Kuwi the Kiwi – Congratulations!

Kuwi the Kiwi

Kuwi the Kiwi – CONGRATULATIONS!

Kuwi the Kiwi…What’s this all about? I’m pretty delayed, but a huge Congratulations to Tikitibu for winning the People’s Choice Award, for ‘Best Medium Stand Design’ at this years NZ Spring Gift Fair! 

Kat Merewether, approached me to do some commission work, and boy was I a stunned mullet! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw her message! Kat is the author and illustrator of many poplar children’s books such as ‘Kuwi the Kiwi’, and ‘Kuwi’s Very Shiny Bum’. She also runs Illustrated Publishing.

In all honesty, I was nervous, excited, scared, and probably a few other emotions rushed through my body, as the messages between us continued! 

She had a sign custom made by Peg Creative, which she wanted me to work some extra magic on. 
Guess what?! The sign was HUGE! It was 800mm in diameter!!! It was so well designed and made, that is was hand delivered (from Te Awamutu to Tauranga), by Kat’s hubby! What a champ he is! I also think the sign was hand delivered from Auckland to Te Awamutu – but do’nt quote me on that one!

The brief I was given, was native flora, bright colours. 

Well, I did my brainstorming…I even bumped one of the flowers on my huuuuge ‘to make’ list, right up to the top, just so I could make it happen and integrate it with the overall design.

That flower, was a Kōwhai flower. From scratch, I designed my very own felt kowhai flower! And I was bloody well chuffed with the final design! These are being added to our online SHOP soon!

Native to New Zealand, the Kōwhai flower, is bright yellow, which bloom in Spring. Usually in clusters, on each branch, with gorgeous draping leaflets. Kōwhai trees, which can grow up to 25m high are home to Native birds such as the tui, bellbird, kākā and New Zealand pigeon/kererū. Kōwhai are an important seasonal nectar food source for our Tui, Bellbird and New Zealand wood pigeon/kererū.

So Anyway….

I incorporated the Kōwhai flower, fern leaf, and fern frond (koru), and pōhutukawa.
I liked the simplicity of using just two flowers, against the greenery, which I did in different shades, to add contrast.

As well as doing the sign, we did some vines, and few little other greenery pieces.
Each piece was designed, so that Kat could rearrange the pieces, for different set ups/shows etc.

And she was happy with what I had designed…(well so I think from her responses). Ha!

So I wanted to take this time to say Thanks! (because I haven’t written a blog for aaages, and this was all far too much info to write in one social media post).

Thank you Katherine! To you and your team – For trusting me to create such a piece (or pieces I should say).
Thank you TIkitibu! – You guys all did an amazing job of the set up!
Thank you Peg Creative! – For also trusting in me, with one of your amazing master pieces!

And of course, I kind of just have to thank everyone, for continuing to support me. All the likes and comments on social media, but positive messages and feedback, the raving reviews and repeat customers! You all continue to drive me, and inspire me, and encourage me, to keep doing what I’m doing. Thank you!
(And if you haven’t got a Kuwi the Kiwi book yet, go and grab one now instore or online!)

And once again. CONGRATULATIONS, on WINNING People’s Choice Award, for ‘Best Medium Stand Design’ at this years NZ Spring Gift Fair!

How I created a Bouquet for a Mother with Cancer, and her daughter.

A Bouquet for a Mother with Cancer

A Bouquet for a Mother with Cancer

A Bouquet for a Mother with Cancer

I was recently asked to create a bouquet for a mother with cancer, and her daughter. When someone mentions cancer, you’re heart instantly collapses. It is not nice, and whilst many do fight through and defeat the horrid ordeal, it still takes away too many people, and it often takes them away earlier than expected.

It is not the first time I have been asked to create a bouquet for a family dealing with cancer. And it is not the first time I have been asked to make one, in particularly for a mother and daughter. This bouquet represents many things and I wanted to explain it all in this blog.

My client, requested this bouquet as a gift to her friend and her friends mother. The friends mother has cancer. The cancer is spreading to the bones, and she may only have months to live. The flowers used to create this bouquet, each have a particular meaning, including the colours I used.

The brief I was given, was that the mother loves red, and bright colours. She is not a fan of pastels.

Favourite flowers: Roses, Tulips and Violets.

With this I went and planned out this incredibly special keepsake bouquet.

