The Journal of Unusal Events!!

What started out as a character for PFATT has turned into an experience that I decided to add to my" journal of unusual events"! First of the events was getting 37 requests for this little guy from PFATT Marketplace of which I only took 6. Next was the ordering of the paperclay that UPS felt delivering to my garage in the middle of a snow storm would be easy for me to find! Needless to say if wasn't discovered until days later buried under 2 feet of snow and totally useless. After dealing with UPS and receiving another order I started to work. Now mind you my poor customers ordered these February 10th. Okay next event was dealing with power outages and freezing temps in my workroom because of no heat...again clay cracks and crumples ...so we begin again. Second time for their faces seem to work and my power remained on. Thanks to Susan Walker (Prim and Proper) I was able to cover small imperfections and make them look just how they are suppose to. Next event, finding dark blue paint when the whole surrounding area has not had any trucks delivering anything for weeks including food! Again we wait! Now it takes 3 days to complete one and I am trying to do six....Next event...supplier sent me the wrong wire for the glasses and forgot to send the chains for the watches....more waiting. As of yesterday they received their feet and watches and just waiting for their umbrellas with a a hopeful shipping date of this Monday! This is one White Rabbit that is definitely LATE for a very important date!

Pam,
They are wonderful rabbits! Very Alice in Wonderish looking. I can see why so many folks wanted them.
What an ordeal! But your sparkling wit shines throughout the telling. Keep your terrific creations and patterns coming. (But also get outside once it's warm enough in your area and relax and play some). : )
Hugs from,
Cindy
