Jacque's Joie de Vivre has some beautiful Valentine blog candy to give away here.( click on Jacque's name and scroll down to find the post ! LOL ) ..... Sadly this woman with so much talent has also been diagnosed with breast cancer and is now going to be undergoing treatment starting next week ! Seems more and more women are being diagnosed and whether it is to the mammograms they are having , the self awareness or the education that is being put out there ... it is all good as this disease can be treated and hopefully cured 100% before long . So to my online and " real " friends , make sure you are self aware of your body and the changes , get a mammogram and mostly don't be " afraid " to visit your Dr and demand an exam ! Mammograms in BC are paid for through your health insurance and you do not need a Dr's referral so please make that appointment ! October may be Breast Cancer awareness month but we should be aware ever day and every month !
So for Jacque , Peggy and Roberta ...... Thank all of you for bring this awareness to my house through your own findings !
Happy creating ladies and hope you all live long , happy and healthy lives !

- 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 !
