It has been a while since I shared a ‘Spread the love’ post with you guys. Spread the love is about initiatives of people all around the blogosphere that make a positive contribution in any way. Today’s guest is Erica from ‘Caught on a whim’ to share her yarn bomb experience with you guys. Erica, the floor is yours!
Hi guys! My name is Erica, and I blog over at Caught On A Whim. I’m excited to join in on Mariëlle’s Spread the Love feature today! I’m going to share my first yarn bombing experience with you.
Yarn bombing is something I’ve always wanted to do. It is so fun to see bold yarn installations like this clever one at The Dapper Toad, but I was never brave enough to try it on my own. Then, Meredith of One Sheepish Girl decided to organize a group yarn bombing, and I knew it was time for me to spring into action. Knowing that lots of other crafters were taking the plunge and yarn bombing at the same time gave me the courage to take part.
I definitely felt pretty sneaky when I was setting up my yarn bomb. I chose a secluded spot, but my heart was pounding and I was constantly checking over my shoulder. I think I was expecting the yarn bomb police to jump out of the bushes and give me a ticket. ;)
Even though my spot was secluded, it was right in front of a church, so I knew that lots of people would walk by it every week. After all, the whole reason for doing something like this is so that others can see and enjoy it. I really hope that my little yarn bomb made some people do a double take and smile, because, after all, that is what it is all about.
I really enjoyed my yarn bomb experience. It got me out of my comfort zone in a fun way and also connected me with creative gals from around the world. Everyone was sharing their yarn bomb photos and experiences on blogs and social networks like Instagram. It was so fun to see what everyone did.
Thanks for having me Mariëlle! I hope you guys enjoyed learning a little about my first yarn bombing experience.
