Elf Goodbye Letter

by SweetSugarMama on December 19, 2012

Hi guys! Sorry I’ve been slacking.  My life has been amazingly crazy lately.  We’re in the process of moving to our new house, so to say I’ve been creating is a total lie!  I’ve attempted to make some pottery but nothing major.  I promise to post some pics when we get settled! I want to […]

  Anything to get my boys to love reading as much as I do.  Trust me…it’s been a struggle since they started to read.  There are books that catch their attention right away, this series has been one of those. Taylor was soooo excited when the new Tom Angleberger’s book, The Secret of the Fortune […]

Hi Guys!  I know…I’ve been missing in action.  We’re just back from a long vacation so I’m slooowly getting  back to blogging and sharing with you all the stuff I’ve been working on.  Once the kids are back in school, I promise I’ll bombard you with new things to try.  My time off doesn’t mean […]


Post image for What To Do With All That Easter Candy – Chocolate Covered Popcorn

Usually I’ll throw away all the candy left over from a holiday within hours of that holiday being over.  I mean like 9 a.m. the next morning over.  Somehow I missed one bag of unopened M&Ms.  The pastel colored bag was sitting in my pantry as I was pulling stuff  out to make popcorn and […]

As I headed out the door today to pick the kids up from school the temperature outside was screaming Summer while the allergies kept reminding me we’re still in Spring.  I won’t let a little thing like seasons get in the way of getting a head start on the fun.  I’m dreaming of the beach, […]


Fun with Clay!

  I must admit I’m one of those parents who seldom had Play-Doh around when my kids were smaller.  Whenever my kids received a goody bag that contained the party size containers of this stuff I would quietly stuff it at the bottom of a garbage bag.  Maybe because I’m a neat freak?  I just don’t […]


Post image for DIY Easy To Make Hand Scrub & Behind the Scenes of a Blog Post

My boys thought I should write about our homemade hand scrubs.  We love to give these to teachers for Valentines Day and grandmothers for Mother’s Day.  You can give this hand scrub as a gift any time of the year because it’s that easy to make and as inexpensive as you want. Here’s what you’ll […]

Post image for DIY: La La Loopsy Jeans & Shirt

My niece is turning 5 soon and she is obsessed  with La La Loopsy dolls and the color pink.  I’m not a lover of pink outfits so I decided to give her enough pink to make her happy and enough minty green to please me, after all I’m the one that made it (she takes […]

Post image for Lunch Art….So Much Fun!!!!

I’m no fan of starting back after two great weeks of sleeping in and hanging out.  No homework, projects or driving like a mad woman through town.  School will be back in session tomorrow and the necessary madness begins. My kids thought it would be a great idea to write a post about the daily drawings […]
