I haven't been making much apart from a few bouquet orders since its busy season but I'm aiming to start again very soon. 

Pinterest always keeps me interested and gets my creative juices flowing and I chanced upon this anemone tutorial. Very different from how I do min...

I rediscovered a love for the Bordeaux cartotecnica crepe paper. It looked so good made into a dahlia and I couldn't stop staring at the subtle colour differences due to the stretches at certain parts of the petals.

I’ve been working on a couple of bouquets for loved ones and the process of learning how to wrap them has been pretty fun.

These photos make up for last night’s scare. My glue gun caused a power trip and when we weren’t convinced, it did so by showing me a huge spark.Thank God my home and all the crepe paper around the glue gun were unharmed.

About 2 months after I thought of a name for my...
