keya55's Shop Announcement

My main line of work is Floral Design ... My parents being Caterers; I grew up in a world filled with Weddings, Party Planning and Events. In High School I started my career in Floral Design and Horticulture and continued to further my education by attending Rittner's School of Floral Design and Business Management in Boston Ma.
I have worked in some of the finniest shops and have also owned and operated my own business for many years. I am one person who can say. “When I work with flowers, it is not work to me, it is fun and I enjoy every minute of it.”
I also love creating ... dried and silks arrangements also became a part of my world. I ran a home party service out of my home as I raised my children, along with my wedding work.
One day as I was playing and I created a doll always loving them, I ended up selling them across the country at trade shows ... My Native American doll becoming one of the most popular and also my Crystal Bearing Dolls... Each, carrying an inspirational message.
Years ago I was honored to have a Lakota Elder and her family spend the weekend with us ... as she sat at my dining room table she asked for some supplies which I had at hand ... she taught me how to make dream catchers. She told me it was her way of thanking me for my hospitality by teaching me how to make them, I would always have a way to support my family. Thus my own version of the dream catcher came to me and I share them with you .Every piece of Native American work I create is out of a great respect for the teaching that have been shared with me and a respect for their beautiful culture,
I just love to create with what I have or what I find... be it a bottle... a charm or a piece of nature... something is always around to inspire me...
Sometimes though, life takes funny turns and you wonder why... and so it was when I got hurt and lived with chronic pain for many years ...I was unable to do much of anything but lay in bed and play on the computer... there I found gourd art.. I was able to surround myself with material and play with them. I found them very healing to work with. Each has their own personality which somehow shows itself as you play with them. My bucket list has a book on it called “The Healing Art of Gourds” ... which I plan on writing someday.

So here I share a bit about me and my creations with you and the world... I hope you enjoy them. K
