First blog post

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

Hi I’m Belinda and you can call me “B” I’m a wife of 33 years, mother of two sons ages 32 & 29 mother in love and GG to 4 awesome grandkids. I’m one of 7 siblings. My husband Tim is the love of my life and the best thing in my life. I am an avid reader who loves and enjoys many authors mostly fiction. My favorite authors are Diana Gabaldon, Nora Roberts, Karen Robards, Debbie Macomber, JD Robb and Nicholas Sparks plus many others. My hobbies include all types of paper crafts like scrap booking, card making with stamping and mixed media plus altered arts. I designed and made jewelry for several years until my hands could no longer hold up to the strenuous work with the tools due to a Tremor Disorder and other health issues. I sew occasionally and love making clothes for my grandkids. 
My grandkids are my passion and each of them holds a special place in my heart. They are ages 14, 10, 6 and 9 months. 

I have a large extended family and I love spending time with them. I’m very family oriented. 

While I read avidly I’m am horrible at grammar and an notoriously bad speller. I’m also the mother of a son who is an English major and author. Go figure! 

I love cooking and have specialized in southern cooking for 42 years. I enjoy feeding people and enjoy the smiles a great meal brings. 

I have several health issues that cause me to have physical limitations but I manage to accomplish most of the things I enjoy although I have to create new ways to do somethings and now have less energy and must adhear to time limits. 

Over all I’m quite blessed and love my life.

This blood will be used to explore all types of paper crafts. I love sharing my work and other people’s work also. My other passion is teaching paper crafts. I love it!  So please feel free to contact me with links to your blood, youtube, periscope, Facebook or other links to your work. I’ll explore topics of old and new techniques and show links to great projects. So let’s get started……..
