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 !

Happy 80th Birthday to my Mom !

 I was unable to go visit my Mom for her birthday being we had just made a trip for my parents 60th Wedding Anniversary at the end of August . Sometimes living so far away sucks bigtime .... especially as my parents get older and I notice such a huge change in both of them when I do get to see them . I decided I would spend a little extra time and effort on her birthday card .... being she is 80 as of October 16th ! This card went together so easy , even though it was time consuming ! Mom has already received it and loves it so that made me happy !



The easel

 the close-up

Yes , this is a family portrait of myself ( though my hair was NEVER red as a child ! LOL ) , My brother and my oldest sister . Mom always dressed her in pink because she was blond and me in blue ( because I has brunette hair and blue eyes ) ........ and my brother was just " dressed " LOL !

Happy Birthday MOM !

 So I promised a few photos of some of my other creations that I finished and have on the " old " laptop ( which I still perfer to my NEW one ! ) . I am enjoying sitting crocheting in my spare time but not sure what I am going to do with all these little items as my grandkids are way too big for most of them ! LOL !

 These are all for babies and toddler and I am willing to sell them :)

Have a great weekend everybody !!!
