Yarn Bombing or Yarn Storming: a form of graffiti or street art where the bark of public trees are adorned with colorful crocheted or knitted pieces. The artist is typically anonymous.
While considered a city phenomena, I saw my first live yarn bombing of a tree right in my suburban region on Long Island. I was driving down a street in the quaint lil town of Baldwin on Grand Avenue when I spotted it. I practically did a dead stop in the middle of the street. I could not believe it! Anything crochet makes me stop but these two trees; on a main street in front of a popular strip mall was a sight to see on Long Island.
Too, I giggled, with all of the laws we have, I KNEW this was probably illegal so I had to find a park, find it real fast, whip out my camera to capture this grand moment. Yes, I finally got a chance to see my first tree yarn bomb. It so fit in with my love of trees, crochet and crocheting tree images.
Ahh, a great day; all hail to tree trunks dressed in yarn.
Have you spotted any? Take a picture and please share with me here or send it to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

“Let the yarn speak(c)”
As I gathered around my family of yarn to craft out my next conversation, my next topic for community reflection, I seemed to be drawn to explore the nature of frequency and vibration. As I weaved and manipulated my needle this way and that, I queried the meaning of successfully riding the wave of the law of attraction.
While not a master of quantum physics, I have a surface understanding of how like attracts like or that adage, birds of a feather flock together. Over the past days I have mindfully witnessed how such is certainly true and do invite you to observe the nature of such. Tis quite amazing especially when you observe years of patterns.
I think the key to understanding the Law is to be aware of the power of intention and vibration. At the core of everything, like the theory of everything we are all energy…vibrating energy. Everything in this existence has a vibrationally frequency and it is so good to see the enhanced studies on vibrational medicine, using sound, for physical healing.
When we set forth our intention to be mindful of our thoughts, keeping them in a positive realm, we impact the core of our vibrational tone. It is always a work in progress but once we begin to actively shift our behavior and then actively observe what shows up in our life…ahh, therein lies the magic and power of the law of attraction.
As I delved into this pattern of thinking this week, I found myself more relaxed, at ease. I inventoried my circle of social and business associates. Determined to clean house. Such prompted my vibrations to calmness…and then a burst of creativity to complete development of my FIBER ARTS TREE GALLERY. This is a travelling gallery paying tribute to trees via my yarn version of trees. Too, I also developed a complimentary workshop focused on using the artwork to enhance one’s mindfulness. I am feeing on a roll; inspired to get this project launched.
It’s all about your vibrations
So…what have you attracted into your life this week?
There are just some days when you simply cannot get out of bed. And, oh, if the sun’s on vacation and the rain and clouds reign high, you just want to turn over and pull the covers over your head.
There are some people who seem to have the covers over their heads every day. They seem to have little to look forward to.
I look forward to many things in my life. And yarn, especially on sale, gets me excited. Or, having a great meaningful discussion, ahh, it just
tickles my toes. Or the thought of a topic for my next conversation sets me on fire. I become so passionate, so thrilled. To be inspired daily and to inspire others…yes, it makes me throw off the covers and do a happy dance.
Here’s to my latest happy dance thrill I simply call: Red Tree
It’s filled with passion and rhythm and swirls with delight.
