Artist Spotlight :: Nicola Box

Written By: Kaitlyn

For each Crybaby Subscription Box, it’s important to us that we share the creative makers behind all of the products and their stories.

Today’s story comes from Nicola Box of InnaBoxDesign. Nicola first decided to join The Crybaby Club, because she identified with the message and agreed that women (and men) shouldn’t be afraid to cry when life gets tough.

We all go through our own dramas in life and need to realise that showing emotion is normal!” Nicola said. “The toughest women/men need to cry sometimes and let it all out. I just love how a community has been built so people can come forward and talk about what's troubling them.”

Nicola mentioned how helpful this community is for people who struggle to find a place to go to to talk about issues in their lives. It was a journey for Nicola to realize that showing your emotions is healthier than holding them inside. It took her until she was in her late twenties to stop fighting with her emotions, and now finds herself more comfortable with doing so.

“The more you battle with yourself and your emotions, the harder you make life for yourself,” Nicola said. “Accept who you are, accept your emotions and you will be a much happier person.”

Nicola is a London Based Designer for her own collection of quirky flair ranging from pins to greeting cards. As an avid animal lover, most of her designs pay homage to her favorite cuties in the animal kingdom. At one of her most recent pop up shops, Nicola ran into a fellow crybaby.

“I was running a pop up shop in Brick Lane last weekend and I bumped into our very own Kayley Mills! It was super random,” Nicola said.

She is planning on being at many other events throughout the year. If you’re not in London, be sure to check out her Instagram and Etsy pages and check out all of her adorable merchandise.

What Makes Her Cry:

Cries from sadness when she sees animals in pain, cries from happiness when she sees them being happy and cute.

Her Message to Fellow Crybabies:

I'd like to say that I really love this club and how quick it has grown! I'm happy to be a part of it! Let's make sure we all talk to each other in times of need and not bottle things up and end up crying more than we actually need to. Let's all support each other!
