Christmas Challenge 2011

It’s that time of year again! It’s the holidays and it’s time for my Christmas Challenge. This entire year has gone by in a blink and has been a *little* crazy at times but has been super rewarding and fun too. I have had my busiest fall ever and with having a busy toddler and another baby on the way there seems to never be enough time in each day….. but I’m happy to say with only one more wedding left things are getting all caught up ūüôā

So due my slight craziness I’ve gotten a bit lazy with researching a new Charity for my Christmas Challenge. But last Year’s Coats for Kids and Families went over so well that I’ve decided to make them my group of choice again. Last year I had well over 30 jackets donated as well as new and used gloves, toques and scarves. My entire front closet was taken over and I was pleased they went to people who really needed them.

So this year for every ¬†Coat you bring in for donation I will give you one Custom 8×10 Print of your choice.

Go through your closets (or your families and friends closets!!) to find used  jackets for those in need. By helping someone  you can complete some of your own Christmas Shopping.

Fine Print:

Winter Coats of any size/style will be acceptable. Donations must be dropped off at my home studio before November 28. 2011. If you are out of town please give me a call and we make other arrangements for you to get credit for your donations. There is no limit to the amount prints you can receive- I would love to give away tons of prints if that means less fortunate Edmontonians can stay a little warmer this year. This Challenge is open to all 2011 wedding and lifestyle clients.  Donations can not be used towards previously ordered prints. 

For four years in a row my clients have really came through when presented with my Christmas Challenge. I’m hoping this year is no different. Hundreds of prints have been given away over the years and I can’t wait to start printing more. If you have any questions, you can post them on the Facebook Fan Page or email me at inlove (at)

And if you’re not one of my awesome clients but have extra coats around your home this is your official reminder to drop them off at one of the locations listed on their website (clicky above) ¬†and help someone else this winter season. I know the United Way is ALWAYS in need of children’s jackets especially. Happy Holidays!

And now just a little fall cuteness for fun!