I started with the roses. I wanted those to be the main piece of the puzzle. Arranging a bouquet, is just like a puzzle. You need to make sure everything fits into the right place.

The meaning of the flowers, and the colours.

Now I don’t know this mother and daughter, I have never met them…but for me the flowers represented a few things.

For the roses I chose red. Red roses mean enduring love, passion and respect.
– the love between a mother and daughter
– the love that shows through the daughter and the way she supports her mother through this journey.
– the respect they have for each other.
– and possibly the respect they have for cancer.  I say this, because in order to fight this nasty thing called cancer, there must be some level of respect for it, because at some stage, you need to acknowledge, and accept that you have it (or that someone you love has it). Only then, can you begin to understand it, and begin to fight it.

I then looked at designing the tulips. This was brand new design that I have created, and brought to life.
I chose the colour orange for this flower on this occasion. Orange is a bright, bold and vibrant colour.
Orange tulips in particular mean energy, enthusiasm, desire and passion.

I wanted to use orange as a way to send out positive vibes.
– to represent energy, to have energy in the mind, body and soul, to fight cancer and stay positive throughout. I’m not trying to come off airy fairy, but I truly wanted to express those positive vibes through the flowers.

And lastly, purple violets express royalty, innocence, abundance and true love. 
– a mother to a daughter, can be looked at as a queen. 
– Both mother and daughter, are innocent. Innocent victims to that horrid thing called cancer. 
– and there is no denying, that the love between mother and daughter is true.

That is how I created a bouquet for a mother with cancer, and her daughter. 

This bouquet represents them and their journey.
Both now, here, today, in the living.
And one day, as the flowers live forever, so will the memory of this mother and daughter.

The ONLY felt florist in New Zealand!

The ONLY felt florist in New Zealand!

That’s right, this is the only Felt Florist in New Zealand! It’s really all in the title, honestly.
As we are mid way through 2017, I am still the only florist in New Zealand, creating
gift bouquets, arrangements, weddings flowers and catering to
corporate clients and the film industry, with felt flowers.

Amongst all the other florists out there, whether it is fresh flowers, silk flowers, paper flowers,
foam or flax flowers, I am the only florist in New Zealand working with felt.
At this point in time, it makes our flowers truly and incredibly unique!


New Zealand florist

I’m not here to bag all the other types of florists out there. In fact, if you already follow me,
you will know I have a very good friend Sema, who is a Flax florist at Hapene by Artiflax.
I often purchase hapene from her, to use in my bouquets and arrangements,
as I do like to incorporate different media into my creations.

I am simply here to say that if none of the other types of fresh or fake flowers take you fancy,
I offer an alternative to other artificial flowers. Because let’s face it, just like food,
everyone has different taste buds!


Whenever I introduce myself, and my business, the most common question is
“How did you get into felt flowers?” 
Well, in all honesty, I don’t really remember.
It seems to have just…well, happened! I don’t even remember the exact date! 

And when it did, I must have phased out my old work (with felt) pretty quickly,
because I barely remember that either.  
All I know was that I loved making flowers.
There was a whole different creative side to it that intriguied me.

Getting requests to make a certain flower challenged me. And I loved that aspect to it!

If this is your first time visiting my website, why not check out my portfolio,
and get your wallet ready to purchase all of my beautiful flowers in the shop!

It has been a very exciting journey so far, and each new day brings new adventure. 
I can’t wait to show everyone what else I can create!
Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far.

As I continue to build my portfolio, I would love to know what other flowers
you would love to see me make.
Leave a comment below and
stay tuned on my Facebook and Instagram pages.
I may just make your flower in the near future! 

 

Remembering a Loved One

Remembering a loved one

Remembering a Loved One

In 2013, Julia and Marcus lost their son Isaac. Yet, every day he is with them, in more ways than one. And they put a meaningful emphasis on special occasions to include Isaac in any way possible. Julia even writes regularly on a blog style Facebook Page called Remembering Isaac. So it was without a doubt, that he would be included on their wedding day as well. Remembering a loved one is a journey in itself, it is part of life, and everyone processes it in their own way.

 

In 2015, I was approached by Julia to create some felt flowers for their
wedding. She wanted a bridal bouquet, wrist corsages, boutonnieres and centre pieces for the guest tables, as well a special centre piece for the head table.

