Etsy Crush

At Wizard World Toronto last weekend, Adam informed me I had to go check out a table in Artist Alley. He had snapped a quick picture of the table on his phone to show me why.... My Little Pony perler bead creations! I quickly headed to the table to see them. So I've seen perler bead art before but the detail that was put into these pieces was amazing! And I couldn't get over all the ponies! I'm actually a little disappointed I didn't buy myself one at the show. But once I grabbed the business card and saw there was an Etsy shop listed, I thought using some of my paypal money to buy myself something might be a better option for me.

Amy Williams, who is behind Cheshire Grynne, is the creator of these amazing perler bead pieces! At the show there were both keychains and magnets available and both options are available in her Etsy shop as well.




There are no My Little Pony items in her shop yet but once they are, I need to get my hands on one... or all of them!

Check our her Etsy shop and Facebook page for more of her amazing art!

  1. How cool, I love the detail in those creations and the way that someone has the patience and the craft to create something so beautiful and unique as this. Thank you so much for sharing.
    I have a friend on Etsy who also creates with beads and am amazed at her work. You are more than welcome to check her out if you wish:

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…
