Workout Challenge: Intro

I debated about blogging about this for a while. It's a touchy subject for me, and there's lots of other motivational stories out there already. But, if my story can help inspire even one other person, it's worth adding it to the pile. I've struggled with my weight and self esteem for years. The earliest … Continue reading Workout Challenge: Intro

Keeping Busy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPoUtCsZLqg If anyone is curious, yup, I'm still making these, and they're partly to blame for the lack of posting! Honestly, I'm having such a good time with making them. I have to admit, there's a couple of them that I don't even know if I want to sell because I'm so in love with … Continue reading Keeping Busy

D-I-Y-Not?

I've never been particularly crafty - pencils and paper have always been more my thing. So what possessed me to want to make some fascinators? .... Honestly, I'm not sure! But, during a trip to the nearby dollar store with my grandma, I found myself looking at ribbon and the fake flowers, and I just … Continue reading D-I-Y-Not?

If You Can’t Say Something Nice…

...Don't say anything at all. I'm sure that's a phrase that most people are familiar with in some form or another. I learned it as a child. I'd like to think that it's still something taught to young children. Oddly enough, the people who are the worst for breaking this age old rule aren't children, … Continue reading If You Can’t Say Something Nice…

My last semester ended only four days ago. It's nice to be this fired up about school again. I¬†want to learn again! For those that … Continue reading Excited to Learn Again

The Case for Artist Alley

This is a hard blog for me to write, but here it goes. The Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo 2017 wrapped up yesterday, and I have to be honest; It was not a good year for me. I made the risky choice of putting more of my own artwork forward than I have in previous … Continue reading The Case for Artist Alley

My Biggest Weekend of the Year

No, not next weekend when I turn 25, but this weekend! It's the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, which is not only my home expo, but my favourite one to do. This year marks my fifth time, and I'm so excited. This was me five years ago (BG, Before Greg) at my first expo. I … Continue reading My Biggest Weekend of the Year

‘Twas The Night Before Finals

And instead of studying, I'm watching a video I recently put together of our wedding. It's a timeline of pictures, and all the key songs associated with certain moments. A week and a half ago marked six months that we've been married - not a long time in the grand scheme of forever, but still … Continue reading ‘Twas The Night Before Finals
