So I just awoke from less than three hours of sleep. I am off to work and about to eat breakfast. I need to go out to Daytona today to find an 3 8X10's that I need and I also need to return a 22X28 frame. Hopefully the weather stays nice cause my BF and I have plans to go camping and cook hotdogs and nothing is better than that with him!!! :) Can't wait. Wish me luck with the weather!!!

Ok so as clearly started in the title of this blog, I am an idiot! I am sure at this point you may be asking yourself, what the heck did this girl do. Well I was walking outside this morning to go and paint in my bungalow. I happen to see a baby snake outside my door and thought it was really cute. I knew that my sidewalk was not the best spot for it and I have dogs so I wanted to relocate this little guy. So I jump over the snake to a bush and break off a stick. My genius plan at this point is to get the little thing to wrap himself around the stick by putting it near him. When I tried to carry out my lovely plan, he got pissed at me and raised his tail and started shaking it back and forth really fast kinda like a umm I don't know kinda like a RATTLESNAKE!!!! Then after he did that, I realized..... It does kinda look like a rattlesnake, but its only a baby what can it do. So I continue to try to catch him and he ended up getting away. I looked up rattlesnakes on google and they say that a baby rattlesnake bite is the worst. So I would just like to say that I should have my own show on Animal Planet for being so idiotic and daring.... right. Phhssssshhhhhhh

So tonight was a busy night. I finished up my project I have been working on for awhile that i am very excited about. I edited about 60 listings in my shop and watched two movies in the process. Phelam 123 and Blue Streak. I love Martin Lawerence, he is one of the funniest men of all time. I love how big his eyes get. Hes the best. I talked to my boyfriend a few times while he was at work. He gets off at 6am. Anyways, I am off to bed at a whopping 5am. I need better sleeping habits. Oh well. Night all have a great day!!

Ok, I was really looking forward to seeing Paranormal Activity. I got to say, it was pretty bad. It was really not as scary as I thought. But I have to say that when I am alone at night in my room trying to sleep..... its on my mind lol. I also saw Where the Wild Things Are. That movie was pretty good. The monsters were adorable!!! That is all for me today. Hopefully this weekend I will go see either the Stepfather or The Invention of Lying..... Probaly the Stepfather!

So I could not have asked for a better birthday! Camping was so awesome. My boyfriend and I had an entire campsite to ourselves. We had a fire going, an air mattress blown up near the fire like a couch, smores, munchos (best chips ever) and Sprite Zero. It was great. We took a walk around the campsite trying to reach the haunted house (The Princess Place), but we saw a boar, got scared, sharted everywhere, and went back to the tent. He also took me kayaking eariler in the day which was also fun as hell. We kayaked under a canopy of trees, thought we saw a gator but it was just a chunk of wood lol. We almost got rocked by boats and laughed the whole time. I can honestly say that he is the best boyfriend I have ever had and ever want to have. He truly pays attention to the little things I say and makes them happen for me. He is the best and I could not ask for more!!!!

Ok I am having a little problem with my window. It is mirror glass so when you are outside and try to look in, all you can see is yourself. This is a problem because a total of four birds have flown into the window and killed themselves within a two month period. The other day, I was washing my hands at my kitchen sink and I heard a BOOM at the window. I knew right away what it was. I took off outside and saw the bird lying in the bush but he was still alive!!! He was very scared and shooken up. I grabbed some gloves and got him out of the bush and held him for awhile till his heart was not pounding so hard. I put him in the grass and he flew away like nothing happened. This bird was lucky. I feel bad for the other birds. I am trying to find a way to cover the window to keep the birds safe. Anyone have any ideas? I was thinking mabye hanging plants over it but they could still fly around it!! Let me know if you can think of anything!!! Thanks so much!!! Have a great day guys!!!

So today I am washing my hands at the kitchen sink when I heard a crash at the window in front of me. I knew exactly what it was. I ran out side right away and looked below the window. It was a little bird :(. (This is not the first bird that has flow into my kitchen window but the other birds sufferd a worse fate.... They sadly died) I was so happy because he was still alive but he was really scared, shaking and stuck in a bush. So I got some gloves, picked him up and held him for a bit until he calmed down and than he flew away. I did my good deed for the day. I guess its time to hang something over my window..... I don't want anymore little birdies crashing. :/

Hi, my name is Nicole Suder but I like to be called Nikki even though nobody ever really calls me that. I am almost 23 years old and I currently live in Palm Coast, Fl. I have lived in Palm Coast my entire live. It's a very small town that was even smaller when I was growing up. Finding things to do was very hard so you really had to use your imagination. I think that growing up in such a small town was one of the reasons I turned to crafts. I have always loved making things. It does not really matter what it is, I truly enjoy creating something and seeing the end result. Any time I have ever made anything that has come with directions I have always added my own touches. I never like to do things exactly the same way someone else does. I also really enjoy taking something ordinary or old and refinishing it to make into something new and exciting. I think this love came to fruition while working on my first car with my dad. It was a total junker but I had huge plans for it. We painted it, swapped the motor, totally redid the interior and by the time we were done it was something we were both very proud of. I just recently sold my first car and that was very hard to do. I sold it to follow a dream. After working at two jobs I hated and going to college I realized that what I wanted to do in life what right at my fingertips. I love the computer, and I love making things. So I decided that my career goal was to start an internet business selling all things that I can make. Some people think that what I am doing is not smart and thast fine. I am the one who has to live my own life and I am the one that would always wonder what might have been if I didn’t follow my dream. I think people under estimate my desire and my ability to make a dream into a reality. Everything in life can be made into something positive or negative. I learned a long time ago that negativity will get you nowhere. I try not to waste a moment of my life in that state of mind. So, with all that said I recently opened up a store on Etsy called Nikki's Nifftys. When I first opened my store I was not sure what to sell. But after thinking I realized why not sell picture frames. I absolutely love photography and I love that fact that picture frames are a very easy way to transform a room. I think that the right frame can really help to showcase a beautiful picture. All the frames in my store mix vintage styles with bold and exciting colors. I studied color in college while pursing an interior design degree. I learned a lot about how color can make a person feel. It’s a very interesting subject. But in addition to that I love anything bright and colorful. I think that if someone takes the time to imagine a photograph in their minds than take that beautiful picture, edit it and get it printed or print it themselves than it deserves to get attention. Too often I feel frames are just boring, they don't help to draw attention to your photograph. Even if you do find an awesome frame, many times they are way overpriced. I don’t think people should have to pay an arm and a leg for nice frames especially in this current economy. That’s why my store has affordable prices and great styles that are sure to attract attention to your well thought out photographs. And for all of you that keep your photography tucked away for no one to see think about this. “It is hard to learn to live with vivid mental images of scenes I cared for but failed to photograph. Photography is a way of touching, feeling and loving. What you capture on film will be captured forever. It remembers the little things even long after you have forgotten everything. But tell me, what good is a memorable photo if you never take the time to view it?” Don’t leave your important memories trapped in a dusty old shoe box for periodic views. You should be able to view that images that make you happy everyday!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to read about me and my new store. I hope that if you have time you can take a look. It on Etsy and its called Nikki’s Nifftys. The direct link is www.nicolesuder.com. Thanks again so much!!!!
