Yarn Bowls....I want!!!

I was crocheting hats last week and my yarn was going was driving me nuts.  I finally placed the ball of yarn in a plastic bag and tied the handles together so the yarn will stay in place.  Today I was checking Etsy and some blogs and came upon these yarn bowls.  I want!!!!

Aren't they wonderful!

May Long and all I see is RAIN!

The May long weekend is upon us here in British Columbia.  It would usually be the time that I start doing up my flower pots and hanging baskets.  I would also start planting some annuals in the yard but we have RAIN!!!!

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day.
Little Ginnie wants to play;
Rain, rain, go to Spain,
Never show your face again!

Last week we had a few days of sunshine after almost a week of rain.  I know that April showers bring May flowers but it's May already and how are the flowers suppose to come up when I haven't had time to plant them!

I am going in the garden to plant between the raindrops...I guess I should be happy that I don't melt in the rain.

Crafty Affaire-White Rock's Newest Handmade Market

I apologize for being MIA...been busy with Crafty Affaire, the new Handmade Market that I am organizing.  It is taking a lot of my time lately.  I have been trying to source out vendors for the show.  T and I have been attending other craft shows in Metro Vancouver to see if we can find any potential vendors.  We did find some, sent some emails and are waiting to hear back.  I've been working on advertising and trying to get sponsors.  It is very time consuming!

Hopefully everything will fall into place.  Wish us luck.

Go Canucks Go!

I watch hockey now and then but I am not a fanatic.  When your home team is going for the Stanley Cup I guess it becomes a big deal.  I'm getting on the band wagon for the Vancouver Canucks!
