A few months back, there was a comment that putting our marching dust bunnies on a bumper sticker would be a great idea. I missed that when it was first posted, but found it recently. It was one of those that is a terrific idea, why didn’t I think of it moments. Today I had the opportunity to create the bumper sticker and the Dust Bunny Bumper sticker is now available in our CafePress shop as a single, a 10 pack or a 50 pack of bumper stickers.
It is wonderful when people contact us through the website or our shops and ask if we can do something based on other things that we have. Many times those are good ideas for things that we can easily do, we just didn’t think of it. So we really appreciate suggestions and questions about whether something is possible.
Some new products we create and occasionally a whole line begins with a suggestion or question from a follower or potential customer. We really appreciate hearing what people think or would like. Sometimes I’ve had beads hiding in a drawer waiting for an idea and someone’s question or comment about what they would like to see for jewelry or an accessory helps me to realize how the beads were meant to be used.
So thank you all for being so wonderful asking questions, providing feedback and suggestions. We appreciate that so much!
This is the story of Shadow and parsley. Rabbits are sometimes really weird for no explainable reason that we humans can figure out. Shadow had a bizarre reaction his whole life to parsley.
When we would wash parsley and first put it down for him and Tigger, Tigger would dig in and eat it with no problem. Shadow would sniff it and run away and I do mean run away. If we picked up a piece of the parsley and took it to where he was and put it down in front of him, he would run away again. He acted as if it was something out to get him. After awhile, I began to picture it as Attack of the Killer Parslay.
Eventually after the parsley had been down on the floor for a while, Shadow would eventually come and eat it. It was so weird though that he reacted with the terrified run away reaction every time it was first put down.
Tigger and Portia did not have any parsley problems and Leo doesn’t now. We have no idea why Shadow was so upset by parsley at first each and every time.
Blaine had an idea for a design: a line of hopping away hares called Receding Hare Line. I created a couple of versions of artwork. Later while looking at the bumper sticker options available in our CafePress store, I realized a single line of the receding hares would work as a bumper sticker.
Get Off My Tail ! came quite quickly to mind for the wording. I really hate the tailgating traffic here in Atlanta that leads to quite a few accidents. Blaine and I have both been rear ended by drivers not paying attention.
It also occurred to me that this could be really great on lockers or cubicle walls. You can send a message you are stressed out by too much supervision. We have this on a file cabinet where we store a lot of bunny supplies. The message would be for our rabbits if they could read, since they dance around us like crazy when we go into the cabinet to get something for them.
This is currently our top-selling item in our CafePress shop. It is available as a single bumper sticker or in multi packs. So there are a couple of levels of discounted pricing available if you would like to purchase for a group or for resale.
