What I'm Loving Now

Honestly, life has been mainly work and sewing for me lately. The couple of weeks leading up to Fan Expo are always a blur of fabric scraps, thread, sore hands, and getting through my shifts at work thanks to caffeine. It's during this time that I long for September, when I can slow down a bit on sewing, snuggle up on the couch to watch shows starting up for the fall season, and spend some evenings relaxing.


The idea of fall is so incredibly appealing right now - the cool weather, layered clothing, pretty coloured leaves, pumpkins, bonfires. We've sat around so many bonfires this summer which is one of my favourite things but we have plans for some fall bonfires too. Afternoons and early evenings, layered in clothes, and using the fire to keep us warm (and the mosquitoes will be gone too!). I can't wait!


A friend introduced me to something wonderful last month - Dutch sprinkles. They are incredibly tasty and there's a wide range of flavours. I've tried dark chocolate and a fruity one, and both are so good. Now what you do with these sprinkles is add it to bread or toast. You put some butter on your bread and add your sprinkles. It turns your basic bread into a delicious slice of dessert. And it's perfectly acceptable to eat for breakfast! Seriously, find some Dutch sprinkles and try this out. I can't stop eating them.

What are you into this month?

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…
