Perfect bow ties to complement the girls' Matilda Jane outfits! I wish I had bought the child size instead of toddler for the two younger boys but they still looked so cute!

About

Times of a Dried Up Tree and Times of Blooming

I've been an artist my whole life and although I studied art studio in college it's been years since I've been creatively fulfilled - until now. My love, rather my obsession, with flowers has been constant. I'm an ardent gardener and am one of those crazy ladies who talks to her plants. Ever since I've known how to draw my subject has always flowers. My love affair with painting was also focused on flowers. It seems only fitting that now I've taken on a tangible technique with flowers. I'm thrilled to see where this new endeavor may lead me.

Apart from creating things, I'm a stay at home mom of two beautiful kids. My son, Graham, is three and my daughter Emmalyn just turned one. They are the sweetest, most loving, charismatic, and active children. The two of them keep me on my toes to say the least. Before having kids I was trained to be an elementary school teacher which I loved but I couldn't imagine leaving my kids to go back anytime soon.

My inspiration for all my work comes from nature. Flowers are my passion and always have been. I also find inspiration in vintage fashion, and through different fabrics. Just playing with different patterned fabrics can inspire me to make an entirely new flower or collection of flowers.

My life hasn't always been flowers blooming, God has taken me through quite a journey. A little over four years ago I was pregnant with my first son, Nate. During a routine 24 week appointment my doctor was unable to find his heartbeat. Well, this had happened before and it really wasn't a big deal except that my doctor needed to get the ultrasound to find it. My doctor was very quiet as she looked at that ultrasound machine which was turned away from my husband, Kevin, and me. Slowly she turned toward me and told us that he no longer had a heart beat. My world collapsed and my head began to spin as I took in the news. Many questions arose that never produced answers. All we knew was that we were never going to meet our son.

Kevin and I would mourn the loss of our son over the next several weeks but would never ever really stop mourning. During this time in our lives we turned to God for strength and support. Without His grace we would never have come out of our black hole. We had overwhelming peace that our son was in heaven, safe and sound with his maker. God's goodness is so overwhelming, just three months later we found out we were pregnant again and the joy that we once held was restored. Our joy was then exceeded two years later by the birth of our daughter. We have been so blessed by the Lord and we hope and pray that our lives reflect it.

As my business goals go I would like to be wherever God takes me. My kids will always come first in my life and if they are in a place where they can be independent enough for my business to expand, I'd be elated. It would be such an amazing blessing to actually be picked up by retailers or to open my own brick and mortar store. Wherever I am, I'm sure to be happy with what I've been given and the chance I've had to share my talent, passion, and faith with the world. I hope that my flowers can bring some sunshine and joy into the lives of their owners.
