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 !

Take a deep breath ......

now exhale ! LOL ! I can't believe how time is moving so quickly ! Hard to believe we are already into the second half of the first month of a New Year ! Where did it go ? Life has been busy here with a few things happening and so far only good news :-) Makes you wonder when the second shoe will drop but I am hoping it stays on that foot for a LONG time !

The biggest and most fun thing happened last week when DH & I went to see BIG & RICH with some good Canadian talent , Emerson Drive and Terri Clark as they came to our town :-) It was a totally amazing concert ( though the accoustics could have been better but we were in an arena and I guess that has to do with the crappy sound ! ) , the talent was second to none and the light show was something that this town will probably never see again ! Our Canadian talent was worth seeing just by themselves and we would have gone to see them ! Terri Clark is an amazing performer and she well deserves all the awards she has won . Emerson Drive is just starting to be recognised for the group they are .... simple wonderful ! They have been nominated for a grammy this year . We are proud to clain these guys and Terri as Canadian born and raised and they make no bones about it ! BIG & RICH were something to see as they really are spectacular . They had 2 surprize guests with them , Cowboy Troy and his hic-hop kind of country music ( rap with a country flair ! ) and 2 Ft .......... Totally a fun packed concert that went on for over 3 hrs ! No photos though as the ticket said no cameras or video equipment ...only to get there and they announce cameras are okay just not audio ..... and I had left my phone at home too so I couldn't get any pictures with it ( though they would have been 1" square regardless ! ) .

Other then the excitement of the concert , there isn't much to report . I have managed to do a bit of scrapping which is great as I miss not creating . The Cricut that DH bought me is getting a workout and I am still waiting for the company to get back to me and help solve a problem with the Design Studio so I can get to play with that too ! You have to lovew these companies that don't respond to their EMs ....maybe I will try phoning there and finding out if they even answer their phones !

Winter is still making it's regular appearence here and the snow just gets deeper and deeper . Today we hit 7 C though so that was fantastic as the sun shone ! Ice jams on our rivers are creating a lot of problems for some of businesses along the river and a fire at one of our mills a couple nights ago .... We are safe though as we live up " the mountain " and not down in the bowl area . If we flood then there are a lot of people in serious trouble ! DH & I drove down the River road to see the ice jams last Sunday and they really were something to see . I had my camera and took mega photos only to find out after I had it set wrong and every photo was super blurry ! Think I have learned my lesson on that one ! LOL !

Until the next time " Don't forget to inhale , exhale and enjoy the beauty around you as life is too short to sit in the dark "
