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!

Good Morning.... It's Sunday January 15th!

Hi... After a nasty week of bronchitis and a broke furnace (yes... during the coldest week of the winter so far) I'm finally starting to feel better!  I tried to work on a few things during the week but gave up and gave in to my illness and just stayed home for a few days... but woke up this morning feeling better so I'm looking forward to getting to my shop.  I'm all stocked up on all my silk flowers, wreaths, and everything else I need (at least for a few months ;) so today will be my day for focusing on Spring wreaths!  I have thousands of silk flowers surrounding me... I'll jack the heat up to 80 and pretend it's Spring!  I can't wait!

Valentine's day is right around the corner and I really love making different kind of heart wreaths!  My favorites are the silk rose heart wreaths.  I had enough materials to make 4 of them, I love how they came out and I may make a few more but with different Spring flowers!

My shop is almost organized the way I would like it to be and as soon as it's done I'll post pictures... I'm actually going to have my own office as well... I'm sooooo excited!  I wish I had a few more storage rooms but maybe that'll stop me from my serious addiction of buying WAY too many supplies... "just because they'e on sale" HAHA!!

My family surprised me with a new Samsung Tablet and Cannon Camera, which I LOVE, to make it easier for me with my business!  I was soooo  excited!  I'm never really one for getting Christmas gifts... Giving gifts to someone else makes me much happier... but I have to say, this year I was THRILLED!!!!!  Not only to have the convenience of the tablet and a camera that actuallly works, but mostly because of their support!       I think I can actually learn to enjoy receiving Christmas gifts too!! haha!

Anyway.... I'm off to my shop for a day of creating!!!!

Have a wonderful day!
