Are you ready for an adventure?

We've come to the end of this 2012 road. What a year it has been. A year that has been made so special and fun because of you. Your friendship, kindness and love feeds my soul and brings many a smile to my face. I can't thank you enough.


Over the last month, as I have been brought to tears so many times by all the sadness that seems to be in the world right now, along with sadness I feel for friends going through some very challenging times. As I started thinking of 2013, I felt compelled to make my blog a place of happy celebration. A place for you to come, hop down the rabbit hole with me, and have a wonderful adventure. A place to forget about reality for a bit and get lost in the magic.

"You use to be much more...muchier.
"You've lost your muchness."
-The Mad Hatter


"This is impossible." - Alice
"Only if you believe it is." - The Mad Hatter


I invite you to join me and the bunnies the 15th of every month for Mid-Month Madness. All you have to do is show up. There will be something different every month. No rules, regulations, taxes, sadness, poo pooieness, just lots and lots of fun! I might introduce a new Folk Art Fusion design and kit. I might have a tutorial for you. I might have a tale to tell. However; no matter what I may come up with, there will always be prizes to be won. After all, prizes are fun! :)

Simply put, it will be something happy and fun to look forward to every month.


"There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter." - The Mad Hatter

The bunnies and I look forward to hopping down the rabbit hole with you.
Happy New Year!

xx,
Michelle and the Bunnies

Sarah Beth said...

Midmonth madness sounds like fun. Been reading your blog a year now I think and though I Dont always comment I do look forward to your posts. I downloaded all the bom Hannah and Herrington files and plan to make that quilt this year. Your bunnies are so adorable. Do they use a litter box like cats? Anyhoo Happy New Year.

It sounds like you have a wonderful 2013 planned!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

YOU....are my kind of human being.

I too believe my dear, that our spaces here are a great opportunity to take each other on happy journeys, to forget or rather,to PUT INTO DIFFERENT perspective, the realities of the world. Let's face it....many a good classical novel or even fairytale was written with a life lesson intended. Let us help shape our realities together with some MAGICAL FUN! I am not sure what my new year will look like as far as commissions, or else I would say, HECK YEAH! INCLUDE ME IN every 15th! It is a wonderful idea, but for now, I will participate by watching. But maybe I can swing it for it is up my ally!

LOVE YOUR HAT, HARRINGTON BY YOUR SIDE, and your imagination. You are super, Michelle. Anita

The French Bear said...

Shell, you are just so sweet, I love the hat and the buns at your feet!!!
I am looking forward, oh yeah, to 2013!!!!!!
Big things will happen, and dreams will come forward and life will make us happen!
Hugs,
Mags

Hi Hannah and Harrington!!
Hugs, and love, Di and miss gracie

I am ready to take a leap for some fun. Wanted to say Thank you again for taking a few minutes to chat with me at fall market. It was such a pleasure to meet you and a highlight of my year.

Rabbits' Guy said...

Well there you go again. Getting everybody all excited over something. Don't those fusion-people know the travails of heading down bunny trails? Are you sure this is a good idea? I mean - with the Fiscal Cliff and all - aren't we just supposed to be despondent and get used to it? Well,I shall enjoy sitting along the sidelines watching the fun.

(Note to self: Reserve 15th of each month for fun with Hannah and Harrington and rest of Raspberry Rabbits.)

N. Maria said...

I surely am ready for an adventure on your bunny blog.
Love and good wishes for all.

Jeanne Gwin said...
