About Me

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 !

What a bumpy week ....

Thank heaven this week is slowly coming to a close ! First DH ends up home from work for 4 days following a 10 day holiday ! 2 trips to the ER and not one answer ! He still isn't feeling well so I am going to book him in to our Dr ( if he is back from his holiday ! Grrr ) . Then we got word that BrIL has lymphoma cancer .... 95% treatable but still the C word ! DH is so upset .... doesn't help that BrIL lives 2 provinces away ! And he will have to wait to find out when his chemo starts as he has to have one more bone biopsy and possible surgury to remove the hip anurism that started all this ! Amazing that a hit from a baseball and then a small car accident can be the cause and the result of all this ! To clarify that , BrIL was hit by a baseball a few years ago and then was in a small fender bender not long ago . When his hip didn't get better from the accident , then his Dr detected the anurism .... which was caused by the baseball !!! STRANGE !
Then I had a fight with a door knob ....... you should see the bruise - on the boob no less !!! Moral of this story , don't come up the stairs from the basement carrying a container of cat poop for the garbage and try open the basement door ! The container caught the door and being the door is on a self-closing spring , smacked the door back HARD ... and I wasn't fully up the stairs ! Such a nice color of black , blue and yellow ! LOL ! NOT !
To top the week off one of my favorite places to visit is not playing nice ! Those of you that visit MBs know that some people take things a little too seriously .... guess I will live without that board and probably end up pulling my layouts off there . So sad as I met some of the nicest ladies on there ......


  1. OUCH OUCH OUCH!!!!!!!!! THAT MUSTA HURT BIG TIME. too bad that mb is getting petty. i have loved it there until recently. the stress that i have been under and the fact that things on that mb seem to be getting so petty has made it really easy to back off. if things continue i won't be going there anymore either. not that i will be missed by certain ppl since i didn't buy things from that store LOL. it just seems so rediculous the crap that is going on there. ohh well!!!!!!!!!!! A BIG CONGRATS TO YA ON THE NEW GRANDBABY THAT IS EXPECTING. HOW EXCITING. i always fantasize about being a grandma LOL even though i know that is a long way off.

  2. ohh i am so sorry that your bil has this stupid c word. i hope that he comes out of it with flying colors.

  3. Ouch Donna - You never told me about the boob!!!! You should be a sight with you bruised boob and filing cabinet injury!!! LOL!!! Sorry - it's not really funny - but it paints a good picture!!

    Hope they both heal up for you soon!!!
