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 !

Tis a month before christmas

Tis the Month Before Christmas
Tis the month before Christmas, we're all going nuts;With so much to do, there's no ifs, ands or buts.Buy presents, hang tree lights, pop cards in the mail,Send gift packs, thread popcorn, find turkeys on sale.
Decorations need stringing up all through the house.And you haven't a clue what to buy for your spouse.School concerts, receptions, open houses with friends,Long lineups, short tempers, tying up the loose ends.
With all our mad dashing, we're reeling from shock;Let's stop for a minute and really take stock.It's crassly commercial, the cynical say;If that's true, that our fault-it's us and not they.
Take time for yourself-though hard as that seems—Enjoy your kids' laughter, excitement and dreams.Take a moment out now, don't get overly riled,Instead make an angel in snow with your child.
The shortbread can wait, and so can the tree;What's important to feel is a child's sense of glee.The holidays aren't about push, rush and shove;They're for friendship and sharing and family love.
Hear the bells, feel the warmth, light up with the glowOf a message first sent to us so long ago:Peace, love and goodwill, and hope burning bright.Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
Thanks Louise for sending me this !
