Flowerona Reflects: poppies & paintings
Well, the week started off with snow flurries and bitingly cold temperatures, but at least we had a little bit of sunshine too.
The last few days have been really crazy…not only work-wise but also at home, as on Monday, building work started at our house.
Here’s what I’ve been up to…
Monday, Thursday & Friday
Mostly stay-at-home days writing blog posts, dealing with emails, editing images plus using Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. I also sent off images and copy for some guest blog posts for Laura Ashley.
On Thursday, a new advertiser came on board with a banner advert on the right hand side of the Flowerona home page.
The company is The Flower Card Company and I’ll be telling you more about them in a blog post soon.
It was such a lovely evening and so inspiring to hear how Shane first became interested in flowers and how his career has progressed.
He was responsible for creating the beautiful wedding flowers for Kate and William. And also for Prince Charles and Camilla.
