Hello ‘shabbilicious’ friends,
These are new and uncharted times…. our routines and world feel different right now and isolation can be challenging.
Being someone that works from home anyway, staying safe and staying home hasn’t been a great change for me, but naturally there are things I miss…. like hugs. I’m a notorious touchy, feely ‘hugger’. I hug when saying hello and I hug for a goodbye… and well, just about any reason really.
As weird and as challenging as life might feel right now, I want to encourage you to remain positive and think about when this is all over (and it will be over)… perhaps think about the things we’ll look forward to doing again…. like hugging!
And while I’ve been reflecting on this in my craft room today, I looked around and my sweet bunnies made me smile…. and I knew right then that I wanted to create a bunny to make you SMILE too.
So I created this sweet ‘spring bunny amongst the peonies’ as my gift to YOU.
May she bring some cheer to your day!!
My Spring Bunny stands 15 cm tall and can be fussy cut… I also added in another smaller one that would be perfect to use on a card or tag or in a journal.
How to Download the Spring Bunny Printable
This is a single page printable in a PDF file that can be downloaded as either an A4 or Letter (USA) size file.
I printed my Spring Bunny on a sheet of 250 gram matte photo paper, which was heavy enough to hold its shape, allowing it to be used in vignettes etc.
Simply download, print and cut out with either sharp pointy nosed scissors or a craft knife.
I’ve added the Spring Bunny printable to my newsletter subscribers Member’s Printables page.
Don’t forget, the password is on the latest newsletter email and will also be in the email going out today.
Not yet a Shabby Art Boutique newsletter subscriber? That’s okay…. you can subscribe to my newsletter here to gain access to the free printables.
I send out a newsletter usually twice a month and your subscription comes with FREE unlimited access to the Member’s Printable Library.
[PIN for later… and so others may also enjoy this bunny]
On reflection, I do believe that these challenging times also create opportunities….. and a time to RESET.
We might have less face to face time right now, but that creates bonus time to work on self.
TIME to be creative. TIME to give to others in support. TIME to learn new skills. TIME to nurture self. TIME to build on wellness and strength.
We need to remind ourselves that this WILL NOT last forever.
How we can connect….
We might be social distancing right now, but luckily we can still connect with others online.
I know I’ve taken great pleasure from the positive crafting community we have in my Facebook group, Simply Shabbilicious. If you’ve not joined yet, please do and I promise we’ll lift your spirits with our inspiring shares and crafty chatter.
Happy crafting my friends!

This post is precious, Kerryanne, in word and images. Thank you for the encouragement today, and for the sweet bunnies, as well. God Bless you, and Happy Easter week.
That’s kind of you Debbie… thank you!
I know so many people are doing it tough right now and all I can offer is a positive attitude and art.
deb Newton says
He’s so sweet and so are you!! Thank you for taking the time to create him for us! You always make me smile
Awww Deb…. you are the sweetest. Thank you lovely!!
It’s not much. but hopefully a cute little bunny can make a few people smile 🙂
He’s stunning, and will look wonderful on the table! Thanks so much for the thoughtfulness, and the beauty. Our world needs both.
Oh, I’m so glad you like my spring bunny Cheryl.
We can never have too many smiles or kindness, that’s for sure.
SHE’S stunning, sorry about that Miss Bunny.
Marilyn McLeod says
She’s so pretty! thank you! I think she needs to be printed on really heavy board or cardstock, and have a pretty bow around her neck! Can’t believe Easter is almost here already! Marilyn
I used a thicker card to print on Marilyn and my little bunny is leaning up against a vase in a vignette quite nicely.
It sure doesn’t feel like Easter this year, that’s for sure.
Paula Afonso says

Thank you Paula.
I wish the same for you my friend.

Merci pour ce gentil lapin . Bonnes fêtes de Pâques .
Happy Easter Michele!
New here – so glad I found you – your creations are BEAUTIFUL and I love the Bunny.
Thank you for the encouragement in these chaotic times. Blessed Easter to you! 🙂
Welcome Linda, I’m so pleased you found your way here to Shabby Art Boutique. May you be constantly inspired and find something to keep your hands busy.
What a sweet little bunny!
Thanks so much Alexandra ?
Hope you’ve had an enjoyable Easter.
Kerryanne, the rabbit is just beautiful! I subscribe to your club and I love all of the downloads. How you source your vintage images and create such lovely usages for them is amazing. I can’t wait to see what you will do next! Thank you for your inspiration.
I’m so glad you are enjoying the Handmade Club Betsy.
Finding vintage images, especially Victorian, is an addiction and I get super excited when I find something that I’ve not seen before. I also enjoy repairing time worn images so they can be re-loved….. but without a doubt, what I enjoy most though is pairing the vintage images from long ago with new art to bring them back to life again.
I’m always thrilled when I inspire someone!
