- the creative director -
i love life and would't change it for the world!
Welcome to my little sweet spot. This is where I get to introduce myself to you! My name is Nikisha and I am the wonderful lady who makes sure your vision comes to life for your custom invitations. Here is a little tidbit about me:
I am a wife and mother of two little girls ages 2.5 and 5 years old (I ask myself the same question, how does she run a successful business, raise two little ones, and take care of her husband, lol). I relocated from the BIG APPLE, New York City to a small town aka suburbia in New Jersey called New Providence (yes, I love it here). As a new suburban business owner and mom, I am fully engaged in all the normal activities, meeting wonderful hardworking moms in town, being an active PTA mom (just co-chaired the largest fundraiser, Spring Fling and it was a hit, YES!) and taking care of all my awesome, yes awesome, clients from New Jersey to California (we are national baby). To sum it up, I love what I do and I love being a family woman, is it perfect, heck no, but it is possible and that is what i live for, possibilities (that's why I know your vision of your special invitations are possible).
NOW enough about me!
Let's chat about Inviting Treasures and how I embarked on this journey (yes, a 8 year journey and counting and it has been challenging but GREAT.) I have my MBA and MPH (yes, that was another journey and another story for another time), I started out in the medical field, but realized after all my work experiences, medicine wasn't the BEST place for me, a family woman. So somehow it dawned on me, I wanted to develop my creative side (I had been showing signs but was nervous because it wasn't my history). I had friends in the industry and after speaking to them, I learned a way to start and it was with Carlson Craft (CC) pre-desiged invitations. As time went by, I realize CC limited my capabilities and I started to mold my creative side by taking graphic design courses. Today, I love working with my clients and designing elegant, clean, modern, and "pop" features in my clients custom invitations.
Hope I didn't bore you and thanks for stopping by, speak to you shortly!
