icon_biggrin.gif Hello Everyone My Name is Kimberly. I ran across this site last week by accident and am soooo happy I did. You folks are great! I have posted a question or two but never thought to introduce myself until I notices others doing it. Well, anyway I am a 34 year old mother of 1 (the cutest 2 1/2 year old boy you ever saw). I am a stay at home mom who babysits 4 days a week and works outside the home as a veterinary tech.9 hours a week. Since I am new to cake decorating and will be taking more information than I will be giving out on the subject I would be more than happy to answer any dog/cat questions you would have for me.
I have 10 years experience in that field.
I will graduate Wilton I sat. night. I love it! My husband got me the class for Easter, and keeps asking "So how much is this $15.00 class going to cost me anyway?" LOL
I best keep this short...don't want to bore you all so soon.

Welcome to the "family." I must warn you...this site is addicting icon_wink.gif . I saw the link to this site on another forum, so I thought that I would check it out...I have been here ever since. I am also a stay at home mom. I have a two year old and a 9 month old. I also attend college full time, but take my classes online so that I can be at home with the kids.

Yes, I definately plan on taking all the classes! Class II doesn't start for a few weeks so I am stocking up on ideas of things I want to try. So many ideas so little time.

Hi Kimberly, I am a 34 yr. old stay-at-home mom too,and I am brand new to this site as well. I have 3 kids, 13, 9 & 3. I have been doing cakes for friends and family for about 14 years, but I joined a mothers group, and after making a cake for one of my new friends, and over 140 moms in the group, my calender is getting filled quickly with requests, although I think I will only do about 3 or 4 a month. I am really enjoying the opportunities to try new things, and I know I will depend on this site for advise.

Hi, Kimberly. Welcome to the site! I know that you will love it here. I started only a few weeks ago, and I am totally addicted. But being around other decorators has helped me alot. The information, advice and inspiration they give is priceless. I have found through these very emails and posts the will to push myself harder to aspire to bigger and better creations. Again, I say welcome to our family!
Happy Baking!!
