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 !

Got to LOVE relatives :-)

Guess it pays to ask whether you should stop blogging as you don't think anybody is reading it ! Well thank you to my dear relatives that have fired me off emails and one dear cousin that took the time to leave a beautiful comment on my blog .... so YES I will keep blogging ! C.P. , it is so nice to see you drop in and now I know that you and your family survived the snow that fell in your area in the past while ! Mind you , you grew up in Alberta so you should be used to the snow ..... and the nice part is , your winter will be over LONG before ours is !

So at noon this strange thing came out in the sky .... it is bright , has some warmth and oh so welcome ! Yes , we have been blessed with some sun .... a bright spot in a very dull , dismal week - both inside and out ! DH has had such a rough week that he was home in bed for 2 days - something so unheard of ! Next week he will have one more test then the Vancouver Dr will decide what the next step is but we know it will be surgery , just not the extent of it .Youngest DS also has 2 Dr appointments in the next month ... one over the head issues and one over the stomach issues - which caused the head issues to begin with ( or at least we found out there was a head issue ........ guess it doesn't really matter just that we did find out before anything really bad happened ! ) . He ( and his 2 cats , Frank and Miss Kitty ) is back living under our roof again and that has been an adjustment but being he is self-contained in the basement , we are coping quite well . It is actually good to know he is there as I feel better knowing at night that we are here if he needs us and he is here if we need him ...... 2009 is the year to just get these health issues under control and get on with life and hopefully by summer !!!!

With DS moving back home and taking over the basement as his living area , that means I have had to do a lot of decluttering and organizing ! Of course my crappy room ( craft room ! ) is going to get a major overhaul of decluttering ! It is just damn scarry as to what I have been stashing in that room since I started scrapping and now more into the stamping !!! I know some kids are going to be excited with all the paper they are going to be handed too :-) .... and then there are all the paperbacks I have as I am an avid reader as well ! Gosh what to do with all those books that I haven't read - just accumulated !!! OOPS ! Another addiction ! LOL !

Well that is my life in a nutshell this week so time to go back to my decluttering ........ or maybe I will just read one of those many books :-) Oh , guess some housework should be done before DH gets home from work too as that has been hit and more miss over the past couple of weeks ! It is too hard to do anything wwhen you have a sick DH at home ................ Welll ..... that is MY story and I am sticking too it ! LOl !

Have a good weekend everybody !

    Yellow blob you say? Up in the sky? It must be above all the dense white fog blanketing my area right now. I'm glad SOMEONE in the family has some sun. As for the snow....it was a flash in the pan, dear. I am looking out the window at green grass as I type. I've decided you can keep the white stuff in your area. My little gift to you. Take care. C.P.
