Hi and welcome to Nina With Freckles! This page is a quick tour of the website for friends and new acquaintances alike, since I find that once places expand a bit, they can become rather overwhelming to navigate as a new visitor.
First a couple of words about me, Nina Martin. I started my Nina With Freckles blog on the free WordPress platform, which is why you will see my Blog posts going back all the way to 2011, even though this self-hosted website has launched in 2021. Blog categories and tags have been reorganised to reflect my goals today.
My home is located in Helsinki, Finland, but I hope to connect with you regardless of where you live! Handicrafts are a universal expression of creativity after all, and colours and materials appeal to us all.
ABOUT: Why I do what I do as well as how I can assist and collaborate with you.
SURFACE PATTERN DESIGN: Digital scrapbooking is an affordable and happily clutter-free hobby, so I am creating cheerful digital papers to serve this community. Currently I am also honing my skills on complex repeats for fabric designs, but more about that in the future!
COURSES: Launching in 2022!
NEWSLETTER: I have made a page to present my three different email subscriptions in greater detail since it can be tricky to know what to expect when signing up.
- The newsletter is what I call a traditional email ‘update’ but I warmly welcome a dialogue rather than monologue in silence.
- Then there’s the subscription for pattern testers, which doesn’t mean you commit to anything by just signing up.
- Finally you can sign up to read the blog via email.
Free subscriber resources are locked up in the exclusive Library, so be sure to sign up to receive the password. It will change from time to time and if you keep reading the newsletter you’ll be notified.
For the nitty gritty stuff, I have pages for Frequently Asked Questions as well as numerous policies and statements, all of which you can access for example through links in the website footer.
You find an overview of the website on my Sitemap. Improvement suggestions are always welcome.
Getting In Touch
Please use my Contact page to get in touch, or my Wholesale page if you are a shop owner interested in paper patterns. In the footer of the website you find links to my profiles in social media so don’t hesitate to connect.
I hope you enjoy your visit!
