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 !

And the countdown begins .................

 It is hard to believe that the jolly man in the red suit comes in so few sleeps  ! I think I can say I am ready craft wise , the gifts are wrapped and the tree is up ! I have to get out and buy some groceries yet but it is still too soon for the fresh stuff so I will postpone that for a few more days . Unfortunately this Christmas may be a little stressful as well as a lot of fun . DH is not well again and has spent more time at home in bed then at work . He is frustrated as am I but we just take it one day at a time . Chrones and Colitis are not a fun disease at any time but when you are stressed it is even worse . We have a few things happening that are causing the stress right now ...... and none are in our control .

 So while DH sleeps and watches his TV while he is awake , I have managed to make a few more cards .... and do some baking ( something I seem to only do at Christmas now ! ) . I had a project I had hoped to get done for DH for Christmas but with him home , it isn't going to get done as he has a habit of walking in my room and piering over my shoulder to see what I am doing !!!!  Maybe I will make it a New Year's gift for him as he HAS to fly down and see his Mother as she isn't well and it is something he HAS to do . we will not be spending New Year's together but it is important that he goes down .

  Here are a few of the last minute cards I have made ........

  I hope everybody has a wonderful pre-Christmas week and find time to RELAX and enjoy the season and those around you !
