About Me

My photo
BC, Canada
I have been married to the same guy for a LONG time ! We have 3 grown children and the 5 loves of our lives that they have given us ... 4 girls and one boy ! I have been crafting all my life and found my true addiction when I taught myself to use Copic Markers and introduced them into my card making ! I am NOT certified in the use of Copics but that doesn't stop me from creating with them ! I always been a bit of a crafting rebel and don't follow directions well !I love crafting with my hands and seldom will you find them idle as they usually have a crochet hook , knitting needles or a book in them . Exercise is not my strong suit ! LOL ! My husband and I also love camping in our RV ( weather permitting ... as in NO snow !) so most weekends from Spring to Fall you find us camped somewhere with our 3 Yorkies .... though don't tell them they aren't BIG dogs ! Hope you enjoy my little touch of my life .... the creative and the real life !

I need sanity , therefore I scrapbook

A number of years ago my DD introduced me to scrapbboking . Well a few albums later and a few dollars less in the bank ( thanks to DH for kindly giving me access to it - only he doesn't know how much !!!!! ) I now have a Crap Room ( as DH likes to refer to it as ! ) . What used to be a spare bedroom has been taken over over by my stash of goodies , paper , patterned paper , ribbon , embellishments , containers , racks , two dog kennels , my computer and all my magazines and novels that I read when I need a break ! So what to I do will all this stuff besides add to my containers you may ask ? Well this is my sanity ! I create layouts to put in albums that someday my kids can all fight over when I am gone ! I am sure each one of them will want them ! LOL ! And I will just watch over them smiling , thinking life is good if they are still fighting over something ! Hey at least that means they are still communicating ! LOL ! And if I am not creating a layout ( I will never be famous for doing this nor do I want to be ! LOL ) , I am creating my personal greeting cards ! I would love to be famous for them but that means I would actually have to try submitting something somewhere ! Only in my dreams I guess !

This is our Buddy . He is my DHs pet though he was actually a gift to me from Dh & J . Two days later we went and got Kandi , his sister . I haven't scrapped her page yet but I felt that Buddy needed to be done for I don't think he is going to be with us much longer . This morning he couldn't even get mobile until he was lifted onto his feet ......... and this is why I scrapbook , memories , tears and sanity.............................................
