About Me

by Dominique

Hey y’all! My name is Dominique Nicole and most people either call me D, Dom, Domo, or Nicole…I really don’t care what you call me, just don’t call me COLLECT (ok, that definitely aged me, ha!)  Many of you know me as a Fashion Designer, but I started this blog in 2021 after years of “wanting” and “preparing” to blog. All of my creative ideas simply couldn’t be expressed on social media.

This blog serves as a community of crafters and self-proclaimed “domestic artists” such as myself. My motto is “you can have it all” and I show you how to live a full and abundant lifestyle, starting with the simplest things like creativity, gratitude, and love.

Why You Should Stick Around:

If you love crafting, sewing, decor, fashion, baking and cooking, with a bit of self-improvement then you are in the right place! I merge the Arts and Domestic Sciences together, and show you the simple, real world application to your own life. 

My goal is to show the average working and extremely busy person how to develop and craft a beautiful life with comfortable surroundings, starting within the home and working outward. Join the movement as we return back to loving our homes and lives…
