I am really excited for a fresh new week. mr. larson and i have loads of wedding related to-do's on our list (it's crunch time! less than two months…) and i am working on two new e-courses that will be out around the first of the month. i really really want to sew new chevron curtains for my bedroom. it feels like spring…… finally! 

 

happy new week! β™₯ elsie

  • isn’t wedding planning fun though? (well, parts of it)
    i know your wedding will be lovely! it’s about a month before mine…and don’t worry, we still have LOTS to do too πŸ™‚

  • Aww, have fun this week planning your wedding with your soon to be mister…i bet your wedding is going to be magical! Have a good night!

  • Ohh…I cannot wait until your wedding happens…the pictures and beauty of it will totally remind me of watching fairytale wedding stories from Disney! Yep…this nerd is doing a happy dance! You both have great taste, it’ll surely be a lovely event! Hearts, Janna Lynn

  • I don’t know how you do it! I feel so behind on my wedding planning and it’s still 5 months away!!!

    Post Script: In the picture second to the top, is that a metal file keeper? If it is my Nana has the very same one, she has been keeping files in it long before I was a twinkle in my daddy’s eye!

  • I just made myself some chevron curtains for the bedroom. Tweaked the pattern a little bit, and painted onto store bought curtains. So easy, and I love how they turned out. Good luck.

  • I can only imagine how stressful wedding plans can be. You’ll make it through your to-do list!!

    Also, do you crochet? The yarn and afghans in the pictures above are simply beautiful!! I really want to try crocheting one like in the last picture!

    I hope you have a great Monday!!

  • i can’t wait to see what your wedding is like. i know it’s going to be so beautiful, crafty & inspirational!!

  • Dear lord Elsie! You’re always go go go (: Hope you have a lovely time organising the last bit for the wedding.

  • we are getting married the same weekend! my date is may 14th : )
    So exciting and I know EXACTLY how you feel about everything that needs to be done!

  • Hi! I couldn’t find an email address to send this to besides the one on the Sponsorship page, so I’ll just leave this here.

    Would it be possible for Mallory to give some tips for aspiring DIY designers? I’d like to produce a few dresses by myself and am finding that most online tip guides are confusing or too disjointed. How does outsourcing work? What’s the most efficient way to sew dresses yourself? Should you sew by request or have a set with different sizes available? Which sizes should you have more of? …and so on.

    Your post about how you got into producing a dress line was very inspiring and it is the reason that I’m pumped to pull out the sewing machine. Even if she can’t give some tips, I just want to thank all of you for being so beautiful and inspiring. :]

  • Kathryn,
    Thanks for the sweet requests. Being a super new fashion line we aren’t ready to give advise yet… maybe next year. We still have a lot to learn and refine.
    Good luck with your adventure!!! Els

  • What a beautiful snap of your typewriter! Looks great with the cute blanket colours coming through!
