Hey my friends. First, let me say that I'm so glad that you enjoyed last week's post on the Chunky Bunny. He has started his exercise routine. Well kinda. He and Chloe come running over for carrots in the morning. I've tried to make Razzy follow me for his. However, Chloe get's hers and takes off running. Razzy gets mad at me for not giving him his carrot and goes over to steal Chloes. At least he had to hop around a little bit before he gets to her carrot right????
On to this week's post. Each Monday at Make Mine Pink, we do a show and tell. It's so much fun to see what everyone is up to. This weekend, I was able to create some things and I actually had an "aha" moment as Oprah would say. You see, my friend Lyd gave me an idea a few months ago. She's great at coming up with things. She said "Shabby Wabbits." I loved it! However, what in the heck are Shabby Wabbits??? It's been driving me crazy for months. What are they, what are they, what are they dag nabit! My "aha" moment came when I finally realized the KISS (keep it simple stupid). I love simple things. I love simple art. I love soft, simple colors. So, my Shabby Wabbits are just that. They are made from vintage and new fabrics and are filled with lavender and rose petals so they smell good. They measure 13 1/2" high by about 5" wide. See the picture above. Each one will be different and one of a kind. I will make up a bunch more as soon as my lavender shipment arrives.
I was indeed a Busy Bee and also finished a photo album that I was commissioned to make for a wonderful customer of mine. See above. I also made a checkbook cover that again is simple and pretty. I'm debating whether or not to keep the pen holder on them. Any feedback? I also made two handmade thank you cards, one congratulations card, two fathers day cards, two happy birthday cards and one get well card. Busy, busy, busy, but boy does it feel good to get things done and to finally have an idea I really like.
Well, have a fun week and get lots of stuff done for yourself.
This week IGF Lyd and her wonderful ideas and getting stuff done.
