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 Birthday to my OLD MAN !!!

 LOL ! Seriously, I can call him that now because he just celebrated his 60th birthday this past Friday ! I remember the days when we thought 40 was old , then we hit that age , then 50 and now he is 60 .......... and I have more then a few years before I am that age ! LOL ! The joys of getting married before being considered an adult ... or legal drinking age in BC ( well he was long past that age ! LOL  ! )

 I surprised him by having all our kids , their spouses and kids ( all except for our oldest granddaughter that was in the Provincial Volleyball tournament in Vancouver and our 4th Granddaughter whom we haven't seen since she was 6 months old )  in for supper . Quite a feat when though we don't all live all over the place but wihin a 2 hr drive it is still a feat with shift work , working weekends and any excuse they can come up with ! Seriously , we figure it has been over 5 years since we were all in the same room ! How sad is that ! LOL ! Was a nice evening and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves . Our 3 year old Grandson was so funny as there were parcels sitting in the bedroom and he was pointing them out to his Mom ( or daughter ) . She told them that they were her birthday presents ( as her oldest daughter , her husband and her birthdays within the next 2 weeks ! ) .... the little Man looked at her and said " Those are YOUR Dad's gifts  , not YOUR'S and you aren't allowed to peak ! " ....... and then he told his dad later that he wanted THAT GUY to play cars with him but he wouldn't ask THAT GUY ( who is our oldest ) to play cars ! Such a fun age ! I can imagine what Christmas is going to be like ! he was more then happy to help Grandpa unwrap gifts too !

 Grandma made Grandpa a very special birthday card using this great digi image from Kenny K .... have to keep the Old Man's heart going !!!

My daughter told me she was X-rated !!! I told her that she was BODACIOUS :-)    I told DH , I posed for the image !!!!!!!!!!!!! Bawhaaaaa !!!!!

 Happy 60th Birthday Old Man ! Love you !
