A gift for Yarning!

I'm still not able to catch up to myself around here as I'm on the tail end of my swaps for the Paper Cowgirl Art Retreat and it's this Thursday! So please excuse me again for skipping Tool Tuesday, no time to organize taking pictures, etc...
I do have a quick replacement quirky post though instead! I captioned a story a few weeks ago out of Canada on what are called "Yarnbombers" Well I had never heard of this, so it caught my eye!
I mean, how could it not when there was this KNITTED BUS!
Now this is the epitome of turning UGLY into BEAUTIFUL!
I love the term "yarnbomber" too!
I am not sure if this phenomonen is just in Canada?

What a wonderful concept though to turn the ugly in our everyday lives into pretty!
Hey, we could all maybe use a little of this on the INSIDE of ourselves too, don't you agree?
A tree is just a tree until..

Ok, so there are books on this too!
I now want to become a knitter!

One day soon here I will catch up and be back on track
but in the meantime, enjoy the beauty of creativity!
