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 !

Happy Holidays ... summer edition ......

 It feels like forever since I got to play in my room and do anything creative but it actually has only been 2 weeks ! LOL ! I made this card for my friend Lisa that is having a birthday in a couple days and we actually stopped to hand deliver it to her on our holidays ! I just love the look on her face .... guess that says it all about Lisa reaching her ( ah-choo ) birthday ! LOL ! Hope it is a FABTABULOUS birthday Lisa ! I know we celebrated at your house not once but twice ! ( We stopped and had a fab visit with Lisa and her husband ( and Brayden ) on our way home too ! )

  We had great plans when we left home in the RV to tour as much of the Kootenay's as we could but you know what they say about the best laid plans .... Yes , our's got sidetracked ! Not by sickness or vehicle problems ( for a change ! ) but we absolutely fell in love with Nakusp and area and ended up parking for 2 days at Nakusp Hotsprings and then 3 days down in the town at a campground called Murphy's Landing ! What beautiful country and we are planning another trip that way in the next couple of years... this time we will get some fishing in !

Arrow Lake , Nakusp , BC#9 , Murphy's Landing .... guaranteed to be relaxing !

It was an awesome trip but ended far too soon . The weather was perfect with just one day of rain at Nakusp Hotsprings ..... just like a steam bath ! LOL ! All in all , this was one of the best holidays we have EVER been on ! Just what the Dr ordered ! DH came home relaxed ( until he had to start putting out fires at work that is ... dang Blackberry almost ended up in a garbage can ! ) . Fun to stop and see the Grands on the way home and pick up our furbabies that the kids watched for us . Thanks Holly !

Well we have been home a day and tomorrow will be busy as I am getting the RV ready to take back to our " spot " just south of town for a month before we head out on more holidays ! I am going to spend 4 days at the RV while DH works long hours and then he will head to the RV for one night before we head back to town for one week and then take a few days of relaxing time again !

Maybe in September AFTER holidays , I will find time to play ! I can't believe how FAST summer is going this year !

 Have a great summer , find time to create , travel safe and RELAX !
