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.

Things I’ve Learned Trying to Break Into Plus-Sized Retail

I used to think that retailers that didn't carry plus sizes were deliberately excluding a huge segment of the market, but as a small retailer that is trying hard to offer those sizes to our customers, we've learned so much about the extended sizing landscape in ready-to-wear fashion.

DIY: A Fabric Flower Crown from my book, Fabric Blooms!

Crowning Glory Rose Bouquet Headband

One of my favorite trends right now are flower headbands. They're whimsical in a tall, teased-up hairdo, and they can be sweet and demure on a favorite little girl in your life. I made this headband in shades of yellow and pink roses, but once you get the hang of this technique you can re-create it with other flower types, different colors, and other fabrics for a completely different look that's personal to you. Each step is included in the photo below, so you can sort of see how the process looks as you create the headband. These instructional photos are one of my favorite things about Fabric Blooms--they're beautiful, easy to follow, and they were a lot of fun to style with photographer Justin Limoges! Thanks too to my model, Sarah Lorsung Tvrdik aka Fash Flood aka my business partner!

Princess Lasertron x Interface School: Blogging to Build a Brand

I got a very exciting email a several weeks ago from Shonna Dorsey, the cofounder and executive director of Interface School, a huge up-and-coming web school with the goal of helping people build knowledge and skills in tech and increase the base of hirable talent for startups and small businesses in the Midwest. (That was a long sentence. I hate it when I do that.) Shonna asked me if I would be willing to design and host a class about blogging for beginners, and I am so excited to have the opportunity to do just that next week!
