About Me

My photo
Welcome I've been a very busy wife, mother, puppy sitter, wreath & silk floral designer for 25+ yrs. I've been interest in beautiful designs for as long as I remember. I've dreamed about having my own shop, where I can design & create pieces that are not only beautiful but unique & very colorful. That dream is now a reality! A huge thanks to my husband for donating office space for me, my son for all his help when needed & finally my daughter Melissa, a NYC Director of Marketing & Digital Media for teaching me about business, marketing & turning my hobby into a growing business. It started out just for family & friends, craft shows, open houses, now ETSY, eBay, twitter, & Facebook. Since I am now an official empty nester, I've expanded my business to decorating homes, business storefronts for the holidays, & staging homes for realtors. I really love what I do. I'll be happy to share my thoughts, decorating tips, creative ideas, my daily, sometimes crazy thoughts & adventures in the life of a mom, wife, floral/ holiday/home staging designer etc... Enjoy! Sandy

What is a Widget?...... I Guess I Accidentally Found Out!

As usual with this whole computer thing, I see something on someone's blog that I love and instead of being a pain and asking, "how did you do that?"  I decide to search and waste countless hours on the computer...on my day off..... in between, trying to house clean, run errands, do laundry and make dinner, all before I planned on going to my shop to "create"  but as it usually goes with me, once I start something....I'm on a mission :)  So It's now "3", yes I said "3" hours later and, you guessed it...... I figured out what a widget was, and how to add this little widget to my blog!! Honestly, I have no idea how it came about, just like the countless other things I stumble upon, in my Etsy, Facebook, Twitter, and Blog adventures but.... Oh, the satisfaction  :/  It's a slide show of my Etsy shop and it looks beautiful! (Make sure you check it out- it's to the right of this page :) But at what cost.... I not only didn't get all the laundry done I wanted, I never went to my shop to make more "non-pastel" pieces haha... never got to run any of my errands but the important thing is I did get to make supper, I will drop my neighbors wreath off all on my way to my shop, and I am determined to get a few more pieces done and posted tonight......  a little late, but it's better late than never! I do have to say the little widget thing was definately worth it, even at the expense of everything else :)   Tomorrow is, as I say "another day" ........

Enjoy the day!  Sandy
