Niagara Falls Comic Con Recap

This past weekend was Niagara Falls Comic Con. It was my second time doing the show and I had a ton of fun again this year. I really enjoy the venue, crowd, and staff at this convention. Everything is very organized and I'm just in love with the table space they give you in Artist Alley. Typically at conventions everyone is squished into Artist Alley, there's no back drop, and you have little to no room behind you. But at the Niagara Falls convention, you actually get your own personal area. This makes for a much more comfortable weekend since you have a bit of room to move, breathe, and put your extra stock. 

I found the trend this past weekend was Doctor Who, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Ghostbusters. All of which makes sense seeing as there were guests from each fandom.

On the first day I met a fellow IGGPPC member, Kacie. She was such a sweetheart and I'm so happy we were finally able to meet in real life. And she looked pretty awesome in her cosplay.

The food selection at this convention was actually quite good. They had a stand selling cotton candy, candy apples, and candied nuts. All of which tempted me all weekend. We ended up having poutine for dinner on Friday. 

There was some great cosplay over the weekend. I uploaded a ton of photos over on my Facebook page if you want to see more!

My favourite outfit all weekend was what I wore on Saturday. I'm so in love with this Harry Potter shirt and I finally got to wear my new mid-length cotton skirt. It's absolutely perfect for warm weather and super comfortable. 

My favourite part about this past weekend was meeting Ernie Hudson again. I'm a HUGE fan of Ghostbusters and a few years ago I was able to get a picture with Ernie Hudson at a convention in Toronto. It was a random encounter since he was actually walking around the show floor. This time I headed to his table with my Mom but he was walking away from it. My Mom quickly told him we were huge fans and he hugged us both. Needless to say I was left speechless after this.

It was a fantastic weekend and this convention only makes me more excited for Fan Expo Canada in August. I'm exhausted though so I'll be doing my best to rest and relax as much as I can this week.

I hope you had a great weekend too!

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…
