My Creative Workbook

"The My Creative Workbook website started as just that, a place for me to capture my creative work. Over time talented and like minded designers noticed... and told their friends and they told their friends. The website has grown into a design resource used by flower enthusiasts from all over the world looking for unusual design inspiration and Tutorials. My book, The Effortless Floral Craftsman, a floral crafter's guide to crafting with nature takes the work I share here on my website to the next level. Which is exactly what my book is about, taking your work to the next level!

Mindfully designed to inspire you to say both :"I wish I thought of doing that!" AND "I can totally do that." No need for special vases, equipment or even a huge budget for tons of flowers. Just the mostly plant based, sustainable designs that made my work so widely shared and used by readers.
