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 month of holidays !

Unfortunately they aren't all together so we headed out just south of town for 4 days last week . We had a good break and even managed to get DH to have a couple good naps ... much needed as he hasn't been well again ... or still ! As for the weather .... well it was a real mixed bag but we still managed to visit around the campfire most evenings ! One night the neighbour strung a tarp so we could enjoy the fire even though it was pouring rain . They lived in Prince Rupert on the coast of BC so know how to camp in any type of weather and go prepared ! Seemed funny to camp without our Kandi but the " boys " ended up sleeping with us most nights . Tucker did put himself to bed in his kennel one night and wouldn't come out so it was just Ryder that buried himself in our bed . At 5.5 lbs and 6 lbs they don't take up a whole lot of room ! LOL !
Dh decided he would work for the last 3 days of this week as he has been off sick so much lately and felt he needed to tie up some loose ends . Also the fact that his office is short staffed at the moment with people on holidays and didn't think it was fair to leave when they are so busy !!! That is who he is though and I will never change him ... unfortunately his health comes last with him and he pays for it ! However , on Sunday we will head out to try out a new lake ( no the lake isn't new , just new to us ! LOL ! ) and it is less then 2 hours away from us ! Plus they have cell phone coverage which is a must right now ! No , I am NOT taking my laptop though as this is going to be a holiday for sitting relaxing , napping and some fishing ! We are taking our small 12' aluminium boat and will be giving it a run before we come back for one week so DH can go to a meeting out of town ..... then we will head out again for almost 2 weeks of fishing and meet with friends ! August will be a busy month for sure !
