Hi, I'm Nikki - I'm mama to 3 crazy little people - Benji 1, Lily May 3 and Lucas 5 years old. They are my world, and it's a world of creative imagination.
I love nothing more than making their imaginative creations come to life. We love to go on adventures together, have tea parties and create worlds of whimsy and delight. They amaze me constantly and I am learning from them every single day.
When my second child was a baby I decided to also start making for others, so that I could share this creativity with other families and so Lille Bee was born.
Where does the name come from?
Lille Bee comes from a little song I used to sing to my daughter in the (futile) hope that she would go to sleep! She STILL doesn't sleep through the night at 3 lol.
What sort of things do I make?
I make dolls, soft toys and stuffed animals as well as childrens clothing.
Some of my favourite work is the matching sets...either a doll/toy and clothing set or a 'dolly and me' clothing set where I make a dress or outfit for child and doll that match.
A lot of my work at Lille Bee is custom, one-of-a-kind (ooak) creations and I work with my customers to achieve a look or theme they would like for their doll, toy or clothing items.
I love it when my customers give me a loose brief or direction and i can run with it! My mind never stops creating and imagining and I love a challenge - so if you're after something you don't see listed here or on my facebook or Instagram please ask, we just might be able to make it happen.
I look forward to helping you fuel the next generations imaginations through creative play and special little dolly/animal friends.
