Working on Bunnies today

I LOVE rabbits and bunnies, always have. I wanted to work on some tags for Easter, so I pulled out my old stand by rabbit pattern I'd created years ago and decided it needed updating. So, I spent a bit of time reworking it until I came up with a shape I really liked. Then, I created these sweet little prim tags, or they could be used as ornaments, from some scrapbook card stock. I have soooo many bunny ideas and will be making several of them in next few days. Meanwhile, this set of 3 were listed on Ebay tonight.

Speaking of Winning

I’d like to share with you one of the most adorable creatures I’ve ever seen! His name is Piccolo and he was created by Carol, a wonderfully talented artist whose blog is called Battatter's. I’d entered a contest she was having and to my delight, I WON! My prize was that she would create any creature I’d like. Well, if you have seen her bats you’d understand why my first and only choice was a bat. (Though I have to say that she also sent me some photos of other works she’d created and if I’d not already been set on the bat, it would have been a very difficult decision for sure!) If you haven’t seen her work, do take yourself over to her blog and be prepared to be blown away! The detail in this little bat is amazing! I can’t begin to tell you how in love I am with him! He’s really, really a treasure and I’m so, so very lucky that he’s come to stay with me.

Thank you again Carol, I'm just thrilled with my little baby bat!

OWOH Prize Winnings

First I need to apologize for posting this so late, I'm afraid so many other things have detoured me from being a good blogger lately. But I've wanted so badly to share these for some time.
I really loved the downloadable print that we all received from Jo at Tanglefrost blog, I think it’s just beautiful. I love the colors so much! Visit her blog and see more from this talented artist.

I also received an online Folk Art Doll Workshop from the very, very talented Moriah at MLB Studios. I had so hoped to get started with making a doll with that workshop during my school break but way too many things, including a blizzard, came up. Luckily, I can go to the workshop whenever I’d like and work on my doll at my own pace. Thank you again Moriah, I’m a very lucky girl indeed. Take a moment and visit Moriah’s blog if you haven’t already. She has some awesome tutorials and she’s just as creative as a person can get!

Last but certainly not least was a wonderful little goodie package sent to me by Wanda at A Frayed of Fibers blog. Isn’t the little Dottie doll adorable! Fall is one of my favorite times of the year and she will have a special place in my decorating for sure! I am also IN LOVE with my little initial pendant, it makes quite a statement and I’ve already been complimented on it. And look at all of those lovely handmade beads; I’ve actually already started using some of them in a project, I’ll be sure to post when I’m finished. Do take a moment and take a peek at Wanda’s blog, her work is so lovely, you’ll be glad you did.

Ahhh the Heralds of spring

When oh When will Winter be over?

2 feet, that's what I got to wake up to this morning, 2 feet of fresh white snow. It did it's best to sparkle and gleam in the early dawn light and try to gain my affection, but I'm just done. Ok, I might have hesitated a bit during my shoveling and gazed at the beautiful colors and light bouncing off of each glittery flake, but once it was in the shovel the sheer weight of it was enough to break my trance. It is pretty, is. I'm just ready for Spring.
