There are homemade cupcakes for my children's birthday parties (which admittedly taste better than they look), and I can pull together a lovely floral arrangement of seasonal flowers. But my house is usually kind of a mess. Piles of papers always creep onto my dining room table and I DO own a sewing machine that has never been taken out of the box.
