I am a full time homemaker, and have consequently learned many skills over the past 15 years.
I have been gardening for as long as I can remember. Each year, I discover something new about organic, natural gardening. I spend hours researching and compiling information on anything from garden pests to square-foot gardening. Thus, my knowledge and expertise is broad and experienced.
In addition to gardening, I have spent much of my time in the kitchen. I have been cooking since I was able to help my mom do the simplest tasks. Now, my experience and knowledge has increased exponentially. I do everything from weekly meal plans to homemade breads and pastries from scratch - that is, from grain to table.
I have run my own jewelry business, and I spend large amounts of time on arts and crafts, and have much experience in creating everything from cakes to Christmas ornaments to origami.
Really, my knowledge base in continually growing, and there is nothing I will not take the time to do and learn. My goal is to offer courses for anyone wanting to learn about home-based projects.
