Down the Rabbit Hole...To Down Under

Here in Ohio it has been one winter storm after another.  Wednesday we were hit with ice storms for almost 2 days.  Power was out all over the Tristate area, we were lucky and it was only out for one day for us.  But I know others who still don't have any, and here we are another snow storm coming down. 
Really we have been lucky, last year we had over 2 ft of snow several times  At least this year it is in small doses, making it all easier on us to shovel.  I don't know about you, but all this time in the house is starting to make me daydream of spring! 
No more of this being couped up, with dreary dark snowy days.  I want to see bright flowers, green grass!  I want to feel the warm sun on my face, and the breeze in my hair!  That is exactly where these next pictures will take you.  Down the Rabbit Hole to down under in Australia.  Where some of my playing card flowers traveled to become part of an incredible Wonderland Inspired event. 

 I just received these pictures the other day from an awesome event coordinator out of Australia who had ordered my flowers back in the fall of last year.  When I opened the email containing them I was in Love.  Such beautiful detail was put into every piece of this table.  From scrabble tiles that spell things, to plate clocks, stacked tea cups, colorful tea pots, mixed flowers that make my paper flowers look real!  Cupcakes and Cakes.  It looks like a place I would like to have a tea party for sure.  Wish I could have shipped myself with those flowers, and enjoyed this wonderful evening that was created too!  Simply Magical!!!
Head over to his site for more information on having something magical created for your special event!  http://www.bellelaideevents.com.au/
 

 Thank you so much Mark for sharing your incredible work, and stunning pictures with me!


January has been an incredible month.  Unexpectedly I have had over 100 sales!  I just received my first order of over 1,000 flowers for a wedding scheduled for the summer.   Super excited about that!!!  Getting ready for a show Next Saturday, February 12th at Beans and Cream in Cedarville, Ohio.
Lots of new flower designs and colors are being added to my store regularly!
Gearing up with lots of new colors for spring and summer.
Here are some  of the yummy new styles!

New Colors Include:
Lemonade Affair, Beach Glass, Summer Lilac, Love Letters, and French Lace. 
Coming soon, see the write up on these flowers being used by a design team of 15 here online called.  Ready Set Create.  I am excited to see what they have to say!! 


 


Recently I received an email from a customer inquiring about HUGE paper flowers.  (Actually she was one of 6) Accompanying her email were some incredible pictures from a Chanel show held in  2009. 


So I decided to try my hand at some Huge Flowers. Starting out I just had to use whatever paper I had lots of. Dictionary Paper.  Then moving onto some roses made out of Bazzill Bling Diamond Cardstock.  The First one measures 11" and the second about 7". 
 



























Well that's it for today, before I give you information overload. Hope everyone has a great weekend! Enjoy your Super Bowl Parties!
Till Next Time!

I don't know if the 1st comment took so here we go again.
Love the paper flowers. I've been watching youtube recently since becoming interested in making my own. The white one is gorgeous!
I was visiting Moxie Fab World when I saw your card- then I noticed your last name.
My maiden name is Eccles and you rarely see someone with the same so I had to visit your blog, which I thoroughly enjoyed visiting.

WoW Beth, that is awesome! You are right, it is pretty rare to see someone with that lastname. Wonder if we are distant cousins of some sort? I have only met one other Eccles that I didn't already know as family, and he lived out in Utah. Truly an awesome experience! What are the odds of that? So glad you stopped by to share!!!
