NEW: Order Flowers Online


As from today you may order flowers to be delivered on line. At the top of the page on the right hand side is a 'Order flowers online' tab. Please click this link and it will open, in another window, my page on the Direct 2 Florist flower delivery system.
My page is full of my designs, with one or two library photos, that you may order to be made up and delivered locally by me. There is a small fee taken by D2F for processing but the rest of the value goes to your flowers, no third party commission as some relay companies do.
You may also if you prefer take a look on line and then ring me direct to, A) save you the service charge and B) speak to me so I tailor make your design for you.

If you are looking for flowers for further afield, click 'home' (top of the page) and there is an postcode finder. If you enter the recipients postcode it will take you to the closest few florists to this and then you get the choice of florist and flowers.

Daily thoughts

Are we all enjoying this wonderful weather? What a lovely week to be able to potter about setting up storage space and deciding where all my lovely stock needs to live.
I am still working hard though, collecting a few items for one of my brides for this weekend from one of my many trusted suppliers and wading through consults and quotes as well as delivering gift bouquets.

Once sorted I shall be posting about my new studio but for now it is in no fit state for public approval. Why when you unpack do you feel you have more stuff than you started with?

Funeral tributes

Today has been my first full day of solely being self employed. All the planning has finally come in to force. While it has been ages and at some points I never thought it would happen, here I am, sat on my own in my studio with only me to bring in the work........scary!
On the other hand I have had a really good day with funeral tributes (pictured) and some gift work to deliver and my first funeral consult at a clients home.

5ft Coffin Spray
My main specialality is wedding and event designs but I am more than happy to create funeral pieces both traditional and modern. I will deliver to all local, both Lincoln and Gainsborough, funeral directors and in some cases wil be able to travel further afield.
I will soon have a web page up and running for ordering online or you can ring me and speak direct.

Catching up

It has been sometime since I last posted due to various business and personal reasons. BUT now I'm back!!!! Maybe not everyday but with all the changes going on here at The Studio there is plenty to catch up on so as often as the workload allows.

I have been busy with wedding most weekends since March and with The Studio being built, painted and furnished and a new van it has been a busy few months.
I also lost one of our family members, our beautiful greyhound, Sally. She was around 15 years old and was still trying to keep going and at times pushing herself more than her poor body could manage so the painful decision to put her to sleep was made. I know it was the right decision but it doesn't make it any easier.

There are plenty of weddings to catch up on and if you are one of my couples who have sent me photos of your day, I thank you. I will get there and I will soon hopefully be back on track with both the blog and the web page.

For now I thank you all for your patience and I will be back soon with lots of flowery loveliness.
