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 !

  I am just busting with excitement for my good friend Lisa and I just have to share the news along with some history ! I met Lisa online through a scrapbooking forum a  number of years ago and we became friends . We say we were brought together because of THE FASCINATOR ( true story ! The Fascinator is history but the friendship has been cemented because of that silly stapler ! LOL ) . About a year after I met Lisa , she started her own online scrapbook store called Lisa's Scrap Shack ( some of you may remember it ) . After a few years Lisa sold her business to tackle new endeavors ! Lisa is FEARLESS about trying new things .... including raising a couple alpacas , spinning her own yarn , dying it and finding the time to actually knit and raise her son while her husband Wayne works away from home ! She even managed to get certification for teaching Copics and has been on a number of DTs . Not too long ago Lisa hooked up with her friend Tara and gave classes on how to use Copics at Tara's storefront in Vernon called FORGET ME NOT SCRAPBOOKING . Well one thing led to another and Lisa's passion for scrapbooking and creating has become a business for her and Tara as she has now joined forces with Tara in the business .

  Earlier this week Tara and Lisa acquired the online scrapbook business of Savvy 'n Sassy from Rhea Marriot in Red Deer , Alberta ! By the end of this month Lisa will be running the online business ! I am thrilled as I hear that there are going to be some AMAZING things coming in to the storefront and the online store ! I can also attest that if you are buying from the online store ( and the store ) you will get first rate service , quick delivery and fantastic customer service ! If there is anything you need or want , I am sure Lisa and Tara will do anything in their power to bring it in for you ! Not sure but I am also thinking that there may be some surprises coming from them too !!!

 Congratulations ladies and best of luck on all the new things that will be happening over the next few years !

 By the way Lisa ........ my husband has told me he can't " afford " to give you his pay cheque any more though ! Yeah , we will see about that !   LOL ! 

So ladies , give the ladies a chance to get organized ( they actually have to go across the border and get the stock from Rhea ) .... knowing these two ladies it will happen quickly ! ....... for the BEST scrapbook store online and storefront ! Tara's store is open in Vernon .
