Hello all! I am a new homemaker, and a student. I had been a worker bee until about 1 year ago, when a back injury took me out of my job for good. I still have tons of energy, and since being a homemaker is now my new JOB, I am driven to perform with excellence....problem? My mother never showed me any of this! I suppose perhaps I just wasn't paying attention.

I am eager to learn, and have had more than a few blunders in my learning processes (jellies and bread making particularly, albeit I finally got the bread making down pat).

I want to make my own everything, basically, and save money in the process. I look forward to interacting with other people who can share their pearls of wisdom and help me through this process!
