Day 33 of Dress The Rainbow

Merrilee Liddiard of Mer Mag

Day 33 of Dress The Rainbow in light teal with Merrilee Liddiard of Mer Mag, illustrator (of this adorable flower), kids crafter extraordinaire, blogger. Here’s the thing about Merrilee. You’d never know it by the initial meeting because she’s so humble, but Merrilee knows everything. When I need sound design advice, I go to Mer. When I need technical advice info to Mer. When I need hair/make up advice I also go to Mer. She knows everything! Even things you wouldn’t expect. Aside from that her knowledge of everything, she’s a great friend with fun kids, a beautiful house, kind heart, a huge imagination, and a pure love of making beautiful things. If you’re unfamiliar with her work, get to know it! And stay tuned for her line of dolls this fall!

Day 18 of Dress the rainbow

Mindy Gledhill in Dress the Rainbow

Day 18 of Dress the Rainbow in bright yellow with my pal, the one and only Mindy Gledhill, an indie singer/songwriter, whose music will leave you swinging and twirling. You might remember her from when I did her sets for her album, Pocket full of Poetry, and from the background music to some of my classes. Needless to say, I’m a big Mindy fan. I’ve gotten to know her more and more since living in Provo and I admire her work ethic and desire to live an authentically full life and it comes across in her lyrics, videos, and mannerisms.

Mindy has had some exciting projects on her hands! First of all, she remodeled a vintage tour bus, which we are posing against, and took it on a cross country tour with her family in tow. Watch a new web series about it at ulive.com. It’s so dreamy!

More recently, she announced the upcoming release of her new electro-pop duo with @dustingledhill called “Hive Riot” (@hiveriot), which I’m totally thrilled about. The album is set to be released in the fall. Stay tuned and make sure to follow her here.

See more pics of her awesome tour bus below!

Day 12 of Dress the Rainbow and This Week

Day 12 of Dress the Rainbow with Hedley and Bennett

Day 12 of Dress The Rainbow with Hedley and Bennett

We’re already on Day 12 of Dress the Rainbow and it’s orange red in my new Hedley & Bennett apron. Have you heard of them? Ellen Bennett started the company after working in several restaurants in LA and noticing the mundane aprons, she set out on an apron crusade. I heard her speak at Martha Stewart’s American Made conference in November in NYC and the girl is pure joy. She loves aprons and life! Call me a convert. Mind you, it doesn’t convert me to cooking, but I’m not opposed to going Amy Sedaris style walking around town in an apron. And a pet bunny on a leash.

Day 4 of Dress the Rainbow

Dress the Rainbow with Damask Love

Have 4 of #DressTheRainbow is with the lovely Amber of Damask Love, who I first met at Alt Summit a couple of years ago. With her fun, colorful, crafty aesthetic, I knew she had to be a part of the project. I was thrilled when I realized that she would be at Alt in Salt Lake City in June. It was meant to be! Of course, she chosen hot pink, her go to color and it took a trip to a downtown adult novelty store to make it happen.
Hint: if you are looking for colorful walls, always look in the seedy parts of town! They do not disappoint!

Dress the Rainbow with The House That Lars Built

Well friends, I’m off on another color adventure. After #CraftTheRainbow and #LetterTheRainbow and most recently #PopsicleTheRainbow, I decided I couldn’t get enough. Or I am nuts. Both really. So I decided to start…#DressTheRainbow. With the help of some color loving friends, I’m taking my color experiments to some colorful walls with a handful of bright frocks by my side for the next 50 days! It’s a large undertaking but there are colors to wear and walls to be discovered!

I’m inviting you to join in with me on this fun project. Every day for the next 50 days I’ll post a pic wearing a color of the rainbow against the same color background. And YOU can do the same thing too by selecting any color of the rainbow and finding a wall near you and snapping a shot and posting it to Instagram where I’m hosting the project. It’s been really fun to discover colorful walls in my hood. Warning: once you start, you can’t stop! You’ll be identifying colorful walls from here on out! Just post your photos with #DressTheRainbow and @houselarsbuilt.

At the end of the 50 days I’ll choose a winner who will receive a $500 gift card to Asos, my favorite place to buy colorful clothing.

You ready??? Alright, get, set…#DressTheRainbow!
