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

Basket Lady?

I received a call from someone yesterday asking if I was the "Basket Lady" because they wanted to order a necklace. I finally figured out that the Post Office gave out my business name to someone. I take all of my packages to the post office everyday in huge pink laundry baskets because it makes everything easier to carry. I choose pink because then my husband won't take them (everything has a habit of ending up in his garage; like my nice set of Williams Sonoma measuring cups!!!). So I guess I am known around here as the "Basket Lady". I guess that is better than Basket Case, or Bag Lady!!

What a fun story, and as you point out, better than 'basket case'!

BTW, that red Fiat is simply TDF, what a darling car, although I'm sure your spouse would not go for hearing it referred to that way!

Hope you are enjoying a happy weekend!
