<p>I'm currently a stay at home mom to two boys (7 and 5). Most of the time I feel like this is more challenging than my old job as an IT analyst! My husband is super, and is supportive of anything I do - currently addicted to zaar! We've been married 9 years, both our second time around). <br /> <br />I love scrapbooking, cloth diapering, organizing, getting things for really good deals, and spending time with my family. We're in the process of going green and having lots of fun doing it. I have an Etsy store:<br /> <br />My rating system: <br />5 stars - outstanding. Save this one for company or make it very often for ourselves. <br />4 stars - very good. Something we would definitely make again (and again). <br />3 stars - was good. Tastes may not have suited us but was a good recipe. May or may not try it again. <br />2 stars - was ok. Probably would not make again. <br />1 star - didn't turn out, would not make again. <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= alt= /></p>
