My name is Melissa. I am a wife and a dachshund mom. I am so happy that you stopped by!
Here's a little about me and how I got started...
This is me with my super tall husband, Josh! We got married in the heat of Summer 2014
We have 2 dachshunds - about 10 years apart! Yikes! What were we thinking? Haha - They're besties...Now.
This is our oldest, Jack - he's 12 :)
...annnd here's Rohn - he's 2 years old :)
I'm a nurse by trade, but a creative at heart! I love art, flowers, and hand-crafted keepsakes. I even did the flowers for my wedding.
QUICK STORY: One day, my sister approached me for some help with her bouquet. She ordered a sola wood flower bouquet online and once it arrived...it wasn't what she expected.
I felt a little uncomfortable disassembling my sister's bridal bouquet. But, after some trial and error, I fell in love with the whole process.
When I got started by helping my sister out, there weren't a whole lot of options detailing how to create wood flower bouquets. I spent an embarrassing amount of time searching and searching for videos, blogs, articles - anything to help me figure this out.
After much frustration, I found a few videos. But, they made me feel like I was missing something - like I was a weirdo for feeling insecure about dyeing my flowers.
Y'all, I had the flowers for a solid MONTH before I tried to dye them. - Haha - Once you dye them, then what?
I didn't have the time to watch hours of more videos to pick out all the tips and tricks hidden in them. I needed the quick, down and dirty on how this works.
Through trial and error, and soo many videos later, I started my own wood flower bouquet business. Creating bouquets has been a blast, and now I want to share what I have learned along the way!!
