My Life in Photos

Umm I seriously don't know where November went. It was a great month filled with prepping for Christmas, and other fun adventures.

Let's start the November pictures off with our Jack-O-Lantern from Halloween... He got a little soggy on our balcony and turned into an old man:Old Pumpkin

Snow showed up:
I woke up to some snow this morning. #snow #northernontario
Hello Winter! #snow #northernontario
My view after leaving work today. #winter #snow #nofilter #northernontario

Target opened and I bought so many Christmas items:
Getting ready for Christmas! I love this fox so much!! And the Gingerbread Oreos are yummy!! #targetcanada #gingerbreadeverything

I've been stocking up on gingerbread things (see previous picture too):During my Christmas shopping this morning I found Gingerbread M&Ms and I bought a gingerbread house too! Now it's time for a Christmas movie to end my day ^_^ #christmas #gingerbreadeverything

I reorganized my craft room and sewed up a bunch of pouches: Craft room makeover! It feels so good to have everything cleaned and organized! #crafts
Finished pouches! They just need to be photographed and then they'll get added to my Etsy shop!

We went to Hamilton for a weekend where we hit up Kool Stuff and went to a wedding: Today's adventure: Kool Stuff Toys #toygeek
Off to the wedding I go. #doinganemma

The photo booth was so much fun at the wedding: Saturday night adventures: Photobooth at my cousin's awesome wedding.

I mailed away SO many Etsy orders this past month!! And a few IGGPPC packages:Etsy orders and #iggppc street team packs are heading out today! Two orders are headed to France and Australia. I'd like to ship myself with them!

I bought stamps for the Holiday Card Swap and they're so adorable:I bought books of Canadian and American stamps today. They are so cute! I can't wait to mail my cards! #iggppc #christmas

Logan being a handsome boy:It's not often Logan will sit still for a photo. We adopted him almost 4 years ago. He was half price at the adoption centre because he had been there too long and he was black. He's the sweetest little runt <3 #blackcat

A cleaning session:
Seymore and Logan

Did you enjoy November? It's exciting that tomorrow is December and there's only 25 days until Christmas (ahhhh!). I have baking plans and a date with a Christmas movie and a stack of holiday cards this week.

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…
