Have run home based business designing and producing baby photo cards for 5 years (Mini Ink). Have always loved vintage machinery. I owned and restored a 1959 Austin Lancer car in my wild youth. Love that I have found something that merges the 2! and even better that there are other ladies out there with the same inkling! (no pun intended)
