I am a professional costume designer and shop manger, married, and a mother of 2. I am an avid baker, a better than average cook, and an amateur confectioner. I know my way around basic handyman skills, but don't own the tools, sadly. I am into board gaming, playing with my kids, and trying to keep my head above water. I am a consummate optimist and feel like I can do anything i set my mind to.
