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

Dumpster Diving for Charity
If you have read some of my other posts you know how much my husband loves to pick through everyone's trash. He picked up this old sewing machine out of someone's trash a while ago. He has been working on it and it now runs great (it has new cords, belts, and parts). It also has a nice wooden cabinet that he is finishing today. We are going to donate it to the assistance center that makes quilts for kids in need. I am so glad that someone else can benefit from my husband's trash picking, dumpster diving, junk collecting habits!!!
