I'M SARAH!

I was once called a crafty ass bitch!

I love sewing, soldering, drilling, sanding, trimming, painting, building, hammering, measuring, mixing, tinkering, decorating, styling, cooking, baking, frosting, cleaning, organizing, styling, shooting, coloring, cutting, gluing, dreaming... creating!

A Few Things

I Call Myself

I love sharing my projects, creative messes, and things that might help inspire others here on this blog.
I'm a designer of many things... blogs + websites, interiors and spaces, many a mood board, wedding dresses (one and done!), and more.
I'm 100% self-taught and love snapping and editing photos for this blog and for my stock shop!
I *live* to roll up my sleeves, create a big beautiful mess, and do it myself.

PERFUME GIRL

It makes me so happy when people tell me that certain flowers and plants make them think of me.

CRAZY FLOWER & PLANT LADY

My two most favorite things I call myself!
I feel blessed to have an aesthetic eye. I've always had it, even as a little kid!

What Does Sisoo Mean?

My Favorite DIY Project:

The Finnish art of inner strength, endurance, tenacity, determination, perseverance to defeat any obstacle in your way. Sisu is an inherent spirit of Finnish culture. It is the will and integrity to overcome, no matter the odds. (And to do so with a smile.) In English, the closest saying may be, "Just do it!" Or as my Finnish Dad loved to explain it,  "It means to have intestinal fortitude!" or... GUTS :)


Our wedding!

We got married during a global pandemic with 15 of our closest friends and family. We designed and DIY'd the entire thing. (I made my dress too!)

Check out the DIY of my life.

I'm known in my crowd as the maker (and bringer) of many a flower crown.

Love this husband of mine who is often mistaken for a superhero. (Srsly!)

When I'm not in the middle of a DIY project, I can usually be found glued to my computer designing a new template for my fellow bloggers, hanging out in the "aisles of possibility" at Home Depot or Hobby Lobby, styling new scenes for my stock shop, dreaming up flirty new perfume names, or out in the wild with my cowboy boot-wearing hunky husband and forever-fetching fluffy labradoodle.

My favorite things include getting outside (and staying outside all day), road-trips along the California coast, beach bonfires with friends (I'll bring the sparklers!), over-the-top DIY projects, getting up at 5am to go to the DTLA flower market (HEAVEN ON EARTH!!!), and taking endless photos of people I love.

Love is in the details

A peek at our Palos Verdes ceremony and Culver City reception. We did it on the very rare Halloween Blue Moon during  COVID with 15 of our closest people. We created everything--I made my dress, arranged the flowers, designed the tables. My husband built the twinkling light canopy of my dreams and a beautiful custom table to fit 15. I pour love and detail into every project I take on. Want to work together on your creative project?
