Lumberjanes

A new comic series, Lumberjanes, kept popping up every time I was on the Internet over the last couple of months. The comic follows five teen girls, April, Jo, Mal, Molly, and Ripley, who are at Summer Camp Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for “Hardcore Lady Types.”- and end up on some interesting adventures fighting monsters and uncovering some secrets at the camp. This comic was originally supposed to be a miniseries but ended up getting bumped to an ongoing series.

So I recently picked up the first issue and I fell in love with right away! The first three issues of the series is out and I'm now caught up on it. So why do I love this comic? First of all, I adore the art style. I love how the artwork really does capture the feel of Summer camp and how the clothing and facial expressions on the characters really reflect each of their personalities. And second, it's a group of teenage girls going on adventures together, fighting monsters, strengthening their friendships, and learning about themselves. It's perfect.

So far, I have to say April is my favourite character. Though, it's a close tie between her and Ripley. And April didn't just win my heart because she's a ginger, but because I love her personality. She's ready for a fight every time the girls come across a monster or challenge. This was one of my favourite panels with April... I actually laughed out loud when I read it.


I'm also a fan of the outfit they put her in. I love her layered leggings and shorts look. Plus she wears the cutest hair tie and kicks butt in little black flats. I think her Summer camp wardrobe is just adorable.

If you're looking for a new comic book series to start, I highly recommend Lumberjanes! And I just found out today via Twitter, that BOOM! Studios will be selling Lumberjanes Scout Badges at San Diego Comic Con this year. Oh, how I wish I was going and could get my hands on one.

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…
