Broken Record

September 2, 2009

I’m a broken record– more flowers!  My mother came to visit a couple weeks ago and she and my honey attended one of my theatre performances.  While sitting in the audience she whispered, “oh,  I wish I had brought flowers for her!”.  He casually replied, “Christen lives in a WORLD of flowers.  She is up to her ears in flowers.”  While I personally would ALWAYs welcome more flowers, I guess he was right.  I will not complain.  So here are some more shots from work.

FLEUR*TING

July 10, 2009

So sorry to have disappeared for– yikes– more than a month. I don’t know where to begin. Since there is way too much to post, I’ll just try to get some things up in little spurts.  I’ve been quite busy at work so I’ll start with a few of my recent creations there.  Here are 3 of the 8 arrangements I made today.  These are all round, low, and sweet.  Stay tuned for some taller, 1 sided treats.  As always, thanks for stopping by!

It’s been about 2.5 months since I started this blog and so many wonderful things have happened during that time. While I’m still not satisfied with the format, content, and focus of frutz, the sheer act of creating and updating frutz has focused me in ways I could have never imagined. The idea for the blog began with a flower arrangement I de-constructed and rec-onstructed the day after my 30th birthday. I’d like to announce that at the end of February I landed a job in floral design at one of the most fabulous, unique, and inspiring floral boutiques in San Francisco, FLEUR*T. I have been pinching myself for about a month and a half ever since. I am learning floral design on-the-job from the most talented designers I’ve ever seen. I am on my feet, not in front of a computer, being creative.

And to top it all off, the owners of FLEUR*T are supportive, encouraging, and flexible about the demands of my theatre career.  I think I may have FINALLY found the perfect balance of my work and creative energy: flowers and theatre.

I will update the blog periodically with my burgeoning flower designs…I’ve made some great ones already but don’t have any pictures yet. So as always, stay tuned…
