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…

A Gallery of Geeky Cakes

Today is my sisters' and my birthday (we are triplets), which means...CAKE!!! For the past couple of years, I've had tons of fun making some cute and geeky cakes for the occasion. While I'm by no means a cake-decorating expert or perfectionist, I have lots of fun with it. Here are the ones I made this year and last year.
