"You and me goin' fishin' in the dark..."

...Is a song I listened to on my ipod, while we drove to Hope yesterday. We did really fish, just not in the dark, in a lake called "Lake of the Woods". (Near the entrance to the Fraser Canyon)

Now, there's one thing you should know about my Poppa. He loves being near a nice, quiet lake, or somewhere in "the bush", as he calls it. So, naturally, he was the one to tell us about this lake. After stopping at Subway for sandwiches, we piled into our minivan, (I really miss writing "Jeep"), and drove to Lake of the Woods.
A few years ago, Julianna and I were given fishing rods for Christmas, (by Poppa), so we brought them along. We were mostly aiming to practice, but we would of been thrilled to catch one of the five-pound fish the lake bragged.Also, I'm going to bore you with another owl story. Today's owl is one that belongs on my bedroom wall. Now, I love to paint. So When an old cardboard box ended up in the storage room, I got an idea. Here it is: A mural. I decided to paint a mural for my wall.

Happy Birthday Deeda, and Good Luck Mom!

Good evening everybody! I know I posted earlier today, but my mind was on owls, and I forgot about something special. Today is my Great Grandma's (We call her Deeda) 94th birthday! So I would like to say "Happy Birthday Deeda! We love you!" Also, tomorrow my mom is going to Bowen Island (Vancouver) for their summer event. There will be vendors, a parade and a breakfast. She will be away all day tomorrow, but stop by her blog and wish her luck. (Tell her it was my idea) Here is a quick way to get to her blog: mom (it will be faster than typing mybrownbagstudio... you get the picture) Have a good night!

Another Owl Post

Hello again, I hope you aren't getting sick of me talking about owls. (Because I have talked about them in three posts).

My newest Owl item is this:

A "Kute Kleenex Kase". My mom started making these little things a few days ago. (I think they're her most recent post) They hold a travel-sized package of Kleenex. I really like mine :D
Also, I've been into painting rocks lately. I found a few rocks to paint, while I was at the Fraser River with my Nanny and Poppa a week ago. (Waterslide day) One of them was just right to be a paper weight, and the other is a flat one. The empty surfaces were just calling to me, telling me to paint owls, so I did. The flat one says "Owl Lover", and the other one has an owl in a tree.

I hope you have enjoyed the second owl post in a row, because there are more to come.

Hello! How is everyone on this nice warm day? In Abbotsford, it's going to be 31 degrees Celsius today.
If you are wondering what I meant a couple of posts back, about being an "owl nut", today is the day you will find out.
Every year, my auntie Jenny gives Julianna and I some spending money to buy back-to-school clothes, or whatever we need for school. Last year, was my first year at middle school, and I wanted a new bag to hold my binder. One of the reasons why I wanted a new bag was because my old one was ginormous and it didn't fit in my shrimpy locker, and my binder was too big. I also wanted a messenger-bag style. So after searching for a while, we found it!
It is all black, with a rainbow zipper. The design is a etched and multicoloured look, that is covered in owls, flowers and scribbles. It is perfect!
Also, to express my creativeness, I made some pins to match. One is a computer style happy face, another is a random dot pattern, and a third is another dot pattern, covered in gold paint and an owl sticker. Then last, but not least, (my favorite) is a fabric owl.
I hope you have all enjoyed reading what has gotten me hooked on owls. In the near future, I will show you the mural I painted for on my wall. (You guessed it, it's an owl).
Have a "hoot" today,

Good Morning!

Good Morning, everyone! On this beautiful morning I am off to my friend's house. Mom and my sister, Julianna, are going to my Aunt's house. Mom will most likely be sewing her birdy slings, and Julianna will most likely be tearing around the huge house with our cousins, Olivia and Abby. We have a third cousin in that bunch as well, Isaac, but he's only a year. Their black lab just had puppies two weeks ago, so they will also find time to cuddle with them. When I'm at my friend Sarah's, we plan to scrapbook and maybe watch a movie. Well, I have to go now, but I might post later.

Who? Emmy-sue's NEW blog

So, this is my new blog. My mom surprised me this morning with the owls. (As you will soon learn to know, I am an owl nut).
I also like drawing, painting, scrapbooking, and writing. I'm in the middle of writing a story - page 44. My mom, you can meet her if you click here, is also just as crafty as me. (Sorry mom, I know you don't like the word "crafty").
I don't have much else to say, so goodnight, and have a nice rest of the evening.
