Christmas 2013

Christmas is one of my favourite times of year. This year it was very busy, but we also had lots of relaxing time. We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas morning at Chelsea’s house, and the rest of the day was spent at Steven’s Auntie and Uncles house. Here is a glimpse of what we got ourselves up to!

Swept // Boutique Bridal Show

At the beginning of the summer I had the privilege of doing hair and makeup for a photo shoot for my friend Erin Walker. She is a wedding photographer in Edmonton that had a dream to put together a bridal show with all of the best florist, planners, hairstylists, and designers. You can see more photos and read about it here. We did these photos so she could use them for all of her advertising on the Swept website and Facebook page.

models: chelsea and edgardo avitia
hair/make up: emma hooft
dresses: bridal debut
styling: kassandra camponi
floral design: janine at fabloomosity

Nursery Progress

We have made some great progress with the nursery over the last few weeks! My friend Leah painted us the most beautiful canvas of a deers head that we put on the wall right by the door.

My good friend Niela gave us this amazing unit to put on our wall that we still need to hang! I can’t wait to find lots of treasures to put in it! So far I have a globe, clock, mason jar, and a candle. Steve found a classic old school skateboard at the antique mall, and my antlers came from my neighbour. On top of the dresser we will put a change pad which will take up most of the space, but for now I just have everything sitting on top of it.

My mom and I went to West Coast Kids and found the most beautiful glider/reclining chair. I am in LOVE! It is the perfect color, and the perfect amount of comfy.

This weekend while I was working at the salon, Steven and my brother-in-law were busy putting a wood wall up in the nursery. A few days earlier we went and got really thin pieces of pine, and three different stain colors. Steven stained them a few days before he put them up on the wall behind the crib.
