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 !

Over on the OUTLAWZ the Copic / Promarker challenge this week is to do with Back to School . You can find the challenge here . Well being my kids are well out of school ( I didn't say they had all grown up though did I ? LOL ! ) I had to think more along the lines of my Grandkids ! Back to school for our oldest granddaughter means one of two things ....... her birthday at the end of the month ( she will be 16 !!!! ) and her volleyball is going to be in full swing for the next 4 or 5 months ! She is gung ho about volleyball and is playing on the Grade 12 A team this year as setter ! She is hoping the team goes to Provincials then on to Nationals this year again !!!  Needless to say , we are proud of her and Grandma was more then stocked about the new Magnolia Tilda image she just received !!! I had to get her inked up immediately !

Did I mention that I am a very YOUNG Grandma ? LOL ! So much fun to watch my Grands grow up .... much more fun to watch MY kids squirm because they are raising teenagers !!! LOL ! Guess the learner's license is coming soon too !!!! Happy Birthday Courteney !!!!

Happy creating  and have a good week !!! We are off for another couple of weeks holidays in the RV  but Fall is definitely here so the Taj is being brought home at the end of this camp and put away for the winter ! Sad summer missed us but looking forward to being at home on a more regular bases and getting back in my room !

 Pop on over to The Outlawz and join in the fun ! My card is just getting in under the wire for this week but they have a challenge every day so there is no excuse for not joining and playing along !

Please bear with me !

 Sometimes the brain becomes mush and things don't come together like you think they should ... namely changing by template on my BLOG ! Please bear with me while I try straighten out the mess I have created so I can get back to some real creating !
