to have a plan. This is so important to help me sort out my project and ensure that I don't waste money purchasing items unnecessarily. In the video below, I demonstrate how I put together my plans.
In this video I help one of my viewers with tips on organizing her pantry. Sandy (the viewer) wrote to me and requested my assistance with how to start and complete the process of organizing her pantry. She has attempted to organize this space unsuccessfully. I give her my tips on how to organize her pantry to not only save her money, but to also eliminate her stress.
If you are anything like me, real plants are just not a reality in your home. I would love to be able to have live plants in my living environment. The only problem with real plants is that I kill every plant that I come in contact with. If this is also your reality then you can totally relate to having faux plants in your home. Faux plants can tend to look very artificial (which they are), which does not enhance your home. Today I wanted to share a quick tip on how I transform my faux plants (on a budget) to make them look more realistic.
In this video I share with you how I simply make a artificial plant feel more natural in your home. This is a budget friendly DIY that takes only minutes to complete. I hope you will enjoy.
I just love these "Window Shopping Wednesday" post. For my new readers, this is where I share with you some beautiful finds that I have located this week. The wonderful thing about finding these items is that they were all at no cost. Money is no object. Why? Because I am only window shopping. I love to window shop. Window shopping provides us with inspiration, without the pressure of thinking of price. I love looking at beautiful high or low end items and then finding a way to re-create the look on a budget. I always believe that you look at the best and then create it on a budget. Hot pink called my name this week. It is such a vibrant and motivating color. Using hot pink in combination with grey just gives such a elegant look. Grey makes everything elegant in my book.

I am working to add simple touches in my guest bathroom. One of these touches is a hand spa station. Recently, I was in a store in which they had (in their bathroom) a hand spa station set up for their customers. I was so impressed! Such a simple addition to their bathroom made such a great impact. This inspired me to add a hand spa station to my guest bathroom. It was so simple to put together. I used Sabon products which were perfect for this project. I hope you enjoy the video where I share how I put this hand spa station together. Have a beautiful day!
This week I had some people over to work on a great project. I wanted to ensure that I had a nice morning set-up as far as eats as they arrived. My belief is that when you are hosting meetings whether in your home or outside your home you should make it special for your attendees. With some simple tips this can be done with minimal hassle. In the video below, I shared on my second YouTube channel "At Work With Nikki" some tips to help you have the perfect meeting eats. Have a great day.
I recently collaborated with a group of wonderful ladies on YouTube to share our spring tables capes. Many of you know that I love preparing a fun and beautiful breakfast/brunch at the start of every season. This is a special treat that I prepare for my husband and I. I hope that you enjoy seeing this Spring seasons kick-off tablescape. The links to the other ladies videos is in the description box of the video below.
I received so many request to share my day with you in video form again. I did this a couple of week's ago and it was truly appreciated by many. So for that reason, I took you along with me on another day around my home. I hope you will enjoy the video along with I shared another GlobeIn unboxing (which is always a neat experience). Have a beautiful day my friends.
