Bruno’s Helmet

I've never been so worried about messing up a project as I was with this one. But guess what? It turned out okay! So honored to do this custom painting for my friend and her son Bruno. Big brother and Dad also got in on the design which makes this extra special. With just one night to… Continue reading Bruno’s Helmet

​Rucksacks and Back Naps!

Rucksacks and back naps! As some of you know I've gotten hooked into an amazing local babywearing community since the middle of my pregnancy. Not only are these folks super supportive and fast becoming friends but I am learning so much about wrapping, carrying, and all the benefits that go with. Right now I'm focused on learning how to back carry. Today I tried a new finish and for the last two days simply having Trent on my back has equalled pretty decent naps. My kid, the sleepless wonder for the first three and a half to four months (night or day), is napping.

Nursery Progress

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
