Kinara’s Children Has Moved!

Great news everyone. Kinara’s Children are movin’ on up. To a deluxe website in the cloud. It was way overdue but now Umoja, Nia, Ujima, Kuumba and the crew have new digs on their own site: Check it out!

Our Gift Shop has been removed and can now be found at the new site. Also the menu items at the top of the page such as Kinara’s Children Today will now take you to the new site. is where the action is for the moment.

For those who may be new here check this brief summary of what this project is all about: 

The Kinara’s Children project is a website aimed at informing the community about Kwanzaa, its 7 principles, and African American history and culture through the lives of 7 cartoon characters who exhibit the traits found in Kwanzaa’s Nguzo Saba. homepage graphic


What about Created by Crosby?

We’re not going anywhere! I’m still working out the details of how I might proceed though. For the time being, I’ll be posting Kinara’s Children content on both sites (so you won’t miss a thing) but CbC will be moving back to focusing on design and illustrations that aren’t part of Kinara’s Children’s world. I’ll also consider reviews of other culturally oriented media, 3d tech, and info about various graphic oriented software and techniques. 

Please Note: The sign up sheet at still links to my current CreatedbyCrosby mailing list. There is one list for both sites. I haven’t worked out how I’d like to handle this yet but for now, you may end up with two emails for the same content as I transition the Kinara’s Children site

Kwanzaa is on its way!

And as we reflect on the joys (and pain) of the past year we can also look forward to great things in the future.
