Kitty's wishing tree



Well... Being a big Keri Smith fan and constantly wanting new exciting and inspirational adventures I bought the book.. The Guerilla Art Kit..




The Guerilla Art Kit shows how small artistic acts can start a revolution. Keri Smith, noted author of the Living Out Loud and the blog Wish Jar Journal, uses her unique drawing and handwriting style to help anyone find and release their inner artist or activist. This visually exciting activity book—full of step-by-step exercises, cut-out projects, sticker ideas, and more—has both fun assignments and handy tips to help you unleash your creative energy into the streets where you can really make an impact. From the quick exercises—leaving books for strangers to find, chalking quotes on the sidewalk—to the more involved—making a "wish tree," guerilla gardening, or making your own stencils—The Guerilla Art Kit contains everything you need to put your message out into on the world......

Awesome Huh!!? Well having already done knit tagging..sweet messages... little notes and chalk messages I decided to try something new.

A wish tree!!

All I needed was:

An envelope
Paper or fabric
Scissors
Pen
Tape
String

Then..

1. Create an envelope or use an existing one.

2. Cut out blank tags and punch a hole near one end of each tag. Tie 5-inch pieces of string to the holes. Place tags in envelope.

3. Affix envelope and pen to a tree or somewhere nearby. Write some of your own wishes on a few tags and hang them there to encourage others. You can do this exercise using a tree you find in public or if you have a tree in your front yardthat passers-by have access to.

Or instead of tags, use coloured ribbons approximately 10 inches long. This makes for a visually beautiful tree when full!

So with all this in mind and being a colourful kind of girl I went for neon card and wool...





I went to the woods and found the most perfect little acorn tree and invited people to put wishes on and wait for them to come true.. Either in person or virtually via the internet!

We started the tree off with a few wishes of our own...



And at first the tree looked like this...




But slowly as the weeks passed.. People actually stopped and started to make wishes..






And not so slowly.. The tree began to fill up!




For more pictures come check out my wish tree set on flickr

And join up to the facebook group Kitty's wishing tree

We now have over 200 wishes! And that makes me very very happy!




Wishes really can come true... I believe it! And if they don't there's no harm in a little hope is there?? Especially if it's neon!!

Make a wish guys... Come and join in the fun!!

If you've ever been in love..... You'll understand!

Hey guys!! Well its been about 10 months since my last blog!
Hey!.... But I have a great excuse! Because about 10 months ago I met a boy!!!
Yes! It's true guys.... After a very long time living the single lady life.. And I mean a looong time, after all check out the kind of literature I had taken to reading..



Hah exactly... I had even made my old lady plan... I was going to grow old in a house surrounded by cats, whilst I knitted tea pot covers and drunk tea from tiny cups whilst sitting under a blanket! Then one day my buddy Jek said that she had once written the list of her ideal guy..And met him! WOAH! I thought that was so crazy and magical that I decided to write a list for myself!

The magic had started...One Knitted Fruits night.. (It's a group that my friend and I ran to meet local knitters and crazy craft kids!)a friend of mine turned up with this lovely guy...who only stayed for about a few minutes. This however was long enough for me to deduce that A. He had fantastic hair B. He looked good in a scarf and C. I really really wanted to know this guy.

Well to make it simple.. I'll let this comic I made explain the story to you!!





























So... After that little fairytale, I hope you can see why I've been AWOL! Hah but it doesn't just stop there guys.. Oh no! Because anyone who knows me, knows I am a crazy mad fan of Nichol Brinkman and her Pillowmonsters! I love them!! I have 8 of the little fellas I absolutely adore them, so much so that I had asked Nichol to make a plushie pinkcheeked version of ME!!



But now with me having a lovely Jacob in MY life.. I felt it was only fitting for Little Kitty to have her very own Little Jacob! So I sent Nichol a picture...



And she sent Little Kitty her very own boyfriend...

A LITTLE JACOB!!!



And she wrote this super lovely tale about the two of them...

Kitty PinkStars was happy as a lark and constantly dancing to the music the birds would chirp. It wasn't until Kitty's waitress at a diner accidentally dropped 2 straws into her strawberry milkshake that Kitty realized that her heart would explode into teeny, tiny bits if she didn't find someone to share it with. Without coincidence, at the exact moment Kitty PinkStars had this realization, a boy named Jacob, who was coloring in the woods discovered that the exact color he needed to fill in the drawing of cotton candy was missing from his crayon box. Being a particularly devoted colorer, Jacob rushed off of his toadstool on the hunt for something pink to use as a coloring medium. He ran through the streets desperately, when out of the corner of his eye, through a diner glass window, he spotted the precise color he needed---it was Kitty PinkStars aura. He was mesmerized by it. His feet moved him into the diner before his heart even knew what was happening, and when their eyes met, they found that their vocal chords didn't work. So, Kitty PinkStars offered Jacob the rest of her milkshake via her spare straw and the rest is history.

They went for a milkshake...



The rest is a love story waiting to be made...

Yep I'm HAPPY! VERY HAPPY!! He's the jelly to my ice cream....



We live in our own little world.. He's my muse! He's inspired me to doodle again!



We're different but the same in so many ways! It's like he was made from my list!!



And yep... I never thought I'd be saying it... But this love thing is totally great! And I'm a smitten kitten!
