Normally when I do funerals for people who are young, they make me sad. This set of floral is for a twenty-year-old woman. Her mother just happened to come into my shop while I was making these. The young lady in question had an aunt who was a florist. This Aunt was making floral arrangements at home to take to the funeral, and they needed floralife, a floral preservative food. After she told me they where making florals for her deceased daughter I asked what her daughters name was. After she told me, I got to tell her I had four arrangements for her daughter, too.

I was told about this remarkable young lady who had Downs Syndrome and who loved the world, and from what I can tell from the funeral cards I had to write, the world loved her too. Her mom was all excited to see what I had made and asked if it was ok. After I showed her, she said her daughter would be so happy with those, and she herself was excited. This made me feel good because usually we just have the delivery driver take them to the mortuary and we only hear about complaints, not the happy side. After having done so many children and young-adult funerals lately, this was a very nice change for the day.

Two of these are 50 dollar arrangements and one is 40 dollars and the pink one is 95 dollars.

>Studio Room

>My life has been so busy lately that my studio has become a dumping ground for half-done projects instead of a workable room. I have been working on getting it back into shape. See the vacuum in the back of the photo. I have lots of projects I have to get done right now, like my tutorial on making a rug and finishing that afghan repair; both need lots of room and the room is big but not when it is messy. It may not look like it from this photo, but it is an improvement. All those boxes you see are full of fabric, thread, lace, ribbon and so on. This is, of course, only half of the room; the other half I am still working on straightening.
