This photo answers the question...
Does Theresa wear the flowers that she makes?
why yes, I do!
I actually wear them quite often.
They always make me feel happy, so even if I'm wearing a t shirt, jeans and my converse, I'm usually sporting a fluffy flower. Also, I have been known to take off said flower and give it to the first person to compliment it. That will almost always be an older woman, and it makes me so happy to gift it to her.
They are usually so surprised and we both leave with a smile.
My little pay it forward so to speak.
For those of you who have shops... do you like special orders?
I'm torn, sometimes it can stress me out, wanting to get all of the colors and ideas just right, and then sometimes I take that challenge and run with it.
The easiest kind is when someone sees something in the shop and wants it personalized, like this altered trophy ribbon.
This person saw one of the original trophy ribbons and wanted to tweek it a bit.
This person saw my original felted heart garland and came up with the idea for me to make one using elephants and the color scheme you see here.
I loved the idea, she only wanted to use a little bit of the blush pink so I asked her what she thought about the hearts between the elephants in pink.
We had a few emails back and forth about this garland, and I loved every minute of the project. I "stepped out of the box a bit" for it and am so glad I did.
(I tried to take a full view picture of the whole thing, but it was really too big to get a good one.)
So here is the one she saw and then she envisioned the baby shower banner.
What a pleasure to take her vision and make it a reality!
I think the hardest kind of special orders are the kind where the person asks me to make a flower of a particular color... you know, the kind of color you would find in the big box of 360 crayons and not the kind you would find in a box of 24!
That stresses me out a bit... I mean we all know that the color you see on the screen and the color I see on my screen and then the color of the actual material itself don't always match up.
Plus what you call plum I might call brownish purpleish,
yes, I would probably call it that....
So I think I found a new way to eliminate stress...
These girls are crazy!
Meet the Lansing Derby Vixens!
No they didn't let me join... they took a look at my drivers license and said
"Girrrrrrl you crazy"
Seriously, I went to see this girl here.
She is my daughters long time friend and ever since I heard she was playing roller derby I have wanted to see her play.
You already know I am half way to 100 so I won't be divulging anything new here when I say I remember 'back in the day' watching Roller Derby on T.V.
I just thought it was so cool.
and just a wee bit scary!
ok, I'm not kidding anybody here
it's a lot scary!
These girls are tough...
I am a wimp.
I should be ashamed to tell you that,
but one of the things my momma taught me was to be truthful.
that being said...
I am a BIG wimp.
So I didn't join the team, I just went to watch with this girl...
Thanks Sweetpea... I had so much fun!
to redeem myself and all of my wimpiness
I must tell you that we sat in the suicide section.
yup, right on the floor wear the action is!
and for that,
I might just make myself a badge!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
