I love flowers.
Maybe it comes from growing up with the beautiful gardens that my mom tended to.
Maybe it was the daisy wallpaper in my room (and the many other flower motifs throughout the years of redesigning my room as a child…my mom was always up for a change).
If you were to tour my home you would find flowers in each of the rooms except for my husbands office and the little guys room.
Not necessarily fresh flowers, but some kind of flower.
And with the exception of baby girls room, which is all-flower-all-the-time, it is just a hint here and there.
I was thrilled when Emily at jones design company said she was going to share some of her flower making tutorials this past week. She is one of my favorite creative blogging mommas and she lives here in the Pacific Northwest!
Have you visited her website?! If not, you should.
I plan on trying all the tutorials over the next few weeks…some of you may even receive some gifts with my handiwork on them!
Speaking of handiwork…
I got my craft on a few weeks ago on a Friday night. I used a wreath that I made last fall (the ruffle wreath tutorial from jones design company) and added…you guessed it…flowers.
I made the flowers the same way I made them for the hair clips I made for a baby shower gift for a little girl that was recently born.
On another flower note…
The neighbors dogwood is blooming.
There is a stand of trees that I drive by on a multiple times a day basis. It has dogwoods throughout underneath towering douglas firs. It’s like a little enchanted forest. I love it.
I always think I am going to stop and take some photos before the dogwoods lose the flowers, but every year I forget. Maybe this will be the year I stop and take some photos.
home is…stopping to smell, create, photograph, and love the flowers.
