Mojo and the Bunnies

He is soooo soft and fuzzy!
What an incredibly fast week. I can't believe it's Sunday again and Sunday is almost over! Good grief!

I have been doing a lot of reading lately and a lot of thinking. It's amazing when you can quiet your mind (not a simple task for me) the kind of answers that get well... answered. This weekend I was in total connection with my "Mojo." In fact, the mojo was literally hopping! I have made bunches and bunches of "doodles" with bunnies. I know I like a simple things; bunnies and a "French" kinda look to things. I emailed my new blogging friend and incredible designer, Brooke, and asked her for her opinion on the term "French Cottage." She said that it reflected my style and I should go for it. Another friend of mine and talented sewer, Sharon, said in a recent interview at Make Mine Pink, to focus on something and make it the best. Be an expert at it. So true! So true!
So... I've decided that I'm going to truly follow my bliss and make things that I truly love. I loooooooooove a simple French Cottage look and I looooooooove bunnies. I'm combining the two to create my new pieces. I even have some patterns coming out so that those who love to create things can make something for yourself and those you love. We all love to learn, create and be inspired. Let's face it, in these scary times, it's kinda fun to get lost in the creation of something and give a gift from the heart.
Here are two pieces to start. They are available at my site if your interested. I'm calling my work "Recession Art." It's reasonably priced so you can purchase a little piece of "pretty" without feeling guilty.

Check back with me for "What's up Wed."
bunny hugs,
This week IGF Mojo, the Bunnies and Friends that inspire.
