About

Hand to Heart

I LIKE FLOWERS!
Something about their beauty brings me joy. I love to look at them by the hour.
Sadly, they are so fragile, and the blooms don't last long enough. So I do my best to replicate what I see in nature out of clay, so that the blooms last virtually forever. Learning from the cake decorating trade, I believe I take them even a step further into realism.

I started creating flowers for family and friends in the early 1970's when my mom bought me a pamphlet on how to create them from white bread and glue I wasn't satisfied with the clunky posies they showed, I wanted realism. So, I worked out ways to make my flowers more realistic with thinner petals, I began to make my own realistic stamens and pistils. Friends and family were amazed at how realistic they were when I gave them as gifts. I was encouraged to create them for sale.

I started creating hand-created greeting cards business in 1996 after I graduated from college. The cards were individually hand-created works of art painted, drawn, raised/embossed with self-made stencils, I had some success--some wedding invitations I hand made were sent around the world. (grin) After a while, sales dwindled with the popularity of card-making programs and scrap-booking so I wondered what I could create for loved ones once again.

After a kitchen accident in 2012 that resulted in multiple stitches across my knuckles, I had to have occupational therapy to regain use of my hand. As I worked with the thera-clay, I was convinced I could begin making flowers again and began to work. As I gave them away as gifts, people told me I should start selling them. I started up my business once more with a focus on flowers from clay instead of hand-made greeting cards. I study nature, and am confident I can bring you realistic and life-like clay flowers.

Another hiatus with a broken wrist and the therapy to regain function and once again, I am creating beautiful and life-like flowers.

To date, I have sold these flowers across the United States. What flowers would you like for your home from Forever Flowers Plus? Please send a personal message and we can get started on your beautiful arrangement of Forever Flowers Plus.

Blessings always!
