Crafty Updates

Fan Expo Canada is less than a month away and I'm starting to freak out. Don't get me wrong, I already have a ton of stock made up for the show but I never feel like I have enough and I'll sew my butt off until a couple days before the show. It's my pattern.

I bought a bunch of new fabrics for this convention and some family members have been finding some awesome sheets for me to use as fabric too. I'm very excited and happy about these bags.

Now that I've stocked up on hobo bags, I'm moved onto extra large totes (beach bags!) and kitty kickers. I have something to work on every day this month to make sure I have the most stock possible!

So again, bear with me while I stress out and overwork myself this month!

  1. Hey Jen!

    I love your blog and in fact I tagged you in the liebster award! Maybe you have already received it, but if you're interested, here's the link!

    Happy Blogging! :)

  2. I absolutely need to snag some kitty kickers from you at some point!!

    1. After Fan Expo, I'll be adding some to my Etsy. But feel free to email me anytime if you want one in a certain pattern.

  3. Good luck with all the stitching! Hope you've got some ace TV to watch while you're doing it! Xxx

    1. Thanks. I've been catching up on Pretty Little Liars so it's been fantastic!

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…
