Wishlist Wednesday

In two weeks, I will be hosting a jewellery party for the super talented Angelene!

I will need a few things to get ready...

Invitations to send out to my lucky friends from Benconservato

A platter from ArtDecadence for all the tasty treats

A set (or two) of coasters from Morphologica for the drinks to be placed on

And, most importantly of all... some beautiful jewellery from Ange!

New shop is open!

We have been very busy bunnies, setting up a new webpage so you can now buy our fabrics and buttons in Australian Dollars!

The new shop can be found at or by clicking the new link button on the right!

A load of new fabrics are available in our Australian store that won't be listed on Etsy. Some are quite limited stocks and most are all the way from Japan.

We will still be on Etsy - we love it too much to leave. We are planning to focus the Etsy store towards our handmade items and will be making a small range of goodies featuring our fabrics.

Let us know what you think of our new direction!

Wishlist Wednesday

Normally, I post these over at Zombie Hare but I have decided that they really belong over here at Voodoo Rabbit. Both Ky & I are burning the candle at both ends recently. We have a project in the works that will see a change in direction for Voodoo Rabbit - hopefully a successful one.

I'm so tired though, that I felt a Wishlist themed around sleep was in order...

I have been living with this as my motto lately so this messenger bag from RainbowSwirlz totally fits my life right now.
However, caffeine is a fickle beast. In order to fix my sleep deprivation issues, I'm going to have to slip on one of these cute little Raccoon masks from LeNekoNoir...

Maybe then, I can finally achieve a good night of this...

If a zen-like dream state isn't possible for me, like these bunnies from SavageArtworks are enjoying, then I'm going to take some inspiration from Little Mo & Friends and bunk out for a picnic slumber in the middle of the day tomorrow.

Just so long as there is a cute mousey & a squirrel there to watch over me...

Cool Thing From Japan - Totoro Jigsaw Puzzle

I picked up this really cute 150 piece Totoro jigsaw puzzle while I was in Japan. The best thing about it is that you could buy a little frame to display it in.

Totoro Jigsaw Puzzle

I got it from a toy shop called Yamashiroya, accross the road from the JR Ueno train station. All of the jigsaw puzzles are in the basement level, and you can buy a frame for any of the puzzles that they sell.

Where have the bunnies been?

It has been ages since we've updated the blog - sorry. Ky & I have been in Japan for most of February. Japan is heaven if you are seriously into textiles. The cotton prints there are amazing! We did a LOT of shopping in Fabric Town (Nippori, Tokyo). Between us, we brought back 103m of fabric!
Yesterday was the monster photoshoot so we can update the shop with the haul from Japan. It took us 9.5 hours and the processing / editing hasn't been done yet. Thank goodness Matt has awesome lighting equipment & magic pixies in his camera. There was no sunlight yesterday and his camera / lighting rig set up meant that we could still get the pics taken.

The trip wasn't all shopping for fabric though - I went to Hokkaido for the Sapporo Snow & Ice Festival, and to attempt skiing (which we shall not speak about). Near Sapporo is a place called Mt Moiwa with a cable car to the top. From there, you catch this to get to the summit:


Check out the logo on the side! It is actually a squirrel but it looks so much like a Voodoo Rabbit that I needed to share him with you.

PS: In Ky's last post she complained about how cold it was in Tokyo. At that time I was leaving Furano. It was -16 degrees celcius & snowing. I win!
