making a work at home mom workspace.

Whether you need a whole room for an office, you only need a drawer, or you’re somewhere┬áin-between, having all your business items in one place can be a time and sanity saver. For those of you that need a space somewhere in-between, or don’t have an extra room in your home, you might have toContinue Reading

overlapping content

There is a problem one runs into when she has a business blog and a personal blog [or even multiple blogs of any kind] – keeping the content separate at both blogs. Sometimes keeping the content separate is easy, other times there are posts that blend between the two. {This is also representative of myContinue Reading

pumpkin butterscotch cookies. they are moist, delicious & eggless!

I originally started this blog to journal about my journey as a work-at-home mom. Looking back, I’ve had more posts scattered throughout the miscellany category than those that focus on my WAHM journey.

why it was quiet around here last week

A daily dose of sugar was pretty quiet last week. I was hard at work on the redesign of bellafaith design [my graphic & web design business], so every available minute went directly into it. However, the girls & I made three different types of cookies last week, so I have some new recipes toContinue Reading

humor break

I’ve been working every free moment the past couple of days. Specifically, trying to get my redesign launched for my business site. However, this afternoon I took a little break for some humor. First, was my twitter rant about animal control [if you’re not familiar with twitter, you’ll have to read this from the bottomContinue Reading

OAMC ages like wine…

…it gets better with time. Okay so it’s more like you get better at OAMC with time. My first experience with OAMC, once a month cooking, was back at the end of October. It took all day for me to prepare 27 meals, but I learned a lot [like stuffing manicotti shells with a beefContinue Reading