All of that was fine, and I was looking forward to creating unique floral pieces for their big day. The only thing that made me extremely nervous was the request for a special centre piece for their head table, for remembering a loved one. Julia asked if I could create a centre piece based on Isaac’s casket spray. And in her words she said “Morbid I know, but I loved them!” And I’m not one to say no, as I have nothing against that sort of thing, so of course I agreed.

 While Julia left me to my own creative license for the arrangements, there were a few things I had to follow, in her brief. This included a selection of certain flowers such as daffodils, centre pieces where she would provide the base/vase/mini bucket, and a selection of smaller flowers for her daughter. Now don’t get me wrong, every bride should have a brief for their florist, as it makes my job so much easier! But when a client or bride ‘leaves it up to me’, the nerves kick in immediately! It’s safe to say that with this particular job, I had a deep mix of emotions. Learning of Julia’s loss and her story behind wanting the flowers that she did, made me emotional throughout the whole process. As a florist I was honoured, to be asked to create such a special arrangement, and as a mother, my heart was heavy with both sadness and love.

I started with the main table centre piece, as the guest table centre pieces were going to be based on that. It took me a long time to finish. I doubted myself and my creativity everyday until it was done. I often had to walk away from it, because of the emotions that came through me, whilst working on it. Even though Julia acknowledged it wouldn’t be, and didn’t have to be an exact replica of Isaac’s casket spray, I wanted it to be perfect. I sent her photos often, of the progress, so that I could tweak it if necessary.

Remembering a loved one: It wasn’t just the flowers she incorporated in to their wedding day, which had a special connection to Isaac. She also included Isaac in many other ways, including personalised cuff links for her husband, from our friends over at KJdesigns Handstamped Jewellery. Julia also added personal touches to her floral pieces. With her bouquet, she added a butterfly, in remembrance of Isaac.


Guest table centre pieces doubled as gift favours,
for their close family members. 

A daffodil was used in Lily’s hair. (Their daughter).


Isaac’s Corner:

It wasn’t until later in 2016, where Julia shared a post on her ‘Remembering Isaac’ Facebook page, that I learnt of the final destination of the head table floral arrangement.

In their home they have a special corner of their lounge, called Isaac’s corner. It is here where the head table arrangement from their wedding day now sits.

Julia told me that whenever she looks at Isaac’s corner, and see’s my flowers, she ‘can’t help but smile’ every time she sees them.

To know this, warms my heart. I feel blessed. Not only to have been involved in Julia’s & Marcus’s wedding, but also to have been able to create something, that connects them to Isaac each and everyday. To have created something that brings out some form of  happiness from their grief.

It was at that moment, when all my fears disappeared. Whilst a new rush of mixed emotions hit me, I was relieved. A weight had been lifted off my shoulders, knowing that Julia and her family found comfort in something that I had created.

 

Julia, Marcus, Lily and Isaac, thank you! Thank you for allowing me to be part of your wedding.
Thank you for trusting in me, and believing my creative skills.
In was an absolute honour and privilege to create all the unique floral pieces for your big day.
It brings me joy to know that a piece of my work, will forever live in your home, and bring a smile to your faces.

Felt: Isn’t that the stuff on Pool Tables?

felt

But isn’t Felt that stuff on Pool Tables?

Well, yes, it is! However it is a different make up of felt that they use on pool tables!
Some can be made from natural fibers or synthetic fibers.

felt

I will list a few different types:
– Industrial
– Craft/Textile
– Stiffened
– Adhesive backed
– Wool
– Acrylic

Those are just naming the most common ones, and those that I am most aware about. Under those categories you can then go into subcategories such as wool blend felt, where the ratio of wool can again vary between brand and its mixed with another fibers of another material, e.g. 80% wool:20%viscose. On top of that again, you can also get various thicknesses!

The felt that I use for our flowers, is a wool blend. There is a particular feel and flexibility that I personally like about wool blend, which makes it easy to work with. I have trialed other types before such as acrylic felt (usually a cheaper option), which is made from synthetic fibers, but a lot of it was horrible and stiffer, with little flexibility. 

WOOL FELT

Wool Felt is a non-woven textile. There is no thread or weaving involved in production.
Originally it starts off as wool roving. Then by adding moisture, heat and agitation, the roving compacts
and mattes together tightly.This forms what is referred to as wool felt.

Wool felt blends (the stuff that I use), are also made using the same process described above,
but with a combination of wool fibers and those from another material.

