      Yay, atsuko!! She’s the embodiment of what I love about Craftster–she’s always kind, helpful, unpretentious, generous, creative and thinking about others (and crafting for at least 30 people at any given moment!). Plus, she’s an absolute superwoman; not just a great crafter, friend, and family person, she’s also a scientist! How she finds any time for sleep, I have no idea.

      Aw, thank you Calluna. You are really too sweet. 🙂 It feels so odd receiving this when there are soooo many talented craftsters out there…must be going in alphabetical order or maybe years on Crafster. LOL. Anyhow thank you for this great honor. 🙂

      Thank you HRSG. Craftster of all trades, master of none.

      I have had a crush on atsuko forever! And that includes a crush on her darling daughter as well!

      Love all of the humorous projects and fun stories…you can tell that she shares the vision and playfulness of a child in her work…

      Congrats, atsuko! I am lucky to have been a recipient of some of her projects in swaps! 😀
