Mini Succulent


Hello. It's me. Sorry, I've been ignoring my little o' blog. Been laying low, picking apples, trick or treating, cooking and baking and sleeping. But then the wedding march really never ends. Already meeting brides and grooms for 2012 and have been busy writing up proposals. One more wedding and season number three will end. I find myself asking lots of questions this time of year. Mostly about the direction of my business and more importantly my creative life.

I had a great chat over coffee with an old college friend this morning. We've recently reconnected after running into each other at the flower market. She too is an artist and florist. It's obvious that many fine artists find themselves working in flowers. It can be a natural fit. But running a profitable business as well achieving creative fulfillment is a challenge...and I suspect it always will be no matter what your medium is. I feel the need to branch out. Be back soon.

After a long season, I'm feeling ragged and also questioning how to make a small flower business more profitable. I need to call on some other creative floral ladies and see how they continue to make it work year after year. Time off from the high-pressure wedding world is a must...
I hope you are able to enjoy the holidays with your family, and please share any insights you have with us!
PS Loved your husband's artwork!!
