It’s August?………..already?

Wow………when did that happen?  I’m shocked,  time it really does fly by…….

I can’t believe tomorrow the Crafter’s Round up is finally here,  I’ve been stabbying like crazy for weeks in preparation for it and now I’m finally starting to feel like I might not have a half empty table after all……….phew,  that’s a relief (although I’m not sure at this point what I would do  if I wasn’t feeling ok )

So remember if you are in the Chicago area to come on by to Chase Park and say hi to the critters this weekend.

I remembered that I never ever did show you guys some of my birthday goodies even though I said I would,  aren’t I awful?   Anyway to rectify this blatant blog neglect I thought I’d show you what my friend Matt sent me…..

Norman the big snow rabbit made by Etsy sellers monsters etc……..and I just absolutely love him!!!  you should check out their store for other cuties too!!  many  thanks Matt.

Mark bought me quite a few goodies,   my favourites being this cute fishy made by Michele Smith of Mud Spun Studio that I fell in love with at the art fair on the square,  he’s supposed to be a ceiling fan pull but I have him hanging up on my bathroom cabinet….

He also got me a pizza slice

A Heidi Kenney pizza slice for Kidrobot silly…………not a real pizza slice,  although that would have been greatly appreciated too……….mmmmmmmmm pizza.   I recently bought this little guy for myself on Etsy too with the pretense that it was part of my birthday……

I just loved it at first sight……it’s a vintage find from Etsy seller Bethtastic who is based in Chicago and has a lot of very cute jewelry in her shop,  and it’s perfect for me as I am born in the year of the rabbit in the Chinese zodiac…….gosh I really will find any excuse to validate my needless spending sprees won’t I?  Shameless!!

I’m off to pack up the critters for their trip to Chicago,  hope to see you this weekend.

    I absolutely adore your ring and I would really like to get a ring such as this one. I tried to track down the seller (Bethtastic) but unfortunately her account no longer exists on Etsy. Do you have any contact details of this seller? You wrote that it is a vintage find so that would mean the seller would probably have had only one ring. If so, would it be possible to make a mold from your ring?

    Kind regards,

    Oh no! I loved her store. I don’t have any info for the seller though sorry. And I’m sure this is going to sound terribly selfish, but I love thinking that there isn’t a ton of my bunny ring out there, so I’m not that keen on the idea of making a mold of it.

    Thanks for the compliments on the ring though, it makes me happy to see him bounding across my finger every day. Good luck with your quest of capturing your own bunny ring, I have faith you’ll find one.
