Tiny Help

While out for a walk, I noticed there were many little things on the street that needed some help. I realized that the only way to fix little problems is to get little people!
Matty and I happen to be very handy, so I printed pictures of us onto sticker paper, cut us out, and stuck us around the neighborhood.
We fixed those little problems like loose nails,
broken electrical covers,
splitting walls,
and giant cracks in steps. 
Thank goodness Matty is there to hold up that step. It would have surely collapsed by now!
Moo just watched us busy at work. 

He would have helped, if only he had thumbs.

What a great idea. Maybe you guys can dive down our drain and figure out why it's so slow. Just be careful of our chickens. They'd be eyeing you.

Simply Mel said...

Are his arms cramping from holding up the step?

My goodness this is beyond adorable!

Ariel said...

Hehehehe, this is so cute! There are so many tiny things that need fixing up that we never get around to it. I wish there were lots of tiny me's to get to it!

Very clever, and ticklish. Because it tickled me.

Hi Katie!
Fabulous post as usual!
I think we need some tiny people here in Newfoundland too. Lots of tiny problems. Being the oldest city in North America, we probably need giants too!

the creative and fun stuff you think up never ever ceases to amaze me. you are for sure one of my very favorites.

Candice Herne said...

could you be anymore brilliant, street art at it's best, you need to document this one, with video etc Candyxx

Moxie said...

You are just too cool. You do too many things that make me happy. If I had you in my neighborhood doing all that stuff, I would never, ever, ever be sad. I may try doing silly, cute things like that. Thanks for the inspiration of spreading the love and happiness around. You truly are a Godsend.

drachen said...

OMG, I was reading all your great old posts ('ve read them all now, but gonna enjoy many of them for many more times for sure :)) so I just now saw this new one, this is so great, like Christmas almost everytime I read another post of yours :D

I love all the little things you spread, it's the little things that change the world one step at a time and can brighten up things so much with so little effort :) :) :) :) :)

I've already found some other great blogs via the respective bloggers having commented here. You are truly a hub of joy in this great Internet :) :) :).

Also very great and handy are the posts where you asked people e.g. how they deal with stress or this or that, just so many useful tips and ideas :).

Ans I looooooved you hiding these small strips of paper with encouraging messages on them in this Airport you were stuck. You are the personification of Inspiration to me right now, I think I spend >50% of my surfing today on your blog :) :).

I already painted wonderful colourful bubbles on some paper like you did stick ones on your wallpaper and I might just buy some coloured paper tomorrow and do the same :D :D :D. Even just having several bubbly colourful sheets of paper lying around is a great reminder of the world's wonders in times of misery :).

And I was disappointed I didn't find any food coloring at the supermarket nearby :D. I will for sure "hunt some down" shortly, I love colors, I love playing with food, I love cooking something new each time I cook and colored food just looks to be so much fun :).

So thank you for being you and sharing you joys with the world, with all of us and changing the world to the better with that :). I'm spreading the word about it as best I can :D

I love your blog :) :) :).

I was also going to recommend you have a look at the little people street art project (http://little-people.blogspot.com)!

You remind me of my friend, the artist Katherine Johnson. You have a beautiful creativity and natural sense for these things.
