Whimsical Wednesdays ~ The Artist’s Corner: Etsy Shop Launch Announcement & Sneak Peak


Today’s whimsy from the Artist’s Corner is a sneak peak at what’s been creatively going on behind-the-scenes here at The Forest Portal and to announce the upcoming new Etsy shop launch many of you have been asking about. But first off, in the midst of things here, we did announce our Giveaway recipient on 2/1 – the date we originally thought we’d launch our shop, but instead made it a fun event that helped raise some small funds for rescue rabbits.

The recipient – Kelsey, a fellow bunny lover and mom of two sweet rescue bunnies – received this Magick Rabbit Orb (the first mini rabbit faery garden I created) and a surprise gift in the drawing.

She also helped raise the most money for the buns! For every entry I committed to donating $1 to a rabbit rescue, but in the end I decided to double and match the amount so that two rescues could receive a little help. We sent that off today to a larger organization, Bunny World Foundation – where we adopted our special needs bunny, Cosmo, from and to a microsanctuary devoted to rabbits and those in Ryan’s care (mostly special needs bunnies) whom we have come to love and consider part of our bunny family.

We also ended up having four other surprise recipients during the Giveaway who all received a 5% discount to use, if so inspired, on the upcoming shop launch.

Now, back to today’s share, but continuing with the theme of love.

After a lot of things shifting, some items being delayed at my printer’s office, needing more time to put everything together without pressure (because it’s all about fun and flow), and Astrid and our bunny family feeling into what day felt aligned for everything, we’ve decided upon Thursday, February 14th – Love Day – for our shop launch.

This also goes along with Astrid’s last message of love on Ask Astrid ~ Your Higher Heart Can Free You and the love my rabbit companions have cultivated within my life beyond words – the inspiration for all of this and my greatest joy in life.

I’ll be working on all of the final touches, along with the listings, between now and 2/14, so hopefully I’ll figure out all the little details easily, as I’ve been away from Etsy for like 5 years. However, the shop update is intended to be scheduled to launch and go live at 11:00 am PST on Valentine’s Day.  

Anyone interested in some of the one-of-a-kind pieces that will be included, along with the original five whimsical rabbit paintings I shared in a previous post, this will assist you in setting clocks if you have felt them call.

I WILL also have prints of the original paintings, along with greeting cards and blank notebook journals that will make them available to more than one person, but there are only one of each five original paintings available.

After the shop launch, I’ll be creating more original pieces to share with you as well.

AND, alongside my paintings and items with my art on them, are the new inspirations I’ve been working away on – magickal mini rabbit faery garden DIY (do-it-yourself) kits.

And this is what I’m sharing a sneak peak of today, as I’ve finally gotten around to photographing everything to prepare the shop listings.

These are enchanted little themed worlds Astrid and I have dreamed up and brought forth into manifestation from our imaginations.

I’ve created 30 so far (which includes the Magick Orb that was part of the Giveaway), but I have another 4 – 6 that might make it into this first shop update, too, depending on timing.

Some are one-of-a-kind and can’t be duplicated, as they include things like unique, vintage planters, but many of the pieces you’ll see I will be able to recreate (either exactly or nearly exact) if you fall in love with something and it gets to someone else’s heart before you have a chance to bring it home yourself.

Everything is part of the collection we call “The Magick Rabbit ~ Storybook Tales of Wonder and Whimsy Come to Life.”

The photographs you see below are peaks at just some of what you can look forward to with these mini themed worlds that offer inspiration and reminders for life, along with providing a magickal little portal of possibility, joy, specific energies, and love to infuse each day with – all through the messages of rabbits as way-showers to hearing your song.

I’ve done all the procuring for you, Astrid and I dreamed up the visions, and the end results – photos – act as way-showers as well. They are of exactly all the pieces you will receive in your DIY kit and demonstrate how you can joyously put together your mini garden with your own hands, once received.

I’ll have several photos on the listings of all the different angles to assist with this, but for today I’m just sharing one sneak peak of some of them, along with their theme title.

We love inspiring creativity and hands-on expression so you can feel like the co-creator of your life and these easy-to-create beauties, while adding your own magick touches or inspirations. There’s something very empowering about moving creative energy through you and this will be a super easy and fun way to do just that.

Everything will take minutes to create, but the reward will be ever-lasting.

You’ll be able to start browsing on February 14th at 11:00 am PST at this link:
