We are all in this together

Original flower arranging ideas

Note: it really did take more than one person to invent the trumpet!

In 1788 Charles Clagget almost, almost created the perfect valve mechanism which Heinrich Stoelzel and Friedrich Bluhmel then reworked in 1818 to create the box tubular valve giving us the trumpet we know today.

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.

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.
