Aside from my full time job and my weekend blogging adventures, I've been busy doing early preparations for my wedding next year. The moment I knew who my entourage was, I immediately thought of contacting this talented Winnipeg artist, Kristen Aleida, to do some art commissions for my bridesmaids. One of the things she does exceptionally well are her floral wreath watercolor paintings so I asked her to make some customized ones as you can see in this post. It was such a pleasure to work and meet her so I'm sure it won't be the last. For more of her lovely work, you should follow her IG account -- Kristen Aleida Art.
