The Story of House of Nicnax
About 5 or so years ago, I went to visit my grandmas house. It was a windy day, and she made a comment about needing a doorstop.
Of course being a creative person- I took this as a challenge. But I couldn’t make just any sort of boring doorstop. I decided to make a funky owl doorstop!
I took inspiration from a little fabric owl she had made at her “granny club”. I tried to make it similar but it wasn’t going to happen for me- so being extreamly frustrated I decided to design my own pattern for one.
My House of Nicnax Owl Doorstop was born!!
And being me – I couldn’t stop at one – so my entire family ended up with a doorstop!
As Christmas was approaching my mum talked me into attending a market to sell some. They were super popular, so I made more.
Since then I have redesigned my owls again. They no longer even look like the original owls I made – but they are much cuter! I have also added to my products by making cushions and other items for the home! I still sell at Craft markets and I have my online Etsy Store as well as my Facebook page.
