November 3, 2008 Fashionista

In the spirit of random posts (see the one below) – I had to also add this!

At Adam & Erin’s wedding their bridesmaid Holly had designed and created some super cool purses and the shawl she wore outside. I loved the purses (the bride and some of the gals were using them) and want one of the shawls… and had to share her talent with the world….

Isn’t this shawl/wrap thing amazing?

And here are three of her purse creations…

If I remember right this one was leather – really soft!

Anyhow – just came across these photos again and thought I’d share!

November 3, 2008 Krista at Work

Recently as I looked through wedding photos from a recent wedding – I came across a photo Beth snapped of me as I set up a photo.
I started an album in Facebook called “KJ @ Work” where I post a photo of me doing my thing that someone snaps and I have found in my archives… and then the photo I was taking at the time. People seem to be enjoying this “behind the scenes” look… so I thought I’d share with my blog readers too!

Oliver – the groom here – is a giant. Okay, not a giant… but very tall. So I stood on this abandoned van we found to get this angle of Oliver with his groomsmen.

Also at Oliver the Giant’s wedding – here I am saying to t he wedding party to look like they’re having fun as they decorate the car all up! Although – if you look at the pic it looks more like I’m yelling at Tali – the bridesmaid here.

We did a 5minute photo shoot outside as the sun was setting and it was getting cold!!

Sometimes, I’ll back up after I’m done a photo – and am surprise to find there is a person right practically on my shoulder! ha ha! Here is a groomsmen who could get the little guy in the next photo to laugh and smile so easily!

November 1, 2008 Happy Halloween!

Halloween is such a great holiday! I love seeing whole communities coming together to celebrate… candy! Seriously, to think everyone gives up one whole evening to help kids have a blast for no real reason is so cool!

Our girls had a blast both at school celebrations and tearing around our neighbourhood tonight. Here’s a few quick pics!

Madi’s grade one class where Eden and I spent the afternoon. She too has a super amazing teacher. I love her teacher because she creates a fun, relaxed atmosphere for the kids to learn – but still has control of the class. She’s always laughing and the kids all adore her!

This is the only photo I got of the parade – I held teh door for a good part of it and then when I got outside caught Eden as she tried to make a break for the playground – ha ha. But I love this one of the sisters!

November 1, 2008 Giving Back

At Edison we are big believers in giving back since we have been so blessed. So I get super excited when I read of others finding ways to make a difference in the world – this is something we’re so passionate about here!

Tonight while blog hopping I read on David Jay’s blog (David Jay is a super talented photographer and business person I’ve followed for years – love him!) about his friend who shares a really powerful video on his blog… and is giving $10 to the cause for everyone who comments.

So – what are you waiting for? Go make a difference today…. watch the video (you’ll be glad you did), leave a comment, change the world.
