Niki Jin Crafts is Back!

Last you heard from me (from this blog, anyway) was almost two years ago when I said goodbye and went exploring new directions. I started another blog (it ... didn’t last), and wrote a post here and there for my portfolio website, mostly talking about my professional art and design work. Nowadays I stick to posting mostly to Instagram.

So what have I been up to? Life has been busy, taking care of two young kids and building a freelance career doing book design and illustration. In between, I keep myself busy with various projects related to my art.

I let go of Niki Jin Crafts for a little while, but recently, it came back to my mind. I thought about what I want to do with this site. Just let it sit there? Delete it? Well no, I’m not ready to get rid of it quite yet! It could use a little updating, though, that’s for sure. I’ve given the site a new look (I hope you approve!) but that’s not what you’re here for, right? We need some new content, of course. I promise, new stuff is coming…

Some Floral Sketches

I’ve been working on creating some floral designs. Here are a few sketches I’ve come up with so far.

Garden Update

Summer is winding down, and it will soon be time for Autumn. I’ve recently picked some of the last vegetables of the season out of my garden. Here are some images of the harvest. All in all, it was an OK year for gardening. With all the rain that came this year, I barely had to do any watering. I had a bit of a battle with the bugs, though.


Of course, as many gardeners do, I inevitably ended up with more vegetables than they could consume, so I did a little canning. I made some bread and butter pickle relish out of my cucumbers, and jelly from the hot peppers. Mmmm…


Although I will miss the season of summer fresh veggies, Fall = baking = more yummy goodness. Stay tuned for more posts of delicious goodies…
