About Me

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 !

Old friends

When friends meet , hearts warm .

Not old in years but in the number of years we have known one another ! In the past few months a few old friends have reconnected and we have managed to get together twice for dinner . Some of these ladies took me under their wings and kept me sane while my kids were teenagers ! Looking back , we were good friends and reconnecting has just made life come a complete circle . One of our dearest friends , Marlene passed on a number of years ago to cancer and there isn't a week that goes by that I don't think of phoning her then remembering that is impossible . We remember her each time we get together ... and it is like she is there with us . Time passes by but the bond between friends remain , sometimes it is months or years before the connection is made again ...but it is there .
Tonight one friend brought her 93 year old Mother with her as she was up visiting . If I have that stamina that this lady has at 93 I will be out dancing ! This woman is so young for her age and doesn't miss a beat ! What a sweetheart ! Some people get old before their time and then there are those that never grow old .......Positive thinking pays off or the fact that she has been a widow for 26 years maybe kept her young ......just kidding .

Make new friends but keep the old . One is silver , the other is gold .
