Some of my viewers have sent emails telling me that “Your carvings are so beautiful, it’s kind of intimidating to try them”.
Some of my students told me that they planned to make the honeydew bunny basket for Easter parties.
I heard from one of them, Michelle, the day before Easter. She said, “I just want you to know that I am making the bunny basket and I LOVE IT! It’s INSTANT GRATIFICATION.”
Then the day on Easter, Michelle let me know that she had brought it to her church for an Easter potluck and lots of people complimented her on the bunny. They said things like, “You made that?” “How did you do it”. It’s adorable.” and more. Then when she was picking up her empty bunny to go home, one of Michelle’s friends rushed up to her and asked if she could buy the empty bunny. She told Michelle that she was going to two more Easter parties that day and wanted to refill the bunny with fruit salad and reuse it. Generously, Michelle simply gave her the basket.
Michelle isn’t the only one who’s bunny basket got used more than once. Another viewer told me that she made two honeydew bunnies. One to use the night before Easter and one to use on Easter and refill for a second party that same day. She also got lots of ooooos and aaaaahs and people couldn’t believe that she made it.
Just goes to show you that these simple carvings really are admired and enjoyed by others.
P.S. By the way, if you don’t have honeydew available to you, this bunny can be made with any other type of melon just as easily.
