Yesturday was Art-O-Con in Burlington and boy, do I feel like it kicked my butt! haha. Seriously though, I had a busy weekend since Saturday was filled with errands (some fun) with Adam and then I worked until midnight Saturday night. So I was tired to begin with yesturday morning. Add in a 10 hour art/craft show, and I'm physically and mentally exhausted!

Art-O-Con was a ton of fun though! First of all, I loved the venue! It was inside a room at the Holiday Inn in Burlington. It was like 5 steps from a door to the parking lot. This made moving my stuff in and out super easy, and no one had a chance to get lost looking for the show.

They had the Doctor Who society, the X-Men of Toronto, the Ontario Ghostbusters, and Toronto Batman there which made for a super entertaining day. I witnessed Toronto Batman facing off a Dalek, had my X-Men shirt admired by Rogue and Gambit, and just met so many awesome people there!

What I wore:

Kitty kisses before I left.

I picked up a sprinkle necklace from Wolf and Squid which I love! My new sprinkle necklace from Wolf and Squid <3

It was such a great show! And now I'm even more pumped for my upcoming comic conventions!

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…
