I have been a crafter/collector most of my life. I recently retired and have finally had the time to pursue my hobbies. I paint, sew, crochet, quilt, and collect a massive amount of supplies!! I was part owner of a large craft and gift show for about 20 years. My work as a Paralegal for 30 years limited my creative time until my retirement. I have two adult sons who, with their wives, live on the west coast.
