Check It Out!

I don't do this very often, but I've been bowled over by an artist and I have to share.

Have you heard of Nikki McClure? She does things with construction paper and an x-acto knive that I can't even begin to fathom. I bought this on a whim the other day, because it was so beautiful I couldn't fathom not getting it as soon as possible and being inspired forever.

When I got it today, I checked out some of the rest of Nikki's work and just had one word . . . wow. She even made a (and Joelle might kill me for this) BABY BOOK that I like, as well as this, which you'll just have to look at because I can't even describe it. Can we say, hello, baby shower?

I love Nikki's focus on community and and the simplicity, rhythm, and hidden beauty of daily life.

In case you're as impressed as I am, here is the homepage for Nikki's store and below are few (or maybe more than that) of my faves.

Wow. That girl can do *something* with an exacto knife, huh? Incredible. Thanks for sharing! And I get why you would like that particular baby book. It's more journal-like than scrapbook-like. :)

Such whimsy! I love the lamp she collaborated on.

Fun artist. And it's so sweet of you to highlight her.

Lovely lady, I only laugh! Right now I'm on horridly slow dial-up, but I'll check out this BABY BOOK and other art when things are faster. Gotta be good if you're enamored! :)

What a gift she has! I really liked "a new materialism on the "Several gorgeous posters" link. Thanks for sharing :0)
