hannah’s flowers: crystals, polka dots, and a color explosion!

This is a bouquet I made for Hannah and Joel’s wedding this August in Ballymena, Ireland. We’ve communicated over nearly a year sharing Pinterest boards, fabric swatches, and lots of ideas, and I’ve got to say hers is one of the more embellished and colorful bouquets I’ve done. It’s like an explosion of candy buttons and happy energy for their casual handmade Irish wedding!

See more photos from Hannah and Joel’s flowers here in their Flickr set!

*note: I edited these photos with Flickr’s new in-app editor, Aviary, after the closure of Picnik (boo!). Still trying to figure out what new program I want to use…what do you like?

    Your bouquets are so fun and this one is simply stunning!!! I use, and love, pixlr.com. There is a full version, as well as, an express version. I promise it would take you 3 minutes to figure out how to rock all the features. Give it the time! :)

    I love all of the embellishments. There’s so much to see, like taking in all of the little detais and nuances of a painting. This is not my palette, but I would sure love to see other Lasertron bouquets tricked-out like this one. Absolutely stunning.

  • Zoe

    the colour…. KAPOW!!! :D Congrats to Hannah and to the wonderful Pricess Lasertron team for making these! :)

  • Tina

    LOVE LOVE!

    try picMonkey :) it’s pretty similar to picnik and has cool edits and such. i think it’s pretty sweet!

      my mom is really liking picmonkey–I gotta see if I can import stuff from flickr into it.

    That bouquet is the perfect shot of cheerfulness! The world needs more vibrant candy-coloured bits of beauty in it. I think this is one of your best.

      thanks mary–I’m glad to add a little more color to the world. :)

  • Megan Hebel

    This has to be one of my FAVORITE bouquets you’ve ever done! <3

      thanks so much megan!

  • Renee

    Stunning as always. I’m finding that using the google+ photo (which is where picnik went) is still fulfilling all my photo needs :) I don’t think it has ALL the same stuff, but it’s better than nothing at all!

    • http://princesslasertron.com Princess Lasertron

      I know, I’ve gotta try that out! I just hate that I can’t import from flickr.

    Picmonkey is as easy to use as Picnik was, but with a lot more cool features available for free. Aviary is a lot more advanced, but a bit difficult to learn, especially if you’re used to the way other photo editors word/organize things

OOTD: Windy, Rainy, Snowy, Sunny.

I'm doing a panel talk tonight (my fourth of the week), then Friday morning I'm leaving at 6am for Ikea in Kansas City, then driving on to Bentonville Arkansas for an event at the Crystal Bridges Museum, then back up north to Chicago for a Bears game on Sunday, then back west through Iowa to Omaha to arrive Monday night and get to work again. Then it's gearing up for Thanksgiving week, which will be the most important week of my online (and beyond...) retail career.

Leaving a Mark: A new mural project in Benson

Omaha artist Watie White is currently creating a series of murals in partnership with Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska where he interviews and creates a linocut portrait of several new immigrants to Omaha. With support of other organizations including the Intercultural Senior Center, Omaha Public Schools, the South Sudan Community Association, and the Anti-Defamation League, he's creating these small-scale carved portraits and then turning the art into giant murals all over town. This is one of two murals Watie is doing currently in the neighborhood of Benson in Omaha--you can see it on the side of the Benson Law Center. The themes in the text are inspiring--the desire for education, the bravery of leaving home in hopes of a better life, and a compulsion to give back to the communities that have welcomed them.

OOTD: Wooly and warm on Election Day. Go vote!

Go vote today! Every midterm election matters. Our local officials are the ones who are both most accessible to us, and who have the most impact on our daily lives. Partisan interest groups thrive on indifference, and sitting out of the vote serves only to continue the status quo of gridlock and fear-based campaigning. Locals, show the big money coming into Nebraska's races that we're smarter than that.

OOTD: Pleats and Posies

This dress gets filed into my personal "business drag" collection, the section of my closet devoted to things I would costume myself in to fit in to another person's board room, a nerve-wracking meeting, or a pitch.

What’ I’ve Learned: Marketing on Blogs and Social Media in 2014

Barbara Soderlin, a reporter for the Omaha-World Herald, recently contacted me for some comment about local companies advertising with bloggers in Omaha and we ended up having a really rich discussion about the changing landscape of online advertising in an age of social media. She had seen me post on Facebook about the decline of blogs as the epicenter of reader engagement in favor of other platforms that ask a little less of its users.
