Blossoming like a Caterpillar

A short note of gratitude before our design for this week:

The effortless floral craftsman book release ratings on Amazon

The Design Room edition of my book The Effortless Floral Craftsman was officially released on 23 March 2019. With your support it made its debut at number 16 on the best sellers list and number 2 on the Hot New Releases list for flower arranging books! I am overwhelmed in the happiest ways.
Never have I been more proud of being able to point to something and say: I made this!

Thank you for all your support, encouragement and well wishes.
*** update: by end of week the Effortless Floral Craftsman climbed to number one on the Hot New Releases list and number three Best Sellers list!

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
