the long lost drafts – “Chapter fifty-six – The Bunny’s map”

I have found some long lost drafts in my Dashboard, things I wrote at the end of last year – all edited and ready-to-post but somehow forgot to click that Publish/Schedule button. classic. so I thought I should dig those drafts out of their grave and give them new life – even an outdated life is better than the trash bin! 😀

back in July I received the sweet Travelling Bunny many of you have seen stitched or hopping around the blogosphere.

here are my previous posts about him, for those who need catching up 😉

the travelling pattern, the Little Bunny’s travels, engulfed by the mysteries, the resoluteness, the guy needs a passport, maybe two, we have a winner.

in the attempt to trace back his journey, I contacted all his previous hosts, wrote a recap (take a look at this post) and then decided to print a map, pin all the locations and include it to the Travelling Bunny Kit I would send to his next host.

in order to spot the right place, I used a monocular to read this incredibly detailed map 😀

I also wrote a Travelling Journal (similar to the one I kept when Madam Muriel was here, which my computer very wisely erased twice. AH! 😦 ) which is now available in PDF for you to download and browse, just click on the following link. I spent a lot of time editing it, adding hyperlinks, pictures, info and everything, it’s pretty cool stuff! 😀

Travelling Bunny’s Journal

it’s also a bit heavy – 6 pages loaded with high quality pictures, text and links – so give him the time to load, I promise you it’ll be worth it! 🙂

if you know anything about this sweet, fluffy guy let me know. I would love to see where he’s been since he left the neighbourhood! 😉

Happy Easter!

  1. Bunny is here! He’s spent a very wet December in Auckland, New Zealand. He arrived via Wisher, in Singapore…he’ll be leaving me shortly. I’m planning to post in the next few days 🙂
