Etsy Updates

I've been pretty busy with sewing projects lately. I have a table in Artist Alley at Wizard World Toronto April 14-15 this month. Doing two large conventions in back-to-back months is a little crazy. I had a good amount of restock to make to fill what I sold at Toronto ComiCon in March. I'm feeling good about things though. I've been sewing regularly and I should have even more inventory for Wizard than I did at Toronto ComiCon.

I posted a few tote bags on Etsy the other night. I'm so in love with all 3 of them! I have quite a bit of Powerpuff Girls fabric so I'm sure I'll be making myself a tote bag out of it.

I'm actually pretty excited for my time off after Wizard World. I'm going to update my Etsy shop with ALL my inventory. And it's a lot! I have been slacking for months on updating Etsy. But, considering we might be moving in a few months and I have recently been loading myself up with fabric, I think I need to start selling more online. My current shelving unit for my fabric is full and the fabric now sits in piles on top of it and in front of it. This is not right. I need to start using it up.

I have the day off tomorrow since it's Good Friday. I'll be spending the day having another Bones and One Tree Hill marathon while I sew some more. I can't wait!

  1. How can you sew and watch tv shows at the same time? ;)

    1. I have special powers... no, normally I watch a tv show I've already seen before (Scrubs, Gilmore Girls, Batman) while I use the sewing machine so even if I miss dialogue it's ok. While I trim fabric, turn bags right-side out, or iron, I'll watch 'new' shows since there's no noise to distract me.

  2. I like the special powers answer better lol


  3. Hey Sparklegirl,

    I really, really love these bags, and I can't wait to buy one of them soon. I was a huge ppg fanatic when I was a kid. Fond memories.


    1. Thank you! Once I get some money, I plan on buying the PPG boxset. I so badly want to re-watch it!

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…
