Hello! I am new to Etsy and looking to sell some of my wreaths, swags and other flower items. It is a new hobby for me and I call it my own therapy. I am a student mental health counselor and look forward to graduating with my Masters next year.

During my education, student counselors have been told time and time again to use "self care". This means taking care of yourself, not just others. Burnout is a common problem for counselors.

When I am looking for flowers, I look for quality items with vibrant colors. I love the vibrant flowers because it stands out when seen from the street or in a room. Remember, the door is the first impression that a person has of your home and family :)

When I make the wreath, I take my time so that each item is placed where I like it and then I double check each item to make sure it is glued in securely.

I hope that you enjoy my items and if you have any suggestions or feedback for me, please let me know. Feel free to email me if you have questions or something made special for you.
