who has her own web site entitled 'Sweet Dreams'
describes herself as:
let's see . . . I'm in my (very) late 30's, married
and living in a small town in Northwestern Illinois.
My husband, Matt is a 'computer dude',
he has his own consulting business.
'retired' from making jewelry (after 9
years), hoping to be able to make some extra money
selling cakes locally. I have had several non-cake
related, yet still food-related, orders so I'm
branching out. I've already changed my business
cards to say 'Baking for all occasions' instead
of 'Cakes for . . .'! I also am a Wilton Method
instructor, teaching courses 1, 2, & 3 at an Ace
Hardware and the local community college.
