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.

2 paper flower things

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

 

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.

Rainbow colours everywhere

I went down to a centre for a volunteer interview today. After how the previous interview panned out, this went very smooth. While I know it’s for a volunteer position, I don’t take it lightly.

I’m looking forward to have some mornings occupied with meaningful activities – the way I designed my life to be.

Though I told the coordinator that I’d want to commit for 3 months for now, if this suits my new rhythm for the year, I’d gladly extend the stint.

Side note: a little walk in the market near the centre landed me a suitable toolbox for the flowers.
