Interview with Nicki:
Hi, My name is Nicki. I have been a self proclaimed DIY-er since I can remember.
When I was a child my family built two different homes. Now that I am older I realize just how much that influenced my desire/need to create. I remember scavenging for the snipped wires the phone man let behind to make my own jewelry and was recently reminded by my father that "you were the one who wanted me to build you a wooden purse when you were little".
The moment he said that I knew without a doubt what that purse was intended to look like. I still don't have my wooden purse but I'm sure that will come with time.
As one of 8 children my parents raised us to be self sufficient and inventive. I don't remember learning to sew or cook, I think I was born with those natural instincts. I guess that makes sense why I studied Apparel Design & Production in college.
I love to create. My "real life" job is working for a major craft retailer developing product. I'm grateful for this job because it allows me the means to pursue my soap making. Being self sufficient I like taking a step back from where we are to see "how it's made". I don't just knit or crochet, I spin and dye my own yarn. I don't just use soap... I make it myself!
Back to being one of 8 kids. Yes, I loved it... I always have a best friend around. Being from such a large family it was common to have the little kids take their evening bath together. Mom would send us off and shortly after you would most likely hear "I get the end where the water comes down" ...our version of "shot gun" to claim the warm end of the tub.
Those fond memories are what Where Water Comes Down is based on. Memories of Mr. Bubble bubble bath, strawberry shampoo and Irish Spring soap....feel good memories.
Right now I would have to say that my favorite scent of soap is Eucalyptus Ginger because it is so refreshing and really wakes me up in the morning.
When I am not making soap I am most likely working on the North Dallas Etsy Team, dyeing wool, spinning fiber, serving in church, watching Disney Channel or doing other crafts. I hope to some day have my soaps in local boutiques and spas.
