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 !

Almost the end of July

 WOW ! Where has the month of June and July gone ? Seems like just days ago we moved the RV to the campsite and it has already been 2 months ! We have had some miserably cool , rainy days and we have had some HOT days but it seems the rain is winning here this summer ! Strange when the southern portion of our province is breaking records with super hot weather and days and weeks without rain !

 We really haven't been home much since we moved into the campground but do manage to go get groceries and make appointments when we need to . Have meet some very interesting people this year . Amazing how a campfire can make people stop to talk .... or the Yorkies ! Mind you , the Yorkies are not impressed when somebody stops by and bring a dog with them ! The noise is unbearable !!! Usually it doesn't last long though ! Funny how many people we have seen traveling with their cats this year ! Most are traveling in motorhomes and their cats are outside on a leash ( our cat would NEVER put up with a leash and harness ! I wouldn't even attempt to put one on her ! LOL ! ) . I think our cat is just happy to stay home and be the princess ! Thank heavens for good housesitters !

 Have been really missing my crafting but think it will be a couple months before I can play again with my Copics and ink . Haven't got enough room to pack them here being I do have a big tote of yarn . Have made a few crocheted things for the little store here but this year nothing is selling .

 We leave in 2 weeks for our summer holidays . 2 weeks of CAMPING !!!! LOL ! Yes , retirement is really hard to adjust too ! LOL !  Actually DH has been doing some contract work so he keeps busy for a couple hours a week . i usually am found outside reading a book or walking the dogs while he works .

 Hope everybody has a great summer ! I will be back creating cards in October as I was informed we will be camping until the end of September .

 Take care , travel safe , enjoy summer and see you in the Fall !
