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 !

Leaving on a WestJet plane .....

Mom's card is done and the suitcase is more or less packed as I am leaving in the morning for a week away without DH !!! LOL ! Brother is picking me up at the airport when I get in and we will be doing Granville Island ( hope the rain holds off ! ) tomorrow . How wonderful it will be to spend 1 on 1 time with him . It has been YEARS since we did that - if ever !!! Tomorrow night I will stay with SIL and their boys and then up the valley on Sunday to see the rest of the family . Sister will be cooking dinner ( not that is any surprise as she cooks for all her family and Mom & Dad every Sunday )

Dh just phoned and he has to be away on business Monday and Tuesday so the neighbour will come in to dog sit ..... Wonder what kind of trouble Kandi can get into this time !!! Oh well they ALL will survive ( and I do mean DH too ! ) and have to learn to fend for themselves ! LOL !

So I am leaving on a WESTJET plane in the morning .......... if it isn't fogged in here - again !!!
