Hello and Welcome…

I’m Nicola but everyone calls me Nikki! I’m 33 and I live with my supportive Husband Alan and my three children Imogen, Andrew and Jayden-Kye, along with with Four the cat and Jerry the goldfish.

I have a huge passion for crocheting and taking photos. I am a creative person who loves to turn a squishy ball of yarn into something magical and I also have a huge passion for taking time out and walking down to the beach and taking in nature.

I created my blog as somewhere that I can write about all the things that I love. You can check out my first blog post here. Here on my blog there is a little bit of everything on my blog. I write about a lot of different things. I love movies, music, nail art, family, my crochet work, you can view my online store here.

A Little Bit More About Me…

I was diagnosed with an invisible illness called Endometriosis in August 2015, which can affect my daily life from time to time, I have my good days and my bad days.  Which is where my passion and love for Crochet comes into play.  I love visiting Instagram for colourful inspiration on other people’s work, which gives me inspiration to try new projects for myself, my children, friends and family.  You can find me over on Instagram as @ransonccnikki).  I also love connecting with the hashtag #CraftBizParty which is hosted by two lovely ladies over @CraftBizParty,  They have a twitter chat that runs from 9-11pm GMT every Sunday Evening.  If you care to join in, please let them know that Nikki Ranson sent you.  Be lovely to see some new faces.  You can find me joining in under the Twitter handle of @ransonnikki).

Jayden-Kye, The Minecraft Junkie..

Jayden-Kye born 2011 loves video games (especially minecraft), playing outside, whether that’s in the back garden, down the park or down the beach, loves colouring in, watching movies, dancing and in his words, loves spending time with his family.

Four, The Oreo Cat…

Four aka the oreo cat came to live with us in 2015. Alan looked up online for cats for sale as we had recently gotten married in the march and to make our little family unit complete, we thought we would throw in a pet! The previous owner couldn’t look after him, as they felt he was too much for them and their young 2 year old, so we took him under his wing.

His previous owner had him named as Toby, however I didn’t see him as a Toby and at the time I was reading the Divergent series from Veronica Roth and one of the main characters in novel and film (the whole family watched the films!) was called Tobias, aka Toby but his nickname was Four. So we thought why not, something different, something quirky, something us.

Four loves nothing more than to have tummy tickles, plenty of hugs, playtime and out and about in the back garden. As you can see in the photo he is well loved!

I look forward to sharing my blogging journey with you all.
