Waqaa & Hello!
This is me. Nikki/Stinky/Quluqaq. I was born and raised in beautiful Bethel, Alaska. I am life long student. Registered Nurse. And I am an Aspiring Nurse Practitioner. Crafter. Sewer. Hunter. Gatherer. Practicing gathering plants as medicine. Skin Sewer. Beading enthusiast. And I love the outdoors.
I share all things Sew Yup’ik about me whether it’s sewing, gathering plants to create into beautiful homemade goodness, my path to financial independence, growing up in a chaotic household, and sew much more.
I am a mother to 6. Married to the love of my life for the last 9 years. Dog mama. Sew Yup’ik was something that was created on my kitchen countertops in 2015 and has transformed into so much more than I had expected. My goal for 2021 is to blog more and share more about my life. My dreams and goals are to one day for work to be an option and not a necessity. I am working on creating that dream and I hope you enjoy following me as I work towards it. Quyana for visiting my page.
I am working on creating a page on each platform for now you can find me at:
And find my tutorials on my Sew Yup’ik channel on Youtube.
Welcome to my first and very own blog.
I live in the cold, where -40 is normal. The cost of living is sky high. There are no fast food joints, movie theaters, arcades, or anything normal. We have to be creative.
I am a lover of all things. The outdoors. The indoors. I love reading, writing, cooking. I am a student. I love to learn new things. I hope to learn to play the ukulele, and guitar. This coming summer will be my second go around and gardening, and it is definately a learning process. I love to be active. I am married to a wonderful man who is the best part of my day. I have 5 beautiful children, and my toddler keeps me on my toes.
I am learning to blog. I am learning to live healthy every day one step at a time. I hope you enjoy.
