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 !

Easter creating !

 With hockey playoff season in full swing , I have had time to play in my room now that I have it ALMOST reorganised ( that will be another story for another day though ! ) . I should have had these projects done days go but it didn't happen so my out-of-town Easter stuff will be late ! I think my family is getting used to that ! LOL !

This is an altered small lunch kit that I am going to send to our long distance Granddaughter . I will fill it with chocolate ........ and I also made a not so altered lunch kit for her little brother ( though he isn't our grandson ) as I know he would be disappointed ( he is 3 ) if she got something and he got nothing !

This is the back of her tin .... it is now sparkly as I decided to coat the back in Sparkle Modge Podge just to make sure the letters stayed put .

This is her card . It is 4 X4 " and I used the Mini-Magnolia Tilda blowing hearts  on it . A Nestie die and the pearls are Deco Pearls ( very cool stuff to use ! Squeeze on as a liquid glob and it becomes a hard " pearl " ) . I have the card sitting in my plant on my table !

This is the card I made for my parents . I adore this Tilda and the Wild Orchid lace is so beautiful to use .... but just for special occasions ! The rosette is made from the new Tim Holtz rosettte die . Easy to use and fun , fun , fun !

This is the interior of the card ..... a Magnolia sentiment , Magnolia paper and a mini 60's Tilda .

Have a great week and enjoy the Spring .... even if you are still getting that horrible white stuff still ! TFL !!!
