A Message to my Subscribers!

parka

Happy New Years eve everybody! As some of you may have noticed, I have changed my site url from dreamcreate.wordpress.com to www.dreamcreate.ca!

 A year ago when I started this blog I had no idea what it would turn into and the change to self hosted site allows me SO much freedom to make the site better! The layout has changed, and there will be a few more changes as I play with the code, but I only want to make it better for all you awesome people out there!

Everyone who subscribes by email will be automatically carried over to the new site!

To all my lovely wordpress reader subscribers:

You have all given me so much support and love over the last year and I couldn’t be more grateful! Waking up to comments and “likes” makes my mornings significantly better, thank you. As I have moved my blog to self hosted wordpress, it means the wordpress reader is no longer a native function.

If you would like to continue on this journey with me at the new URL you can either
sign up for email notification in the right sidebar
or
In your wordpress reader edit the “blogs I follow” and add my new url http://www.dreamcreate.ca (as seen below.) If needed, find further instructions here.

A big hug to everyone, I hope the transition will go smoothly and I love you all!

R & R

After a week of wedding parties, my wedding, and a sudden bout of the black plague (or something equally as fun,) I escaped for the long weekend to celebrate one of my best friends and soak up the sun. Back to regular programming shortly!

First Day of My Life

A year ago, on a canyon overlooking the ocean, my best friend asked me to marry him. Tomorrow I’ll be awake at 5am, climb into about 30 lbs of clothing and jewlery, and spend the day celebrating my new family! Hopefully I don’t fall on my face!

Here’s to my better half, my biggest supporter, my oasis, I love you. I’m the luckiest girl in the world!

Juste Moi

A few lovely photos of my amazing sister Erica, who is doing her best to keep me de-stressed before my wedding! As excited as I am for the big day, I’m even more excited for the life I get afterwards!

Thanks Erica!!

All Things Good Are Wild And Free

Words can’t describe my sister, how much I admire her spirit, or how stunning she looks in these photos I took.  I won’t even try to translate her magic, but instead leave you with the glow she emits that transcends an iPhone or a computer screen.

See more of Erica here & here.

Pieces of Calgary

I was thinking about starting a new series for my blog based on my travels! Today is the first in the series, Pieces of Calgary features a single visual summation of my visit to the intriguing city. Calgary is vast, expansive, wealthy and feels limitless. The amount of money pulsing through the city is subsequently impressive and unbelievable, it’s no wonder the average age is 25. If there is anywhere to make it big in Canada, Calgary is certainly one of them.

Does anyone like this post?! Hopefully you guys do, because I’m kind of loving the idea of one image that could tell many stories.

Let me know!

Cement Jungle

Here we have more of the lovely Erica who froze her pants off this day, but she is such a trooper! I on the other hand, wore two coats gloves sweat pants and boots, being the photographer is awesome! We found this unexplained cement drain/jungle gym/underground tunnel fragment in a field and definitely took advantage of it! Ikat dress: hand painted by yours truly! See more pictures from that day here and here!

A sweet gift idea

Christmas is over, and I’m so happy to be done with all the craziness. A sense of calm has come over me and I feel invigorated and ready for 2012. Here’s one of the sweetest gifts I’ve ever received. One of my best friends printed a book of my photography and paintings, complete with interesting quotes and an amazing message from her. I was shocked when I opened it, and looked through it with my jaw on the floor! What a great gift right!? To make your own, or for someone you love she used this site.



How is 2012 fitting you guys?
