International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club

I cannot contain my excitement for this new club - International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club. Two amazing ladies (@darlingstewie and @frogmellaink) recently started up this awesome project where they will be matching up geek girls around the world to become pen pals.

Back in high school I was a pro letter writer... I spent many periods during the school day writing out notes and doodling on paper with my Hello Kitty pens and pencils to then slip into my best friend's locker. Once I hit college and started up my first blog (via livejournal), I started connecting with other crafty girls throughout the world and we created swap groups to send candy or craft supplies packages to each other.

It's been a few years since I've been involved in swap groups and this new pen pal group has me beyond excited! Especially since I'll be matched up with someone with similar geeky interests as myself! This project has me inspired to put together packages to send to other online friends I have as well.

Now I need to find some more fun stationary! Currently I have a ton of Hello Kitty and cutesy stationary and some items leftover from when Target had The Office stationary in their dollar section. I checked our local mall here and found nothing. So I'm planning on making a visit to the brand new Canadian Target that opened last week to find some more items.

Gathering up my stationary for #IGGPPC but I need some more. Time to hit up Target!

The IGGPPC is currently filled up but they will be opening up a second round at some point in the near future so keep checking the site or their facebook page for more details! And I will be posting my personal experience with my pen pal on here too.

  1. That sounds like so much fun! I had a pen pal for about five years, and it was always exciting to see what would come in the mail.

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…
