Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
A Good Partnership
Mom's here, so the sewing machine's out. I might even get my kitchen curtains finished more than a year after they were started. As with many sewing projects over the years, the ideas and the fabric choices come from my mind (and the cost from my wallet), while the actual sewing comes from my mom's hands.
Today for lunch I pulled out a quite elderly tablecloth from the bottom of the drawer and threw it over a card table for us. Mom discovered it had some holes, and suggested cutting it down and re-hemming it. Then I suggested that we whack quite a bit off one end and make napkins. So now I'll have a small tablecloth and napkins custom-made for a card table. Pretty nifty, huh? And all without me shedding frustrated tears over sewing machine-induced vexations.
No, coming up with the idea isn't exactly as arduous as the actual labor, but hey, I'm writing about it, too, so that should help balance things out, right?
