Tulip Flower Arrangement

May 8th, 2010

Yipeee! Its springtime, its so nice to see daffodils and tulips. It really brightens up my day!  So i decided to use tulips in my flower arranging but  make it a contemporary design. All the ladies from my flower arranging group know by now i like using pinks in my designs.

I had some pink twigs at home and a nice wicker basket. Most of my ideas come out of the blue when i see something lying around!

I used the pink twigs to support the tulips and a layer of hebe to cover the floral foam.

Thursdays Flower Arranging Class

March 18th, 2010

Hooray . . . its Thursday, i look forward to today because its flower arranging day. I go to a small flower arranging class near where i live.

Its a really nice and usually relaxing class. A lot of the ladies that go there have been going for years, they are all a nice bunch.

Me.... Concentration mode!

Its nice to take a break from card making to do some other creative activities.

Anyway this week was supposed to be easy, come up with a simple idea (or that’s what i thought) but it was completely the opposite. My teacher – Linda was laughing at me because i looked sooo stressed out. Lol!
