SLIDER

Hello!

My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.

NEWSLETTER

If you were to be chased by a bear.

I am some sad news. :( I still can't tell you what I am up to, I am waiting for approval.  I know it's almost like I have a really funny joke to tell you but I can't... I can't tell! I am the worst secret keeper!.  Well I am the worst at least at my secrets.  Please forgive me, as soon I as get the green light I will share. 
My husband and I were having a discussion that there has been a couple of bear sightings and I have no idea on how to protect myself.
Do I freeze and stand still? Maybe I should get a tree shirt and try and blend in with the trees?
Maybe I could look more like a bear with this hat.
Should I run? Could I even out run a bear? I would need some Nike vintage shoes- they look like they could go pretty fast.
My husband suggested that we could throw one of dogs at it, if necessary.  :( I was not happy with that one.  How about keeping a stash of honey? Do bears even like honey? or is that just Winnie the Pooh.  
Do I make a loud noise? They did have fog horns at the dollar store or I could get a fancy one on amazon. :)  

Ok so I looked it up if I were to be attacked by a bear- it said play dead.  Is that horrible or what? I am a goner if I run into a bear.   Check out this cute wall decal of playing dead. :)

Well I feel a little bit better now that I know how to deal with a run in with a bear.

ha! well if the bear is wearing a sweater like the one in the first photo, you could just chat about cozy fashion and hopefully the whole encounter would end in a nice cup of tea (with honey!)

I always wanted to be friends with a bear, because of a movie i saw when I was a child. Said this I think you should run as fast as you can throwing food behind you while you run. I was told bears love junk food: m&m's maybe could work?

Don't play dead. Don't run. Act as big as you can. The hat might help.

hilarious post!! i love it!
and i am TERRIFIED of bears. i read a terrible story about a guy and a bear...we used to camp up north in michigan and i was always nervous of running into bears. of course, i also saw a snack in the outhouse one year and now i'm terrified of outhouses, too...

That is actually the best hat I've seen in a while. And I've seen some good hats! I don't suggest wearing it though, (s)he might get jealous and try to steal it! Disaster

Wow - if I saw a bear there is no way I would play dead. I may just freeze on the spot and have a heart attack, but there's no way I could do that!

That bear hat is so cute! :)
