    I am a homemaker (for now)..have always worked, and was an aide from the time my kids were in kindergarten.. they are now 27 and 30! I have alot of time on my hands.
    Just recently bought a scrollsaw and am excited to start using it.....I am a avid crafter, and One of the things I like to do with scrollsaw patterns is to use it, for now, for scherenschnitte...(paper cutting)..they certainly make beautiful cuttings.
