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 !

Merry Christmas !

It may be not politically correct to say that but it is what I believe in , how I was raised and what the season is about ! The ground is covered with snow , the tree is decorated , the gifts are bought and wrapped and it just feels like Christmas ! Memories of Christmas' past as a child , as an adult and as a parent to three and now a grandparent of 5 bring joy and hope for the future . It brings love and memories and a few tears for those who have touched our lives and passed on . We reflect on what this year has brought us , the friendships we have made and those friends that have stood beside us for moral support to get us through some rough patches with health issues . We thank all of you , family and friends , Know you are loved though it may never be said !

Here are a few Christmas cards I did manage to do pre-injury and a few just this past few weeks .... though they took awhile as I had to keep stopping and resting the thumb ! Each one was made with love and thanks !

 Enjoy the Season , embrace life and make memories !

Merry Christmas everybody !

Not up to Par but crafting .......

And it feels so GOOD !!!! Here is a cute little card I made with Bandage Edwin and Bandage Tilda from Little Stamp Shoppe .

I can't thank the staff at Victoria Sports Physio ( I cut up a business card from there for the sign ! ) for helping get my thumb moving again so I play with my stamps and my Copics ! Still having trouble manuevering a pair of scissors though but it is coming along ! This was a simple card as I have a kazillion things to do between now and next week . Still have a few presents to buy , gifts to wrap and DH is whining because I have done no baking ......... I am ignoring that though as he doesn't need it and I gain weight just thinking about it !!! LOL ! All I really want to do is get in my room and play though !!!!
