Today marks the start of International Babywearing Week. This "week-long opportunity to celebrate, promote, advocate for, and focus media attention on the many benefits of babywearing" will be all over my social media and in my life. Why? Because the babywearing community is my tribe; it is where I talk to other moms, it… Continue reading Babywearing – A Mommy Essential
I've been in Texas for three years this August. My life certainly didn't begin here, but my greatest adventure has. On July 21st 2016 I became a mom. ME. I am a mom. And my little dude is a Texan. This girl from small town Ontario, who didn't even travel out of her zip code… Continue reading My Texas Son
One of my favourite things about this pregnancy has been the slow decoration of the kid's room. Because of getting pregnant only a couple of months after moving into the house, it has been the only room in the house to receive a creative touch... so far. The ability to work on this room slowly, over time and evolve… Continue reading Nursery Progress
I only have a few weeks left until my induction and with work officially over I've been taking advantage of the chance to practice my wrapping with some belly wrapping to help alleviate some pregnancy symptoms.
Not the blog, my actual life. Let's back track a little bit shall we? The last entry was a farewell to my precious Dez.

They lacked personality, they weren't friendly or loyal, they destroyed everything, they were creatures I wanted nothing to do with. That's what I told myself. I had to trick myself into believing these things because a simple snuggle with… Continue reading My Aging Friend.
There I was typing away at my NANOWRIMO story. I was creating characters I liked, taking them on an adventure I enjoyed when it hit me; exhaustion. I laid down for a nap that afternoon and I've been asleep ever since. Okay maybe not literally, I have been getting to work and social obligations… Continue reading My Texas -Mommy- Life
Ever since I was old enough to read (perhaps even before that) I was writing stories. A happy companion to my drawings and paintings, writing let me create characters and situations that explored the worlds I loved to create. Folders upon folders of ideas and sketches and maps and floor plans, accompanied by character… Continue reading NanoWrimo and Me.
I just love when I get the chance to buy handmade goods from independent creators. As an artist myself I appreciate the chance to support freelance artists; this one in particular is a favourite and I highly recommend her stuff. The 'Whipped Soap Frosting' has become a staple in my bathroom since I tried it.… Continue reading Handmade Haul: Luxury Lane Soap
