I have always been passionate about designing and making meaningful gifts and keepsakes and was very fortunate to able to start my own business. Lauren Nicole Gifts (name after my niece) was started in 2004 and was a great way for me to have my own business, but still move around as an Army wife. My husband recently retired from the Army and we are now permanently located in Ouray, Colorado

What's in a Name?
I have had a lot of people ask me why my website is named "Lauren Nicole" when my name is Denise. I named my company after my neice Lauren Nicole, and I just love those two names, especially together. I always wanted a different name when I was little, but I will never complain that my mom named me "Denise". I have a twin brother and my grandmother pushed to have us named "Jack" and "Jill".....so glad my mom didn't give in. We would have never lived that one down in school; the joke of "Deniece" and "Denephew" was bad enough.
