I can’t believe that it’s been over a month since my last update! There’s already the hustle and bustle of one of my favorite holidays of the year. I can already hear my favorite Christmas carols on the radio and I can see people have started to put out their holiday decorations.

It’s definitely been a very busy month!  My husband and I have moved to a new place and we’ve been hard at work trying to make this new place feel like home. I’m so excited to finally have my own studio to work on my pieces and I have definitely been hard at work now that I have the space. It’s a huge improvement from my makeshift studio on our “dining” room table.

We’ve moved to an extremely creative neighborhood where majority of our neighbors are artists. We literally have an artwalk that goes through our loft community once a month and it’s completely inspiring to see what my neighbors are creating and coming up with.  There are painters, floral designers, photographers, sculptors, you name it.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to open my studio to the public sometime soon=)

Here are some of the most recent projects I’ve been working on. I didn’t have too much creative flexibility because I was limited to my class project guidelines, but I’m happy with the results.
This is an arrangement of hydrangeas, roses and orchids. I was experimenting with bolder colors because I’ve been playing it safe with my previous projects.
This is a purple themed arrangement that consists of a gerber daisy, peonies and poppies. I especially like how the gerber daisy turned out, but I definitely need to work on my peonies.
I absolutely am addicted to working with clay and as I’m creating these pieces I’m realizing more and more how amazing God’s creation is. No matter how much I try to imitate his creation, God truly is the ultimate artist!
