Mom and Dad, just trying to survive. Mom likes conspiracy theories, romance and mystery novels, and coffee. Dad likes telling stories, inventing pizzas, and watching crime shows.
Nicki, the oldest, has never missed a homework assignment. Likes reading everything she can get her hands on, walking in the woods, and being able to boss everyone around. Is often cranky.
Ashley, the second oldest, lives in her cowboy boots. Like writing, exploring and having alone time. Is popular and genuinely sweet… until you cross her.
Chrissy, the middlest, doesn’t miss a trick. Likes pushing people’s buttons, making up annoying songs, blackmail, and special treatment. Is constantly plotting.
Charlotte, the second to youngest, always has a joke ready. Likes watching movies on repeat until she learns every line of dialogue, being included in her older sisters’ activities, and any form of attention. Is vain (the hand-me-downs bother her the most), sentimental, and an aspiring comedian.
Tess, the baby, is tired of “everyone always picking on” her. Likes hanging upside down until all the blood rushes to her head, cuddling animals, and sucking up to Mom.
Rapunzel and Doogie, the cat and the dog. Rapunzel likes curling up in dark, small spaces, accompanying the girls to the bus stop and on hikes, and sleeping. Doogie likes chasing cars, balls, cats, Tess, lizards, and anything else that moves.

Punzy! And isn’t Doogie’s nickname “the most annoying dog in the world”?
Is Tess like the mathematician of the family :D
This is incredible! I’ve never seen anything like this.
Thank you! :D
I love your stories and the wonderfully inventive way you tell them. I have three grown children, and I’m sure they can relate to the relationships and adventures you describe!
Did Chrissy make up any other songs besides “I am right, you are wrong, you are the dirtiest thing of all?”
Yes, quite a few. Charlotte and I are working on a recording of her most annoying song.
I guess I should have read this before writing my post. Thanks very much for straightening me out!
Honestly, I love your characters. It’s even more amazing to me how you make your characters out of different materials, and are able to make stories out of them. I haven’t started reading any of your stories yet, but I hope to soon. I do wish you the best of luck, goodbye now. :)
I love your character so much, and this idea is so unique and creative. I have yet to find another blog like yours! I have just followed and am truly looking forward to more fantastic posts. I would appreciate a follow back if you enjoy my blog, perksofanightowl.com :) I look forward to a great blogging relationship!
very creative and entertaining :)
Well-developed idea! Great effort :) You have a follower here!
You’ve got some mad dexterity skills going on.
This is so sweet! I love the Thanksgiving comic. Can’t wait to see more from you!
Too cute!! Love it :)
your works remind me of “pierre von helden”, german collage artist
First Blog I looked at while setting up my own new one and you have knocked my socks off! I am an art-quilt designer/maker, among other things and your wonderful little characters are a great inspiration for a way to create figures in fabric too! (Art-Quilts are “pictures drawn with pieces of fabric”) You have another fan! Keep up that creative energy!
Thanks! I am a huge fan of quilts– I always go to art shows that feature them. I’ll follow your blog tomorrow when I’m at my computer!
I have never admired at a blog like this, I was dry wandering around net.. you showered me with happiness
Dude, I am so the middlest child. I’m in a family of 4 kids, accept I share the middle with my brother (who is the only child)…. which makes me the nothingest child. <3
This is just fantastic! I love it so much. Nicky, thanks for being so awesome!
