Menu template

My latest project for Etsy weddings is up now! I illustrated a menu template that you can print off for your wedding or any occasion really. There are a number of color options so check out the page to print off the color of your choice (see the right column here).
It’s so easy! You just need: x-acto, cutting board, ruler, tape if needed, template (download here)
Just cut around the template and make a little incision on each side of the template as indicated above. The simply fold it on the black line and insert into the slits.

Flower overload

Guys. I thought I loved flowers. And then I made 132 of them and now I’m not so sure anymore. Mind you, that’s cutting, shaping, handpainting petals and leaves and stems and…everything! My deadline was last Monday, then Wednesday, then Friday, then Saturday, and then about 41 minutes ago, I finished. And you know what I want to do now? Get a whole new wardrobe. Wardrobe fairy…where are you?

These real dahlias, above, were a gift from Traveling Mama, and I just cannot get enough. They remind me that I really do love what I do. Thank you!

So now that that craziness is done (for now, 2 more installments of the same thing!), I can focus on some much needed blog time. I’m kicking it into gear by FINALLY focusing on a blog makeover for Lars. Hallelujah! But in all honesty, it’s me who could really use the makeover. Can we say highlights? Definitely not showing you a picture here (thought there’s a peek on Instagram).

HAPPY MONDAY!!!!!

The ultimate care package with free PDF

I recently made a care package for my brother-in-law who is living in America for a couple of years and it was featured on Hello Bee yesterday. I call it, The Ultimate. I mean, who doesn’t love a good care package?! Especially when the items are mini-sized. It’s too cute for its own good. 
Materials: suitcase, acrylic paint, angled paintbrush, scissors, care package goodies, masking tape
Step 1: Start by creating the air mail border on the box. I free-styled it with an angled paintbrush so that all you need is one stroke (like applying nail polish!). I started with the white and measured it every .5″ around.
Step 2: I added another coat of white paint.
Step 3: Now go in and add the blue on top to every other white strip. To get a super clean air mail effect, use the masking tape to create the lines and then peel them off.
Step 4: Add another coat of blue paint.
Step 5: Add in the care package goodies. I bought mini sized candy from Haribo, bouncy balls, a Rubiks cube keychain, a little notebook, a small package of potato chips, and licorice (the Danes LOVE licorice).
Step 6: Cut out the air mail label (free PDF here) and apply with tape to the top of the box.
Step 7: Add on some cute stamps and send it on its way. I checked with the Danish Post to see if it was ok to send and they said it was, so hopefully it is where you are too.

Wouldn’t your day be made if you received one of these?! Now, go make someone’s day!
