If sending out Christmas cards isn’t the funnest thing, then designing your own certainly is! I think I’ve made it pretty clear how much I adore cards. From the envelope to the stamps to the handwritten note, there is nothing sweeter! So when I was given the opportunity to collaborate with Hallmark Signature to create a line of Christmas cards I was tickled pink. This was way better than dancing sugar plum fairies!
Don’t the holidays make you a million times more sentimental and nostalgic? This time of year I love to think back on years past and recall upon sweet memories. Whether they are small moments or big adventures, they each have a special meaning to me, and I never want to forget anything! Nothing preserves a memory better than pictures, and I LOVE looking back on photographs to bring all the memories flooding back. We teamed up photo pros, Artifact Uprising, to preserve some of our favorite moments from 2016! Along with my personal Christmas cards of my family, we created a Lars Team Christmas card, and a photo wall for our studio! I am in love with how they each turned out! Read on →
A few weeks ago we were delighted to have cactus cupcake extraordinaire, Alana Jones-Mann, visit the Lars Studio for our Cactus Coloring book reveal party! She flew in early in the morning and flew out late that same day! Talk about a trooper! Alana was our guest-of-honor at the party, showing us how to make her delicious desert masterpieces step-by-step. It was AMAZING. But, we didn’t want anyone to feel left out, so we created a quick cactus cupcake tutorial video so you too can create these spiky sweets! We collaborated with the super talented Trisha Zemp to make this adorable stop-motion video that will leave you crazy for cacti. You’ll be surprised at how simple the process actually is, so make sure to give it a whirl! We included written instructions as well to help you on your way!
I think about what I’m going to wear for Halloween nearly every single day of the year. Sadly, I’m not joking. BUT, when it comes down to actually carrying out my plans, I’m usually so burned out that I end up doing something quick and easy if I do anything at all. Well, this Halloween season, we’ve teamed up with Bath and Body Works over the next three weeks to create 7 costumes inspired by their large variety of sweet smelling fragrance mists. Today we’re sharing 3 last minute costumes you can make from your craft closets, which is good for all of you who don’t want to put that much time or money into your costumes. Think tissue paper, paper plates, and drinking straws, cardboard, balloons, paint, batting. All cheap and easy yet have so much impact. In fact, I wore the unicorn costume to my first costume of the season and the kids loved it! Also on the list: hippies……and an all pink Marie Antoinette.Learn how to make the costumes and see what we were inspired by. Read on →
This post is made possible by Pier 1. Thanks to the sponsors that allow us to make new and original content.
As you might know by now, I like to craft 😉 but I rarely get a chance to craft for meditation or relaxation because it’s all for work. It’s because I love you guys so much! There are some crafts that I know I’d love to do as I watch TV or just take a breather so I was pumped when Pier 1 wanted to collaborate on a She Shed. I knew exactly how I’d use one and where to use one.
