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 !

  The past month was crazy ! So much happened that it is so hard to believe we had the month of May ! We made a quick trip south for 5 days to visit my family . My parents are elderly ( seems odd to admit that as they are still Dad & Mom even though they are in their 80's ) so it was a trip we had to take . Amazing when you think how fast the last year went as it felt like we had been down to visit not long before our trip . We did hit a silly snow snow storm on the way home ! Fortunately it wasn't sticking to the road !!!

 The weekend after we got back home we moved the RV up to the campsite . Nice to have it there and have the option of whether to spend a few days there or stay home ! We did spend a week there and had BEAUTIFUL summerlike weather !!! Unfortunately then the rain started to fall and has at some point for the majority of the days since ! We have spent a few days at the RV regardless :-) 

 Our days at home have been busy between laundry , grocery shopping and just trying to keep the house clean and yard done up . Of course we also had a 5 day trip out of town to see  CARRIE UNDERWOOD'S BLOWN AWAY concert !!!!! That was what the family gave DH as a retirement gift . TOTALLY amazing concert and so worth the trip !!!! A few days shopping at west Edmonton Mall was a nice treat too ! LOL !

 The few evenings we have been home I did make one grad card for Granddaughter #1 ! Hard to believe she is graduating already as she was just a baby yesterday !!! All I can say is I am blessed to have my kids so young and be able to watch these momentous occasions with the Grandkids . That week I also got to go to our youngest grandchild's school concert .... he is kindergarten age !!!!

 This is the card I made Granddaughter #1 using a Saturated Canary image and my Copics . Was fun to be able to do some creating !!!

I also did this note pad cover for a friend we camp with .
This is another Saturated Canary image and it is so cute . She was so excited when I gave it to her ..... her husband said she would have to go buy  a pair of shorts to match the image ! I wouldn't tell you what she told him !!!! LOL !

 We are now into June and for the first time in a long time , I actually bought a couple of cards instead of making them ! Oh well , they say it is the thought that counts ....... right ? LOL !

 Well have a great week everybody and I hope you manage to see some sun , enjoy the great outdoors and maybe some crafting thrown in . We are heading back to the RV in the morning . I have a couple new books to read and my crocheting with me so I don't care what the weather does . I am going to CHILL-AXE !!!!!

Like my Stella ! LOL !
