Wizard World Toronto

This past weekend was Wizard World Toronto. It was a really great weekend! The convention was definitely busier this year than last year. I really liked the floor set-up this year as well. It was nice that Artist Alley took over such a large part of the floor, from one side of the room to the other and to get to the celebrities you had to walk through Artist Alley.

It was so nice meeting new people and also meeting some Twitter 'friends'. It was definitely a rewarding show for me. I received some great feedback on my products and once again I was told by a few people, who bought cat toys from me on Saturday, that their cats loved my kitty kickers! I love making kitties happy all over Southern Ontario! And once I post them on Etsy, I can make kitties all over the world happy!

It was such a fun weekend and it always makes going back to work on Monday such a disappointment. It sucks coming back to reality. Now, I have Fan Expo to prepare for. It's such a huge event and it's 4 days! I'm very thankful I have a lot of time to work on inventory for that convention.

I was pretty happy to have Adam come to the convention with me all weekend. We spent most of our time discussing which comics to pick up next and our game plan for Free Comic Book Day. Oh, and what Pop Vinyl figures he needs to buy me!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

    1. Thank you! Comic Conventions are my favourite shows to do since I'm interested in a lot of things there. I love the costumes and seeing talented artists and picking up new toys.

  3. Yay, glad it went good! Your table looks great (so organized and professional!) and I LOVE the ghostbusters pillows -I didn't know you did throw pillows too!

    1. I make a few throw pillows for each show usually. I ended up selling one of the Ghostbuster pillows to a young boy to use in the car. He was pretty adorable. And thank you for the sweet comments!

    2. Do you have any Ghostbuster pillowcases? (I'd love to surprise my husband with one!)

    3. I did have 2 Ghostbuster pillowcases at this show but they sold. I know I have more Ghostbuster fabric though so I can definitely make another pillowcase or two!

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…
