Dahlya and Pablo, Caricature Chalk Drawing

The two photos above taken with my iPhone of the work in progress
Recently I had the pleasure to work with Dahlya and Pablo, a stylish and modern couple who were looking for an artist to create a Caricature Chalk Mural for their Wedding Reception at Q-Haute Cuisine. Credit to my friend Luba, of Sketch, Calgary Art Supplies and Art Framing, for the referral! 

Their wedding was on Saturday, August 11th, 2012.  At our first meeting, we met at the restaurant and it was my first time seeing the space we were working with. I got to see photos of their invitations and learned about them and their wedding plans! I snapped a few photos of the couple, and worked from those as reference for their faces. After our consultation, we corresponded via email on sketches to get to the final product.

White Dress Photography did an amazing job capturing their big day. View the gallery HERE.  A truly beautiful, intimate and classic wedding.

Q Haute Stampede Chalk Drawing

Hello Friends! Sorry I have not posted much recently, I have been living life! Truly!

This past spring the boyfriend and I both got bicycles! Love going through Fish Creek Park. So much wildlife out there, and it's really peaceful and great exercise. My favourite part of Fish Creek is the wildlife. From interesting birds, to the beaver dam that we discovered, counting three beavers swimming, chewing or just chillin' by the still body of water. Also plenty of deer, duck, and on occasion even skunk, partridge other unknown creatures.

But also this summer, I got my motorcycle license and bought a Kawasaki Ninja 250R whoo!! So spending most of my free time on two wheels, while working full-time at the Motorcycle shop and working on Jewelry in my barely there free time. Really there is none, because I'm eating or sleeping in between all these activities. Trying of focus on taking care of myself, an overall sense of health and wellness are my goals.

So with this post, I wanted to show off the Chalk drawing Kyle and I did at Q Haute Cuisine back in June, with a Stampede theme. For those who aren't from Calgary, The Calgary Stampede is a week long Western festival that takes over the city!  Suddenly everyone wears a cowboy hat, and tourists think we are all cow-folk who drink and party a lot. :p 2012 is extra special for the Stampede, as it's celebrating it's centennial year, one hundred years Stampeding!

Q Haute Cuisine is a Contemporary French Fine Dining Restaurant here in Calgary, located right next to the new Calgary Peace Bridge. Their address is: 100 La Caille place S.W Calgary, Alberta.

Modern Wedding Blog Featured my Custon Name Wine Charms!

Exciting! I recently randomly found myself featured on the Modern Wedding Blog, The blog for Modern Wedding Magazine. The blog post was from back in November! I did get busier in November, but I thought it was likely because Christmas was approaching. Perhaps it was thanks to this recognition. Thank you Modern Wedding!

Pink Meow!

This is probably my proudest 50% off Post Christmas Sale purchase. From Walmart too! Boyfriend said I could put it up for Valentines day!

Really tacky or really cool??? I'm still not sure. I wasn't very fun to assemble though, each section was apart and glitter everywhere. Here's what she looked like pre-rozzie lovin'.....

However now comes the best part... figuring out where in the basement to store this thing.

Loved our Valentines dinner... Chinese take out for two. :)

Tree Pendant Necklace

Tree Pendant Necklace, Sterling Silver, Swarovski Crystal, Pearl (32" length chain)

One of my friends requested a necklace like this, and I presented it to her on Christmas! She loved it and I hope you guys do too. It's the first time trying this style of design. I am really happy with how it turned out, but I am not sure at this time if I will add it to my Etsy Store as a regular item. What do you think? It was a lot of intricate work, and cost quite a bit for the high quality material (sterling silver).

Glimpse of Christmas

Glimpse of Christmas at the Boyfriends house. All his family's presents, they really, really enjoy gifting a lot to each other. Most of the big boxes were for his Dad actually. T

Had a nice cozy Christmas dinner with my Mom and Brother
:) Mom's so cute.
