Introduction: Turning a Hobby or Favorite Topic Into a Picture Showcase

About: I am a full time employee, a single mom, and I love to cook and do things around my house.

Do you have a hobby you want to show off, but everyone says you are annoying about it? Do you love lighthouses, want to see them, but don't want an entire bookcase of knick knacks you need to dust every month?
