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 !

Well you could have knocked me over

Our wonderful Dd gave birth on Monday , March 12 , 2007 at 8:24 am to a beautiful , healthy BABY BOY ! Aiden Richard is our first grandson after 4 beautiful granddaughters . He weighed in at 8 lbs , 21 " long and such a cutie with his full head of black hair ! So far he is a very good baby and loves to sleep ! His sisters adore him and love to help and hold him . They don't even mind the smelly diapers ! Grandpa & i had a busy week as I stayed down to help the family while Grandpa came home to work so Grandma could spend more $s on baby !! A boy is a novelty for sure to shop for - and a bit of a challenge !! grandpa came down to visit and grandma ended up coming home with him as it seems all is going well there without grandma's help ! Not a bad thing though as i wouldn't want to wear out my welcome as I have a baby Boy to go spoil !!

Welcome baby Aiden and know your birth was anticipated for so long and you had so many people pulling for you for months . You hung in there when we thought you wouldn't and I think you have shown us all that you are boy to be reconned with . You are so loved and adored ! Hugs and kisses !!

A few creations

just a few of my stamped creations . I have used stamps from Pink Cat Studios and from Stampin'Up .... I love to play ! It definately does take up some time when DH is watching sports !

Bring on Spring

Guesss these photos say it all ! By the way , the pup is sleeping ! LOL ! He has his butt in the kennel and his head on the carpet .......It's a dog's life !!!

life goes on and on and on....

Just like the energizer bunny ! Time stops for nothing and I can't believe it is already March ! It seems like just yesterday it was Christmas '06 and here it is almost Spring ...well if we could get rid of all the dirty snowbanks outside ! Everything is so dirty and once it starts to dry out then I will be fighting sinuitis and infection ......oh the joys of the Dirty Season !!!

Dh has been really busy at work and is going nuts with all that is going on . His new territory is spread from one end of BC to Alaska and the NWT and I would love to take that road trip with him some day . Needless to say with all that is happening in the North ( right now the Canada Winter Games in Yellowknife , NWT which he supplied units to house all the athletes ) and lots of new " things " happening soon , it will just get busier .

Our newest grandchild will be born within a week and how exciting is that ! It has been such a LONG pregnancy and a rough one for DD that at this point a healthy baby is all we ask for . Regardless to what the sex is , he/she is going to be terribly spoiled ! LOL ! I have already warned Dd as Grandma has a large tote of clothes and other goodies for Baby Bump ! plus all the crocheting I have done for this baby .......including this cute little bunny I made ! LOL ! hey Grandpa has had a good time shopping too !!!
Puppies are growing and are a big whopping 3 lbs at last vet check ! They are 4.5 months old now and are just bundles of energy ! They still torment the hell out of Kandi and Tigger ....Tig just dishes it right back at them though ! Amazing how much he has calmed down since the pups came to live here ...who would have thought that Spaz Cat would accept pups that are so much smaller then he is ...he is a whopping 22 lbs ! Life is never dull nor quiet around here ....and I don't expect it to for some time .....gosh is it time to camping yet and leave the rat race behind ?
Our first camping trip is suppost to take place in the middle of May where we will meet with friends in Jasper , Alberta...pray for a WARM SPRING as it can getting mighty cold and snowy in those mountains ! Should be an experience as we will have 3 dogs with us !
Bring on Spring and sun and green grass !!!
