I'm a 41-year-old homeschooling mom of one who specializes in quick and easy crafts. I love writing for various sites on the net and sharing my expertise. I have a real name. It's Cherie. ;) Growing up, if it didn't come from a box, a bag or a can my mother didn't cook it. Consequently, I developed a taste (and somewhat of a fondness!) for those types of foods and have learned to play around with them to suit my needs.
