You never realize how close online friends become to being real life friends until something happens that makes you realize that although you don't know these people on a day to day bases other then through the computer , that they have become friends . When something happens to one of their children it brings our world so much closer and that friendship becomes so important to all of us . A few years ago I met online a lady by the name of Sue and we had some good chats online . Heck , I even bought her Sizzix from her and had it shipped to Canada from California . Through Sue , I met Christina and invited her over to LP to join the ladies there . Last night Christina happened to post her DD had small marks on her body and then they started to turn to bruises . Today she took her DD to the Dr and they have diagnosed her small Dd with ITP

- 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 !
