Nina Ackerman loves a party and accepts any excuse to celebrate! Although Nina loves a good bash, she is especially fond of her birthday & Halloween. She begins planning for next year’s cake or costumer the very next day and talk about them throughout the year. The idea for For Keeps began in 2006 when Nina made her first table runner in kindergarten during a class Thanksgiving project. The addition of more occasions for the runners came naturally with her joy of all holidays and their traditions. It all makes sense, considering Nina was born on a holiday…the Fourth of July!
