Grow Your Blog


2 Bags Full is hosting a party in the blog land again! And if there is a party I'm in! For the whole weekend I'll be traveling through Blog-land discovering new blogs, making new friends, learning few tips and tricks and I'm so excited!

I have been blogging since February 2008 (wow, it will be six years soon!). I blog about everything, my hobbies, the beautiful cold North, current events if they touch my heart. 

I live in Canada's true north, in the Yukon. I'm not very far away from the Arctic Circle. So many people are telling me that I'm crazy, why in the world I've chosen such a cold place to live. Well, yes, it is cold here but we do not have:
  • freezing rains
  • ice storms
  • earthquakes
  • floods
  • hurricanes
  • tornadoes
  • fleas (poor bastards can't survive in the cold)
  • snakes
  • worms (too bad for fishermen)
I was terrified watching news when practically all the east coast was without power around Christmas time. I had my wood stove going, was sipping wine and enjoying a REAL winter wonderland.

And there is more benefits to living here:
  • less taxes
  • more jobs
  • summers with 24/7 daylight
  • occasional Aurora Borealis (spectacular!) in the winter
  • beautiful winter sky with millions stars that look so close that you can almost reach them
  • wild life (it's heaven if you like it)
About 25 years ago I fell in love with embroidery and still love it. I think that most of this whole blog is about stitching...

I'm also very passionate about mysticism and searching for the unknown and unexplainable... Fifteen years ago I've joined AMORC , a community of Seekers who study and practice the metaphysical laws governing the universe. I've learned a lot and still learning.

There is no party without a give away.  The lucky winner will be announced February 15th and will receive:
  • 5 blank postcards from Yukon
  • tiny address book, and
  • dream catcher
So long my friends,
Evalina

  2. Hi Evalina Maria, It sounds like a lovely place where you live. I know I would be very happy sitting by a fire with some wine and all my crafts! Have a fun weekend blog hopping! I will have to join in the fun next year as I am new to the party.

  7. Good morning Evalina Marie. I'm an avid fan of yours and to know you live in a place where there are no snakes....well, I just want to come live with you now. I love your snowy scene. I just saw on the Weather Channel that we here on the South Carolina coast may possibly get a little snow Wednesday. I'm so excited that I can't sit still. Have a great time at the GYB party this weekend. See you soon!

  8. Great to be a part of the Grow You Blog party. Always enjoy your blog.

  9. You lucky lady!! I would love so much daylight in the summer and I dream of seeing the Aurora Borealis one day. I have been reading you occasionally as I love cross stitch.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I only ever travelled ( with the RAF) to Gander, Calgary and Vancouver but would have loved to go further north in Canada. I could see me living in the extremes like you do but without a bloke, I figured it would have been even harder to get by and having two children would have made it more difficult too !
    I once even considered joining a dating website for 'hunky lonley Alaskan men' - stop laughing! It was after a bottle of wine I should add LOL
    and what a bonus to have cats who wont pick up any fleas!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh that sounds like paradise to me! I hate hot weather and I just LOVE snow. I've never heard of mysticism how interesting. I look forward to getting to know you more.

  12. Hi Evalina Maria, I'm Beth one of Vicki's GYB party volunteers. What an interesting place to call home! I hope you have lots of fun at the blog party and wish you much success at "Growing Your Blog"!

  13. You make a good point about the trade-offs in living in various places! I weigh those factors every time I think about relocating.
    Enjoy the Party!

  14. Hi and what an interesting place you live around. I just missed out to join in on this while I was sick but I plan to visit as many as I can this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  15. It's been awhile since I've visited you. It was interesting to see what great things you have there in the Yukon. What a beautiful photo - I can just picture you sitting by the fire having a glass of wine.

  20. So happy to have found you in this GYB event!
    I have become a new "follower" ....
    I'm fascinated with where you live .... I yearn to look up at the night sky and see a zillion stars flickering .... don't see that often with all the ambient light from nearby cities!
    Have a great time at the party!

