Fan Expo Canada Recap

Fan Expo Canada was this past weekend and it was a blast! It was super packed every day, I saw some amazing cosplays, and I sold a lot which is always nice. 

My table in Artist Alley:

It was a sunny and hot weekend. A little too humid for my liking so it was ok being inside in air conditioning.

There were a lot of fun displays and photo opportunities.

These are just a few of the cosplay shots I got. Check out my Facebook page for all the photos I took.

We watched the sunset each day as we drove back to Hamilton after the convention.

We didn't buy as much as usual but one of the best things we got over the weekend was a free Pac-Man hat from EB Games.

I also picked up some new Pop! Vinyl figures to add to my collection.

My favourite thing about the show was all the Harry Potter love there. With so many Harry Potter guests, there were a ton of people walking around in Hogwarts uniforms, people with Time Turners around their neck, and Harry Potter-inspired t-shirts were everywhere. It made me want to rush home to watch all the movies, which I might do over the next couple of weeks. 

Also, the show's organization improved this year. It was easier getting back and forth from the North and South buildings and the floorplan was easy to follow. They seem to be making the most of the space but they're not crowding tables in everywhere. I enjoyed that. 

It's bittersweet for Fan Expo to be over. I don't have a huge show to stress over, but comic convention season is over for me until 2016.

  1. That Pac-Man Hat looks amazing! And I love the Hocus Pocus cosplay group, they look so good. Sounds like you had a lot of fun :)

  2. Ah! This looks like so much fun! I'd love to go to another Fan Expo, maybe in a year or two.

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…
