February Photo A Day Challenge - Week 1

It's been a very fast week for me. I have a feeling February is going to fly, especially with how quickly my calendar is filling up!

I've been doing the February Photo A Day challenge. So far I'm really enjoying it because I'm trying to expand my thinking and creativity and not just going for the obvious.

Anyways here are the photos from week one:

Day 1 - Your View Today

I had the day off so I was sewing all day. I had the kitties keeping me company.

I have my Nan's handwriting tattooed on both wrists.

Day 4 - A Stranger

Not the model, but the blonde hair. I was blonde for 25 years. It feels weird looking at photos of me with blonde hair. I'm so used to the red now.

Day 5 - 10 a.m.
Day 5 - 10am
The one day I slept in later than normal. I'm usually dressed by this time. The hubby was on nights so I quietly crawled out of bed and snuggled with the kitties on the couch before moving.

Day 6 - Dinner

I had dinner at a friend's which included fish and shrimp... yum!

I hadn't played my DS in a while but I got in a solid hour of gaming today!

  1. I love ALL your photos. The handwritten tattoo is beautiful. The Your View Today photo makes me wish I had more windows in my living room...I'm glad I can finally participate in the challenge. I was so disappointed when I missed out on the window for January!

    1. Aww thanks! Our living room has floor to ceiling windows along the entire wall! It's great for light but it's awkward for furniture arrangement.

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 …

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 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…
