Lets find out a little more about NICOLESBREASTFRIEND!

     1.       Tell us a little bit about YOU.
I am originally from Jamaica. I have been drawing and creating since I was a little girl. I graduated with a bachelors in fine arts. I have sold my art with furniture stores, target.com costco.com and several private customers. I also do something called belly casting, where I cast a pregnant mommy and create art on it. All of this can be seen on my website, www.visualparadiseinc.com But one of my other true passions is sewing. When I was a little girl I remember my grandmother teaching me how to sew quilts before she passed away from breast cancer. I used to make little outfits  and diapers for my dolls while most kids would be outside.
2.     Tell us about your shop and or blog
My shop is www.etsy.com/shop/nicolesbreastfriends . Recently after having 2 little ones, I became interested in cloth diapering and eco-friendly ways to save money. I was spending a lot of money on disposable breast pads and decided to sew some for myself. I really liked the way they came out and decided to start selling them on etsy, along with other mommy/baby related items.
3.     When did you first begin to create?
I have always had my hand in sewing here and there. I guess I could say since I was a young girl.
           4.      How would you describe the items you make?
      Earth friendly, yet vibrant, hip, and fun.
5.      From where does your inspiration come?
      I have always been an artistic person, I have to thank God for that! I think a lot of my inspiration and what I am attracted to as far as patterns, derives from nature.
6.      What is your one most cherished possession and why?
      Hmmm that’s a hard one, I can’t think of anything at the moment, I really appreciate all that I have, If I could say one thing maybe it would be my talent. Why, I am thankful that God gave me this talent, which allows me to stay at home with my family and make money from doing what I love.
7.      What do you like to do when you are not creating or blogging?
      Spending time with family is important to me, we don’t have to do anything special, just as long as we are together.
8.      Tell us a little about where you live in this big ol world.
      I live in South Florida where it is sunny most of the time. I have only seen snow once and was happy to go back to the warm weather. Although I am thin blooded, I still enjoy seeing new places.
9.      Where would you like to see yourself in five years?
       Continuing to do what I love and being successful at it. Painting, sewing, creating…
10.     Tell us what your ideal weekend would consist of. 
      Going to the beach and relaxing, hanging out with friends and family.  And of course creating!!

Where can we find you?
