I love how this wreath turned out! Sunflowers are my favorite and this gives the perfect pop of color to my front door.

About

Just keep designing...just keep designing!

Since as long as I can remember I always liked staying busy and learning new things. I grew up in a very rural area and in the Southwest. As kids growing up we were really close with my grandparents and they were always active in creating something new. My grandpa, would recycle things out of old wood or even use jelly jars for something new in his tool shed. I was always right behind him, asking questions - "How do you do this?' - "What is this for?" My grandma was always on her sewing machine or hand stitching something. Making quilts, embroidering pillow cases, or creating gifts for her friends from little framed pieces to pot holders. There I was, asking more questions, "How do you make this?' - "Can I help?"
That was the stepping stone for me, I started painting by numbers (you remember those!), latch hook pillows and rugs, and then embroidering off patterns, then I found I really enjoyed cross stitching. I cross stitched anytime I could, even out of school, my summer vacations had some big project I wanted to finish.

Life took me in different directions and all my crafty took a back seat, until I got a job in a flower shop! I learned the ropes from the very bottom, processing flowers, taking phone calls, learning names and how to care for flowers and plants. I learned to design, then I officially went to school to earn my master florist certification. I have been a floral designer for over 16 years now.

In the meantime, I met my wonderful husband and we are married to the military. Which takes us all over the states and even the world. We move.. a lot. We started a family, moved more, got a dog, moved more. So again, my creative work took a back seat :( I have kept my creative juices flowing throughout the years, by designing artificial designs for my home or even buying a few growers bunches and setting them on my table at holidays and sometimes just because.

I would have friends and family stop by our home and ask me, "Where did you get your wreath?" and I kindly respond, "I made that :)" I would get asked to create something for them and that's how it just progressed into what I am doing today with my Etsy shop.

If it wasn't for others noticing my work, then I wouldn't be sharing it with you. I get to do what I love and knowing that someone else is enjoying what I created makes me feel wonderful. :)

Welcome to my shop - Picking Petals. I'm a certified floral designer for 16 years now. But since I can't ship fresh flowers... I design silk floral designs, from wreaths to centerpieces, to vases and baskets and more! I also create cross stitch items because I love needlepoint crafts.
Enjoy!
