Time for blooming.....

Schools out for me and now is a time to relax and revitalize for more blooming.  Nanny blooms has been working on some new blooms, and finishing up some blooms for special orders.  I can't wait to see where this summer takes me.  I am making some blooms now that are incorporating burlap, linen, lace, cotton fabrics and felt, all in neutral colors.  They are so pretty.   I would love to have to do a bouquet in them because they look so vintage to me.  I may just make one for a whim.  I have it all pictured in my head. Below are the blooms I am working on as hair clips or pins.

Nanny Blooms are out!!!!!

Schools out, and top on my priority, before I get cold feet, was to get some marketing strategy's for selling my Nanny Blooms.  I had some ideas in my head, but had asked a few people to give me advice as I begin the real road of my new little flower shop business.  Today was the first of the meetings and I am so excited with more ideas than I had before.  I wanted to have a few little boutiques throughout my area and east to carry my blooms so that I could travel around and restock and visit sweet people.  Today is a milestone because now they are in a shop in Van Alstyne Texas called Abby Lane.  The owner Shannon Morgan is a friend who's children are grown (almost) but were in our preschool when I directed the program (years ago).  What a special time to visit with her and here about her kids, see her shop, pick her brain on my blooms, and have her be the first to stock some of my flowers.  It is an exciting day.  God is so good to give us the desires of our hearts, this little bloom business is a desire that has sprung up over the last year, but really over the course of my crafty little life.  I love making the flowers, but most of all I love seeing the look on peoples faces when they look at them in person and touch them and enjoy them.  Thank you God today for this blessing and may it honor you and bring glory to you as I make and share each one. 
Well, with that, the blog bloom page looks empty now, but my creative little brain is flowing, keep your eyes peeled for two things more blooms, and a website for on line buyers.  I am hoping to be up by the first of July, and I know the time is going by fast. 
Speaking of July Red white and blue blooms are SO cute on hats.  Email me if you would like a 4th of July bloom.
