What I'm Loving Now

Life has been full of audio books and TV shows since I'm back to sewing like crazy for Fan Expo. I have a giant audio book list to get through and I'm excited to get to each book.

Anna and the French Kiss

I've heard of the book, Anna and the French Kiss. a lot. But the cover of the book and the synopsis didn't grab me. However, after hearing about it for the millionth time and about the following books in the series I decided to give it a try. I was looking for some fun, easy, modern books for the Summer anyways. Well, I loved the book. It's a really cute and basic story. The characters and setting are great though. I enjoyed it right from the beginning of the audio book. I'm very excited to move onto the next book, Lola and the Boy Next Door.


Being Erica

You know I'm busy filling cat toys and trimming pouches when I fly through two seasons of Being Erica in a couple of weeks. I finally watched season two and three and I'm itching for season four - the final season. But of course I don't own it. Ahh! I really like this show. I used to catch the odd episode when it aired on television and a friend recommended it to me. It's a Canadian show and takes place in Toronto, Ontario so it's fun to watch since I recognize a lot of places. There's also love, friendship, and time travel! It's so good.


I'm now re-watching all of the seasons of The Big Bang Theory and let me tell you, it will not take me long to get through them all with how much time I'm spending with my sewing projects.

I hope you're having a great weekend! I'm off to the craft room.

  2. Don't know about you, but I find sewing always seem to go better when there's something good to listen to at the same time. Even "bad" TV programmes can seem good when one isn't really concentrating on them! Have fun - and success from your current projects and the Show

  3. I listen a light audiobooks when doing something as simple as packing orders. But serious books require concentration, you need to listen carefully to understand the meaning. So it is with video. But I'm glad that you have found something suitable for you.

  5. Lola and the Boy Next Door is one of my favourite reads from the last year or so. I fell head-over-heels for Cricket (the boy in the title) from the minute he was introduced. He's still top of my "Men I Want To Marry" list :p xxx

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…
