My small business career began with the discovery that I could fashion wild grapevine wreaths harvested from the nearby woods and sell them in specialty stores. I progressed from plain and “primitive” wreaths to decorated grapevine accessories.
From grapevine, I ventured into fashioning wreaths from dried [everlasting] flowers and fillers. This progression was also life-changing. The fragile, botanical nature of these creations fascinated me. I soon discovered that the only way to afford a large everlasting wreath was to grow my own materials–purchasing them was expensive and limiting as far as variety was concerned.
That is why this simple craft became life-changing. I now grow and harvest over 90 herbs and everlasting flowers. My profession is filled with rich and fragrant experiences with these natural elements. My work is my lifestyle–and my lifestyle, my work. I would have it no other way.
