Blog Inspiration

How's your day going? It's cold and rainy here which makes me not want to move off this couch. But I have to be at work for 5 p.m. so eventually I will have to move.

I've been catching up on blogs today and I guess because of my nesting mood I'm loving all the family-related posts from some of my favourite bloggers. Hearing about family outings and holiday plans, and seeing beautiful photos is giving me such a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. I know, my soft, marshmallowy insides are showing through right now. I find these ladies incredibly inspiring. They're talented and creative, they make and share amazing projects and have their own businesses, and they have such strong family values. They definitely provide me with a lot of motivation to where I want to be in a couple of years.

I've been reading Skunkboy Creatures' blog for years and I adore her adorable family. Katie's handmade creatures, hair tutorials, and photos of family outings make her blog one of my favourites. This recent post especially made me excited to have a family one day.


Another Red Velvet Girl's blog I love reading is Rachel's, Smile and Wave. The activities she does with her children and the crafty projects she posts are amazing! I aspire to be at least as half as creative as she is! Her recent posts have been so sweet and I fell in love with photos from a wedding and a family bonfire.


I love reading about Holly's life on Create Loves. She has adorable kids and another one on the way! Her maternity style is so cute and I love reading her recipes. I hope that one day when kids are in my near future I will be as cute as she is!


Well, I must be off to make dinner before heading into work.

Have a great day!

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…
