I'm a mechanical engineer- stay-at home mom for the last 6 years... I stick to the bigger stuff - tutus, and flowers.... LOL! outsourcing is the way to go for the bows for me! Kept me sane for a couple years, but now perhaps its time to enter the professional working world - watch for the big destash!
