I'm a work-at-home mother of five from small-town Utah. Joining us in our crazy life are three dogs, two cats, and four chickens. I enjoy sewing, crochet, cooking, food preservation, rescuing and refinishing furniture, gardening, photography (when I'm not between cameras - which I currently am), history and sociology, anything outdoors except bug collecting, and a plethora of other activities. I collect salt and pepper shakers. I abhor folding socks.
