We might have ordered a little too much at dinner.

Paperblooms bouquet drafts

I’ve been working on a couple of bouquets for loved ones and the process of learning how to wrap them has been pretty fun.

A white ranunculus, a mini red one and a red bud, with black wrapping

A pink ranunculus, white mini one and a white pompom, with white wrapping.

4 peach/pink ranunculi, with white wrapping

15 peach / pink / white ranunculi and pompoms with white wrapping.

These flowers make me so happy.

I chanced upon this interesting read on paper flower history this morning.

And… I think I might have just found my favourite-est (because there’s no superlative that’s that super) crepe paper flower artist yet. #paperflowergoals

 

Reads

I’ve been reading ebooks and listening to audiobooks intensively in the past few weeks, all thanks to Libby. I’ve gotten through many titles, including:

  • Designing Your life
  • In Order to Live
  • The Kinfolk Home
  • Grit
  • A Pale View of Hills
  • 1Q84
  • Quiet
  • Good Morning, Midnight
  • Northanger Abbey
  • How to Win Friends and Influence People in a Digital Age

Creating insta stories of noteworthy ideas and quotes has become quite a habit and I’ve gotten so much good stuff I just need to share.

Blooming

About 2 months after I thought of a name for my paper flower brand, PaperBloomsSG, I find myself struggling to keep up with orders from my close friends. They’ve been so supportive and sweet to request paper flowers from me.

I’m still working on my production system – it’s easy to do 1 or 2 and perfect them, but in bulk, the control is more difficult to be consistent.

While that’s an ongoing challenge, here’s yesterday’s fringe flower, a bunch I tied up for a friend (who got 8 sets from me!), and the big bunch that I’ve worked out over the past few weeks. Immanuel’s guitars as props for the bunch and props for our living room.
