The Last Thing I Made [in January]

I started off the year with tons of crafty goals, but ever since I completed the project below I've been hit with a kind of slump. This is bad because this year I wanted to focus more on my crafts. I wanted to restock my shop with premade items and work towards participating in a craft fair this fall. I've sense found myself in a slump, which isn't uncommon. Depression and anxiety are very real, people. My house is just barely together and my motivation for creating anything new is low. I was commissioned back in November for this diaper bag for a friend. She's expecting number two, and her husband wanted her to have a special-to-her bag … [Read more...]

This Year Make Your Smile Brilliant! {Review}

smile brilliant trays are easy to use

It's amazing how humbling it is when you take a good look at your teeth. Growing up my mom never put too much emphasis on dental hygiene, but rather left it up to us to take care of our teeth using her own experiences as an example. It must have worked because I never had a cavity in my childhood. It wasn't until I had my wisdom teeth removed that I even saw my first cavity. Now that I'm an adult I take brushing my teeth very seriously. I think most of us can agree that white teeth are attractive. Sometimes a good looking smile can be the cherry on top to looking and feeling good. When I was given the opportunity to work with Smile … [Read more...]

How to Switch from GoDaddy to a New Host

GoDaddy ahs a lot of issues. Make the switch to a new host today!

A brief history of Atta Mama: I started on Blogger in January of 2012. I purchased a domain name through GoDaddy, eventually. In 2013 Blogelina was offering free hosting for her subscribers. As an amazing intro into the world of blogging I trusted the products she endorsed and I jumped on board. Then I moved to Wordpress and rebranded into the Atta Mama blog you see today. In 2014 I applied a coupon and simply renewed my hosting plan. I wound up getting it pretty cheap and had no outstanding issues, however there was always a haunting feeling that in order to grow I needed to switch to a better hosting company. I'll tell you what was … [Read more...]

Hand Foot Mouth: Natural Cures and Remedies

hand foot mouth natural cures

Where have I been, you say? Oh, just dealing with normal holiday hustle, work, and... DUN DUN DUN! Our home has been struck with the nasty hand, foot, mouth disease. Hand, foot, and mouth disease is a viral infection that starts with a fever, then turns into a rash. The effects vary, but it's generally a children's illness. Though when the adults get it it can be either really mild or really terrible. I got the former; My husband the later. Poor guy. My son got a mild fever a few days before Christmas. When he broke out in the iconic rash we knew what it was. The fever broken and he was pretty much fine afterwards. Hand, foot, mouth … [Read more...]

Kicking 2015’s butt!

2014 popular posts

I haven't been feeling very wordy lately, but I wanted to meet my goal of getting this post finished and published. Ironically, my word for this year is ACCOUNTABILITY. Last year my word was TIME, and I wanted to encompass managing my time and fitting in enough space to slow down as well. Though contradictory, I was able to fulfill a lot of my personal desires by reminding myself of that simple word. This year I'm going to try and push that even more by holding myself accountable for my actions and connecting the pathways of my own future through my own actions. I thought on it long enough, and that's the best word I could find to summarize … [Read more...]

Holiday Cheer at Busch Gardens® Tampa Christmas Town

Busch Gardens Christmas Village

Christmas in my family has always been big. We didn't grow up with much, but my mother worker her butt off to make sure that the winter holiday was a joyous one. I normally travel for the holidays to reconnect with distant relatives and spend the days surrounded by people I love. Because of many different things, traveling was not an option this year so my little family of four decided to make the most of our quiet Christmas at home. In order to still make this year memorable, we looked for things to do here in Tampa that would have the kids excited all month long. One of our favorite excursions was when we visited Busch Gardens® Tampa for … [Read more...]

Christmas, man. Snuck up on us, eh? I'm going to be honest with you: I'm still sewing up a few gifts that need to be mailed. Yes, MAILED! I'm the worst ever when it comes to scheduling in time to craft all of my overly-ambitious goals for home made Christmas.

This is My Life {Printable Planner Review}

virtuous woman calendar quote

Getting organized is something I'm constantly struggling with. Luckily these days there are literally hundreds of resources to help you stay on task and get goal oriented. Lately I've been focusing on positive thought as this year comes to a close. I followed along in a  eCourse recently about staying Blissfully Balanced as a mom who has the job of stay-at-home homemaker, full-time student, part-time employee in retail, and a WAHM (sewing, crafting, and this blog of course). I am overly ambitious. I get overwhelmed and then I crumble under pressure and everyone pays. I'm learning to take it easy on myself and not load up on too much. And to … [Read more...]

Christmas Savings at the Dollar Tree

dollar tree keepsake

The holiday seems like it's sneaking up, doesn't it? I'm scrambling to get sewing finished and gifts wrapped, not to mention having to actually mail things so they get to their destination in time for Christmas morning festivities. With working, school, and home life I'm actually very proud of my progress so far and I'm confident it'll all work out. And thanks to stores like the Dollar Tree I'm able to save money while making sure everything is in place. I had big plans to make a Santa inspired wreath from tulle and such, but alas I am also overly ambitious. As things began piling up I realized I was the only one without decorations on ym … [Read more...]
