Suzanna, I know what you mean about pinching pennies! I worked in a Lawn & Garden Store till last Aug. when I hurt my back. That's why I became a SAHM again. It has been hard on my family without the extra income coming in. God has always taken care of us!!
I took the Wilton courses because my sister begged me to & also so I could get out of the house. I had been on bedrest from Aug to Oct. I was very bored!! Cake decorating is my first hobby!!! Yep... I never had a hobby before this.. well cleaning if you can call that one, LOL!!! I have always lived through my kids & DH. Not anymore! I have spent some money getting started but it has all been worth it!! I'll be going back into the work force hopefully in July. Then I won't be able to do decorating as much.
We need the extra income! I hate it but we need it with 2 half grown kids! TEENS!
