Toronto ComiCon

This past weekend was Toronto ComiCon. I had a table in Artist Alley and I was so excited for this show. It was the first show of the year for me and I've been sewing like mad for it. Well, the weekend didn't disappoint. The show stayed pretty busy and steady all day both Saturday and Sunday. I met some wonderful people and I was happy to sell some of my items to people who loved what I made. It's such a gratifying feeling when people compliment something that you've put time and love into. I heard 'ahhh Bubbles!' so many times. Girls and guys were spotting my Powerpuff Girls pillow from across the aisle and would run over. Thiings like that make me so happy!

I also sold quite a few cat toys over the weekend. I only came home with a handful. But the sweetest thing was a customer who bought a toy on Saturday came by my table again on Sunday to tell me her cat went crazy for the toy and then proceeded to hug it for 2 hours.... oh how kitties melt my heart.

I wasn't able to get away from my table too much this weekend so there's not as many pictures of the cosplay as I would have liked. Oh well, I still have 2 more conventions this year to go to.

My favourite thing from the weekend? I won a free Mockingjay pin from the Alliance booth. I had to answer a trivia question but that was a breeze! I'm so excited to wear this!

This show was such a great start to the convention season. I'm excited for Wizard World next month. I have 4 weeks to restock... yikes! It'll be another busy and quick month!

Have a good night!

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…
