I don’t craft. Often friends ask if I do the best crafts with my kids because of my creative background…this is not the case! They are exposed to art/design through my work and other avenues, but when it comes to “crafting” it just doesn’t happen in my house. I think that is because that creative itch is already taken care of through my work. I design for others…I design for photo shoots…I sometimes design just for me. I dream about designs. So, I don’t craft.
However, I know there are many people that do “craft” to fulfill that creative itch. Maybe it’s painting, cooking, or even scrapbooking. So, I am throwing it out there…why not floral design?
Flowers have a way of making you smile even when you are not happy. They lift the spirit effortlessly. They are everywhere – in your yard or at the grocery store.
Have you ever grabbed a bouquet at the grocery store completely unexpectedly just because it caught your eye? I love it when this happens. There is a local grower that sells the most beautiful tuberoses each season to Whole Foods down the street. I can’t resist – I buy a bunch every time!
If you love flowers the way I do, I encourage you to sign up for one of my hands-on workshops. It is a completely relaxed environment. This is not a classroom setting where I tell you what to do. My workshops offer an opportunity to learn design techniques that I have gathered through my years of experience and then we ALL create. I just want to share what I know and then design – that is it.
Please join me sometime and design in my studio. You will walk away with a creation YOU designed to take home and enjoy and hopefully a desire to continue designing. You can ask as many questions as you want – I am one of those souls that loves to share what I know.
You can register for workshops on my website or email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to receive notifications about future classes. I am offering 2 classes right now - design basics and BYOC (Bring Your Own Container).
Come on…sign up…you will be inspired and your love of flowers will grow!
