We have a winner! Meet Western Canada's Next Home Stylist!
The search is over, and what a search it's been! The public has spoken, and we are thrilled to announce Christina Dennis of The DIY Mommy as the winner of Western Canada's Next Home Stylist.
The search for Western Canada's Next Home Stylist alongside Urban Barn and Western Living magazine began this past Februrary, and each entrant was required to submit an audition video showcasing their creativity and personality along with their application. Christina, along with the other tow finalists (Ryan Massel of Calgary, AB and Tijana Popovic of Vancouver, BC) participated in three challenges in order to win a grand prize package valued at $10,000. The public voted for their stylist of choice on Facebook from June to August, and Christina came out as the resounding favourite!
Christina is a devoted mother of three, and has been blogging from her home in Stony Plain, Alberta since 2009. Since then, she has taken the Canadian blogging and social media scene by storm: in 2014, she won the title of "Best in Family or Parenting" Yeggie at the Edmonton New Media Awards and in 2015, she was named on of the "24 Most Awesome Parents on Social Media" by Today's Parent magazine. All about staying on-trend and in fashion without breaking the bank, Christina founded The DIY Mommy as a platform to explore, perfect and share crafts for babies, moms and homes while offering a sneak peek at her (oh-so-stylish) personal life -- not to mention her biggest DIY project ever -- building her custom home with her husband in 2013.
Next stop? The shows! Christina will be appearing on stage at the Calgary Home + Design Show on Saturday, September 19th, the Vancouver Home + Design Show on Friday, October 23rd and the Edmonton Fall Home Show on Sunday, October 25th. Be sure to keep an eye out for Christina's swoon-worthy vignettes at the shows!
