Click Retreat Caribbean

click retreat caribbean

In January I was invited to teach a photo styling workshop with my good pal, Meta Coleman, aboard Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of The Seas, the largest ship in the world for Click Retreat, a conference for bloggers that focuses on photography and social media in the Caribbean for a week. When I got the email the only words I saw were “January”, “cruise”, “Caribbean” and immediately responded “YES!”. We visited Bahamas, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten.

But, what would make them think I would even like it? I mean, it’s not like the Bahamas had photogenic pink buildings everywhere or anything…

And it’s not like the scenery was very scenic. Bleh.

Seriously, I couldn’t find a single pink building ANYWHERE in the Bahamas! It was so BORING!

It’s not like we had colorful props to work with or delicious fruits to make smoothies with…

New dinnerware collections out today!

Remember the little teaser I gave a few months back about my new dinnerware collections with Twig NY? Well, today’s the day! The online shop is OPEN NOW and you can now purchase the three collections I’ve designed.

I’ve been a big fan of plates and dinnerware since I was a girl. When my family went on road trips I would buy those tacky souvenir plates and hang them on my walls. There’s something about a circular design in ceramic that just gets me. Then during my internship with Celerie Kemble in NYC, she asked me to design a plate for her Tiffany and Co. collaboration and I was over the moon. How did she know about my love affair?! When I moved to Denmark I thought I would pursue it a bit more, which is when I created the line of souvenirs for the royal wedding in plates and mugs. I’ve learned so so much since then and I was so pleased when I was asked to create for Twig.

The first in the collection is Petals. As you are hopefully well aware by now, I love flowers. Like, I LOVE flowers. And I love color (hence, craft the rainbow) and this is the ultimate Craft the Rainbow! Rainbow petals! It’s wild and loud yet so so pretty. It actually looks as if you’re about to devour petals for dinner. It comes in a salad plate, dinner plate, platter, soup bowl, and mug. But I think they would be so so rad as decoration or in a plate collection on a wall. I use the 8″ plate right now as a caddy to hold my keys and stuff. It’s a unique design as it’s totally flat.

The next up is the Scandinavian Florals collection. This is based on my calendar, which I sell in my Etsy shop and I loved transferring it into a series of dinnerware. They’re so delicate yet interesting in their patterns. It comes in a platter, dinner plate, salad plate, cereal bowl, mug, and cup and saucer.

Finally, the Language of Flowers collection. This is based on my Language of Flowers calendar in my shop as well. It comes in a platter, dinner plate, salad plate, dessert plate, salad bowl, cereal bowl, and mug.

What do you think?! Are you into dinnerware? Hopefully you still have some room in your Christmas shopping 🙂 In the coming months I’ll be showing how I style my plates in a few different settings (these were styled by Twig’s creatives).

The Yellow and Orange Chapters

Orange and Yellow

Welcome to yellow and orange week here at Lars. Every week for the next few weeks we are focusing on two adjacent colors of the rainbow in honor of the release of My Life In Color, our new guided journal. Join us as I show you how I’m filling out my own copy. You can see the red/pink chapters here

Yellow just miiiiight be my favorite color. Maybe? It’ consistently the one I choose as a pop whether it’s in a craft project, or a home accent decor. And I’ll very likely be wearing it on any given day. It’s just so refreshing!
