San Diego Comic Con

It's not what you're thinking... no I didn't attend Comic Con this year. I wish I did and I hope to attend in a couple of years. So I've spent a good chunk of my weekend reading SDCC coverage and looking at cosplay pictures.

I found some of the panels pretty funny and interesting (Big Bang Theory's was hilarious!). Reading about the Fables panel was also really interesting since the Fables storyline is so intertwined and full of amazing characters. Reading the SDCC coverage has definitely got me hyped up for Fan Expo Canada.

Some of the coverage that interested me:

- In Fall 2012, Capcom, specifically Street Fighter, will be doing a crossover with Hello Kitty. There will be Street Fighter-themed Hello Kitty merchandise.... I'm not going to lie, as weird as this crossover is I'm pretty excited to see Hello Kitty dressed as Chun Li!

- A new Fables spinoff will be coming out in early 2012 called 'Fairest' - which will tell the stories of the ladies of Fables. Rapunzul in Japan?? Yes, please! I'm excited to get my hands on this.

- Reading about Marvel's new television shows was interesting. I can't say I'm too interested in watching the animated shows, but the live-action shows definitely peak my interest, mainly Mockingbird. They described it as “Alias meets Felicity." You cannot go wrong there.

-Reading about any news surrounding The Avengers was pretty exciting. The concept art and posters released are pretty awesome. I have to admit I completely geeked out when I saw The Avengers trailer after Captain America this weekend. It was so quick and doesn't show much but I loved seeing all of them together!

Hopefully I'll be able to get some work done tomorrow since I've been so caught up reading the coverage.

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
