Sounds like we have lots of THOSE aunts here on Craftster.  That's pretty awesome.  Thank you all for the kudos and the suggestions for my ice fishing shack.  I think I'm just getting a pop-up one and I don't believe those have keys, but I will have to check. 

I'm Canadian too, but we don't that THAT much snow in my area. I'm curious what province you are in. (I'm southern Ontario. More people, less snow.)

I'm over here in NW Ontario.  Yes, the same province but a 22 (or more) hour drive away.  We generally have lots of snow, but this is excessive even for us.  Now if the temperature would just get above -25 C we'd be able to actually use all this snow. 

Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley

My goodness...you are hilarious! My Nana used to do the same yarn ball thing...but she made us wind up the string as we went!

Love the present...snowshoes are so fun & will prevent future boot accidents!
Love the wrapping...so clever!

Ice shack you say? ...I wish you were MY aunt!

LOL - I love it!  I'm "that auntie", too!  And I too disagree with the whole commercialized, plastic, stuffed in commercialized-plastic box junk!!  I'm the one that gets my nieces (1 and 2 years old) construction paper and scissors and glue and glitter, watches their faces light up, gets hugs and kisses for the awesome new liberty-laiden-gifts, and runs for the hills while my SIL has to deal with the mess.   Wink

I live just east of Lake Erie, so I have lots of the renewable resource, too.  I'll have to keep this one in mind for when they get a little older.  I love to snowshoe, and I think it'd be great to get the girls to do it with me.  But I think I'll wait till they've gotten to the "wiping their own butts" stage before we go there.   Cheesy

Three cheers for the auntie with the creative/thrifty/ingenius streak!   Cool

What a cool idea!!  I'll have to remember that for when my boyfriend's niece and nephew get a little older!

i'm totally in agreement with you when it comes to kids. we don't get much snow here in Portland, but if we did, i'd be out burying the gifts in no time, this is freaking great.

just saw a DUI checkpoint outside of a taco bell...i feel like that's cheating...
