This blog started out as a mommy blog, with the simple intention of sharing my baby Ally's milestones with family and friends. It used to be called Bead Baby - a nickname given by friends to Beadlady's new baby. I couldn't come up with a clever title when I started this blog.

After giving up my craft to become a full-time mommy, I found myself craving for an outlet for all the pent-up creative energy. I discovered I enjoyed blogging, and I wanted to write about my interests as a new mom.

Saccharine is a blog about life's sweetest pleasures: becoming a mother, enjoying the home, and the sweet little nothings of everyday life.


In an effort to present fun, fresh, and original content, I decided to start writing columns for this blog. It's no longer just a hodgepodge of posts now! There are two weekly columns, and a few non-regular ones. Click on the images below to browse by topic.

Weekly columns
