'Twas right before Christmas

… Almost… almost Christmas time...

‘Twas right before Christmas floral art design

“... when out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,

Cymbidium orchid design

I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Rest a few mossy twigs over the design

Away to the window I flew like a flash,

Fold a few leaves in a zig zag pattern to support the orchids

tore open the shutters

Add a few red beads to hint at the Christmas to come

and threw up the sash…

Early winter design

… When, what to my wondering eyes should appear...

Poem by Clement Clarke Moore, A Visit from St. Nicholas (The Night Before Christmas) 1822

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.
