Whimsy Love | Nikki Mans
The What’s What: Rather than spotlight complicated crafts for advanced crafters, this free-spirited mama invites us to learn with her (for example, she’s learning how to knit using a pair of pencils as hooks). Combined with her cool finds (like the easel forks sold in her Etsy shop), easy tutorials (like these party drink markers), and a touch of personal blogging (like her week-in-review Cheers and Jeers), this blog will keep you coming back for more.
The Mama: Nebraskan Nikki Mans is a crafty mama to two children. She balances blogging with being a newspaper reporter and great photographer (as noted by the killer photographs on her site). She’s also turned Whimsy Love into an Etsy shop, where you can buy handmade jewelry, soda-cap buttons and even a vintage Vegas board game!
