Once a mechanical and materials engineer that worked on rockets, I am now a stay-at-home mom to three incredible children who let me craft and create to my heart's content. I also teach chess to elementary students after school once a week. I first got hooked to Instructables when my husband forwarded the Kidnapped Mermaid Costume to me in 2009 and I had to make it for myself. I recently started writing my own instructables after seeing such fun contests and tempting prizes up for grabs.
