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 !

A few new cards

I love making cards and I love stamping ! The two just seem to go hand in hand ......

November is moving to darned fast !

The First Snowfall of 2007 .... November 1, 2 & 3rd

Where is the month going ? It seems like we just got through Halloween and now November is hurling ahead at a breathtaking speed . Christmas shopping is slowly getting done but with 4 birthdays between now and the middle of December some of that shopping will become birthday presents ! LOL !

I spent Halloween and a couple days with DD's family . Was so fun to see the kids all dressed up in their costumes ...even little Aiden was dressed up like Tigger ! The little grump ( he should have been Oscar the Grouch ) wasn't happy though and so out of character for him .... and popped his first tooth will I was there ! He has now popped his second !!! We had a good taste of winter November 1st and DH had to come get me on horrific roads and we pretty well hopped right in the truck and went home immediately before they got worse . We ended up with almost a foot of snow by the time it had stopped falling . It did actually melt before the next snowfall ....fortunately !
Well our house is undergoing some changes as of late . We had the sliding doors replaced in the dining area with Garden ( French ) doors so hopefully that will help warm that area up this winter . After much diliberation DH and I finally decided what to do about the flooring in this house as the carpets are shot . We have decided on laminate flooring in the living room ( after he has said no way for so long as he isn't a laminate fan ) but after pricing hardwood ...laminate was the way to go . We are replacing our lino in the kitchen and front entranceway with lino as well ....just easy maintainence and with those PEEPEE Puppies it is probably the smartest move ! I can hardly wait for it to all be done so I can at least start re-organising this house from the shambles it is in right now ! Not sure how much I can do myself though as the shoulder is still acting up ( physio helps but not at the progress I would like ! ) and now I have developed carpal tunnel syndrom in my wrists ....... just what I don't need nor want !
So with the shoulder and the wrist , I am sad to say , I have been limiting what I have been doing in my craft room . Many projects I wanted to have done for Christmas wouldn't get done and I will be lucky to get them done for next year at this rate ! It doesn't make me a happy camper being I have have bought and planned some of these projects for a long time !!! Dh & the boys were just away on their week hunt ( they were very successful ) and my week of scrapping and playing turned into a week of sitting and reading !!! At least I put a dent in my stack of pocketbooks !
