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 !

Easter has come and gone.....

After a very busy March things haven't slowed down any but just not as stressful . I spent 8 wondeful days at the coast with my family , leaving DH behind to tend the dogs and the cat ! LOL ! His idea I leave on the plane on Good Friday and then come home on the following Saturday ! Got to love that one hour flight as upposed to a 9 hr drive ! I spent Good Friday with my brother and enjoyed every minute of it . We had a late breakfast being I got in a 8:30 am ( yes , I had to be up at 5:00 am to get to the airport in time ! That isn't fun ! ) , we spent a few hours snooping in a few stores and then I got a tour of a neat area called Queen's park in New Westminister ...many older homes and history on every street corner . Some day I am going to get down when the heritage home tour are on so I can see the inside of those old homes . We had lunch at Judy's a quaint little hideaway that was recommended to him . However the guy that told him about it forgot to mention that it is a Granny teahouse ...or that is what it seemed like as everybody in there but my brother was over 70 ( except me ! ) and female !!! LOL ! Good food though . Then a drive up the valley to my family's residence where I spent the next 7 days shopping , visiting and eating .....and admiring all the Spring flowers and green grass ! Yes , we still were getting winter when I left here . Since getting home last Saturday , I have been on a cleaning frenzy trying to get rid of some winter grime and dust . Mind you what gets cleaned , gets dirty almost as quickly as the pups are bringing everything in on their coats .....nice we can finally let them outside though and they can leave most of their business outside instead of wherever !!! They will turned 6 months old this coming week and weigh about 4lbs each now ( give or take an ounce or two with their hair ! ) . I was glad to be home though from holidays . It is always nice to get back to my routine , boring as it may be to some , it is my routine , my animals , my bed and my PHONE ! Our little guy is smiling now and Grandma is having baby withdrawl and really needs to go see our little munchkin ..he turns 6 weeks on Monday !!! DH is going away again on Monday ( he was away Monday and Tuesday of this week ! ) until Wednesday so I wouldn't get down there this coming week ...well maybe !!! Anything is possible !

Was nice to find out Ashley , Christina's little girl is on the mend much like small children do ! It may take some time for her family to get over the horror of the past few weeks though . Ashley , you have a parcel coming your way ! Enjoy ! Ashley's disease sure brought to light what we went through last year at this time with our Granddaughter #3 and just inforces that when a child says they are felling well , something hurts or bruising and marks that appear that shouldn't be ...... then get that little one to the Dr immediately ! By the grace of God both children pulled out of their nightmares and hopefully neighter will have any future ill effects from them .

So here is a final thought , sit back , enjoy life to the fullest , don't sweat the small stuff and most of all , cuddle with your best buddies or loved ones as you never know what the next moment in time will bring .........
