About

Hello and Welcome to The Official Blog of Flip Flops and Roses Designs.

Stacy Nicholas

My name is Stacy Nicholas and I am a Wife married to my Wonderful Husband for over 30 years, A Mother of 3 Beautiful Grown Children and A Crafter since Birth! 🙂

My Mom used to say that I would never throw anything away because I knew someday I would be able to use it to create something Wonderful!  Well I think she was right and I know that I got my Creative Talents from Her.  My Beautiful Mom passed away in 2008 and I miss her dearly but I know that she is always with me in my Heart! <3

I have always loved to create and sometimes I get so involved into my projects that I just escape into my Crafting Paradise and end up ignoring the rest of the world. I am one of those Crafters that will work on my Projects until they are finished even if it is into the wee morning hours. 🙂

Well enough about me let me give you a little insight to how Flip Flops and Roses Designs came about. Back in 2008 the company that I was working for decided to close the plant where I was at and asked me to move to another one of their facilitys. Luckily it was close to my home so I decided to go. Well things started to slow down and with the turn in the economy my husband was laid off from his construction job and the jobs that did come about were small.  We lost two Beautiful people in 2008 my niece Julie Ann who was only 20 and my Mom who had been diagnosed with Cancer at the beginning of the year and lost her battle in November.  I was so lost, I had lost my Rock I felt like nothing mattered and then one day I woke up and it was like the whole world changed.  I knew my Mom and Niece were right there telling me it was time to go on, it was time to share my Love for Creating with the World.  And so my journey began…

Everyone always asks me how I decided on the name Flip Flops and Roses Designs.  Well I decided that I wanted a name that describes me, so after thinking about the things I Love it came to me.  I Love the Simple Things in Life and Flip Flops are one of the Simple things that make me smile and make me feel comfortable and I Love, Love, Love Roses because each one is Unique and Beautiful.  So that is how I decided on Flip Flops and Roses Designs.  My Motto is “Create and Enjoy the Beautiful and Simple Things in Life!” and I Believe that Everyone is Creative because “Creativity Comes from the Heart!”

I decided in January of 2009 to follow my Heart and so I took some Christmas Money that I had received and Headed to CHA (The Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show) in Anaheim.  I had not been to the show for many years so it was like a new adventure for me.  I walked the show floor and saw many of the Wonderful people that I had known for many years that are in the Crafting Industry.  It was like I had never left, I visited many wonderful booths and made my First Purchase at the Zutter Innovative booth and the rest is history.

I opened my Online Store and Ebay Store in January 2009 and have made many Wonderful Friends along the way.  I Strive to bring only High Quality Creative Tools and Supplies into the store and always offer Low Prices.  I Believe that by offering Low Prices Everyday our Customers do not have to wait for a Coupon or Sale, they know that they will always get the Lowest Price Everyday!  We do however offer items on clearance once in awhile, when we need to make room for New Items that will be arriving to the Stores.

Well I would be saying Thank you for Stopping By and Visiting My Blog but I have one more Special Thing that I would like to share with you.  As of January 2013 I am now the Designer of a Wonderful New Tool called The “Bow-it-All” that is Being Manufactured By Zutter Innovative.  This is the Manufacturer of the World Famous “Bind-it-All” and many other Wonderful High Quality Tools for the Crafting Industry.  This has been a Wonderful Adventure and I hope you will Join me on my Creative Journey!
