    Thank you so much, Babybunnywrigley & Dajeti :)
    You both are so sweet!! The little girl in the portrait I did isactually a bit of my daughter (when she was smaller) crosses with myneice, Olivia, who's 6. The both love bunnies so much, so it was prettyeasy to use them as models, with as often as they hold all the buns andjust smile at them the whole time!!!

    Hello, I'm not sure if anyone would rememberme...I haven't been on in a looong time. I check up on herefrom time to time to see the cute bunny pictures and such.

    My Emmit and Amelia are doing wonderful. We finally got thembonded after 5 months. The two are inseperable now andincredibly adorable. Amelia really came around aswell. She was so shy when we first adopted her, but now she'sthe queen of the room. She's such a love - she loves to kissand lay with you. Emmit hasn't changedmuch. He is still super stubborn and adorable. Ofcourse he is still a lovabun and thrives on attention from Martin, me,and Amelia May. He's a chub though now too - we think he'smore of a French lop because he's just so much bigger than a minilop. His feet have grown to 6 inches, and he's about 7 lbsnow.

    I've also been fostering bunnies for a local rescue. One Ihave now, Beatrice, looks like a mini Emmit, but she's deathlyshy. I did have her sister, Ramona for a while too, but theystopped getting along and now she's in another foster. Theyare both from a cruelty case.

    Anyway, I was on here today and saw the beautiful paintings bysandhills_rabbitsandI was just blown away! I was wondering how I could get intouch with you, Annie,and if you would have time in yourschedule to paint a picture of mytwobuns. My fiance and I are gettingmarried in a few months and we're moving into our first home and we'vebeen searching for paintings and pictures to hang up. Thiswould just be perfect! Please e-mail me atcey110@psu.edu with details, prices,and any other information.

    Thank you so much. It was great to see everyone again :)

    -Carrie

    PS: here is a picture of my Emmit and Amelia May

    Here's another portrait..... I've still got otherpeople's portraits to finish up on. I'm really sorry about the delay.Things have been very hectic and crazy here, but that's way too long ofa story to tell right now. I'll have to save it for my Sandhills Familythread.

    This one's called "working in the garden", and was inspired by apicture of a bunny next to a shovel that I stumbled across on the net.

    Here's another one.... it reminds me a lot of theBo painting I did awhile ago of him relaxing. This one's called"sleeping beauty". It isnt Bo, but it really makes me think of him...

    Lol!! Thanks so much for the compliments on the painting, VNess, Lyndsy, RaspberrySwirl, and Lizabeth332. :)

    Also, thanks for the kind words on the website. It's still a work inprogress, and still needs some things done to it (like i've still gotto update my phone number, even though I've had a new number for almost3 weeks now!!!)

    VNess, I'm working on your bunny painting. I'm also currently workingon paintings for Carolyn, Lissa, and the list goes on and on. Iapologize to everyone that's been waiting so patiently for theirpaintings.

    I've felt like i've gotten so off track lately (well, it's beenon-going with all the sickness going around and getting all thereptiles & reptile artwork ready for the show coming up.) I promisethat I will get my rear into gear and get some more paintings postedmore often then i've been doing lately.

    I got your address, and sent off your portrait not quite two weeks ago.Because it was leaving the states and going to Canada I had to send itvia registered mail. (Thank goodness I did that, because of situationslike this happening!). The registered mail # on the parcel is:RB964717822US. It also had postal insurance on it (thank goodness,again!). It was my understanding when I shipped the portrait off thatwith it being registered that you would have to sign for the parcel....

    I dont have too much experience with shipping to Canada, but haveshipped elsewhere (such as England and Australia) and know that theirshipping can take awhile. I didnt think it would take this long for youto recieve your portrait though, just because Canada is right next tothe states.

    If you havent gotten your portrait by Monday (maybe it's delayed due tothe holiday) I'll doing some checking with the postal service, and seewhat I can find out about the whereabouts of the portrait. Worse casescenerio would be having to ship out another print, which would causeeven more delay. I'm just glad that I made sure to get insurance andregistration on it before sending it out!

    They are 8x12s (give or take a few milimeters or so). I sure hope that portrait finds it's way to you okay!

    So far i've only had one print that didnt make it to it's owner(ILuvMahBuns) and I sent out a duplicate. The 2nd one I sent arrivedwith no problems. It really is a God-send to be able to insure theportraits when shipping, because to be honest I am always so nervousshipping through the Postal Service.

    :shock:That's amazing! I love it!

    Although you can tell the rabbit is painted (it's probably just becauseit was scanned and the details don't show so well --I stillthink it's GREAT!) but the blanket looks like it's a picture.:shock:I'm amazed at your talent.
