Hello readers! When we announced The Language of Flowers as April’s book, we had instant feedback! Our Instagram post was full of comments with high praise for it, so we’re hoping you’ve been reading along with us, whether it’s for the first time or the second. How are you liking it? Parts of this book are not easy to read, as Victoria pushes everything good away from her again and again. Her communication is through flowers though, and it’s from that language that she gains knowledge and ultimately, confidence in herself as a mother and hope for a future with the people she loves. Yes, loves! By the end, Victoria has learned to let love into her life. Here are a few discussion questions and reading suggestions. If you have a copy of the book with the author’s other discussion questions, read those too! They’re fabulous! Our amazing artwork this month was illustrated by the incredible Lisa Grue! Stay tuned for an interview with her in the next week.

St. Patrick’s Day is swiftly approaching and we want to make sure you’re prepared to receive all the kisses! And none of the pinches of course. Typical protocol for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day tends to be wearing green and drinking. We do things a bit different around here at the Lars Studio. So instead, we’re wearing Printable Shamrock Crowns and floral dresses and eating lucky charms for all three meals. Who’s with us?! We’re also honoring our love of rainbows, of course. So make sure to wear your green on St. Patrick’s Day with Printable Shamrock Crowns for you and all your friends! You’ll be sure to find some gold.

Sometimes the best gift is just a night out on the town! Putting work stress, home duties, and daily chores on hold for a night can often be exactly what the doctor ordered. It’s also really hard to do. Whether you’re thinking of your friend with 3 busy kids, your sister who works 10 hour days, or a pal that just needs a little break from the rollercoaster of life, everyone needs a night out!
We have teamed up with Uber to put together the perfect gift for a night out. Start with a cute clutch. Nothing too fancy, just a fun accessory to brighten up an outfit. Then fill it with an Uber gift card to eliminate any stress of driving, traffic, or parking. Send her to the mall, the movies, the salon, wherever her heart desires! Sunglasses are a purse essential. We created printable Valentine Sunglasses with a fun message! Slip one into the clutch with a sweet handwritten note on the back. Finish the clutch with a new lipstick, her favorite treats and she’s good to go! An easy and fun gift that’s customizable for anyone! Because who doesn’t want to be chauffeured around for a night out? Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day is the perfect reminder to show some love to those you care about. Of course, we should always express our gratitude and care for those around us, but a special occasion is a welcome reminder! For those dear ones that live in a neighboring state, on opposite coasts, or even across the world, it can be a bit tricky to express your appreciation. But we’re creatures of habit here at Lars and sometimes nothing beats a fresh bouquet of flowers. Paired with a personalized note, it’s hard to get more thoughtful!
For your Far Away Valentine
After living in Denmark for a while, I have a lot of good friends that live in Europe that I try to stay in touch with as best I can. But there’s always room for improvement!
