Today is all about flowers and love. I confess, I’m a romantic at heart. Beneath the brash exterior lies a puddle of *sighs*. (I think this qualifies as oversharing.) As for flowers, I love them too. Calla Lilies are my favorites–but any fresh cut flowers will do around my household. Early in my crafting days, I was obsessed with putting flowers everywhere. I think that’s a place we all visit. There were so many varieties of flowers in so many different materials that it almost became overwhelming. At some point, I have to say I lost interest in dimensional flowers. Maybe it was just a slight case of burnout. Nonetheless, I’m over my aversion at this point. I probably still don’t use as many florals as I did once, but now and again, there’s nothing like a beautiful bloom to put a smile on your face.
