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 !

Spring is in the air ......... Somewhere !

Mandy doesn't care what the weather is like ! LOL ! I was talking to my Mother at the coast today and she told me they have a pansy out in their garden and that the dafs and tulips are peaking their heads out of the ground ! Like I want to hear that as we got another 4 or 5" of snow on the weekend ! oh well , we are on the downside of winter now so hopefully in a couple more months it will be done and not in another 3 or 4 !

Crazy week just past us . DH went to the specialist and we got very good news regarding his CT scan ..... no surgery needed and no Chrone's so the surgery he had in June was a success ! The Dr is a bit stumped as to why DH is having so many problems ( and if you know my DH , you know he would crawl to work on his death bed before giving in to any sickness ! To have him home one day never minds days on end just shows how lousy he has been feeling ! ) Anyways , the Dr has pulled DH off all his medications and wants him " dry " for a month to see if one of those pills could be the culprit ! Crazy when they are supposed to be a preventative for reoccurance ! Almost a week has passed and we are waiting for him to feel better ........ and then we both came down with a vicious head cold on the same day !!!!!!!!!!!!  Keep your fingers crossed that it is an easy fix and that by summer he is at 100% ! He was on the same meds prior to his surgery and having major issues so wjho knows maybe they were the cause !

 Some major purging and cleaning happening here . We have a tiny area we live in and the clutter is getting to me .... as are the dust bunnies !!!! Yes , Spring must be just around the corner for the urge to purge to have hit !

Have a great week everybody ! Stay healthy and enjoy life !
