Sometimes life gives you an interesting curveball. Or, in our case, it gives you a cute, little fluffball!
In early May, my oldest asked if she could have a bunny. A classmate was giving one away and had asked her if she wanted it. We had talked about getting her a guinea pig in the fall for her birthday, so it wasn’t a completely outlandish request. Fall/summer. Guinea pig/bunny. Sort of the same thing, right? I admit that I was slightly swayed by my memories of the pet bunny I had as a kid, so I said yes. And then I convinced my husband. A day later, the bun was ours (I mean my daughter’s ;)) and had been christened Marshmello, because she’s fluffy like a marshmallow and the colour of a burnt one. Shortly after that, I was planning a bracelet for her!
My only bunny bead was the Ohm Bunny Reaper and I didn’t think that it properly reflected her sweet personality. And none of ones that I found in my searches quite captured her expressive face. I finally settled on the Trollbeads Easter Bunny, but had to wait until July when I found it in a sale.
I added the wood beads since she’s a bit of a chewer (wood and paper being her favourites) and the black beads for her silky fur. Then I began to think about what else makes her the cute little fuzzbutt that we know and love.
The first thing that popped into my mind was a teddy bear bead, because she loves to lick the teddy bears in my daughter’s room! Sadly, I don’t have and and couldn’t justify buying one just for this combo. But, I did add the Black Sheep since she also loves lying on top of a stuffed sheep and using it as her personal throne.
The Trust/Love bead and Smiley are for how much she makes us smile. And the Brainiac for how smart she is!
If there was a bead for how stinkin’ cute she is, I would add it. But these pics will have to suffice.
