For the past three years since I’ve been blogging, my articles on homemade skin care constantly receive the most traffic and trackbacks. This is one of my favorite and most useful hobby and I love to share and show people just how easy it is to do at home! This summer, I will be launching classes on the most popular topics. The classes will be held at the Ultimate Mom’s Club (UMC). The UMC is a Work, Learn & Play cooperative of home-based mothers, hosted in a private home on 5 beautiful acres in Cedar Park, TX.
