I am a retired grandmother who loves quilting and paper crafting. I live in the sunny south and I have 3 daughters, 4 grandsons and 1 grandaughter. I have had my own retail businesses in my other life but I am quite content now to stay home and play. I'm originally from Long Island, NY where my husband and I ran our own Furniture store. In that time I acquired an interior design degree and purchased all the accessories for our store. My last business (on my own) was a scrapbook and stamping store where I taught others to make greeting cards and embellish their scrapbooks.
