Flowers for Eve and Tom’s wedding, version one

This is sort of the “first draft” of a collection of flowers I created for Eve and Tom, a couple from the U.K. I’m going to add a few more details to the bridal bouquet for sure but I’m still thinking on it a little bit. The heart in the bouquet is made to hold one of Eve’s beloved brooches. These posie-style bouquets have been super popular for me lately. I love making them because they take less time to make the foundation of each flower so I can spend more time thinking creatively about how to make the bouquet special on the whole.

I took these photos at night in my office against a white backdrop, so they’re pretty cold. I tried to work with it.

Hope you had a lovely Cyber Monday and found some good deals!
I haven’t started my shopping yet. It might be a year of homemade gifts.

    Cold doesn’t enter my mind at all when I see these pictures — they are some of my favorite bouquet pictures you’ve posted! Wintery, yes. But not cold. Beautiful!

    I love all of this so much. These are my favorite you’ve ever done besides mine. The colors are perfect. I would buy these just to have.

      thanks brittan! I love those little black polka dot buttons. I wish I had a million more.

How long until women don’t need to marry a technical cofounder?

Right now I'm listening to founders Susan Koger (Modcloth), Susan Feldman (One Kings Lane), and Julia Hartz (Eventbrite) on the Commonwealth Club on NPR. As I'm hearing them speak, I'm noticing a very common pattern between their stories that I have not recognized before.

Five things I’ve learned as a full-time Airbnb host

1. Airbnb is actually about entrepreneurship (which can kind of sneak up on you).
When I started hosting, it was truly out of desperation because I needed a way to fund the new company I was building. When I made my first few hundred dollars in a month with seemingly little effort, I realized that by taking hosting more seriously I could avoid what I thought was the inevitability of needing a part-time job (in addition to my 60-hour/week at Hello Holiday plus parenting my daughter). As my personal finances were dwindling, I could never have stomached the idea that starting a second business would be the solution, which is why the possibility of so much hosting success surprised me.

That thing where it's 420 degrees outside and 69 degrees inside.

when you want to work as remotely as possible: traveling for business

A: Travel is important to me because it helps my morale. It recharges my spirit. Every month or two? I like to get away as often as I can…probably sometimes to the annoyance of my business partner and coworkers. It’s always important to me to find something to work on wherever I go–a reason to make it worth my while from a business perspective–but there are some places I go just to ONLY work.

OOTD: Office Hours

This summer instead of having our 4-year-old Alice go to her school’s summer program, Dave and I decided to get a nanny. Her name is Kylie and she’s been WONDERFUL over the past two months! I really wish we could keep her all year and just have Alice in this hybrid coparenting-learning-field tripping-coming to the office situation, but I’m not sure I’m up for all the coordination it would take. I’m definitely considering it because I’ve never seen Alice so engaged and happy–she plays all day, does art and science camps and activities all over town, and gets lots of time outside, which leads to nice early bedtimes. Smile. I love having her at work after 4 every day and all day on Fridays.
