Going on the Today Show!

On a tip from Melanie from You Are My Fave, I entered the Kentucky Derby Hat contest at The Today Show. Well, I was notified today that I’m one of three finalists. Ha! They’re flying me out to NYC on Wednesday and I think I’m going to be on the Thursday show. I don’t really know how they select the winner, but if it’s by the audience vote, will you vote for me? I don’t even know what you win if you’re selected the winner, but in my dreams I win enough money to fill a swimming pool of gold like Uncle McDuck.

I’m going to stick around NYC for a few days and then head on down to DC for a few days too. East Coast, I love you. Let’s be friends! Would there be any interest in some paper flower workshops in DC or NYC? If so, let me know and I’ll get something going.

EDITED: I am teaching a workshop on Thursday, May 2nd at Kollabora in Soho.

Oh, and this is the hat that I entered. A huge paper flower hat. Because, you know, I like flowers and big things.

EDITED AGAIN: Turns out, the rose is the official flower of the Kentucky Derby! The winning horse each year is adorned with a garland made up of 400 red roses and now winners have been known to dip flowers in silver to preserve them. I feel like this is sign.

EDITED AGAIN AGAIN: My segment will be on tomorrow at 9:15 or 10:15 depending on where you are in the states. Just DVR it. I’ll only be asked one question by Al Roker. Bring it!

Thank you Melanie!

Make a homemade card for the wedding couple

Smell the roses on Valentine’s day

I was honored to be asked to make some gift toppers for Terrain for the holiday season and I decided to keep the flower momentum going for Valentine’s day. I handcrafted some roses in 5 colors–off-white, lavendar, yellow, light pink, grey–and topped them off with some handpainted details on the leaf and bloom. They’re perfect to top a gift or give as a single flower to your love–romantic or platonic.

Order them today on the The House That Lars Built Etsy shop. Choose from Pink, purple, off-white, grey, yellow.
