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 !

Those I lift my hat too

It has been a rollercoaster ride for the past 6 months so I have decided that life is too short not to realize and recognize a few people that have touched my life in a positive way. The first is my DH , he is my rock , he is my life , my best friend and the one that drives me crazy a lot of the time ...... If you believe in soul mates then he is mine . I can't imagine life without him . He spoils me rotten ( quit laughing those of you that know me ! LOL ! ) and loves me deeply- and I him - and has for 33 years .....with many a bump along the way . It did not ' break " us , just strengthened the bond.....
MY DD for overcoming so many heartbreaks and picking herself up and moving on with life , for getting her education the hard way by correspondence and again bucking the system to get where she is today in her life ! For being the best Damn Mom and Wife there is to her sweet girls and her husband and riding the rollercoaster ride she is on with this pregnancy ... Hang tight little one it is a rocky ride ! We love you and your family ......
My boys for both doing so well in the jobs and having the abilities that their Dad instilled on them about work ethics . We are proud of you and the lives you are creating .......
My friend Lisa and my friend Patti ... both of you started out as online friends and have become so much more . Patti , it is great that you felt comfortable enough to leave your comfort zone and come visit me ! Lisa , what can I say about you except" you go girl !" I love that you are not afraid to go after your passion and run with it ! Don't forget me when you make your first millions !!! LOL !!!!
To my dear brother , you are an inspiration even though you are riding a rocky ride with your life right now . You have a " rock " to lean on through all of this and I am so thankful ...go forward and be the best you can be and hold your head up high .....remember I love you regardless..... and thankful for " your rock "
My sister In law for having the fortitude to lose close to 65 lbs and have the stamina to keep it off through all you have been through this year ..... I am so proud of you !
My parents for raising us kids with the right values and loving us regardless to the circumstances when most parents may have given up nor ever having to go through . Raising kids in the '50 , '60's and '70 was a challenge ......
My sister , whom will always be my BIG sister . She is the family glue that feeds everybody when we get together and has developed a close relationship with our parents since they moved close . Thank heavens somebody is close to them in their Golden Years and I thank you for that !
So I lift my hat to you all .............
