A former history major and business school graduate, I left my corporate job in 1999 to stay home with my new baby. Two additional kids later I can be found building intricate spreadsheets detailing such things as a)address lists and b)an inventory of all my kids' clothing (for more efficient purchases at consignment sales). If I'm feeling crazy I might throw in an amortization table. After a crafting hiatus of almost 6 years, I am just now starting to knit, sew, and make other crafts again. I have also been known to make a variety of extremely wonky decorated cakes for my kids' various birthdays.
