So two weeks ago I had some exciting news
to share when I was chosen to be one of the
Lawnscaping Design Team members.
This week I have some more exciting news
to share -- this time pertaining to my job.
I think most of you know that I work at
an arts and crafts chain store.
Well, awhile back (long story) we found
ourselves without a floral designer.
Then just before Christmas
a lady came in with a special order.
There was no one who was qualified to do it,
but I guess since I have a reputation
for being crafty they asked me to try.
So with fear and trepidation,
and zero training or experience
I put together my first floral arrangement.
And to my surprise, the lady LOVED it.
Raved about it.
So the next week when another customer
came in wanting another arrangement,
I was again assigned the task.
And the lady LOVED it.
One of my bosses called me especially
on her day off, just to tell me how thrilled
the customer was.
So when I came back from Germany,
my bosses met with me and gave me a new job title:
They know I'm new at this.
They know I'm learning on the fly here.
But they're willing to let me test my wings.
It's scary and exciting and I couldn't be more thrilled.
I remembered to bring my camera
this week, to snap a pic to share
of one of my first-week-as-floral-designer
And a close up.
A lot of what I used here, I recycled.
The white hydrangeas were from the Christmas tree
we decorated, the peach roses were from
a broken pot of flowers.
Then I just added a few stems that I thought
I know I have so much to learn.
But isn't it exciting? :o)
