MY STORY
I grew up in the country with a dad who enjoys gardening and who also managed a few different plant nurseries. I learned a lot from him, catching his green thumb along the way. My sister and I spent a lot of time outdoors playing in the woods or digging in the dirt. There were always natural elements at our disposal. We loved picking berries, making our own mashed berry jam, finding cool moss, and making our own gardens. In junior high I had the opportunity to…

MY STORY
I grew up in the country with a dad who enjoys gardening and who also managed a few different plant nurseries. I learned a lot from him, catching his green thumb along the way. My sister and I spent a lot of time outdoors playing in the woods or digging in the dirt. There were always natural elements at our disposal. We loved picking berries, making our own mashed berry jam, finding cool moss, and making our own gardens. In junior high I had the opportunity to work several summers on a vegetable and flower farm and gained experience tending the fields, cutting and bunching flowers, and selling their products at a farmer's market. I was exposed to a lot of crafters and loved to roam the market. I was always drawn to the booths which were selling plant or flower related products. After I married, I worked for a florist and continued to learn more about flower arranging and customer service.

I've designed flower bouquets and arrangements for a few weddings, made numerous wreaths and centerpieces, and I love creating with natural elements. Sometimes the most simple of materials is the most beautiful! One of my favorite things to do is go for a walk in the sunshine and pick wildflowers to bring home and put in an old glass jar on my patio table. There's just something so fresh and welcoming about flowers. They make me smile!

All these experiences have helped form who I am and what I love. Now I have three kids and love creating with them. I've always been intrigued by entrepreneurship and want to include my kids in learning about business, interacting with customers, handling money wisely, and creating things that will ultimately bless others. Etsy is the perfect place to do that!

Thanks for visiting The Rustic Raven!
