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 !

Winter Wonderland

Winter has added more white stuff over the weekend ! A good foot fell and then today we got another 6 " ! I can't believe it is only the beginning of December . We may be in for a very white winter , which means we wouldn't be rid of the snow until at least April or May ! It has been years since we have had such an early winter and for the snow to stay . Usually it melts and it is January or February before it starts accumulating . For the first time in 23 yrs . DH got stuck on the big hill coming home as 4 chip trucks hadn't chained up before attempting to come up it . He waited over an hour and a half in a lineup before the vehicles behind him cleared so he could work his way back down the hill and come up a different route home ! Oh the winter joys ! This photo is of our front at 3 pm today ! I think tomorrow DH will be going to buy a snowblower - something he always swore he would never own !

At 4 pm I was in the back of the house which is facing south and this is the sunset I saw ! Isn't it amazing ! The light pink is east and the west has a fire in the sky !
