This year The Sassy Space is looking super…duper…holly…and jolly. I wanted to change up the look and take it up a notch from previous years…Great success. In my head was the idea of the living room bringing the sense out winter, and outdoors, indoors. Bringing a door into the room and using it as a photo set came to me first, then the rest sort of fell in place. Once I decided to deck the tree out with fake tufts of snow..well then, it all turned into magic.
Above the mantle and behind the tree is “wallpaper” from beautiful Target Wrapping Paper. The new curtain behind the tree came to me at my most favorite place in the world, Savers. There was one panel, I needed one. When getting ready for the holiday sessions, TJ and I did a clean sweep of The Sassy Space, cleaning out every closet and place we had stashed things in over the past few years, re-assessed, and re-organized. My big blue nautical star would not fit in a tote to be packed away with the decorations we found. I spray painted it Gold so it could stay. Originally it had been planned for above the mantle, or on my door set on the opposite wall from the tree. Then, laying in bed the night before decorating day…I realized…the star goes on the tree. YES! I have never had an adornment atop The Sassy Space Christmas Tree, I never had anything that I thought to be deserving enough to go up there. This giant star is doing the top some serious justice, shining brightly in all of these holiday session images. Shine bright nautical star, shine bright. The flag banner was made with kraft card stock, a package of pinecone stickers for a scrapbook, red glitter, a package of white snowflake foam stickers (all bought at Michael’s, but at any craft store) and strung together with twine. For the chalkboard sign, I sprayed a piece of Bristol Board art paper with chalkboard paint and put it in a frame, also sprayed with gold sparkle spray paint. The glass for the frame was kept out, but stored behind the board for safe keeping.
We are having to much fun up in here! I will blog more of each room after this weekends round of holiday photo shoots! I even had to add more spots this weekend hadn’t planned to book it at all…. We are having such a most excellent time making serious photo magic in here! <3 <3

The absolutely fabulous curvy woman clothing company, Kiyonna, sent me this fabulous lace dress for our Sleeping Beauty Princess Bride. Beyond either of our control, the delivery company had it’s way with it, and it did not get here in time. But…..a true believer in destiny, I couldn’t imagine this dress on anyone else but the fabulous, curvy, plus model big deal, Katherine Roll….and the styling we went with, the fall colors, most excellent. Thank you so much to my most beautiful, talented Krystalized Designs for the perfect hair and makeup. Later that day we did some GLAM by Sassy Mouth photo’s with Kat, she was in the zone that day.
So thank you so much Kiyonna, I love the dress (aptly named Aurora!) and love you all, it was a pleasure to work with you, send me some more dresses to make magic with soon. I would look fierce in the Emerald Green version of this dress…just saying..lol
