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 !

Some crafty time in a busy month !

 I finally sat at my desk for a couple hours and did a couple of Thank You cards for my parents and sister . We were supposed to go away to a company function out of town this past week but I came down with the flu so cancelled my flight and sent DH away solo . He had to go as he had meetings to attend all of one day then attended the function that evening . I missed having a weekend away but did so enjoy my quiet time too as I felt pretty yucky for a couple of days .... not as bad as some people though ! I avoided that horrible cold and cough ( knock on wood ! ) too so my recovery time was a lot shorter .....  YEAH !!!!!

 I dug into my Mini Magnolias that I had planned on using for Christmas cards and didn't . The Mini Magnolias as a quick color and I didn't fuss much with them . I even cheated and used pre-made card blanks and just did a quick decorate on them ....... I was already late getting them away ! LOL !  Anyways , they are in the mail as of this morning !

 I have a new project on my desk and hope to find a few minutes to play tonight . DH is away as of tomorrow morning for a couple of days so I can get lost in my room and forget to come out tomorrow and Tuesday too !!!! I love when he goes on business trips sometimes !!!  I also have my crochet hook out and am busy creating some scarfs . Will have to remember to take a photo of these ones I am doing as the last 8 ended up in parcels before I remembered that I hadn't taken a photo ! Speaking of taking pictures , DH bought me a new camera for Christmas .... a pretty little Canon Powershot Elph 510HS so I hope I figure out HOW to edit the photos on the MAC properly as these are NOT the best photos of the cards !!!! The dull day didn't help either though !!! So stay tuned , I promise to get better !!!!

 Have a great week everybody and happy creating !!!

  2. Happy New Year Donna!

    I'm glad that you're feeling better, and hope the creativity continues: These cards are gorgeous!

    Can't wait to see your scarves, too ... I'm a knitter (just learned to knit AND purl ... only took me SEVEN YEARS!).

    Good luck with the camera and photo editing ... new technology equals even amounts of Yay and Grr!

  3. OH you cheater!! LOL! Actually this is a pretty smart idea having card blanks. So cute and I can't wait to see what your project is. Sorry to hear you had the flu but I do agree it's nice when the boys go away sometimes. Hope you're feeling better! Hugs!
