About

A Handmade Adventure

Hello!
I’m a 29 year old 'quirky' girl who lives in Newcastle, Australia with her lovely Husband and adorable but very cheeky bunny – Baxter Fudge (the inspiration behind – The Rebel Rabbit).

Ever since I can remember I’ve always been a crafty person. I was always working on creative projects with my Nanna, Mum and Dad when I was little.

During my late teens/early twenties I got all ‘grown up’ and sensible. This involved the completion of a Bachelor of Science degree where I graduated to become a geologist. I met a boy (now Husband), did a bit of traveling and bought a house.

Since starting my professional career as a ‘geo’ I had somehow got myself into the mindset that being in a scientific profession meant that I could never be my creative self again – the days of high school art were over! The poor 'right side' of my brain had almost shrivelled up and forgotten what craft glue smelt like!

It was the passing of my Nanna (who could do ANYTHING from furniture making to crochet and everything in between!) in 2012 that was the kick in the guts that life is far too short to not be doing what you love! So I decided to ‘have a go’ and I began my journey to re-learn the crafty skills I seemed to have forgotten.

The next step in this little mission of mine was to start The Rebel Rabbit. This began in 2013 as a blog. I was fed up with sitting on the sidelines admiring all these creative and crafty peeps out there living their dreams. I wanted to share with the world the fun and creative side of my life and connect with like-minded people. I wanted to find my ‘tribe’!

The blog and continual learning of crafty skills helped me find that ‘tribe’ and allowed me to build my confidence to start my own Etsy shop and register my business name!

I have always dreamed of selling things and I LOVE the handmade community! The connection you make with people that ‘get’ what you’re about and love what you do is what it's all about! That feeling of excitement knowing you’re purchasing something handcrafted and unique and supporting an independent artisan is what I hope to recreate in my buyers. I hope to have a little market store one day and perhaps wholesale to some of my favourite independent shops!

While it’s a challenge managing full time work and being creative I’m loving every minute of it and slowly creating my ideal lifestyle!

Thanks for supporting me on my little adventure to rediscover my creativity. I think Nan would be proud!
I hope you enjoy The Rebel Rabbit!

Sam :)

    A little bit quirky and a bit outside the mainstream. With a wonderful Fiance and adorable bunny called Baxter Fudge, I love creating - full stop! My background is in science and I work full time as a geologist....... waiting for my next crafty idea!
