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

Sewing Book Giveaway - ends 11-5-09
I am still SLOWLY cleaning out my workshop bookcases and I have another book for a giveaway. It is called "Sew Darn Cute" and has lots of neat projects in it. To enter just leave a comment on this post letting me know what the first thing you ever made was and if you still have it. The giveway ends at midnight on Thursday 11-5-09 and I will draw a winner on Friday 11-6-09. My first project was a skirt with yellow ducks all over it. I was in kindergarten and I helped my mom make it. I got to hem it all by myself, which explains the 4-inch long uneven messy stitches everywhere. I didn't realize until years later that my mom went back over it with tiny stitches, but left mine on it. I still have my yellow ducky skirt safely packed away!
