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 !

Happy Valentine's Day

and it could be a day of good news too ! Pretty flowers delivered day from my Valentine and i gave him 2 Yorkie pups ! No not real ones but Sandicast figurines :-) .... we do NOT need any more dogs !

Good news has been the gift of the day though . DH saw a specialist out of town today and it was well worth the $500 to fly there and back again as he was told the Crohn's Disease has NOT progressed to the point where he will need surgery any time soon :-) Medication will be changed in the next week or so and the specialist feels this will do the trick and get things back to " normal " . We couldn't be happier ! It was a long day for him though and he was so tired when he got in . 2 days of meetings and late nights earlier this week always take there tole on him .... we always talk about him cutting back and he seems to just get busier !

DS also saw his specialist today and got the results of his throat scope . All is good for now but he will have to go back in a year for another . No cancer cells were detected so she must have done a tissue culture .... though Ds didn't ask how they determined that ! Aggggg ! He does have a spot somewhere ( he didn't ask ! ) but I am assuming it is on his esophogus that has a spot that has grown to 3 cm since the last scope a year ago . It will be a spot to monitor as cancer can form quickly and that is her biggest concern .But for now it is all good news .

BIL is in remission and a walking miracle . In 15 months he has beat two of the most deadly cancers , brain and stomach ! I hope he starts living his life to the fullest while he is able as his specialist told him it could be tomorrow , next week or not for 20 years before any of it surfaces again . They are awaiting the birth of a new granchild as well ( overdo so it it wouldn't be long ) and maybe this time they will get their girl . They have 4 boys of their own and 4 grandsons so maybe this time ..... it took us to #5 to get a boy !!! It is their turn !!!

Our weather has been so February ! Cold , snowy and the thought that Spring will never make an appearence .......... we saw the sun and some warmer temperatures for the first part of the week just to give us a taste of Spring ! Today we got hit with that wet , fast accumulating snow to add to the already huge pile ! It is warming up though and the weatherman is calling for RAIN !!! That aught to make everything a skating rink as the storm drains are plugged or frozen over with ice so the melting snow is creating a few huge puddles which will turn to skating rinks if we get another super cold spell !

Happy Valentine's Day and remember to say I Love You all year long and not just today :-)
