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?

    Fabulous!!!! I love everything you do, but this just might be my fave! And so fun to see pics of you and your little “assistant.” Happy Mom’s Day!

    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

    Just beautiful. Your embroidery is exquisite! :)

    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

Fifteen Favorite Things

1: Tavi Gevinson on the Nylon "It Girl" cover. We met her and did crafts together when Rookie came through Omaha on their tour, and she posted a picture of Alice’s pennant banner! Tavi called Alice a “rookie Rookie” and my heart melted. I also love the photos by Petra Collins and the intro by Hazel Cills. Writing for Rookie would be a dream. Let’s just say I’m a huge fan and this is a great article. 2: Our new Pounce Boots. I’ve been waiting for these bad boys since February! 3: My hair is growing out (No reason? I just stopped cutting it I guess?) and my go-to style has been to curl sections of my hair with a 1’’ iron and set them with these curl clips. It’s so easy.

Applejack Festival in Nebraska City, AKA Alice’s Best Weekend Ever

We left with a five pounds of freshly picked apples, a purse full of parade candy, worn-out carnival wristbands, and an angry sunburn to remember the trip by. Big thanks to the Nebraska City Tourism department and chamber of commerce for the amazing day at the Applejack Festival in Nebraska City. I grew up going…

The Entrepreneur Experience: An Interview with Lane Kennedy-Levy

I wanted to share this interview that just went up with Lane Kennedy Levy. It's a video interview about entrepreneurship, motherhood, the illusion of balance, regrets, TIPS, anxiety, mentors. I did the interview about 10 minutes after waking up from sleeping on the couch behind me all night. Cameos from my business partner Sarah and Hugo!

Personality Features

Never before has there been so much free advice at our fingertips for self-help in managing depression and anxiety, but so many years of trying to overcome the dumps by reading articles about gratitude and quotes about happiness and writing lists about small successes makes me more feel like I'm trying to dig myself out of quicksand. Thinking and meaning-making about my mood does nothing to improve my happiness. There's no logical solution to this because it's an unreasonable problem.

90-Minute Keynote

Posing a few questions to fellow speakers, fellow audience members (current and former), and fellow easily distracted people. Next month I'm presenting a 90-minute keynote address at a conference (subject: new-media marketing/youth markets) and I am terrified. Looking to my friends for a little guidance and reassurance on this.
