I’m Nikki- an artistic, sassy, book peddling twenty something. Being crafty is a lifestyle for me and I try to bring my creativity into everything I do. I may be short in stature, but not on creativity.

Nikki from Fluorescent Beige BlogI am a Wyoming native, born and raised.  I studied scenic design and painting from the University of Wyoming, and after college, moved to Denver with my other half. I soon found myself working in an unlikely setting for an artist- a library. I have designed and crafted displays for my neighborhood branch for the past four years. Although my first love is painting, the library is where I developed my fondness for paper craft.

In addition to paper craft and design, I enjoy reading, pinning profusely, spending time outdoors with our rescue pibble Riley,  and the never ending task of renovating our first home with my incredibly supportive husband Thomas.

I would like this blog to be a reflection of my interests and my designs, but also a resource for other DIY-ers. For all the times I’ve heard, ‘How did you do that?’ or, ‘Yeah, it’s easy for you…’ I’d like to say, here- let me show you!
