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.

What would you do with a billion dollars?

Lately Sarah and I were talking about how much a million is, how much a billion is. The most striking thing I read recently that put it into perspective was that a million seconds is about a week and a half, but a billion seconds is nearly 32 years. Sarah asked me, what would I…

2014, in list form.

Wise people always say not to focus on the negative. It turns out that that's good advice, because there's a lot of positive out there. I was in a depressy mood last week depressing to my friend/advisor/midnight oil hero Jason about something I typically depress about, and when we started talking about what was good this year instead of bad, it felt like a much more successful year. Wildly so. Adventurous. Daring. Extraordinary. Fortuitous. And not nearly all work-related. My intention for 2015 is "less surviving, more living," but I sure did squeeze a lot of life out of the past year or so. 2014 is going down in history. Why not make a list? Here's mine.

Know that the next year will surpass all others.

"Oh passion-filled days, all steadfast and young, know that the next year will surpass all others, because it is new, and because it will be filled with moments that will remain unspoken of harsh and light, right along with your steady heart.
When we allow ourselves the sweetness of now, we may have all of the adventures that life has to offer in the coming year—if we are so fortunate as to have one."

Alice Elfie’s Day Off

Alice and I stayed home today so we could start making presents for our family. It's hard to find much time to be together and do any of that between getting off work and bedtime, so we both took a day off! We listened to the Mariah Carey holiday Pandora station all day and had personal pan pizzas delivered for lunch, and ate all the cookies we wanted from a cookie exchange we went to last weekend. Here's what we made, including links!

OOTD: Clothes to covet

Today Alice and I are staying home to work on all of our Christmas gifts together! With my new work schedule, there isn't a lot of time between work and bed to finish any meaningful projects together, so we both took the day off to make and wrap all of our gifts. One thing on my gift list is this outfit. If we don't sell out of my size before the holidays, I'll definitely be buying it from the store. Usually I just buy whatever I want as things come in or order extra for myself, but during the holidays I want to give all of our extra inventory a chance to sell at full price before I snatch it up.
