Hello world!

I am a mother of 4, 2 girls and 2 boys.  I am a grandmother of 6, 5 girls and 1 boy.  I have always loved to create handmade things.  I believe it’s actually therapy for me.  I love to sew and craft with paper.  I still work part time as a hairdresser in an upscale retirement community located in San Ramon, Ca.  Currently, most of my sewing is doing alterations for the residents in the community.  For the last almost 3 years my new passion is paper crafting (greeting cards and quilled paper projects).  I’ve been inspired by so many amazing designers in the world of paper crafting and I will give credit to those wonderful women who have been generous to share all their “How to’s” with those of us who are beginners.  With this blog I will attempt to “pay it forward”. In this picture my two oldest grands are missing but not missing in my heart.  I will feature them in a later post.008