  22. I am not a 'cold season' person. I do love the 4-seasons, but could really pass on the snow and cold. Love your stitcheries!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sounds like the perfect place to live. Must be great to have all that light for stitching!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You truly sound as if you live close to Heaven ... awesome for you!! Wonderful party we have here and glad to visit!! Happy hopping :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I should probably start by saying that your stitching assistant seems to be very serious about his work, and I love his name: "ZoomZoom," I just said it aloud. It is lovely to meet you, and it will be even more awesome to read about your adventures... and about ZoomZoom, of course. ;-D

    ReplyDelete
  26. It sounds beautiful where you live. I love reading your blog and hope you get lots of new followers today.

  31. Hello Evalina
    Thanks for visiting my GYB post, and I am enjoying meeting so many lovely women. I'm in southern Ontario where winter is damp and one gets chilled to the bone. Interesting facts about life in the Yukon, this is one thing about blogging I love, all the information and crafts that are shared. Please enter me for your giveaway.

    Greetings from Savannah! xoxo Silke

  33. Hi Evalina, We met at last year's party and I've been following you ever since. I will be visiting the Yukon in the fall and can't wait! Although the winter doesn't sound quite so appealing:-) Have a great day! Hugs, Terri

  36. I have always heard it was beautiful there! We once went (2) wks with no power. But in the country you have things like generators, wood stoves, gas furnaces, and gas stove. The only thing that has never went out is the gas. Would love postcards from the Yukon! I am a new follower by GFC and bloglovin!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I admire your cross stitch,it's lovely. I'm a new follower through GFC/bloglovin'
    Thank you for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hello! Visiting from GYB party. Embroidery? Wow...sure wish I had YOUR talent, patience AND eyesight! My mom is so adept at quilting and embroidery...yet somehow that creative gene bypassed right over me! Yet I am in awe of all those who possess it!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi, Evalina! Love your blog - I also used to be a cross-stitch fanatic, but had to drop it because my eyesight wasn't up to it (old age stinks!) So now I quilt. But I love to see what others are doing in cross-stitch!

    ReplyDelete
  40. The wood stove sounds warm and necessary. I would love to see the Aurora Borealis and imagine it is spectacular.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi there Evalina

    I'm visiting through the GYB party after you so kindly posted on my website.. It's so nice to meet you and read your blog. I live in South Australia, and have just suffered through a heatwave of 45C + for days and days, I can't imagine being so cold - I'd love it truth be told!

    Thanks again for joining the party!

  42. Evalina, I am so very glad you stopped by my blog because I think I just found one of the coolest chics ever, you! Ha! How beautiful where you live! Stunning! I live in Southern California, hot, very dry, fire warnings, brown everywhere. It's quite ugly at times. I dream of living in a winter wonderland! I am so looking forward to following your life.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your description of the Yukon made me laugh!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm so glad you stopped by my blog Evalina - I believe we used to write one another when I first started blogging and somehow we lost touch!

    I hope you are enjoying the party! Don't be a stranger. It is always wonderful to bump into an old friend!

  45. Wow! I love your attitude about where you live... but I will not be showing your blog to my husband, who not so secretly wants to move way up north someday after we retire -- I don't think I could handle the snow and cold for such long periods. Anyway, thanks for the comment and follow on A Rural Journal -- happy to be a new follower here~

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow, what a place to live!!!
    Lovely to connect via the GYB party and thank you for stopping by my blog yesterday and leaving a lovely comment :)
    I'll be back again, but I'm still catching up...
    And yes, I'd love to enter your giveaway - I nearly bought a dream catcher the other week (after a spate of nasty nightmares), but maybe this is a good luck sign...

