My Life in Photos

August was the month of sewing for me! Preparing for the biggest comic convention of the year took up a lot of time. I ended up with blisters on my fingers from scissors and burns from my iron. The majority of the time I was in my craft room, Logan hung out with me. He always tried to get his furry little body on every piece of fabric I left lying around.

It doesn't matter how small the piece of fabric is. If it's there, he's going to lay on it. #catsofinstagram #blackcat

We finally went wild blueberry picking last month. I'm going to post more about that soon.

We found wild blueberries!!! #northernontario #blueberries #summer

I got bangs! I'm pretty happy with them. I've had them pinned back a few times now because of the heat, but overall I'm managing with them!

Hello bangs! I missed you. #redhead

Just one of the gorgeous skies in August.

What a gorgeous sky tonight! #nofilter #northernontario #sunset

We finally hit up a local ice cream spot for sundaes. Adam was pretty happy that they has lactose free ice cream. Mine is the one with coconut on top and my ice cream was called 'Moose Tracks'.


We made another trip to Moonlight Beach. Gulls were trying to take over the beach but we had a nice lunch and swim that day.

Day 20: Nature - Lunch and swimming at the lake today. #iggppc30d2 #iggppc #summer #northernontario

I missed this guy while in Hamilton for Fan Expo Canada. I came home to him having a cut on his cheek... probably from a fight with Logan. It broke my heart. And I'm still dealing with it because he keeps scratching the scab and ripping some of it off.

I missed this fart. It's so nice to be home with all my boys <3 #catsofinstagram #gingerkitty

Autumn and Halloween stuff is popping up everywhere already! I found pumpkin, ghosts and bats, and Fall leaves sprinkles at the Bulk Barn. We also spent a bit of time at Walmart looking through their Halloween and toy aisle.

Halloween and Autumn leaves sprinkles! The Bulk Barn has lots of Halloween candy already! #autumn #pumpkins #ghosts #bats Fun at Walmart... I seriously want a turtle shell and all the Halloween decorations!! #TMNT #Halloween #starwars

I cannot believe summer is over and it's now September. I start a new job on Wednesday (eek!) and I'm already planning to get a pumpkin spice latte at some point this week. Hello September!

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 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 …

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…
