Roses or Tulips? Founder and Creator of Ivory Cole Designs - Nicole Haslam started her business on a whim. After being laid off during the COVID-19 pandemic and bored as ever, she decided to buckle up, do some research and find a hobby that interested her. Little did she know that her “hobby” was going to be her passion and livelihood for years to come. For Nicole, she just wants to make people happy. Working with resin and putting an emphasize on florals to create stunning home decor pieces, she’s turned her small business into a a full time hustle, working for up to 16 hours per day. What she loves most about her job, is the place of stature her pieces hold in so many people’s hearts - from wedding collages, to creating a placeholder for lost loved ones, Nicole takes the extra care and love into the creation of each and every one of her designs. And with that, she has determined that her customer service and continuous dedication is what has made her business flourish over the past several months.
