Looking for something?

I recently moved my main website domain nicolejinjones.com over to my new portfolio and art blog, so any of you who have tried to access my site were probably redirected there, where you hopefully found a link back to here. However you made it back here, I'm glad you found it! To access this craft blog, use nikijin.blogspot.com for now. This is the default Blogger address and should work whether or not I decide to change the address in the future. Also, you can find updated Pinterest pins to popular posts on this board. (Believe me, no one hates it more than me when Pinterest pins lead you nowhere!)



Happy Crafting!
