Easter is a great time of year for fabulous flowers! Greet the Spring Spring ushers in warmer days, those fabled spring showers moisten the ground making it perfect for sleepy plants struggling out of their winter hibernation and your local florist begins to receive her first shipments of gorgeous spring blooms. It is that breathtaking beauty which makes flowers so popular this time of year.

We are always on the lookout for new and exciting ways to use flowers, and any time we find an idea that is “outside the box”, we like to highlight it. That’s the case today as we ran across this excellent DIY post on Etsy from author Clare McGibbon detailing how to decorate a phone case with dried and pressed flowers! The process is simple, though not without need for a steady hand.

Last week for the Q&A Session we discussed if a living wage is possible with a flower business and how a designer can afford to take a workshop. Madeleine Elmer replied with a great bit of advice, enough advice that I think her reply warrants its own blog post! Thank you, Madeleine for your lovely and helpful reply! I understand your concern about making a living wage with your flower business

Growing up in Detroitmy family attended weekly church services at a gorgeous gothic cathedral on Woodward Avenue one block from the Detroit Institute of Arts . Even then I sensed the respect, awe, and wonder that still surrounds the DIA . When an opportunity to create floral designs for the DIA presented itself naturally I jumped all over it!! This is a museum of epic proportions, among the top six collections in the United States with over 100 galleries, a 1,150 seat auditorium, an art reference library and state of the art conservation services laboratory
