Please note that I am not in the job market right now. Really, truly NOT.
I leave the resume up only so people don't get a 404, but I'm quite happily
staying busy caring for our sons and working to grown NearSea Naturals, where you'll find "Everything you need to sew, Naturally!"
Good luck finding the
right candidates for any job openings, though. (Note that as of December,
2001, I'm still happily at home and not anticipating this changing for the
next several years. I mention this only because I've gotten several emails
lately asking if I've changed my mind. Nope, but thanks for checking.)
