I have been missing for awhile in case there might be one of you who noticed! ;)
Buried in my workroom filled to the brim with boxes and boxes of floral stems, pumpkins and colorful fall greenery, I have been creating one arrangement after the other for my fall show. A lot of effort and time go into turning my home into a store for a few days.
This one is done in a lidded chest.
There was much concern for me because my 325 flyers that were sent out to my customer list had an error on it! My heart dropped when the first person called saying she received my lovely invite but was confused! I proofed the informative side of the invitation over and over but the address side was where the problem was and went overlooked by me AND my daughter who was helping me stick labels and stamps on. The printers had accidentally left the date of my LAST year’s fall show at the bottom of the card on their computer, so there was an Oct. 2nd, 3rd and 4th date on one side, and the correct Sept. dates on the other. I made sure to get everyone’s email address this time in case there is need to get a hold of my customers quickly in the future!
A different twist from a grapevine wreath ~~ fall lovelies on a magnolia leaf base. This looked prettier in person.
Rich, vibrant colors…oh I just love them!
One lady bought both of these. I wish I had had more.
Guess what I’ll be doing October 2nd? Opening my doors in case customers who only looked at the one side of the invite might show up! If life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Isn’t that what they say? Maybe I’ll end up selling a bit more. It’s awfully nice to see the comforts of fall in my home once again….even though it is a bit much with so many arrangements!
It’s good to be back. I’m anxious to check in with everyone to see what fun things you are doing.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll stay awhile and say hello!
