Hockey Night in Canada!

I watched my grandson play hockey tonight. Here's the team getting their pre-game pep talk.
 Taking pictures was no easy task. 
Half the time I didn't know who was who, never mind what the rules were.
Here's the poor guy stuck in the penalty box. 
There he is number 18, a Defenceman, he's big for his age.  
Always ready for action.
Then down he goes, a stick to the neck.
But not for long. Racing to the puck!
60 second rest period.
Contemplating his next move. 
Ready for a pass.
Shaking hands after a good game, a tie, 2 to 2. And all's well in hockey town.

Christmas Cards are Here!

I've been working really hard making Christmas cards and here's what I've created. 
Twelve new designs! They come individually wrapped or in two different variety packs. It's been a real labour of love and took much longer than I expected but I'm very pleased with what I've accomplished. 
It was so much fun coming up with these designs and figuring out my new camera.

 And now I'm all revved up for Valentine's Day!

Christmas, Again?

 Where does the time go? Seems like only yesterday I was posting about Christmas and this time last year was just the beginning for my little Rare Rabbits Designs. 
Even though I'm still finding my way through my creative business and knitting bunnies is thoroughly wonderful, I must say. I thought over the next few weeks I'd try my hand at card making and bookmarks.
I spent the day taking a few practise shots.


"Oops! Vintage? You never said it was a vintage! What's a vintage?"

Bunnies don't know from vintage. Never ask a bunny to decorate your tree. Bunnies are not big decorators. Bunnies are bouncers. End of story. 
But I loves 'em.

Gyspy Bunny Marushka is part of a Blog Hop!

Guess what, I made it! I finished my little Marushka Gypsy Bunny for my dear friend Dolly and just in time to take part in this fun blog hop! 
What's a blog hop? That's what I said to the wonderful group of artists I was so lucky enough join up with after taking Kelly Rae Roberts e-course. All I know is we're artists with blogs who encourage and help each other. It's way fun! 
I'm so happy to belong to this group of many talented women who are so caring and knowledgeable, all working towards the same goal, living a creative life. 
And this is one of the ways we're doing it, by sharing our art with everyone!
So if you want to have a look at some fabulous artists, 
hop around (perfect expression) and visit all my sistas. And don't be shy leave a comment, that's half the fun!
