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 !

 SURPRISE !!! That is what I got when I opened my door late this morning as I had a nice package on it delivered by the Purolator driver ! Inside my box was the NICEST surprise from my bestest friend Lisa ... a belated birthday present ! ( My birthday was at the end of March but I love the surprise that this was a birthday that just keeps on giving and giving ! I LOVE HAPPY MAIL ! LOL ) . This is what she sent me

This is a SCENTSY warmer which melts scented wax and makes your house smell OH SO GOOD !!!! I also received a wax tray called Rio Beach but I didn't try it today as I was in the mood for my all time favorite called White Sands ! scentsy has LOTS of different fragrances to choose from !

Doesn't it look nice on my mantle ? I love all of it and being the scrapper that I am , my first thoughts were .... maybe I would add some bling to the center of the flowers ( I didn't ! LOL ) but Scentsy does have warmers that can be decked out with some rub ons !!! Very cool !!!!

If any off you are interested in checking out Scentsy then check out our friend Lori's online site at https://lorigriffiths.scentsy.ca/Home  . Tell her I sent you to her ! LOL !

And Lisa , I didn't forget about you ! Thank you from the absolute bottom of my heart for being such a fabulous friend ! You stick with me through thick and thin .... and my odd " mistakes " ! Amazing how such a friendship has grown over the past 5 or so years considering we met ONLINE over a silly FASTENATOR ( all you scrappers , remember that silly tool that we ALL had to have at one point .... then tried to regift it to whomever would take it off our hands ? ROFLMBO ! ) .

Thanks girlfriend for being there .... and the fantastic gift ! HUGE cyber HUG coming your way !
