Welcome to Relax and Create 2022.
It's the inside of my brain, on paper.
This is a series of instructional videos for paper florists, mostly filmed Live on Instagram. The tone is informal, the learning is fun! I will add different types of videos throughout the year including the opportunity to review my next formal online course.
A note on videos that are archived from Instagram: You may notice I speak as if someone asks a question or enters the room. This is me responding to what happened during the Instagram Live.
Be sure to let me know on Instagram when you sign up here and I will add you to my close friends feed on that platform. I share SO MUCH of my studio behind-the-scenes there.
Thank you for being a patron of the series for 2022
