I wanted to figure out a way to store my bags, backpacks and purse charms in a way that I got to see them everyday (because come on they are so cute) but also something that got them out of the pile they had become in my closet.Read More

Guys. We brunched so hard this week. I got in the habit of cooking all of our leftovers and adding eggs to make it brunch-y on the weekend.
You should try it, it's amazing.
Planning out some big things for the week like a Black Friday sale for Designs by Nicolina and an order cut of date for Happily Ever Tees. Next week we have a pop up market we are participating in at one of our shops we stock in Atlanta, so I am doing some prep work for that as well.
Also filling up my planner for the next couple of months. I am currently working out of two planners since it's basically 2016! I can't believe it.
Our friends. Teenage Nicole was filled feelings. OK 25 year old Nicole is filled with feelings. Like most teenage girls I struggled to find friends and acceptance. Adults around me told me not to worry, and to just hold on because it would get better.
For the most part I didn't believe them. But they were right, it got better. Now we are surrounded by some of the best people I could ever imagine. Friends who would do anything for you and expect nothing in return.
I wish I could go back and tell teenage Nicole that everyone was right. It gets better. You will find your tribe. Even though I can't, all of the pain and tears were worth it to get me to where I am today.
Some new lettered items and projects for Designs by Nicolina.
It's coming up on DBN's 6 year anniversary and the past couple of months I have been feeling quite uninspired to be honest. But I feel like I have a new energy about it and I am so excited@
The next few weeks to be pretty crazy. But it will all be worth it! We have some fun adventures planned for 2016.
Do you have anything fun planned for 2016? I would love to hear about it!
I consider myself to be a pretty crafty person with one exception. I can't sew. [But I would love to learn!] That means when I have a project in mind that would usually involve whipping out a sewing machine. I have to come up with an alternate solution.
Today I am sharing a fun DIY No Sew Pocket Tank, which I have done in a fun Star Wars print. Tonight we are heading to see the Atlanta Braves, and it just so happens to be Star Wars night. I though this tank would be a fun and cute way to stay cool and show my nerdy Star Wars side. Princess Leia buns might also be happening.
1. Before you get started it's super important that you wash your tank, and your fabric. You don't want one of them to shrink in the wash and then your pocket gets all wonky.
2. Find the spot of fabric you want to showcase and cut using the CUT line on my template as your guide.
3. Fold and iron into a pocket shape. Take your template and fold on the FOLD lines. Use that as your guide to make the pocket shape by folding the fabric around that and ironing as you go. See photo below.
4. Once you have a solid pocket shape flip it over and test it on the tank. Make sure the lines are straight, and the placement of the design is how you want it.
5. One flap at a time add your iron on fabric tape under the folds and iron it down according to the instructions on the packaging. This will help the lines be nice and crisp when you go to attach the pocket to the tank.
6. Line up the pocket. I used another pocket tank I have for a guide as far as placement goes. I attached the pocket 4.5 inches in from the side seam and 4.5 inches down from the neckline.
7. Attach the pocket. One edge at a time, lift and add fabric tape and iron it down. Once it cools test and make sure all the edges are secure.
8. Look cute! Your pocket tank is done.
As always if you have any questions leave them in the comments and I will do my best to answer!
