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 !

Rattle , rattle , rattle ........

That was the sound of the motorhome coming back from Finger Lake on the gravel road ...for miles ! LOL ! We had 2 warm days and 2 rainy days at the lake and the fishing wasn't the greatest ...very small rainbow trout was what we did catch . Dh & I got caught out on the lake the second night in a rainstorm and got just soaked to the skin ...took days to dry everything out we were wearing . I had on my floater jacket so at least part of me stayed dry ! The one thing we did leave behind was a gallon of blood each and fattened up the mosquitoes and the black flies ! They were horrible !!! Grd #1 hates bugs of any kind so it was not fun for her at all ...... but she will handle fish ! Go figure ! Was nice to spend time with DS and GrD#1 though .....

Going fishing at Finger Lake on Day 1. Grd #1 was a little tenative of the boat and ended up coming back to shore . Took until Day 3 to get her comfortable enough in it to actually go fishing ...then she didn't want to stop !
This is the cabin DS and Grd #1 stayed in called the Grizzly Den ...very rustic , no running water , only outhouses and limited powers supply
This is my favorite photo of DS & Grd#1 walking into a lake that we stopped to look at called Tatuk Lake . This is also a forestry campsite which means what you bring into it you have to bring out ( as in all garbage ) . The spots aren't big enough for the MH even though it is only 27' ...great for a camper or tent though . Pretty lake but we found out it is a big lake and it does have a very nice resort on it . One afternoon we went for a drive and visited a few of the area lakes .
