Hello! Welcome to xoxPlannerisms! My name is Nikkole, I often go by Nikki which has come and gone during different stages of my life. As I write this, I am currently 32-years-old. I am a Leo. I’m a wife to my husband who, bless his soul, I’ve been with since I was 18 years old. We have two boys, Nick and Mikhail. One a teenager, and one who acts like one already.
We currently reside in southeastern Wisconsin. We live in a small, humble
home. My current favorite place to work is on my little corner of the living room where I take up all the space I need. Another favorite nook that I claim, is a tiny area of our bedroom that I have made into my ‘sanctuary’. It’s one of my favorite places to be even if you don’t consider it an actual place. It’s the width of a desk, on my side of the bed, and to me, it is heaven. It’s a place I can go and although it’s not secluded or away from anyone, I feel like I’m in my own world there.
I hope to someday build my very own she-shed if the family were to ever let me. I think they personally know they would never see me again. They would have to feed themselves for the rest of their lives. Haha! Of course, no boy would want that. Although, I would seriously die to have something similar to what I drew out. Look at all that natural lighting for videos and photos! Or even better, when it’s pouring rain and I want to sit with my planner and listen to the rain hit the windows and just be in a dark, gloomy, room when the mood sometimes need it. When I’m not dreaming about imaginary she-sheds and designing architectural designs in my spare time I like to do a lot of other things as well.
Planners are my main hobby but I also like to draw, color, I used to dabble in scrapbooking, and I love to shop clearance sales. I’m a bargain shopper if you ever did see one! You say sale, and I’m there! In fact, I’ve had a lot of FOMO in the planner world due to sales. Shame on me.
Coloring is another passion of mine that I’ve spent a lot of time in. I currently only color my favorite artist, Hannah Lynn, who sells her books on her own venues and on Etsy. She is my favorite to color mostly because I feel like it provides me with a challenge, yet it’s not that difficult to color her pages. Intricate designs are there if you want them, and big thick black lines to ensure your scribbles are covered up are as well.
