I’ve been wanting to play with post-its FOREVER and finally got the opportunity last week to make this post-it heart pinata. Confession, they aren’t really post-its. I wanted a wider color palette so I had to make them myself. For the full tutorial, go to Brooklyn Bride.
A HUGE thank you to Amanda Thomsen for taking time out of her day to come take the final shots with our super models, JJ and Cecilie.
I have another project coming with post-its. Are you stoked?!
I saw something like these lollipop balloons ages ago and couldn’t remember where or what they looked like so I made my own version for Hello Bee. I thought they were the perfect pairing for the candy lights I made for Christmas. Can you tell I have a (reluctant) sweet tooth?

Paul and I went on a branch-finding mission on Saturday and he knew just the place. To get to work he rides through a nearby nature preserve that has its share of discarded branches. We struck gold with piles of branches, but also came across the most lovely wildflowers in various shades of purples, yellows, and pinks. I brought them home and assembled them into some simple, wild arrangements including some luscious sweet peas, which are super hard to work with I found out. I also found out that water pitchers must suffice for a lack of vases in the house.
Since I never get bored about talking about the weather, let’s discuss. Copenhagen did not have a cloud in the sky this whole week. BLISSSSSSS! I wore sandals! Without tights! I refuse to have someone rain on my parade (literally) and tell me about the thunderstorms tomorrow night.

Our house has undergone a major facelift within the past few weeks and I must say that it is lookin good. Remember what it looked like before? Brick with a red tile roof. Our landlords, who live on the bottom two floors (we live on the top), have replaced the roof with a black tile roof, plastered it and painted it white and added really lovely windows. And we are most happy that there is now insulation. Yes, after they tore off the roof it was discovered that there was none, which explains so much about why it’s just as cold inside as it is outside during the winter.
