The Beaver's Da Bomb

Its a cold and rainy night in the sleepy town of Beaverlodge, Alberta. What a better time for us to give the Beaver a warm scarf. My "Partner in Crime" lets call her Thumper and I made numerous attempts before we were able to get it over the nose of the Beaver as the yarn was so wet and stretching badly. I would have liked to loop it over more than once but unfortunately that was a no go. But here are the pictures from the fruits of our labors. I have been waiting for this moment for soooo long and now its a done deal :)

Beaverlodge & Vine

I know its not Hollywood but its a great place to raise kids. I am on holidays right now in a sleepy little town in Northern Alberta called Beaverlodge. We decided to take the kids to the playground at the Elementary School where I went to school when I was a kid. Well I figured sence I was gonna be out and about I might as well leave them something to remember me by so I left behind a small tolken of appreciation at the Stop Sign right beside the school. My oldest son who we will call Little' J helped me out he was my cover. The photos posted here are just cell phone ones but I will post much better ones when I get home from my regular camera. Enjoy and stay tuned as I am not done with The Beaver Ooops hope I didn't give away to much :)

The time is near

Its a beautiful summer day and I really have this need to go do a bomb today should I or shouldn't I? I know that the "The Big One" is comming up really soon here for me but I just have this itch.
I made some lady bugs the other day and I think they would look wonderful on a nice hedge or tree someplace around the city. Oh well we will just have to wait and see what today brings

Well its done my/ our first yarn bombing. I had been thinking about this all day and really wanted to do this but then I heard we were sapose to get rain tonight so I didn't want my hard work go to waste. But then I came up with a plan why not do it some place where they would be safe from the rain but still outside. My Target was choosen My Local Micheals Craft Store but outside on thier flower arangement bins. The bring them in each night so I know they would be found and would cross my fingers appreciated as well. Plus I had to go there anyhow. So I did my shopping then I laid my little lady bugs just so in the flowers and tooks some pictures of them. Unfortunatly they are not the best as I took them with my cellphone camera but for our first Bombing it will do.
