How many years have you been in business, or have been a designer/artisian?

I have been a certified floral designer for the past 10 yrs. However flowers & designing have been passion for me as long as I can remember. I began my journey by working as a in a small town flower shop & through the years I was drawn to weddings and soon discovered this to be my specialty, so now I design for weddings only. With the ever growing trend for destination weddings as well as brides desiring a silk wedding bouquet as a memorable keepsake, I was encouraged to open my Etsy store in 2010 and share my bouquets and accessories with brides everywhere.

Describe your workspace and/or tools or machinery you use.

I design with high quality silk & real touch flowers, as well as design for fresh flower weddings that are locally based. The tools I use are floral tape, design knives, floral clippers, scissors, pliers & floral glue.

I recently moved into a new workspace. It is 632 sq foot, absolutely wonderful for production. I now have a design table, a shipping area, ready to ship section and an office space all in one large room. Previously I was using several rooms in the basement of my home. I had outgrown the workspace so this adjustment that has greatly helped my growing business.

What inspires you or compels you to stay creative?

I love going to floral design shows to see what is new & innovative for the upcoming wedding season. Especially the hands on seminars, these are wonderful for learning what’s current in floral design. I always come away with fresh design ideas & new techniques from experienced designers. The European design shows are always fun & inspiring to take in.

Another wonderful inspiration is from my brides. They bring their ideas to me, flower, color & design choices based on their vision & dream. I love that, custom work is always exciting & unique to the bride.

Tell us about your most recent project

I am most recently working on a bouquet design for a bride with the handle treatment incorporating material from her grandmother’s dress. I love this idea, a bouquet uniquely designed for her with a very special meaning as she carries it down the aisle, she will have a touching reminder of her grandmother in her hand.

What is your typical day like from the time you wake up until you go to bed?

 The first part of my day begins with answering e-mails & setting up custom orders. I start my work day around 8am. It usually takes 2 hours to answer messages, then I print orders that have come in overnight. After a few coffees I start my design process, it is usually it is 10:00 or 11 before I start working on my orders. I try to start packaging & printing shipping labels by 3:00 to have the parcels ready for the post office by 5pm. When I return I usually check emails once again & then work at getting things ready for the next day. I wrap up by 6:00 to head home.

I love designing & I’m so very privileged to do what I love each day. All the hard work is so rewarding to see the happy brides, I love it when they share photos & count it as a privilege to be chosen as the florist. To have had a small part in making their day special brings me great joy!
