Hi Guys....you know, it's always a wonderful thing to have the opportunity to have my floral work published in a magazine that is truly one of my favorites....I always imagined being published in Flower Magazine and when I got the invite from them, it was truly a blessing. To be featured in the same publication where some of my favorite floral artists have been featured was truly an "Aha Moment"!!
So, here I am...in the Summer issue....I'm designing a DIY flower crown and get this...I'm being photographed by Patricia Lyons .......she's one of my favorite photographers and favorite ladies.....Patricia's beautiful daughter Dylan is our model. Thanks so much to the wonderful staff at Flower Magazine and I have to give a huge shout out to the oh-so-sweet and beautiful Pamela, it was such a joy to meet you and work with you. My next "Aha Moment" will be to have my work featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, but until then, it was pretty darn sweet and fabulous to be featured in the issue of Flower Magazine with Miss Martha on the cover.....I really thought she would have called me by now!!!.....xoxoxo
