Just Like Wisteria Rain flower art design

Beginnings!

I have been writing designing thinking and rewriting rethinking redesigning my book for years. Every obstacle I ran into I used as an opportunity to rethink and make the book even better. For all this time it was up to just me to create every little aspect of the, The Effortless Floral Craftsman book as best as I could. This morning I realized... my part is done. I now give this task of creation to you, the reader. It’s a whole new chapter and, quite honestly, I can’t wait to see how you create it.

It’s with a very grateful heart that I say, as always:

Every good wish,

Christine
