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 !

Just a little greeting ....... and some creating time

 Summer is definitely over as the leaves have turned and are piling up on the ground , the RV has been put away for the winter and I have finally got to play with my Copics and paper . It was a great summer but it is also nice to be home for longer then it takes to do laundry and buy groceries !

 My DH and I also celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary in the last couple of weeks ! WOW , that is so hard to believe that we have been together so long ....... and how much older we are ! LOL ! 40 YEARS !!!! Still boggles the mind !!! And I never realized what rebels the 2 of us are as they said it wouldn't last !!! YES , I am sure that some people still can't believe we are still together ........  the short version of the story is those same people tried to break us up from Day 1 , caused many tears , much unnecessary grief and the sad truth be it got them nowhere !!! We have had more then our share of bumps on this journey but we are staying strong , still best friends , still lovers and still more in love then 40 years ago , not the " hot " love of a young couple but the more mature , comfortable love that comes with age ........ seldom is there a moment that either of us think " what IF  ? " .......... Yes , we don't agree all the time , yes we get mad at each other and can have some " words " and yes we go to bed mad at one another ..... BUT , we wouldn't be human if we didn't ! At the end of the day we still love one another and we still are there for each other . SOUL MATES ......... not sure what that means but it fits if you want to put a label on us ................ I bend sometimes , he bends other , it works for us ........... I spoil him yes I cook , I clean and I even iron HIS clothes ......... and he spoils me ....... heck , if you saw what I spent over the past 10 years on craft supplies you would " GET " what I mean ! LOL !

  Anyways , after our summer of the RV and camping it took us a few weeks to get settled at home , unload the RV and get the summer dust out of the house ! DH has spent a fair bit of time with our boys hunting ( yes , 2 of the 3 have already bagged their moose ) so that gives me free time to play . Haven't spent a lot of time doing cards though .... BUT , I did finally break out the Copics last week and did this card for my Mom's birthday which is coming up soon . I have " stole " a few cards lately from my stash for birthdays so it is time to start filling up the basket again !!!

Sorry for the terrible photo ! I am not sure what is going on between my camera , phone and laptop but that is a terrible image !!! Unfortunately the card is in the mail already or I would just redo the picture !!! This is a Hangler image that I had in my stash and she is colored with Copic markers . All the " stuff " on my card is from my stash dressed up with either Distressed ink or Stickles . Was fun to just play for a couple days !!!!

 Have a great week everybody and hope you are all finding time to do some creating !!!
