In a previous article, I explained the different types of places that you can go to get images for your designs. However, in this article, I am going to share 6 websites that I find to be excellent resources for finding ...

Before our little one was born (in fact, before I was even pregnant), I loved researching all things baby related. Mostly because I like being prepared, but even more-so because I like learning new things. Baby land was something I had no experience with whatsoever, which meant every aspect of babyhood was an uncharted territory, often brimming with cute things... and I found it fascinating.

Even when it came to diapers.

My birth story is a perfect example of “We planned, God laughed”.

As an engineer, I love data and learning about things. I literally spent the entire pregnancy watching every birth vlog on YouTube (twice), taking multiple birthing classes, and researching every little detail about the labor and delivery process in an effort to be as prepared as possible.
