Here, There, and Everywhere.

Super "Sweets" Christmas Display
Today I'm running here and there picking up fresh flowers from the wholesaler, prepping the flowers, searching for lost supplies in my garage, and generally running around circles. Still some things are getting accomplished. For instance, I've found a few things in my garage I didn't know were there. I've also been able to pick up a few Christmas trends. What, you may wonder, am I up to?

Well, each fall I dust off my floral designer apron and do the flower arrangements for a couple of events at my church. The largest is this Sunday so I've been prepping and sourcing all the flowers and drygood supplies I need to put those arrangements together tomorrow.

But in the midst of the running to the local wholesalers to pick up the supplies I need, I've glimpsed some pretty wild Christmas displays. Which has been really fun. I snapped a few pics for  you guys that I'll share with you soon. These wholesalers are always at the very edge of super trendy when it comes to seasonal floral or permanent floral displays and it was fun to kind of soak up their installations.

Something I wanted to quick tell you all though is that my book, Creative Bloom: Projects and Inspiration with Fabric and Wire is also here, there, and everywhere. I just found out that it is now available as an e-book for the Kindle, and is also available in the ibook format through iTunes. I got the sample from iBooks yesterday. Kind of fun- now I can tell someone about my book and pull out my phone and show them a few pages besides. So I thought I would let y'all know too. :) 

I'll be back on Monday with some pictures from the weekend. Just a quick reminder though- the Handmade MN market is next weekend. If you're local you will NOT want to miss this event!! For more details look here.

I look forward to seeing the trends you've captured. Very fun about your book and it's different versions. I downloaded a sample for the iBook. How very cool! I wrote an amazon review (my very first) and blogged about the book , too. I'm really enjoying it. Congrats again!!
