Hi, I’m Nikole!

If you love bright colors, working with your hands, and creating cool stuff (or would like to learn how), then you’ve come to the right place!

Welcome to Tie Dye & Teal!  I’m a wife, mom, crafter, gardener, baker, and all around juggler of life like many of you out there.  I love working with my hands and creating things.  Growing up, I had some pretty fun jobs like a floral designer, party centerpiece decorator, and blowing up thousands of balloons at a party store.  I learned to knit, weave, and screen print (as well as fine tune my sewing) while getting a degree in Textile and Apparel Design from Univ. of Wisconsin (Go Badgers!!).  Crafting, jewelry design, basket weaving…well, I guess you could say I’m a bit of a creative junkie!

I was born in Wisconsin, so I am a Packer fan and UW Badger for life (minus the cheese head), but I’ve called Brooklyn NY my home for the past 18 years.  I work full time as a software product manager (my day job), but my real passion is helping others explore their creative sides.

I hope this inspires you to create something new and colorful.  Thank you for being a part of these adventures!
