Hi Guys! My small watering can doesn’t hold much water and when I try filling it up, half of it spills as I make my way to my plants.  Here’s my new watering “can”.  My favorite thing about this is how much fun my kids are having watering the plants.  One thing less for me […]


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, […]

Kind of like the Poltergeist girl looking at the TV while she slowly said “They’re back!”   That’s how I feel writing this blog…I’m sloooowwwwlllyyyyy getting back into the blog world after being out for a couple of weeks.  It doesn’t mean my absence was out of lack of inspiration, it was actually quite the […]

  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 […]

Ever since I was young, I remember my mother and grandmothers keeping a slice of uncooked beet in the fridge.  Every morning after applying their moisturizer, they would head over to the fridge and rub the beet on their cheeks and lips.  This was their daily makeup.  They always had that healthy glow about them.

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 […]

Quick Fix for Too Low V-Neck Sweaters

It’s been over a year that I’ve worn this sweater.  I hate to wear a shirt underneath because it adds unwanted bulges.  Lord knows I don’t need more of those.  So here’s what I did!  To get a PDF on how to do it,  just click on the picture.  


Gift Giving Ideas for the Holidays

by SweetSugarMama on November 29, 2011

I love the holidays.  I know it’s not all about the gifts but for me giving is such a rush.  I can’t just give anything.  I have to brainstorm on things the person I’m giving to will absolutely love.  It doesn’t hurt I’m such a product freak.  Here’s my list so far.  Hope it helps […]
