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.
I've been window shopping for fondant/gumpaste cutters and made myself a wish list (alas, I can't link to it in my sidebar because I'm the only one who can see it) of about 55 items. Considering the average price of those items is (I'm guessing) about $15-20, I don't suppose I'll ever own them all, but at least when I feel the itch to add one or two to my collection now and then, I'll already have the possibilities narrowed down. Oh, and these, too.
Or I could go this route (or this alternate route), and make my own. Which just goes to show you that crafts are like bunnies...they breed prolifically after their own kind. But the supply list isn't too terribly long and wouldn't take up too terribly much space and the basic kit wouldn't cost too terribly much money, so it might be worth the investment.
In related news, I made two more cakes yesterday -- four in one week! -- and will post photos sometime soon.
