Evil, Evil Sugar!

Image
A while ago, my husband and I went to see Kevin Smith at a comedy show.  He was there to make people laugh, of course, but surprisingly, he also made people think about their health.  He took us on his journey of weight loss.  I don't know if you've noticed, but he has lost quite a bit of weight!  It was pretty simple how he did it too.  He stopped eating sugar.  That's it.  Taking sugar out of his diet made him a healthier, leaner person.

Making $$ While Staying Home

Image
Being a stay at home mom is great!  I love being with my babies, and being able to take care of all of the family stuff.

I try to help make a little money any way I can to help out.  I'm pretty busy throughout the day with one thing or another, so I needed to find something that I can pick up at any time of the day to work on.  I have my crocheting business, but sometimes, when it's slower, I wanted to have something else that I could do.

FREE Mickey Mouse Glove Applique Crochet Pattern!!

Image
Recently, I've been making different characters into Easter/Halloween baskets.  I have an order for a Mickey Mouse one and I wanted to add some gloves to it.  I went to look for a basic pattern to guide me, but there were no patterns for crocheted Mickey Mouse glove appliques.  So I decided to whip some up and post the free pattern here for anyone else who may need some!  Enjoy!

Tearless Onions

Image
I hate cutting onions!  I used to be able to cut them with no side affect, but for the past couple of years, onions make me cry as if my favorite character on a TV show died!  It's so frustrating, because I put onions in a lot of my meals.  I always have to grab a tissue or a paper towel, just to prep myself before beginning to cut.

     And then I learned about the culprit.

Cleaning Out My Cabinents

I feel like I should be playing Eminem's "Cleaning Out My Closet" as I write this.

I think that song would be too short for how long this took though.  SO, as I mentioned in a previous post, I bought a lot of overstock on bathroom items at a closing grocery store the other day.

The problem, though, is that I didn't have any space for them!
