About Me

My photo
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 !

Almost Thanksgiving ( in Canada )

 Wow ! The temperature  has been up and down here ... cool in the morning with frost and fog most mornings and then warm in the afternoon ! It is a little silly considering all the rain we had over the summer to actually see sun for longer then 5 minutes .... and NO rain ! The colors are beautiful though ! I would upload a few photos but have bought a new laptop and can't get it to like anything I do .... and I can't get it to accept my Canon Rebel driver at all ! Silly thing ( or silly person that is actually using the laptop ! ) is driving me crazy ! I haven't got to spend much time in my crappy room as of late either so no cards are done . I do have a few projects I have done in the last few weeks so once I can get them uploaded then I will share them with all of you .

 We are just finished 2 weeks of holidays so it is nice to be back to some kind of schedule that doesn't involve packing and unpacking every weekend ( as much as I love camping ! LOL ! ) . The RV is cleaned , winterized and put away in storage for at least 5 months . We actually only spent the first week of our holidays in the RV in the campground ( where we had cold and rainy weather ! ) so we packed up our site and headed on back home  The last week of holidays we spent cleaning and unpacking the RV and we had a half load of gravel brought in for our driveway so that took a few more days then we expected to get spread ... but the sun shone ( of course ! LOL ) .

 This week has involved trying to get back into some kind of routine with DH back at work . I have spent most of the week cleaning and scrubbing the summer dust out of the house . Also had a few appointments that I had to attend . It sure made for a quick moving week and I still have not got done what I hoped to before playing with my Copics and stamps . NHL hockey and NFL football has started again though so I will be disapearing into my room a lot of evenings while DH plays remote click-click !!! grrrrr !!!! Seems he has suddenly taken an interest in BASEBALL too ......................................

 Have a great Thanksgiving weekend everybody . I plan on RELAXING and playing in my room for the most part and hope you all manage to find some time to relax too , whether it is with your hobbies or with your loved ones ! Stay tuned for some projects once I can figure out HOW to get them on this computer !!! LOL !
