"someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. they can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. and whatever their reasons you must leave. because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. you never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. there is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. and there is the love that will be ready."

Window Wonderland - Call for Votes for People’s Choice Award

I remember in first year, I signed up for Window Wonderland.  That year, I didn’t win anything.  But I came away with a renewed passion for the fine arts.  I had practically given up on it after only being offered a spot on the waitlist for Fashion Design at Ryerson University.

Currently I’m in my third year at Ryerson University, studying Retail Management.  I won’t lie, it’s difficult.  Sometimes I want to just stop and try my hand at something different.

However, in a way, I’ve persevered.  I’ve done the best I can and finally, for the first time I’ve really done something quite special.

This year, I entered the Window Wonderland competition again.  As a refresher to those who probably don’t know me in person, this is a competition that Ryerson Retail Management students can enter.  A partnership with Downtown Yonge BIA (Toronto, ON), students create window displays for local retailers.  I was assigned the retailer Salon Liberte and two group members.

The specifications for each window display were the following:

  • A maximum budget of $100
  • The window must fit the theme of “Traditional Christmas”
  • How does the window display fit in with the retailer?
  • Level of creativity

With this in mind, my group and I designed a window display, utilizing the two windows our retailer had.

The story behind our window is:

In the right window, Santa is at the salon, getting ready for his big day of gifting and his reindeers are helping him by washing his hair.
On the left side, we see Santa is flying away from the Salon and has left a big gift box filled with Salon Liberte’s signature products.

The window took approximately 20 - 24 hours to create.  Made mainly out of poster paper, we added extravagance with metallic spray paint, Christmas wrapping paper, and incredibly glittery ribbon (I still have some sparkles on my work clothes …).

I’m incredibly proud of what my team and I have accomplished for this competition.  Our efforts paid off - we received the Judges Choice (and main award) for Window Wonderland at the launch of Downtown Yonge BIA’s Winter Magic event, Illuminite.  It was an honour and we were pleasantly surprised by the win.

Currently, there is still the People’s Choice award to be won.  If you’ve read my entire post, and you wish to further support my window display in this competition, please feel free to reblog and/or like this photo in this Facebook link.

I truly appreciate every vote I receive.  This competition means wonders to me as I am in the process of applying for an internship in Summer 2014.  It will bolster my resume and provide me a story I can tell with passion.

Thank you and happy holidays!

Sometimes I take it so personally when I see a relationship that has gone through so much fails. I know it’s not my business but I still get frustrated and sad.

If this is your husband, I have just endured a 2 hour train ride from Philadelphia listening to this loser and his friends brag about their multiple affairs and how their wives are too stupid to catch on. Oh, please reblog the shit out of this…
