Artful Thursday ~ Week 11

Before I begin today's project, I do have an little announcement to make. I know some of you are new to my blog, but a few of you have been know me since my old blog and have seen the following statement before:

We are moving...A-G-A-I-N!!! We are moving to Huntsville, Alabama. It's about 2 hours north of where we are now. I haven't said anything on here, but we have spent the last two weeks looking for a new home to live in. And like usual, there are always little small things that happen that just make me want to pull my hair out, but I am learning in my latter years, that no matter how upset I get or worried I become, it will not change what was meant to be. And as I am typing this, the one house we had our hopes on to rent fell through. So, looks like we'll be driving back again, looking for a place to live. But my sweet hubby is already working there, driving 4 hours each day, so it's imperative that we find a house quick. And that brings to the other part, the packing part. I hate packing!! LOL!!! I have So Much Stuff, a pack-rat extraordinaire. I've been trying to do a little each day. But today I knew I must finish my Artful Thursday project and with an early day with some important matters to take care of, I quickly started in on my project. I want to apologize in advance for the lack of pictures between Before and After. I was a little distracted day, having lots on my mind. But I'm happy with the results :0 )

I purchased this a few years ago at an After-Easter sale for just a few dollars.

It's obvious the purple foil wasn't a look I was going for...

I wanted to repaint the little bunny & had a number of ideas in mind to but chose these two items as my inspiration.

Again, sorry there were no in-process pictures but here are some peaks at the final project.

He little basket...

his little tail...

Ta Da!!!

Introducing __________.
(Sorry, a name escapes me at the moment)

Here he is presiding over his prized eggs.

All ready for some Easter Fun!!

And enjoying some nice Spring weather

I will really miss views like this **sigh**

Happy Thursday!!!!



  1. great change- it looks so much better, you did a great job.

  2. hey love the quick change up - I tend not to look at things that way...but I need to have made over some real treasures.

    beautiful bunny and love the egg :D


  3. Cute project! And I like the egg in the basket, too (those are cute eggs, did you collage them yourself?)

    I wish I could think of a clever name for your creation!

  4. And good luck with the move!! I hope something great comes your way, soon.

  5. Kristal.... FOUND YOU! yippee!
    wow- moving again! geepers i think the last time we caught up you were ready to move. :o( my bad. chalk it up to a long winter with multiple illness and blah blah blah. How are you?! I would cry over missing that view! you see. the trick is. you have to NOT be so productive. no unpacking. not the bulk anyway. i moved 5 times in two years befire i found home. just lived out of boxes till i was sure it would stick. lol- not the day to day stuff- you know. just. everything. else.
    pop on over and say hello when you get a chance. new email. whisperings13 at gmail dot com. other got over spammed once the studio hit FB. ugh.
    Awesome bunny. love the finish (and the lack of purple foil- what where they thinking?) you did a GREAT job. (i stink at names.)
    ohh. i spy something in your shop...
    :o) good luck finding home darling. xoxo

  6. Kristal! Moving again? Oh dear...I wish that I was closer to you so I could help you move, but then you'd be moving farther away from me. I hope that you're able to pack lickety split and find the most perfect place for your family to live!

    Until then...that little bunny guy is so very cute! You did a fantastic job and he looks so very cute with your egg in his basket.
