This week

Kate Zaremba co

I hear today is some sort of sporting day…or something…Ha! This is the way I feel about it. And after seeing this I’d love to see the Super Bowl halftime show. I love, love, love the new Coldplay album. Like, love. It’s on repeat. It’s been years since I’ve had anything on repeat, but this one I love.

In other news, the picture above is from my friend Kate Zaremba, who created 500 hands for a backdrop wall for a large event at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. We were inspired by her work to create our hand in heart valentines. I’m opening up all of my Instagram hash tags up to readers so if you are making any Valentine’s Day projects, tag them with #LarsLovesLove and all general crafts under #LarsMakes.

Happy weekend! Here are some links to finish it up in case you’re not a Super Bowl watcher. 

The cutest washi tape! 

This video shows how wood block papers are made. It’s incredible.

On working for free…

Paul and I just finished this show and it’s the only baking/food show I’ve ever seen. It’s delightful and so good! 

I want this dress so much! But they don’t have my siez 🙁 (they do on the UK site though. rats!)

Beautiful paper plant

Introducing…Mauve weddings

You might recall this project I did last year for BHLDN, Anthropologie’s wedding site. It was photographed by my good friend Jessica Peterson, who I always turn to when I need really great photos. Well, I’m so thrilled for her because she is finally doing weddings with a new company she’s started called Mauve Weddings. Take a look at some of the images she created below and make sure to check out the site and book now, she’s filling up fast!  Read on →

Readers make: Balloon arches

Dear readers, do you know how tickled I get when I see you making my projects? And then sometimes you take my projects and turn them into something even cooler. I’ve been spotting the balloons arches ever since I created one with floral designer Ashley Beyer of Tinge Floral for the BHLDN collaboration last year. I thought I’d share some of my favorite projects.

Above and below, Peyton Frank of Grit and Gold created this gorgeous floral balloon swag for Valentine’s Day. Photography by Ben Q Photography.

Abby Larson of Style Me Pretty created a fantastic state fair party theme along with this twist on my balloon arch with larger balloons. She beat me to it! I had been wanting to experiment with huge balloons. Love it! Photography by Ruth Eileen
