The Kira Nichols Etsy Shop

Plenty more to see at! Bookmarks, planner clips, digital stamps, ornaments, and many more unique gifts. Thanks for supporting this artist!

Welcome, New Followers :D

I'm still in shock over how much traffic those Wicked Witch Bookmarks have generated. I'm humbled that so many folks here on the internet have taken such a liking to one of my thingies! Anyhoo, this little blog has gotten almost SIXTY new followers in the past week! (New followers, THANK YOU for hitting that "follow" button! You are the coolest!) I thought I'd do a little welcome post to kinda show what kinds of stuff I like to craft, and link below so you can see more like it.
I'm a big fan of inchies! This is a tiny 1" by 1" art book made with watercolor paper scraps and doodles of robots. (For more like this, check out posts labeled inchies)

Here's an embroidery I made of a sea monster! I love cryptid animals like the yeti, seamonsters, bigfoot, etc, so sometimes they end up in my crafts. For more embroidery, check out posts with the embroidery label.

This wee house was made for a craft swap on! I'm a huge fan of the Craftster community and am fairly active in the forums there. My username over there is Noooitaremybirthday! (for more papercrafts like this house, go to misc papercrafts label)

I'm known to dabble in art journaling and altering books... Collaging can be pretty dang fun. Check out the art books label.

More on my monster fascination! A plush yeti and a woven monster made from fabric scraps. More plush here!

And now watercolor painting and illustration! This is probably tied with papercrafting as my #1 favorite thing to do :) Someday I want to write a kids book and illustrate it, too. For more of my paintings, check out the paintings/illustration tag.

So that's just a sample of the crafts I do. If you want to see more of the other tags, you can find the "Categories" box in the right hand bar below the pic of the red lady saying "Shhh." I hope you deem the time you spend browsing my blog as moments well spent!

In other news, I'm going to be a BUSY woman. We're moving at the beginning of June to a beautiful house about 15 miles away!!! So between that and Wicked Witch Bookmark orders, my days will be full. I'm waiting on supplies to arrive to make the legs, and they should get here today. Yesterday I spent a good amount of time making teeny tiny red shoe bows.

And hey, if you want to be on the e-mail list to be notified when the next batch of pre-orders will hit my Etsy Shop, you can either comment your e-mail address here or shoot me an e-mail to kira (at symbol)! It'll be as soon as I finish making the first batch of ten, most likely in the next 2 weeks.

Well, have a splendid weekend! And happy Thursday!

I love all your works, but my favourite of this post is the illustration with the cat and the mouse! :D