    ReplyDelete
  47. It sounds like my perfect place to live. Love your cross stitch and you seem to get so much done. I love it but I'm very slow.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Well, that's certainly looking at the positive side of life. My son is currently in Alamosa CO where there's freezing temperatures for a lot of the year and going there from Kuwait is quite an extreme. He's not too sure about the cold. I have a dream catcher brought back from Nova Scotia from my boss. Used to have one from Colorado until Jingles tore it all apart when she was just a young thing -- she liked the feathers of course. :) Thanks for stopping by. It's nice to grow our blogs, but so hard to keep up with everyone. Best wishes, Tammy

  54. Thanks for a peek into life in the Yukon. I don't think I could handle the long, cold winters you have. I can barely handle our Illinois winters.

  55. Such a lovely post,,,,the farthest north I've lived is Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada where we had a little bit of nighttime. I miss see the aurora arborealis. Stay warm and cozy will be visiting often.

  56. Hi Evalina,

    I'm visiting from the Grow Your Blog party. It is so nice to meet you and your assistant ZoomZoom! I have an assistant too who likes to play with ribbon, brads or anything he can find. I plan to look around a bit more and then finish up the last batch of bloggers. I wanted to try and visit everyone. If you haven't already, please do stop by to enter my giveaway. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs – Donna

  57. Thanks for sharing your story. I hope to visit often.

  58. I linked here from the Grow Your Blog party, and now I'm following you through Bloglovin' because I am finding so many wonderful things on your blog! Counted cross-stitch was my first love and I still enjoy it so much. I like learning about the Yukon too, it's very different from where I live in the coastal mountains of Oregon. :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hello Evalina Maria - lovely blog you have here - looking forward to reading more of your posts! The Yukon huh! So vastly different to where I live here in Australia - but you do have wonderful points in favour of living there!! I have become a follower.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Your Yukon sounds just beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  61. What a wonderful place to live! The snowstorms of the east coast did look awful, and we watched on the news from the mild Pacific Northwest. Stitching is a wonderful way to pass the time, but watching wildlife is too. I enjoy keeping my bird feeder and hummingbird feeders full just for the joy of watching the birds. Your stitching is lovely to look at and makes me think when I finish the quilt I'm working on I should pull some of my cross stitch out.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I have always wanted to ask why anyone would want to live that far North. Thank you for giving such good answers.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog...........now I am visiting yours. I love your photos of your Winter snow. I have never seen snow - it is one of the things I must do before I die - see, feel, taste snow. I am about to become a new follower of your blog. Bye for now.

  71. Hi EvalinaMaria. Love your name! I am visiting via GYB party. I want to thank you for visiting, commenting and joining my little blog. I have dabbled in embroidery and I absolutely love it. I just don't have the patience to try it again but a girl can live through others who create using this wonderful technique. I will be following and looking forward to seeing what you create. The dog on your blog looks kind of like mine, only they are mixed with something else. Beautiful! Enjoy the party and i'm off to view more blogs.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Evalina Maria is such a beautiful name, I appreciate all the comments you left on my blog! Look forward to seeing more from you!

  74. oh my - you are the complete opposite of Singapore - we are hot hot hot - but we do celebrate CNY and your horse in your next post is fabulous! Happy B-day year - I just did a post on this and your probably know, but if not....the horse is one of the Chinese people’s favorite animals. According to beliefs - one of the ways the horse serves human beings is to give people a ride to their destination. Therefore, the horse is not only a symbol of travel, but also a sign of speedy success.

    People born in the Year of the Horse are highly animated, active, and energetic. They are typically very elegant, independent, gentle, and hardworking.

    The most striking characteristic is their strong self-confidence. Thus the "Year of the Horse" is a time for all people to go forward confidently in the direction of their goals and dreams, just as the horse gallops at top speed toward its destination. Cheers -

  75. Hello Evelina. You cracked me up saying there were no fleas or snakes! We have both in abundance. In fact there was a snake in our kitchen a few days ago ;-) Nothing to worry about, only about 15" long and I think it was a non-venomous Diamond Python. I used to cross stich years ago, and although I still do embroidery sometimes, my real love is patchwork. Stopping by via the GYB party.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Believe it or not we saw the aurora here on Dogwood Lane once we thought we needed our heads examined we were so amazed at the appearance so far south but it truly happened. it was some atmospheric trick. How I envy you that light show. Visiting from the GYB party.

