Toronto ComicCon Recap

The signs of a good comic con for me? Tired, hoarse voice, sore body, headache, and money missing from my cash box (due to purchases). And I have all of those things! They may sound bad, but it's not because it's from the over stimulation. There's so much to look at and so many people to talk to!

This year Toronto ComicCon was much bigger than the previous year. It felt like a mini Fan Expo. Things seemed really organized and luckily I was also pretty organized (finally!) and my table set up was a breeze!

I had Jason (@The_Jedi_Ras) from An Elegant Weapon hanging out at the table with me over the weekend. It was fun and entertaining listening to him pod from the con.

There wasn't much cosplay this weekend but the cosplay that was there was really good! I posted more photos from the convention over at my facebook page. Go take a look if you want to see more of the cosplay!

    1. He is so adorable! Out of the box his head isn't straight on so it always looks like he's tilting his head at me haha.

  3. Your booth looks great! And looks like it was a lot of fun.

    We're only about three hours from Toronto but don't have passports or enhanced drivers licenses so we can't cross the border. My husband says every year how he wants to go.

    1. Wow! You are so close to me! I'm an hour from Toronto and an hour from the border. We're only a couple of hours apart from one another!

  4. Your booth does look great! I've never been to the Toronto ComicCon, but I have been to the Fan Expo. Such a great time :)

    And for this Liebster award thing, I "nominated" your blog because I think it's awesome. Not entirely sure what it's all about, just following the rules I was given.

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…
