    Yes, it's supposed to be fun, but isn't it funny how you lose track of time? You say to yourself....ok, one more and that's it. Next thing you know, you've gone thru 10 letters. lol
    TEN! I only looked at 127-133 under S

    What I do after I've gone thru all the letters, I sign into Member Services.
    Then go to SHOPS NOT VISITED and finish off that way.

    Okay - so I have a question - do you have some kind of system ?

    I didn't at first, so at the first shop, I looked thru all the fabrics first - took forever. Then I looked thru EVERYTHING ELSE. Never found the dang bunnie. Pretty sure there isn't one in that shop - - -

    So, at the next shop, I decided to kind of 'survey' the topics on the Home page - not click a 2nd time on ANYTHING. I struck gold - found the bunny without going thru the fabrics. Next SHOP, I surveyed, then I started 2nd clicks (leaving the BIG class of fabrics for last) and found the bunny in New Products.

    By the way, one of the shops gave a clue, said the bunny reads the newsletter. The bunny may read it, but s/he wasn' IN it!

    How does my 'system' compare to what the rest of you are doing?

    How much time do you spend in each shop? It sound to me like I'm spending WAY too much time at this game? Did I mention that I'm Obsessive Compulsive? My own worst enemy - I can get lost for days in some piddling, unimportant stuff - - -

    I go for the bunny. Will spend just a few minutes in the shop. IF I like the shop or am a bit curious, I write down the name of the shop, what I liked in it and go back afterwards. That way, I'm not in the shop for forever.
    Some shops I just don't like, so I just find the bunny and leave. Those are mainly the ones with wool or machines or that sell things other than fabric and notions.

    It is easy, Joanne! Just keep in your mind....I will not look at fabric, I will not look at fabric, I will peek at fabric, I will glance at fabric, I need to find the bunny, there is no fabric. lol

    It's not just you Joanne..I think this is a harder find this time...I'm scrolling thru too much junk to find it too....dh will have a blast cleaning out my cookies later! There are a few that I absol. could not find that dang rabbit....! So, moved on...I favorite mark the ones I want to go back to (and I promise it is not the ones that hide the bunny to where you can't find him!)I have already marked some fat quarters and a couple of kits:)There was one that said 'click me' to go on a tour and find the bunny...well, she wouldn't click!:0)So, I move on to the next...I doubt by a few of them that they will get my registry!:)Keep trying and if you get stumped...just move on to the next. I always try for newsletter, bom and kits...or what is new. In about that order. Not always does it work...but, many want you to sign up for their newsletters...which I do if there is a drawing you don't have to sign up for each month. Hope that helps-Skeat

    While hopping an easy way to keep track of shops you want to visit more thoroughly at a later time is: after you click on the bunny, on the next page scroll down before you click on register for prize. There is a place to check and to leave comments about the shop. To access it later go to the shop hop home page, sign back into Member Area and they will be listed there. :D :wink: :D

    Thanks for the hints, and , Skeat - that you think it's harder this time, too :? Later, I'm gonna have to clean out cookies. This may turn out to be the biggest time-waster yet :twisted:

    For all of you doing the bunny hop, enjoy and don't feel sorry for me! :cry: :cry: :cry: I'm on dial up, and it takes forever to get from one shop to another, last time I got so frustrated, I finally gave up! I found about 30 of them and most were easy, most stores tell you up front where to look. I really enjoy it, just a pain on dial up.

    So I hope that at least someone on this board wins!!! :wink:

    Ninnie

    PS: Joanne, I'm rooting for you1 :wink:

    I am on dial up at home, and it does take time, but I do it while watching the news or something like that and it is not all that bad.

    In the membership page, there is a place to tell you where you have found the bunny and another where you have not found it! :?

    I'm enjoying this hop! I have never done one before but I have found 113 bunnies so far!!!
    I doubt I will win anything but it is fun to see these shops because chances are I would have never found them otherwise!
    Thanks for letting me know about this trlnhi!!!

    Don't you have to register at each shop before you are eligible to win?
    Thats what takes me so long! I tried in April, and did good on the bunnies, but signing up for newsletter slowed me down so much. Maybe i'm wrong, then it is a whole new game and I might try!

    Yes, you do have to register at each shop when you find the bunny, but it doesn't take all that long with my dial up. Much longer than when I am on wireless though! :?

    I don't think so, but I could be wrong. Go back and read the rules.
    That's why I stopped last time, too slow on dial up.

    I've read the rules multiple times and haven't seen anything about signing up for the newsletters at the shops, maybe I'm missing something. I thought you registered when the bunny sent you back and you enter your email address.

    You do not have to sign up for the newsletters, although some of the shops have their own personal contest prizes if you do.

    I haven't signed up for all the newsletters either! I did a couple just because I wanted to. Is that one of the rules?!? I just tried to look at the site but it must be busy it doesn't want to show up!
    Please let me know because I have found around 120 bunnies and only signed up for two or three newsletters!!

    You do NOT have to sign up for any newsletters to be eligible for the shop hops prizes...
    You can sign up for them if you want to or to register for the individual shop's giveaways, but they are not related in any way to the shop hop's prizes :D
