The party was huge, and the flowers were plentiful, but I have to say, it went pretty smoothly. No glitches at all, in fact. Just some achey bones today.
Here's a glimpse at the flower arrangements and my studio assistant, Charlene Butterbean. If you care to see more pictures of the event, you can visit here.
After a smooth event, it's tempting to step back into the business. But my heart is in the craft world, and I need to keep pushing that business ahead.
So, this week I purged the last of my remaining floral supplies. I took 3 carloads of props, vases, and assorted supplies to Goodwill. I kept the basics - rolls of tape, my knives and clippers - but the rest went away.
Soon, we'll begin renovating my former flower space into a sparkling new craft studio. I can hardly wait. Once the room is complete, it will be so much easier to work. My current space is packed full of supplies and inventory - leaving too little space for making. I look forward to being able to sprawl out with all my projects and still have room to photograph, pack, and store my work.
FIRST, I have to get through the holiday season.
Here's where you can find me over the next few weeks:
November 19th and 20th I'll be at the Tacoma is for Lovers Artist Craft Fair at Kings Books.
Nov 25th please join me at Glitter Haus - THE holiday craft event of the season!
Dec 10th I'll be at the 2nd Saturdayz Market in Seattle.
