How long have you been a Chapel Designer? I have been a proud member of the Chapel Designers for 2 years.
Where did you become a Chapel Designer? I joined in August at a one-day Business and Design Workshop at Holly's studio in Leesburg.
How has your membership in The Chapel Designers Organization affected your business?
I can hardly even count the ways that Sweet Blossoms has been affected. The biggest effect that I see is my confidence. Being surrounded by so many creative minds, all sharing their styles and and successes and failure....it pushes me to do better, to challenge myself and to keep reaching for and setting new goals for myself and my company. My personal style is becoming more defined and my business has grown substantially in each year that I have been a Chapel Designer. When I attend CD Workshops, I not only get to learn from amazing designers but I also get to learn a little more on the business side of things which is really helpful as a small business owner.
What do you enjoy most about being a Chapel Designer?
I love being around so many inspirational people. We are international so there's always a "flower friend" awake to give advice or just share stories. If I need help with sourcing something or have a question about a particular flower, there's always someone to talk to.
What are your hopes and dreams for the future of your business?
I hope to have a cutting garden and to teach someday! I love the idea of running out to the garden to add the perfect touch to the bridal bouquet I'm working on that day!
