Photography: Easter Chicks + Dirt Pie

This year for Easter, I had to pleasure of going to Ian’s Uncle’s farm. They even arranged an egg hunt for the little ones. He has raises horses, and they also have chickens and guinea hens on the farm!

Here are some of my shots for the day!

I made this chocolate cream dirt pie to bring. It’s a pre-made chocolate graham cracker crust filled with two boxes of chocolate pudding, and also some chocolate chip “rocks”. Then we topped it with crushed oreos. There were supposed to be gummy worms inside, but we forgot them! I piped some green grass icing, and some pink and purple flowers, then plopped on an Easter bunny for good measure.

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter!

I have some nature photography shots to share with you next time! This blog is taking a turn down the Photography road. It’s something I’ve always been interested in, and I’m very happy to share these with you.  All photos © Dara Hopkins 2013.  :)

Another New Critter named Moxie

I’ve been having a lot of fun creating these square shaped animals. I like using the patterned fabrics, rather than straight forward, brown, pink, white fleece.. etc. They end up more unique, each with their own personality. I’ve been using bits of new and vintage fabric scraps for their tummies, muzzles and ears. Some I’ve used the last bit of that certain fabric, making them one of a kind now! :)

Introducing SquareAnimal #3:

Moxie the Scrap Fabric Bunny


She’s available for adoption in my etsy Store, if anyone has some room for a punky rebel bunny. :)

She’s got some siblings at home that are in the process of being born, haha. So as they get their ears, and legs together, up here they’ll be posted for their “showings” :)

IF: Reverse. Better Late Than Never I Suppose..

Missed it by THAT much… I didn’t get this in on time for IF: Reverse. Poo!


A sassy little bun with a cute car.

I was working on this illustration on and off all week.. It’s hard to finish with no computer at home. I was going for the abstract, Less-is-more approach.. but it still feels like its missing a LOT. But I figured I’d post it anyway so i can get started on next weeks theme- Sweater.
