Announcing the First Flower Therapy Class!

Flower-Therapy-Class-Winnipeg -- Winnipeg-Creative-Workshop.jpeg

I totally get it. Winter is taking forever. And every winter, I reach a breaking point: I just need colour, lightness, and something to take me out of my every day dull.
So, I invite you to join my in my first Flower Therapy Class! 

I want to share with you where this idea came from. Last winter, January and February were particularly stressful for me. There was something going on with my business that was out of my control (in fact, it was in the fairly pathetic control of Canada Post) and while it seemed like it should be a small thing, it was wreaking havoc on my business, and more importantly, my mental health. A very expensive parcel was lost in the mail, and the person to whom I was returning it was threatening to sue me for it. She is a small business owner as well, so I completely understood where her panic was coming from - she really needed that package. But aside from calling Canada Post every single day, sometimes several times a day, there was literally nothing I could do. 

I needed a mental health day. In a month that was nothing but dreary outside and the constant stress of this person's threats on my mind, I needed to escape my life for a little while. And for me, that came in the shape of a day playing with flowers. I paid a visit to my wholesaler, where I picked up whatever I wanted. I chose a light, fresh, springy colour palette and flowers that I simply gravitated towards. My time that day was passed with slow movements, acknowledging the entrancing details of each stem, gently placing them into arrangements that I made for no one but myself.

I know that I'm not the only one out there for whom winter is intolerable. I know that I'm not the only one who needs a mental health day now and again. And I know I'm not the only one who craves colour in the midst of these dreary months. So I'm hosting this Flower Therapy Class and welcome anyone who fits into those categories above, or any other category that you fit into. Come and join me, play with flowers, and leave with a lovely arrangement that will inspire you and fill your home with cheer.

Registration is open now - I hope you'll join us! Seating is limited as our space is pretty small so if you're interested, make sure to head over to the registration page HERE as soon as you can!

Studio Tour! Behind the Scenes of Stone House Creative

I couldn't think of a better way to kick off blogging on my new site than with a behind-the-scenes look at my new studio! Earlier this summer, my friend Aly from Victoria Anne Photography joined me for a little tour of where I work. My husband and I moved last fall, purchasing this house specifically because it has a second garage, in the backyard, completely set up as a workshop. All I had to do was unpack my vases and build my cooler! The space is really ideal and I'm so excited to show it all off.

#PEONY4PRESIDENT: FLOWER WORKSHOP WITH BOWS & ARROWS

Earlier this spring, I travelled down to Dallas to visit a wonderful friend of mine, Linda from Wedfully Yours, and together, we took an intimate workshop with Bows & Arrows (one of my floral design idols). Alicia at Bows & Arrows is the originator of #peony4president on Instagram, and she had so many amazing varieties of peonies available for us that I couldn't think of a better title for this post. I loved being able to learn from Alicia and her team, as well as work with some varieties of flowers that I don't usually have access to in Winnipeg. Peonies galore, as well as beautiful varieties of roses, lisianthus, scabiosa, bleeding heart, frittilaria, tropical anthurium (which I've aways been afraid to use but I love how it paired with the more romantic, ruffly blooms!), and sweet pea - so many of my favourites! It's hard to decide what my favourite part of our design day was - the gorgeous ceremony arch, or the joy pf placing each stem into my centrepiece arrangement. It all came together beautifully!

Dallas is a beautiful city, and this particular venue was absolutely stunning - it's an old mansion, which has been renovated into a hotel and is nothing short of extraordinary. I think we need something like this place around here!
