Jinjur's D.I.Y. Center navigation buttons
Hey there, and welcome to my intro page, finally updated (hadn't done it since 2002!)

Originally, this site was intended to be a place for me to encompass several things I wanted to do - I'd been doing cooking and craft articles for years in the various zines and websites I've worked on (I even started a cooking zine in the late 80s and did an entire issue of different meatloaf recipes before deciding no-one would care and throwing it out!). A lot of times the more domestic d.i.y. articles got really buried in amongst all the other stuff. So I wanted to have a place to focus more on those things. Also, I wanted to pull some of the D.I.Y. info over from the Action Girl section of our main site, and maybe keep a little journal about our work and doings at the same time.

But oddly, I got sidetracked away from the more domestic stuff over time! So now I'm trying to bring the focus back, but this time I'm making it easier on myself by making one big giant bloggy thing that pulls it all together.

Me? I'm a writer/artist/mostly writer who is spending most of her time chasing our baby daughter around the house right now. You can find out more about me at our main site,
