Day 9 of the 12 day giveaway!

Today meet the beautiful Joy of The Vintage Rabbit!



1. tell us a bit about you...
My name is Joy Gabler , I have been crafting and creating my whole life...but really started getting serious about it about 10 years ago! My Company
The Vintage Rabbit, just celebrated 10 years in the biz! I sell my things out of my booth at Vignettes in Ocean Beach California . I also travel to do shows several times a year! I started my my blog www.thevintagerabbit.typepad.com about 4 years ago and have met some wonderful gals through the blogworld and along the way have made some special friends too.
My husband and I live with our 2 dogs and several chickens out in the country in Sunny Southern California! I love being able to work from home and do what I love!

2. How did you get started crafting...
I started crafting as a child. My mom and her side of the family were always making and doing something! I guess it's in the blood! I think my mom was ahead of her time... I remember having little boutiques on the weekends in our driveway selling things we had made and I have been doing it off and on ever since!

3.What is your favorite medium to work with.
I kinda love all the mediums...and it kinda depends on the mood I am in at the time and I am always willing to learn to work with new ones. But right now I am enjoying working with fabric, especially vintage fabric!

4. What is your biggest goal for 2011
There are so many goals!! But I think I would really like to concentrate on a line of Jewelry and a website!

5.Share a favorite Christmas memory.
Making Norwegian and Swedish Christmas cookies with my Grandma and all my cousins!
I also got engaged in December at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego..so my husband and I always love to go down there on that date to celebrate our engagement and how we met!

Lovely sewn bookmarks!


Stunning hand made wrist cufffs!
