Mail Day

I have been receiving the best things in the mail lately! Every time I receive a post office slip for me to go pick up a package I pretty much skip across the street (yes, my post office is that close) to get my surprise.

I received an amazing package from Darling Stewie with the cutest TMNT stationary and some sweet stickers... I cannot get over how cute her designs are. 
Awesome mail day!! #DarlingStewie #iggppc

And then completely out of the blue I received an Easter package filled with candy and chocolate from Kristy! I was in shock and also drooling while I opened it up. She seriously spoiled me! I would have felt extremely guilty opening this since I hadn't sent her a package recently... but I have a bunch of stuff purchased and set aside for her. I just don't feel it's finished though.
Today was such a great mail day! @indiegirlkristy spoiled me! #iggppc

And then Arielle (@ToastyTreat) sent me this awesome perler bead Lumpy Space Princess and a letter that written as if LSP wrote it... I laughed out loud while reading the entire letter. This was such a lovely package!
LSP!!! The most amazing letter and gift from @ToastyTreat #IGGPPC

I've been searching stores for some cute package add-ons and I came across the sticker jackpot at my nearby dollar shop.
Picked up some things for packages going out! #iggppc #candy #stickers

I'm so excited to finish putting together some of my packages to get them sent out. It's made mail so exciting!!

  1. I LOVE seeing what people receive and send in the mail, especially when it is all as cute as this!

  2. What fantastic packages! I just snort laughed at writing that, because in the UK (not sure about Canada) "package" in slang for, erm, boy parts.... All your goodies are much prettier than boy parts though :p

    I'm really jealous you got sent Peeps. We don't have those over here (although I think they have gelatine in so I couldn't eat them anyway, sadly). xxx

    1. Haha... yes, we sometimes refer to boy parts as 'packages' here too. I tend to use the word 'bits'. Boy bits and lady bits.

      Peeps are delicious but they do have gelatine in them :(

  3. What lovely bits you've got there!

    The last thing to come through the mail to me was a phone bill and a bank statement. Splendid!

    Thanks for sharing these little pleasures.

    Take care! Xx

  4. I can't wait to be paired up with my pen pal so I can start gathering stuff!

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…
