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 smile for all of you !

 Our summer has been dismal to say the least but the past 4 days has brought sunshine which has brought everybody a smile ! Our neighbour has rallied for a few days as his boys came up to see him . Amazing what the power of love can do ..... and a set of Mustang car keys can do ! One of the boys ( okay he is still their boy even though he is 40 ! ) dropped his Mustang keys into Handsome Man's hands when he became aggitated and suddenly a huge smile came across his face as he lovingly rubbed the keys . You see Handsome Man is a trucker from way back when and anything that represents anything that has wheels on it makes him happy ! One day soon Handsome Man will be driving the BIGGEST and Prettiest truck through those Pearly Gates and will have his own special lineup of fancy cars to race from cloud to cloud .... and he will be happy and at peace .

 We also have our own little smile in our lilac bush which is right beside our deck .... in the form of 3 little robins ! Daddy and Momma Robin have not been too worried about us being there as they fly in and out of our tree with bugs , worms and moths to feed these little guys . Every day they grow bigger and bigger and it wouldn't be long before they have spread their wings and gone . By the way , this is the third year Momma has used this nest ! Talk about recycling ! LOL ! In the early spring she was cleaning it but then the rain came and she diasapeared . Imagine our surprise to see she had laid eggs later on !

 Just a few days old .... beginning of August , balls of fuzz

 Small nest and a strange pillow
 The nest from the ground
 3 little baby robins
 Feed us ! These little guys are always hungry ! aug 9th , they have grown feathers and are getting their colors . Wouldn't be long before they are flying in the wild blue yonder !

  It can be said that humans and birds are a lot  alike  ....... We all need our wings so we can fly ...... or maybe some of us would rather have MUSTANG keys ! Love you Ronnie and hope that you get the best set of wings and that Mustang !

August 11 ........ baby robin #1 flew out of the nest this afternoon  and by evening they had all flown out of it . They didn't go far ... just across my yard to the retaining wall and 2 made it into the trees . Papa and Momma Robin were watching the whole time ......... One little robin is still trying to figure out how to get up the wall as he landed on the grass . I will have to keep the dogs in until I find out whether he figured out how to get up there .........

  1. Poetic prose Donna! Hopefully we can all find a smile in your words ... and perhaps a few feathers to help each of us on our journeys.
