I have a serious crush on vintage Springtime decorations. At the turn of the 19th century, there was decoration after decoration and postcard after postcard of a fluffy bunny pulling a cart of flowers or candies. By the 1920's and 30's, illustrations became more graphic in style and less painterly, but the cart concept stayed put.
In homage to these early depictions of the Easter Bunny, I designed my first-in-series Springtime Paper Craft Freebie. Sage, here is 2" tall, and together with his wagon, he measures 6" long.
Have one for free.
We're putting one card in every package that goes out
this Spring from www.HeatherBaileyStore.com, while supplies last. To
craft up your own little bunny, all you will need is a pair of
scissors, a glue stick, and a tool for scoring fold lines; I like to
use the rounded tip of a crochet hook or an embossing tool.
There's no promo code to enter. One white bunny will mysteriously hop his way into every package. Happy Spring, everyone!

And you know what that means -- good odds. Leave a comment here to enter. The drawing takes place March 31, 2010. Go check out their fun, new show. The first episode is about pincushions.

Hello, btw! It's been a nutzy couple of months. Fortunately, several big design projects are moving from Hide-N-Hush status to Show-N-Tell status. For starters, my new stationery collection started shipping to stores this week, including invitations, note cards, paper plates, napkins, notepads. Wait till you see. They are so cool. Of course, new Hide-N-Hush projects are in the works. This drives my blabbity-share-everything self crazy. Thus, the bunny-wagon design -- dreamed up, designed, printed & posted in a matter of days. Love that.
