Summer in many small rural areas mean it’s time to Rodeo!

Our little community is no different. Although our local Rodeo is a few weeks away, we have the privilege of having the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth being held, basically in our backyard.

The Calgary Stampede is in it’s final weekend for 2014 and we have be thoroughly enjoying the Rodeo events as well as our favorite – The Rangeland Derby. Nothing like watching those chuckwagon teams barreling around the track. Plus we always love to listen to Les McIntyre call each heat. How he mixes in the canvas sponsor with the race is truly amazing.

To celebrate the time honoured tradition of the Rodeo, I have put to together a printable. There is a mix of 4×6 and 3×4 cards you can print off your home printer or send to your local photo development source.

Rodeo Printable

Rodeo printable zip file

Please note these cards are for your personal use only and are not to be reproduced or shared in part or in whole.

How to download/print

  1. Click on the image or link and download to your computer
  2. Right click on the folder and click “Extract All”
  3. Print the file to your color printer or send to your local photo developer
  4. Trim the 3×4 cards to the faint grey lines you see around the edge. This will give you the measurements you need to slide them easily into your photo pocket pages.

Quilt – Keep the Memories Alive

sweet Miss H

Miss H came to live with my cousin and her young family for this past school year as part of a student exchange program.

She came, not knowing English, our weather nor our Canadian customs.

She touched our lives and we are thrilled we had the opportunity to get to know her.

She left last month to return to her home in Japan where she will finish school.  “See you someday” was her goodbye.

We know she has big dreams and we are excited to stay connected and watch her adventure.

Miss H and her quilt

My mom and I made this Canadiana quilt for her to take home with her so she could get a “Canadian Family Hug” anytime she wanted one.

Mom embroidered part of our national anthem as well as the names of her host family (my cousin’s family) on the quilt.

Canadiana Quilt


Maple Leaf Fleece


Quilt details:

Size = 60″x60″
No batting (it’s warm where she lives in Japan)
Backing = Red Maple Leaf fleece (so snuggly)
