But wait, you probably want to know who runs the show here…

Hi, friend! I’m Jamey and I’m honored that you’ve chosen to spend some time with me.

I’m just a good ol’ farm girl from rural Ontario, Canada. My childhood involved chasing chickens in mid-calf shaggy brown boots while wearing a neon pink bikini; or you could find me riding my goat with no ears, no tail and three legs – true story (see goat in photo)!

I was blessed with a very creative and talented mother who exposed me to a variety of arts and crafts throughout my childhood and eventually later in life, I discovered my own propensity and talent for most creative endeavors.

After University and time abroad, my travels led me to the beautiful Pacific Northwest of Canada and my now home, Victoria, BC. The moment I laid eyes on this incredible city, I knew I was home. It was here with the mountains and fresh ocean air, my passion for graphic design emerged. Eventually, that same passion spilled over to the blog you’ve arrived at – Dabbles and Babbles.

In addition to my professional life, I’m married to a wonderful guy named Michael, and I have a super outgoing and vivacious daughter, Noelle. Oh, I can’t forget my ridiculously handsome Balinese cat, Milo.

Life is good and I’m thrilled you could join me.

If you’re ready to jump in and join the creative party, I encourage you to subscribe to Dabbles & Babbles and find me in some of these great places: Pinterest (join almost 12,000 other followers), Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+

    I pinned your crochet shop — Here is the proof: (my snapshot of my Pinterist page with my name will not copy) :-( Have you already have five people to get the free crochet patterns? If so, that’s fine — If not, I’d love them!
