So I had some fun creating a treasury of bears that might travel easily to work. The treasury includes a number of bears have been created by members of the Etsy Rabbits team.
I had a spot of fun today in honor of Leo. It is coming up on a year with him next month. That has me thinking polka dots, spotted rabbits, manly rabbits with mustaches. So I created a treasury of items on Etsy that makes me think of Leo. If they had a rabbit with bangs like Leo that would have been great. Only Leo seems to have the troll doll-like mop top. I haven’t seen a picture of another rabbit with the same banging bangs.
The Etsy Rabbits team has been hard at work today spreading the joy of International Rabbit Day by creating treasuries. It is a lovely way to let people know about team shops who are rabbit lovers and many are involved in or support rabbit rescue work. We have a dozen new treasuries from the last 24 hours posted on the International Rabbit Day 2012 events page. There are so many beautiful things you can check out if you are looking for gifts for others or wanting to create your own wish list!
I hope everyone has been taking some time today to enjoy their own house rabbits or help others learn about what wonderful companions they make. Last year was the first year we had heard about International Rabbit Day. We spent that weekend a little more focused on enjoying Tigger and Shadow which was good since it turned out to be the last time we would have them with us to celebrate the day. This year we are celebrating having little Leo for the first time and having the opportunity to get to know him better with hopefully many years of celebrations ahead of us.
Coming next week, more stories about living in a home divided into multiple rabbit encampments …
Arrgggh! There are some things I can’t resist! I saw on Etsy that today is Talk Like a Pirate Day. I could not resist looking up all the great Pirabbit things I knew to be available and creating a showcase treasury for some of them. I have added this treasury and three other new ones to our page for 2012 International Rabbit Day page. Enjoy!
Coming tomorrow, another story about how Portia met Tigger and Shadow and still stayed with us as her furever home …
The Etsy Rabbits team has been even harder at work creating some really lovely treasuries in honor of International Rabbit Day coming soon on Saturday, September 22nd. The number of treasuries on our new Events section page for 2012 International Rabbit Day page has doubled from 12 to 24! The treasury pictured on the left has items from just 16 members of the Etsy Rabbits team. The team currently has more than 300 rabbit loving members in countries around the world.
You can click on individual treasury images and will be taken to the treasury on Etsy so you can view all the lovely items larger. Once you are over on the Etsy treasuries, you will be able to click on item images to be taken to the listing pages for the items if you want more info or to buy.
This is where I fess up. I had planned a story on Portia for last Thursday and it was one of those weeks where I needed someone following me around reminding me what day it was. So I blew it and completely lost track of time the end of last week and went off the calendar schedule. I will have another story about Portia this Thursday …
The Etsy Rabbits team has been hard at work creating some really lovely treasuries in honor of International Rabbit Day coming soon on Saturday, September 22nd. I started out trying to Tweet them as they came along, but they got a bit ahead of me. So to catch up and allow an easy place for people to follow, I created a new Event section here on Rabbittude with a 2012 International Rabbit Day page showing all the treasuries created so far to get the word out about the day. You can click on individual treasury images and will be taken to the treasury on Etsy so you can view all the lovely items larger. Once you are over on the Etsy treasuries, you will be able to click on item images to be taken to the listing pages for the items if you want more info or to buy.
Enjoy! I will have another story about Portia on Thursday …
I created a treasury of dark and wonderful items on Etsy with a rabbit twist. Click on the image above to view the full treasury and read what is behind Dark with Rabbits. You will find the answer in my Curator’s description just below the pictures.
Most spooky tales have cautionary elements to them. So, this isn’t based on personal experience.
This treasury is part of a Nonteam Challenge that runs each week from noon on Thursday until noon on Sunday. Everyone creating a treasury must build it around one challenge item. This week it is The Reading Tree by Emerald Town Raven photo in the top.
Looking at Emerald Town Raven’s shop, I saw some beautiful photos of cats. I was thinking about the length of time for the challenge, 72 hours. The idea of cats, the mystery of them and 72 hours combined together into a who done it mystery show feel for me and I went looking for items that would go along with that.
I loved using the muscadine grape-vine chews from Magic Happens Rabbit Rescue. It looked like a group of potential evidence with its “B” crime scene label marker in place. All in all, this was a lot of fun to create.
Okay, so yesterday I said today I would have a bit of a surprise. Surprise, I goofed when I created this yesterday and it was released on Etsy from the wrong user account instead of Rabbittude as I had intended. Then I almost forgot to post it today. So, doubly embarrassed rabbit here. While I was getting this post ready, I was surprised when a leader on the Etsy Rabbits team pointed out that Etsy has the day listed on their dates to remember for September as being, Sunday the 25th.
So isn’t that just the way with event planning. Two coordinators check dates with different people or sources and the next thing you know, you have people being notified about two different dates. For Etsy we will make it the International Rabbits Day WEEKEND, September 24 – 25th.
Whoo Hoo! We will get ready for a two-day party of rabbits bouncing around and into view as much as possible as we treasure the days by creating lots of treasuries to promote the now over 100 shops of the Etsy Rabbits team members.
This is the final treasury that where all items are from Etsy Rabbit team member shops to highlight all the variety on the team. Tomorrow I will share an invitation treasury and a story. Party planning almost always has an oops and this one does too …
Today a cute and colorful treasury of mostly bunny rabbit items created by members of the Etsy Rabbits team. The variety in exploring the shops is bunderful! Tomorrow I will have my last treasury rounding out the Etsy Rabbits team members who were members at the start of September and don’t have their shops on vacation. I plan a few more bunny rabbit themed treasuries up through International Rabbit Day that will include team members but will also widen out to even more of the bunny rabbit items available from all shops on Etsy.
