Sickness, Aliens and short hair?

This week has been pretty crappy here... I've developed a full blow cold since the con last weekend. I actually slept through the entire night last night which is the first time I have all week. I ended up napping with the kitties late morning today as well. I'm hoping a day of relaxing will get me feeling back to normal again.

Outside of work, I've been busy with other things this week. I'm officially confirmed for two more comic conventions this year:
* Art-O-Con - May 5
* ConBravo! - July 26-28

I've already started to feel a little overwhelmed by the amount of shows I'm doing this year so I need to get my butt in gear and start sewing!!

Me and Adam had a date night last night which was very needed. We went to the movies to use one of our movie coupons from Christmas. We saw Dark Skies. I didn't realize the movie was about sci-fi/alien stuff. The trailer freaked me out and I just assumed it was a horror movie but Adam assumed it was about aliens which is why he was interested in seeing it. Either way, it was a good movie. I love Keri Russell so I'm a bit biased but the movie did its job and creeped the hell out of me.

The rest of March is looking to be quite busy for me. We have Easter dinners to attend, I have a One of a Kind show date, a game night planned, and I'm hoping to squeeze in a hair cut.

I've been growing my hair for a solid 2 years now... but I'm tempted to go a bit shorter again. Maybe a long bob? I don't know. I love some of the photos I've found, but I have no idea if I'll regret cutting my hair that much.

Anyways, I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I'm heading to my parents' tonight for some visiting and board games. I'll be spending most of tomorrow prepping some sewing projects until my shift at work!

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…
