My name is Sheila and I created Naubii's Creations.
I am not a creative person by nature, so I thought. I'm actually a Call Center Operations Manager and Project Manager.
However, about three years ago while on a on road trip with a friend, she showed me the most adorable mini post-it notebook that a mutual friend made. It was so cute. I thought, "I can do that." Well, I asked my friend to show me how she created the book. She did and, as they say, the rest is history. My love of paper crafting was born!
How did I come up with the name for my blog?
Many people have asked me how I came up with the name. Well, that's easy to answer... I have a cousin that has one of the most beautiful names I've ever heard. His middle name is 'Nabii'. I have always loved his name and when I was trying to come up with a name for my blog, 'Nabii' was at the top of the list.
Why did I change the spelling?
Believe it or not, 'Nabii' was taken when I created my YouTube alias several years ago. So I modified the spelling and added 'Creations'.
How I became greeting card designer...
I love making cards. However, I would make them and put them away. You know how it goes...nervous about people critiquing my work.....and me. (YIKES!) One day I mustered up the courage to share my cards with family and friends. They loved them! Of course I thought they were just being nice...you know what I mean??? Well, I started getting calls from family and friends to make cards for them.....and I was thrilled!!!
Where do I find inspiration?
I find inspiration for my creations just about every where. It could be a pattern on a piece of paper, the texture of a piece of paper, or the color of something such as paper, a leaf, a cup, almost anything. It's amazing how inspiration can come from random objects that you see every day.
Some of my favorite things to make...
In addition to making cards, I love making jounals, mini books, scrapbooks, and invitations.
Again, thanks for visiting Naubii's Creations. I hope that you will visit again soon.
Remember, creativity never stops, so do something creative every day!
