The Fuzzy Bunny is now located above ground! It's about time I had some natural light. The new Fuzzy Bunny world headquarters have enough space for a girl and her rabbit to live, as well as generous space for the creation of yarn and soap. I'll take photographs of the workspace once I actually have it organized, but for now, here's a floorplan:
My landlord has done a great job of remodeling the place...note the curved hallway/bathroom. It's so spectacular and roomy and bright! I don't know if I'll ever get over it. I may have to be pried from the location in a year when I know I'll be moving again...when I'll graduate and have to get a 'real' job. But for now, I'll enjoy it, and hopefully use my extra space to create.

We all knew I couldn't go very long without a rabbit, and at the end of the academic year someone emailed me looking for someone to adopt a rabbit. Of course I couldn't say no...so here she is: Lenni the rabbit. She was born in August 2006, she's a very social mini lop who constantly gets herself into trouble, and her hobbies include eating entire packets of seeds, climbing furniture, and mumbling as she hops*. I'm hoping that once we're completely moved into the new place that I can adopt a rescue rabbit and together they can rule the place. I so need a bunny cam...
*Before you all think I'm crazy, rabbits really do mumble sometimes. It sort of sounds like they have creaky bones, but it's an actual noise they make.

I had all sorts of dreams about how laid back and relaxing this summer was going to be, but instead it's the exact opposite. I'm moving, doing a full time internship at a land trust, working a work-study job at school, studying for the MPRE, still working on painting and installing things in the place I'm moving into, and in the middle of buying a car. Not to mention trying to keep my etsy store stocked...while people keep buying everything! Granted, I'm not complaining about the sales, that's exciting, I just need to figure out how to produce enough to grow, but maintain sanity at the same time. And find time to sleep.
It's my exciting new bedroom closet, freshly painted!

OK, well it was really just the front page of ETSY (thanks to darlene123 for picking my soap set for her treasury), but I still feel special. And, it meant that I immediately sold the soap set that was featured. I'm finally down to the last bar of soap made with my old recipe and my new soap is slowly seeping into my store. Now, I just need to make enough to keep up with the demand, both online and off...

It's been a long time, and it's definitely time to start posting again. So many new things to mention! I'll be reviewed by Wickedly Chic at the end of August, I'll be mentioned in an article in the Bejeezus zine, and my soap and lip balm (and wallets are coming soon!) can now be found at All Things Art on Main Street in Canandaigua, NY (where I grew up). More info to come on the above mentioned items, and I'll link to them where possible. In the meantime, here are photos from the new soap line and a couple of custom made duct tape wallets:
