How Exciting! You are engaged to the love of your life! I cannot think of a happier time for you. Once the total blissful excitement is over, you may feel pressed to get busy and begin to plan for your and your fiance's day.
Have you set the date? How much lead time do you have for your big day? It is good to begin to plan for that day. Once your date is planned it is good to first and foremost to decide the venue, you will need to acquire and secure your venue with your date. Many places are booked a year in advance. Do you want an evening wedding, afternoon, or day wedding? Those are also important deciding factors.
What kind of suggested budget do you and your significant other plan on, or what the budget you have agreed on? It is good to have a "spending plan" that you stick to as Weddings are expensive. Many couples pay for their own weddings in this day and age, not depending on parents covering the cost of a wedding.
Have you started a Pinterest Board to get ideas, colors, style of what type of wedding you would want, and that tells a story about you and your fiancee? Do you want a Theme or a particular style of Wedding (Romantic, Rustic, Bohemian, Elegant, Woodland, Destination or even a Renaissance Faire style... there are many more. I would go to Pinterest, make folders, and start pinning styles you and your beloved really relate too!
Do you know what style wedding dress you have always dreamed of? Once you know that, it will also speak to the style of Wedding you are leaning toward!
I will be blogging on tips for your Wedding Planning and how to make is easier to chunk information and get your planning done in the least stressful way~
As you know I make items for Brides and hope you will contact me for your Bridal needs and your needs for the special people in your life!
Feel free to sign up for my newsletter so you can learn about special offers and new designs. i am happy to send you a list to follow for your wedding planning! :-)
Well is it happening, moving today from a home of almost 12 years to an apartment. Luckily we found one with an area I can use for the next three months for my artist studio. I will have pictures soon. Movers are coming today and lots of family help too! YAY! Our new home will not be ready for a few more months.
I have a new logo and will be using that for my website here, and on the new Etsy shop at Nikeebottalico@etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/Nikeebottalico). I have my web developer ready to start getting this site to match my new branding.
What a journey this is and a new adventure! I cannot wait to show you all. Thank you for taking it with me.
Lots of love and be around soon!
Notes from a mad artist [the madwoman in the attic] on a moving, when you own a small business, while maintaining your Sanity remaining positive! :-)
I am attempting to keep a blog diary of sorts of how to move…how to pack, learning to be more mobile, being creative and successful all at the same time! I will be taking pictures and sharing with you. I am very excited. I will also be showing you the new items I will be creating! I am very happy though and want to share the Joy! There was a YIKES though with oh my, I sold my home in a day! That means I need to move my home & small business to an apartment, then to the home that is being built.
I know first world problems.
I have also changed the name of my .com here to my actual to my name Nike E Bottalico.com [nikeebottalico.com] as I am the designer and maker of all that I offer. I am looking forward to you visiting my website for my new offerings.
There are lots of changes in my life right now. I plan on writing all that is going on as there will be lots of tricks and tips on how to move while still being (remaining) a creative person who is living out of boxes!
I still have my Etsy shop and may be opening another Etsy Shop too. Lots and Lots going on & I am totally grateful for it all. Right now though, I am running on adrenaline and coffee. I am attempting to sort out what I will need to carry with me to the apartment to create with and what I have listed for sale. I will be in a very small space in the apartment for a period of three months and know if I am not busy I will be totally bored! EEK.
Another question I have is what I will be able to create while in the very small space? I think I will!
With the home selling so quickly we were happy and shocked all at the same time. It made this move so real and since it sold that quickly it showed validated -- us we had made the correct decision.
Please visit the blog often for all the changes and the journey I am making. I will be keeping you updated on all the happenings even with my name change to my small business! Thanks for reading and commenting! Here is my new .com below!
Thanks for reading
lots of love!

This is my beautiful lady project that is a handmade bezel with a collaged lady with butterfly wings behind her serene face. She has some rhinestones for a necklace and also some iridescent glitter. I am weighing whether to make her a choker necklace with pearls. She is a beauty. Please comment if you have any ideas for her!
Here are other pieces that I have made the bezels and filled them with special items too. It is great fun to make these pieces.
thanks for coming. have a great blessed day
Love is in the air....
My most beautiful daughter had the most beautiful Wedding in April of 2014. The photographer, Tiffany Campbell and is just an awesome person who can photograph beautifully. She captured my daughter’s expressions and that of her husband’s also. You are able to see the love and their personalities shine through the work of the photographer. The wedding event happened at Mercury Hall in Austin, TX. I hope you enjoy her work as much as we did and that you will call on her for your needs! Tiffany is amazing! If you are getting married in the area, do contact her at her website.
It was a grand day and evening. I will be able to show you Tiffany’s photography skills on my blog and in the gallery of work. I am so pleased I can show all of it off! Over the next few days, I am going to sprinkle photographs on our Objectsandoddities website. Also coming soon is a collection of bridal jewelry all handmade by me...
Please contact Tiffany Campbell at www.tiffanycampbellphotography.com and you will be able to see all of my daughter and son in laws wedding with their two boys, my grandsons. She is local to the Austin, TX area, but contact anyway, it is not known to me at this time how far out she goes but she is Amazing!!
A lot of my inspiration for my Bridal line comes from the planning that my daughter did for her day. I am glad we can share this with you!
light & love
