My new classmates... and an RAK~


After stuggling with carrying my bottles of Prima's all over So cal, I have decided to adopt my good friend and fellow Primadonna Donna Salazar's buffet style flower assortment. I am not sure exactly how she does it, but through talking to her about how heavy my boxes of flowers were getting (I just added about 50 more containers!) she recommended I split them up. So now my little friends live in a cute bucket with similar colors. I think there are 15 or so buckets in total one for each color, plus grey black and white, collage flowers in bright and light, patterned flowers and leaves. I still have the rest of the flowers seprated by colors in gallon size zip lock bags to keeps these puppies filled! I am so excited, these buckets are sooooo much lighter than my box of bottles and paint tubes. I could seriously hold all of these with one hand if I needed too!
So get ready to play...this is going to be a fun holiday season full of gifts from the heart!!!
Also, I am going to film my tutorials this weekend. I intended to do them earlier in the month but due to health issues and the fires (we were not directly effected by the fires, but the smoke came at us from 3 different directions causing us all to get sick, again) I have to postpone them to this weekend.
Lastly, post to this thread for a seriously random RAK for a baggie full of flowers from my stash! You have till the end of the month, I will be posting the winners for the month on December 1st.
Thanks again!!!

    I can relate with you on the sickness. I have a preschooler who missed the last few days of class before Thanksgiving break and is still sick.

  18. I also store my flowers this way, but in clear boxes & it's much easier to find what I need or take them with me to crops. You can never have too many flowers right!? :o)
