As a single mom, I still feel the need to work extra hard to help my family afford luxuries and actives. I have a home crafting business,called a TAMM creation; I do freelance writing, and I sell Do You Bake?, Sass N Frass and JewelScent.
This blog is all about those business ventures, news and updates, how they can work for you, and how you can purchase items yourself. On the sidebar are links to other blogs that go with my other ventures, and ordering websites.
