Oh my! Ok, so I’m not the best at posting here. I keep things current on Instagram, but I’ll try to dust off this page on a regular basis!
So, it’s been a busy holiday season which I am very thankful for. It’s nice to switch gears and really focus on wreaths and getting out into the community of small business owners and the people that support us. I did several classes at Fern (always & forever), as well as at the Church of the Redeemer, Taft Museum, and Oakley Wines. I really love leading these classes and meeting the people that take them. I also
sold wreaths at Holiday Markets at Fern, Spruce and the last one is coming up tomorrow at Parlour.
Please join me and some of my very favorites! You know I’ll be bringing those mini wreaths with me.
I have a nice DSLR camera, it's just kind of old and still intimidating to me. But I started using it recently to take photos of my flowers. It's a nice change up from the ol' iPhone. Here are some (unedited) photos of spring flowers - the best.
Happy summer and here's to more posting!
Valentine's Day 2017
Hello, lovers needing lovely things — It's almost that time of year again! Buy yourself or a loved one an arrangement like this or, a box full of goodies from Spruce Nail Shop, Brown Bear Bakery, and P.F. Candle Co, all accompanied by a little arrangement of mine. Megan dreams up the best VDay gifts around!
Order until Feb. 2 over at fern-shop.com, with pick up available Sunday, Feb.12 at FERN or free delivery on Feb. 14.
I can't believe this marks my third wreath season. I really love making wreaths, and I'm always looking for new ingredients to add to the fragrant evergreens that signify a festive holiday season, or, 'Damn, it's really cold out!'. I'll be leading a sold-out wreath making class at Fern next weekend, and will have wreaths for sale there, here on my site and the following weekend (Dec. 10) at Idlewild. UNA wreaths will be all around town this December!
Also, this season I'm compelled to give back more than ever, locally and nationally. I will be donating 20% of all wreath sales — 10% to Design for Progress (read all about this amazing fundraiser by Sight Unseen here)
and 10% to WordPlay. an awesome non-profit organization right in my neighborhood.

I feel super lucky that I get to call fellow mothers / entrepreneurs Megan of @fernshopcincinnati and Ally of @alexdavis.photography my good friends and supporters — not to mention all around bad-ass ladies. I love working and collaborating with them and this Saturday, May 7 we're uniting at FERN. We want to celebrate all the encouraging, loving, deserving mothers out there! Ally will be conducting mini portrait sessions of mothers and kids (how awesome! finally, moms, you get to be IN the photo and a stunning photo at that), I'll have little hand-tied bouquets and local flowers for sale and we'll have bites and sips for you while you shop.
Hope to see you there! Saturday, May 7, 11am - 4pm, 6040 Hamilton Ave
Whoa! It's 2016 (15 days in!) and Valentine's Day is around the corner. This past week Megan and I got to work playing and photographing beautiful flowers in anticipation of the holiday. We have an amazing gift box available for pre-order as well as hand-tied bouquets that will be available for pick up at Fern. Head over to fern-shop.com for all the pretty details.
I can't believe a little over a year has passed since I started this flower adventure! I have a lot to update you on, including my experience at Kelly Perry's Team Flower Workshop this past April. It was amazing and inspiring, and I met so many wonderful flower friends. I look at the above photos and think "Wow - I made that!!". Awesome.
Join us this Valentine's Day! Pre-order a speciality gift box from fern-shop.com (you have until Feb.2nd) or buy a bouquet on Saturday, Feb.14th. We'll have drinks and flowers - treat yourself or someone you love.
Wreath season is almost over and I will miss it. Really, I will.. I had a great time this month leading two workshops, one at Fern Studio (a spring one is coming in 2015!) and another one at the Contemporary Arts Center. I just made a final one for my family's front door and now it's time to celebrate the season and the coming year. Happy Holidays, all!
Please join me for a flower pop-up shop the last Saturday of the month, at Fern Studio.
11 am - 4pm. 6040 Hamilton Ave, College Hill.
