Lance and Laura's Profile

About

What started many years ago as a possible passing interest in floral design very quickly grew into a passion..and as my husband will say, a serious obsession.

I work with fresh flowers, but my true passion is creating floral designs using naturally dried and preserved flowers. Perhaps it makes me feel that I can harness something that I love, fresh flowers, and control their poor untimely death. There is, however, a science to growing and preserving flowers and an art form to creating floral designs with them. The challenge of both is what I thrive on!

While I am the floral designer, picture taker, blogger, inventory maintainer, and any other job no one wants here at Dried Flowers Forever, my husband, Lance, is the one who creates the final arrangements and ships them out in a timely manner. So really, he is WAY more important than me…

We have three school aged children who have worked with preserved flowers since they were toddlers and can name most flowers, domestically grown or wild, on sight. Poor kids! They take great pride in our family business, and I hope it will instill a strong work ethic and appreciation for all things natural and beautiful.

Thank you for taking an interest in our store here on Etsy. To learn more about us, please go to our Dried Flowers Forever website and follow my blog.

Cheers!
