Take a look at the January/February 2011 Canadian Interiors magazine for a couple great shots of some of Edmonton Interior Design industries favorite people! The photos are from the IDA 2010 Christmas Party at TU Gallery in Edmonton- if you remember my article from a little while back. There is a cute little picture of me in there as well with my fellow planners of the event Celeste from Shaw carpet and Laurie from Edgewise design. Any press is good press and Canadian Interiors Magazine is great press…. one step closer to making it in there for a project!

IDA Edmonton First Annual Christmas Party

TU Gallery Edmonton

TU Gallery Edmonton

Christmas Season has started off with a bang this year. As part of the IDA event planning group we have been slaving away for a few months planning our first annual IDA Christmas Party! The event was held last night (November 30th 2010) at TU gallery on 124th street in Edmonton. The food, wine and venue were all amazing but what really made the event was the quantity of Edmontons brightest designers, reps, archtiects and contractors who gathered to celebrate and mingle. The gallery was filled with bright happy faces particularily with all of the great prizes to be won!
