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 !

And we have a new year , a new start

Meet Ryder , my Christmas surprise from DH ....and he really was a secret ! I have no idea how my DH and my DD kept this from me for over 8 weeks but they did ! Imagine my surprise when the " forgot " gift was the puppy that DD had been looking after for " some woman " ! He was a whole whopping 1.5 lbs at 8 weeks and as you can see , he cuddled right up to Kandi ! Is Kandi impressed , not at all ! He loves her and thinks nothing of stealing her bed , stealing her food ( though he is supposed to be eating puppy food ! ) and taking up my attention ! LOL !
Ryder is fitting in very well and DH is now contemplating getting another Yorkie in the near future ! Guess there wouldn't be any cockers for us now after Kandi is gone .

Well 2007 rolled in very quietly here ( much like Christmas ) but today was a lazy day . DH took the lights off the outside trees and I had put away the tree and decorations yesterday . The wreath is still on the door though as I am not ready to can the season done ......
DH is back to work tomorrow and that isn't a bad thing as I really need to get busy and do some scrapping and stamping ! Priorities you know !

So the best to everybody in 2007 and may all your dreams come true and may you have good health and only positive thoughts this year .

I can't say I am sad to say good-bye to 2006 as many negative things have happened to our family this past year . It was like waiting for the other shoe to drop ...only ten fold ! This year is one of hope and excitement . DD should deliver that new grandchild in March and so far so good ! Things are looking up in that department and the time is getting closer . DH's brother called the other day and the chemo treatments are going well , the tumor is shrinking and he feels great ! So what more can you ask for ...a better year and good news !
