Mid Month Madness, Melon and a Giveaway

Hi ya! Happy mid month madness! First I want to say thank you so very much, for your hugs on my last post. It really was just what I needed to refocus, be grateful and move forward. Sometimes we all need a little bit of a positive kick in the butt. In fact, I've decided this week is going to be all about some HAPPY!!!!! There is just way too much sadness around and dag nab it, we deserve some happy!


This weekend was lots of fun playing around in Bunnyville. I decided it was time for us to make another postcard project. Getting art in the mail, instead of bills, is much more exciting and happy. This postcard is fast, it's easy and it's as sweet as summer itself! Well ok, maybe I've been eating a bunch of watermelon balls lately. Yummy!

Here is my "Watermelon Postcard."


The pattern is FREE, but I also have 9 kits available (that's all I'll have) if you would like one. Each kit will make two postcards. Hop over HERE for the pattern and the kits. NOTE: When you print out the pattern, make sure your printer is on the landscape setting!



Also, I want to remind you that today is the last day to receive the 20% discount for pre-ordering my Fabled Fusions book. I can't hardly wait for October when the book arrives. I know you are going to have lots of fun with these designs!


Next, after an overwhelming response to my "One of a Kind Wednesday" last week, I decided to change the format this week in order to better accommodate friends around the world. Here's a sneaky peeky of this weeks one of a kind piece. It is from my first book, Briarside Lane.

At 12:00 a.m EST on Wednesday until 6:00 p.m. EST this piece will be up for "bid." If you are interested in purchasing it, simply email me with your bid. There will be a starting bid price. I am not eBay, so this won't be an up to the minute account of where you stand. Simply give me your best bid price up front in an email. At 6:00 p.m. the bidding will close. The highest bidder (who then pays the invoice) will get the piece.

Ok now onto the giveaway. After all, it its mid month madness!


The prize this month is my postcard. If you are the winner, I will address it to you and mail it right away. Note: our giveaways are always open to friends around the world. To enter, leave a comment on this post. As always, if you are signed up on the right sidebar as a dear friend/follower, you get two chances because the bunnies and I are so truly glad to have you with us on our adventures!


Harrington and Hannah (when not on a break) will use the random number generator to choose the winner this Friday, July 19. Good luck and bunny ears crossed!


Alrighty then, go play, make some art, know that you are loved, and your friendship is a gift to us.

xx,
Michelle and the Bunnies

Good morning my beloved ones!!!!!!! Now isn't this the cutest thing in the world...."A SWEET SLICE OF SUMMER." Oh yes, YES! And these postcards of yours are a magical treat, and I will always treasure mine, that is behind glass!

You are so right about staying positive. There is so much negativity that comes from PEOPLE, not GOD.....not from the highest power that has OUR GOOD in mind. We too are sitting on pins and needles wondering if my husband will truly lose his job next academic year, but all I can do is try to get a good position NOW. I am waiting to hear this week from a high school I interviewed at, and if I can land this, it will be the beginning of hope for us, at least for now.

Keep on creating, and yes, let us all spend this very day creating, doing what we love, and carrying on.

OK HANNAH-BANANA and Harrington.....HOP TO IT!

How fabulous to sit down at my computer, on my covered deck, having seen TWO gorgeous and plump rabbits on my path, and to now see YOUR comment. Yes, hanging around the right people who have a positive attitude is the only way to live. ANd I am so glad to have you in MY LIFE!

Oh - I just got a phone call from the French teacher who did a French interview; he seemed to like me so now I just need to hear back from the principal and see if I get the job.

BUNNY EARS CROSSED for sure! Love ya, Anita
