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 !

The Maple Leaf forever

Every Canadian should have Maple tree ! Okay , maybe not every one as then they would seed all over but they are so pretty ! This one is in our back yard and some day will shade the back deck and the back of the house . It stands about 5 ft. tall right now . We brought it home from our DD's yard last year and it was a pretty scrawny , leafless twig about 3 ft. high ! it must like where it is planted . I think of my 2 granndaughters D & L when I look at it ! It is growing as fast as they are !


  1. i love all of the flowers. great pics :) and even though i am not canadian i would still love a maple tree LOL

  2. Wait till it gets to be as tall as the one outside our window! Not looking forward to that rake job! LOL......

    Nice to see the tree will be growing up along side your GD...so to speak! :)

  3. Wow, Donna, I can't believe how much the tree has grown and leafed out since I saw it!

    Yes, I had lots of maples in my last yard and let me tell you there will be a nice pile of leaves in the fall every year....just for you!!!
