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 !

A lazy , wet week

 No creating in my room this week as DH & I were relaxing in the RV at our " spot " just down the road . DH had another week of holidays to take and as he had 2 meetings he had to attend , we just simply stayed put . Worked well for us as I ended up with the stomach flu for two days ...... felt too lousy to do anything but not lousy enough to just go to bed and stay there ! Unfortunately the weather was rainy and cool for most of the week but the best part of that was our campfire ban got lifted ( and we never did end up having one ! LOL ) . We did go visit DD and her family one day and then again one evening ! Nice that it is only 35 minutes from the campground !

 The rain has helped the forest fires in the region and we are fortunate that the smoke has dissipated . I can't imagine the distruction the fires have caused and it is said that some of those fires will not be out until the snow falls . The fury of nature and fire !

 We are leaving again on the weekend for another 2 weeks of holidays and this will be a family visiting holiday .  This week as I have birthdays and an anniversary cards to finish that I will hand delivery to family members .

 Have a great week and I hope you all find some sun and time to relax before summer is over ! Happy creating !


  1. WOW! Your camping trip sounds really unpleasant! Really! :)

    Except for the rain ... honestly after dozens of 100-plus days here in Reno ... anything is better than sun. :)

  2. Sorry you were feeling under the weather D!! When are you going to be in K-town? We'll probably still be there!! :)
