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.

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.