  77. Hi Evalina,

    I am happy that Vicki came up with the idea of this blog party -- otherwise, I might not have come across your interesting blog. :) Well, I am your newest follower now -- simply because I really liked what you wrote. I certainly want to stay up to date what is going on in your part of the world.

    As a child and teenager I did some cross-stitching at school. Now that you are talking about it, I am seriously thinking of taking up cross-stitching again. :)

    Is that your dog in the background? I guess I really have to visit your blog more often.

    Lots of greetings from Germany,
    Birgit

  78. Hello, thanks for following me Evalina! I stopped by to visit my newest follower. Your blog is beautiful and I'm glad to 'meet' you. Greetings from Michigan, where we are back to the cold, like it was when I was growing up. As a kid, I don't remember lots of ice storms. We did however have snow drifting up to the eaves of our house. My kids just plain don't believe me when I tell them that! Your cross stitch is lovely and I love the idea of working from your stash. I have said that I'm stopping buying beads and fabric until I use some of what I have. We will see if I can stick to this resolution!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Wow - is there room to let a small one in, some many people at your party!
    Yours is a fascinating blog from your cold location and your interest in mysticism, but lucky no fleas on you! I'm delighted to be your latest follower.
    Have a wonderful week, I can see you've been flat out!!

Thanks for visiting me Evelina nice to meet you, I have never met anyone living in the Yukon before it sounds absolutely wonderful if you don't mind the cold, I think I would curl up somewhere and hibernate..!!!

  98. I agree with the others about wanting to move to the Yukon! I did have a team of sled dogs 15 years ago, but sold them (I lived in Northern Ontario and Quebec ...the only way to get there was by plane/train, so know what the north is). I love cross stitch. In fact I learned that and then got turned onto other embroidery stitches. I look forward to coming back and visiting, oh and winning!

    ReplyDelete
  99. It's nice to know about other parts of the world. We can get so insular. Nice to learn about you and your area. Thanks for sharing via GYB.

  100. Just happened upon your blog and enjoyed reading of your love of the cold! I love the winters here where I live and everyone here thinks I'm a bit nutty for it. Glad to hear so many others love it too.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I LOVE your blog! Its filled with exciting things... where you live is so amazingly interesting, nothing like where I live at all!! And gosh your photos are breath taking too. I will be following your blog...Oh did I say I loved it already ! lol

  102. Evalina, Dave and I have been to the Arctic Circle and beyond. We traveled to Point Barrow and then, by bush plane, to Prudhoe Bay and then drove down Dalton Highway...fabulous trip! You also don't have chiggers...nasty little things that burrow and bite, leaving one to scratch until they bleed.
    Finally, visiting via Vicki's GYB party but know you from way back; glad to be here!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Hey Evalina! Just coming over to visit you as I said.. thanks for coming by and visiting with me.. well, you certainly have a list of things I would like to stop experiencing that you do not experience in the Yukon... I cannot imagine no fleas...lol You have an interesting life there.. I am looking forward to visiting with you.. Its is just beautiful and I cannot imagine the calm that you experience there.. Have a great day! Blessings!

  113. Hi Evalina! Thanks so much for visiting me via the GYBP :) You've almost convinced me to move north, though I'm pretty north already (Albany, NY) and I grew up an hour south of Montreal. I'm your newest follower. Blessings, Diana

  114. Hello from New Brunswick! Waiting for another big storm here (leftovers from the U.S.) I've completely given up getting to everyone's blog in a timely manner. I normally do hops from the "bottom up", but I have now become completely confused ;)

    I loved seeing your varied posts, Evalina, especially your outstanding photos... will definitely be back :)
