The Joy of Living

This is Yuuji.  And this is what all of the buns do. 
They popcorn into the air a foot or two high, all of the sudden,
for no reason at all but for a joyful heart.
And this is why I don't eat meat...
because animals feel the joy of being alive as much as you and I.
I just love this photo so much.

Loving a Wayward Change of Plans

When I was younger I always had visions of a home.
A house made awesome alongside my love.
I also simultaneously dreamed of travelling the world, always coming back to said cozy abode.
I love how plans change for the better when we aren't even looking.

I love that this life right now and this little home we've made together is so cozy, so complete,
that we barely want to leave it!  Especially since we've filled it to the brim with bunnies!!
Sure the dream to travel is still present
but somehow it's not half as pressing, as important or even in some strange way quite so desirable.
Because somehow in the beautiful crazy way that life works,
bundling up and shoveling a driveway whilst buns whip around snowy pathways
and then all going back inside chilly and ready for hot cocoa's and a crackling fire...
just being in the sweet shelter that we've all built together...
can in some bizarre lovely way feel just as delicious &
soul-warming as a trip to any tropical place!
I just LOVE that, so so very very much...don't you?

Isn't She Lovely...Isn't She Wonderful?

Here's my latest Ink drawing...
Inspired by our buzzy honey-bee Teela.
Isn't she lovely?  Isn't she w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l?? (yes I am listening to Stevie Wonder, ha ha!)

Lionhead Snow Play & Snarls

Emmett hasn't been an easy rabbit.
He hides, he growls, he bites & scratches and fights with the other buns...our poor little babe.
We've actually talked about changing his name from Emmett (Min-Min) to Oscar the Grouch, ha ha!
But we always remember that he's had really rough beginnings...he's extremely untrusting.
Though, he's very well behaved when it comes to using his potties, not chewing, etc.

But atleast for some small portion of each day, we see him mellow and trust a teeny tiny bit more.
He allows us to rest our heads against his for a few minutes at a time for a lovely warm snuggle.
He'll climbs all over our backs and legs (he just seems extrememly afraid of hands).
And he popcorns out of the blue, usually in the evenings
....when he popcorns we know we're doing a good job...and that feels SO good.

Awesome, Hard, Sweet & Cute

We had such an awesome long weekend.
We mostly stayed indoors because we reached the freezing -40's....brrrr!
It was crappy at the same time  too though because
we both had really bad migraines & headaches for 3 days straight.
Anyhow, I was working on these two beauties this morning...
usually I work in the living room in the mornings, as I wake up, eat my breakfast,
drink my soy espresso and keep company with the cutest work-mate ever! Flynn.
How adorable is that face of his, omg!
So far the head-pain is gone today, so far! So I as I work away
'Father of the Bride' movies play in the background.
I think it's going to be a productive day.
How was your weekend & how's your weeks shaping up??

Kissing In Sunlight, What Could Be Better

With the winter sunshine usually comes a pounding head...
something about the barometric change and the blood vessels in my noggin just not liking it!
But the sunshine also brings out the cozy's & sleepies in the buns too
So, yep, I am good...even if I get nothing done today by snuggle up by these two.

Can You Blame Me!!!

This is me...with ink pens & sketchbook in hand and a little hottot spot for company.
Flynn is one of the best rabbits to be around,
he's so hilarious & happy & bonkers and the more you laugh the sillier he gets.
...really! can ya blame me for drawing rabbits all the time!
Makes perfect sense to me, rabbits make up a large portion of my social circle, ha ha.
Here's a sneak peek at one of my newest pictures too, she's so pretty, I can't wait to show you.

It Takes Little

Did you have a good weekend?
For me, more often than not, a great weekend involves staying in...
with good food, good company and a great read....ahhhh.
(oh and binge watching "Mozart In The Jungle", I love it, have you seen it?) 
I think it's crucial to always strive for the 'big stuff', whatever that may be
but I think it's also so important to never lose appreciation for all the sweet small stuff,
for it's that stuff that binds all together to be just as awesome as the big.
Don't ya think?

Dose of Cute and FUZZY

Frenwyck thought it would be a good idea to pop in and say HI...
We are concerned about everyone getting their dose of cute after all.

I am drawing in the sunlight.
'Road to Avonlea' episodes are playing in the background as I work.
What are you up to??
Any exciting weekend plans???

Buns & Blubs

The sun is shining and whiles, yes, my head is pounding...
when I wake up to most of my days starting off with this...
with bunnies begging for blueberries...
Well, it really does kind of snap things into perspective pretty quickly, ha ha.
It really does make it impossibly hard to NOT find the joy and sweetness in a day.
I truly do have rabbits to thank for my joyful heart & happy outlook on life.  Thanks Babies XO.

Temporarily Shut Down

I just wanted to let you know that my Etsy shop is temporarily closed.
I've never shut it down before
but I found it necessary to do so in order to make much needed changes.
We should be back up and running on the 19th of February...
Prices will change but that's only to reflect the much more beautiful prints that will now be offered.
Hope your having an awesomely joy-filled day.
