This week

Maison magazine Korea February 2015 Twig NY

Happy Friday everyone! Thank you so so so much for the feedback on the new site. I’m pretty thrilled with it myself and I love hearing your thoughts. Please continue letting me know if you come across anything fishy. We’re still fixing a few things.

I’m preparing for a big shoot on Monday so I have a lot of prop making in the form of fruit and last minute wardrobe finding to do. What are you up to? Did you get caught in Snowmagaddon 2015? Surprisingly, it’s pretty mild here in Utah–I’m going with it for as long as it lasts! And after my shoot I’m doing some major preparation for 2015 for the blog. I’ve had a lot of freelance jobs the past few months and I’m excited to focus on Lars.

My dinnerware collections with Twig NY were featured alongside one of my favorite designers, Molly Hatch, in the latest issue of Maison magazine in Korea, above. I love how they styled them all together! They’re now available for sale on the Twig site!

DIY Arrow & heart hair pin

valentine's day hair pin

I’m one of those holiday-obsessed types who likes to dress up in head to toe matching outfits. You know, all green for St. Patrick’s Day, orange and black for Halloween. I realize not everyone is so maybe you just need a dash of pink for Valentine’s Day? Just maybe? This heart and arrow hair pin is a very cute way to get into the spirit without going overboard. OR dress it up with oodles of pink and red and totally kill it! And, it’s so easy to make! Check out the full tutorial below.

DIY Room to room: stamping

Remember when stamping used to be the thing? I had a huge collection of rubber stamps that I played around with making Valentine’s Day cards and such. Today it’s become popular to make the stamps yourself from common objects around the house. They tend to look a bit more organic, which I love.

Handmade Easter planner

I made a Valentine’s Day planner for last minute overachievers because I personally love it when someone tells me how to arrange my schedule. I’m sure you have a better grasp of your calendar, but in case you’re in the same boat, might I suggest a few ideas to try for Easter this year and when to do them? Easter falls on April 20th this year so we have about a month, calm down. They’re all projects from the Lars archives and I’ll be adding more so you can mix and match and customize to your heart’s desire.
  1. 4 weeks before (THAT’S NOW!): Make a bunny topiary wreath for your door. This is especially important if you don’t plan on doing anything else. At least you look festive.
  2. 2 weeks before (might I suggest making it a weekend project? April 5th or 6th): Send a care package to a loved one in a huge marbled Easter egg.
  3. 1 week before (April 12th or 13th). You need to make eggs, right? Make some terrarium Easter eggs with paper flowers.
  4. 4 days before (April 16th). Go ahead and do it. You’ve always wanted to. This is the egging that won’t get you into more trouble like the Biebs. Egg someone with a giant Easter egg at their door. Fill it with lots of goodies.
  5. 3 days before (April 17th). Dye eggs with items from nature for the big day and place them in a lovely basket.
  6. The day of. Bring an Easter lily with you as a host gift. Here are three ways to decorate the wrapping. (Make sure to buy it in advance!)
  7. The day of. Instead of a traditional sit down feast, do something different. We had a Danish Easter picnic back in Copenhagen and ate traditional smorrebrod with lots of yummy toppings.
These are just a few to get you going and to help the procrastinator in you. Or maybe that’s just me….
