About Me

I'm a mid-40s author and illustrator in Canada. I'm also an avid crafter: I enjoy stamping, art journalling, calligraphy, sewing baby quilts, paper crafts and all kinds of other creative projects. I collect cobalt blue bottles, fabric, ribbon, stickers, vintage greeting cards, vintage linens, and just about anything cute and crafty.

Favorite Crafts

baby quilts, patchwork and other small sewing projects; some paper crafts (cards, envelopes, wrapping); calligraphy and lettering; art journalling; illustration.

Sadly, I don't knit or crochet, and I don't make ATCs.

Colours, patterns, styles

I adore crimson red, and also apple or grass green. Red and white gingham makes me swoon. Polka dots rock! I also like small florals, stripes, and 30s repro prints. I make a lot of baby quilts so cheery kids' prints appeal to me.

I don't like anything tropical, mystical (fairies, zodiac, etc.), psychedelic or abstract. I also don't like batiks, kawaii, 80s stuff, or anything with Santa, halloween, or oriental motifs.

Wish list

You will make me giddy and light-headed if you send me any of the following:

  • velvet or grosgrain ribbon or rickrack
  • 30s repro fabric (fat quarters or charm packs)
  • unique bright-coloured buttons
  • vintage sewing notions

Food and scent

I prefer not to receive anything scented or edible.

Thank you so much I just love the Christmas fabric and the very pretty needle book :)

pearlie on Feb 6, 2008:

Yes, I did just get the package on our swap and I love it! On those tins, some people use them to make books, poetry pieces, shrines, or photo holders. Special holders for ATCs maybe? I don't think they even send out AOL tins anymore. Let me know what you do with them. ~deb

Hi Rabbit,

I just wanted to let you know that I use my needlebook all the time, and take it everywhere with me. Everytime I look at it I am thankful for your kindness. :D

ElectricDaisy on May 29, 2007:

I just wanted to let you know that I received the handmade needlebook you made me for 'Crafty Pay it Back' and I really like it. It's cute and fun!! I have 4 children, from ages 11 weeks to 9 years, and I'm always taking them to lessons and fun of all sorts. I always bring a project to work on, but I have the hardest time keeping track of my needles-sometimes I find them the hard way-OUCH! Thanks to your gracious gift, I will always know where my needles are! Thank you, thank you!! :D
