30 til 30 + Crafts + DIY + Life + oh happy day / Monday, 11 Jun 2012

Recounting birthdays past 2012 with cupcakes

Happy Monday and in true blogger self-absorbed fashion, happy birthday to me! I’ll be celebrating with my friend Becca, visiting from America, and Paul at the ballet tonight. Did you have an incredible weekend? We made mischief and did a lot of touring of CPH. I have fun stories to tell about it, but FIRST! Remember how I was counting down my 30th birthday with my 30 Crafts in 30 Days project? Well, I soon realized that that was the stupidest idea of all time so I quit. I didn’t mention that I had quit and since no one said anything I thought I could get away with it. It’s my blog and I’ll quit if I want to. Ha! But really, I had so many projects anyway that I didn’t need a gimmick to keep me going. Needless to say, I do have some crafts coming up so my self esteem is not super hurt.

As for this cupcake stand, I made this as my final DIY for Oh Happy Day. I had such a great time crafting away for Jordan this past year (see all my projects here), but I need to focus more on Lars and some new exciting projects coming up. For full instructions on this cupcake stand including a template  go here.

Sommerkoncert

SO, finding an appropriate image for a musical concert is tough! Why are musical instrument graphics so cheesy? This one is fantastic. Anywhoo, I was invited to perform my cello at a summer concert next Sunday, June 17th. It’s an evening of music from the Romantic era including works by Franck, Debussy, Faure with a few other singers and pianists. If you’re here in Copenhagen please come! It’ll be held at Jesus Kristi Kirke af Sidste Dages Hellige on Nitivej 8, 2000 Frederiksberg. For more info lookie here.

This week

This week was…grey. Surprise! Summer in Denmark is a hit or miss, but a good friend of mine is here visiting so I’m high on life. We had an in-studio day this week where we made some decisions about what we’re going to do to our place and then took everything down to start fresh, hence “window in progress”. I’m SO stoked!

This week:
Began a new DIY series on design*sponge starting with this copper tubing geometric table
the Embellished Bride on Brooklyn Bride
Here’s an update on the renovation of our house
more Iceland pics here and here
This Girl loves a blue accent

Hope there’s sun where you are because there sure ain’t here!

Glacier Lagoon Part Deux

Remember when we went to the Glacier Lagoon? Well, right after we boated through the glaciers we hopped across this bridge
and traversed the black sands
then came across the beach. 
But this is no normal beach. This is an ice block beach where instead of throwing a frisbee around…
…you throw chunks of ice.
…and rest on an ice berg
and find true love written in nature (see it?)

The End. Only a couple more Iceland sessions I promise!