POOL TABLE CLOTH

The texture of green cloth. High detailed photo closeup
Close up of worsted cloth.

The most common type of pool table felt is called woolen cloth. It is usually thick and heavy. It is made up of at least 60% wool, and has that familiar “felt” feel when you touch it. You will usually see this type of cloth on home pool tables, or the coin operated pool tables at bars etc.
The second most common type of pool table felt is worsted cloth, and is not even felt at all! It feels more like a woven suit, and when you look close enough,
you can see the weaves in the cloth. It generally doesn’t pill and you would most often see this type of cloth in professional pool rooms and tournament tables

I don’t want to go into detail about every other type of felt, but I did want to give those who may not have known,
a little insight into the range that is out there, and ensure you
that I don’t use the exact same stuff that you see on pool tables. Well not quite the same!

I do also have to mention that wool felt, is not to be confused with felted wool. Which is a whole different kettle of fish, that I’m definitely no expert in, but there are a few blogs out there that explain it a heck of a lot better than I ever could such as this one by American Felt & Craft.

Working with local businesses: Ink & Threads

Ink & Threads

— Working with local businesses: Ink & Threads —

I’ve had the privilege of working and collaborating with quite a number of other local businesses,
so I am going to start introducing you to them all. The first being Papamoa locals Ink & Threads. 


— Ink & Threads – Papamoa —

Ink & Threads specialise in creating custom designed pillowcases, tea towels, bags, cushions and more!
Their creations are printed on 100% cotton, using water based paint (perfect for little ones might I add!), and is printed direct to the garment. 

I don’t even remember how I found these guys. I think I recall seeing an ad of theirs on Facebook. (So ads do work guys!). I clicked through to their page and their website to discover something I had been looking for, for quite some time now! I had been searching for a local business who would print pillowcases and other items, but at a reasonable cost, and with very small minimum order quantities. I had struck gold! These guys did ALL the work. All I had to do was provide the design I wanted, and the colours. It gets even better…I could do this all online (using their online desginer), from the other side of the country! – I was living in Hamilton at the time. So as soon as I had sent through my design and quantities etc, all I had to do was pay for it, and within such a reasonable time the products would arrive on my doorstep! More often they arrived a lot sooner than expected! And thus our very own unique pillowcases and tea towels came about!

Allan & Niki have constantly provided wonderful customer service, and outstanding products. And if you need some help creating something, Niki is graphic designer and is more than willing to help you out.

— Q & A time with Niki! —

1. Who does most of the work at I&T (bit of a cheeky question)?
I’ll say ME, but my husband would disagree 🙂
2. What is your favourite product?
I love our customisable banners, they are a great alternative to the usual A4 prints.
3. When is your busiest time of year?
Definitely November/December for Xmas presents. Lots of Santa Sacks get printed!
4. Where is your happy place (outside of work)?
The beautiful Papamoa beach, 5 mins from home.
5. Why did you start your own business?
Freedom and flexibility, both in time but also creatively.
6. How did you choose the name ‘Ink & Threads’?
It’s from the raw materials we use to make our products – ink and cotton,
but also I like the fact that Threads also means clothing

Wedding Flowers: Fresh or Felt

Wedding Flowers: Fresh or Felt

There is no doubt about it, unless you have been planning your wedding since you were 6 years old, making decisions about your wedding can be a struggle. Well it is for me anyway…and even harder making a decision about wedding flowers!

I am new bride-to-be, only being recently engaged in February 2016. I haven’t always known what I wanted on my wedding day, so even beginning the planning process was hard. Big wedding vs small wedding, somewhere close to home vs. tropical island, fresh flowers or fake.

20150101_183130

My mum has worked in flower nurseries for the best part of 20 years, and I have always loved watching her many varieties of roses bloom in her garden, amongst other flowers. The few fresh flower bouquets I have received in my life have been gorgeous, and they have definitely made my day.

But as much as I love fresh flowers, I damn well hate it when they start to die. They start to turn brown and/or wilt, and it is depressing! Not to mention that I get hay fever, so pollen tends to get make my top lip feel like it is swimming in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!

Here is where I come at a cross roads for my wedding flowers, between having fresh or fake flowers. Of course, I can get as creative as I like with my very own felt flowers, but I would love to have a mix of fresh flowers, although, if I want to keep my bouquet, I would have to reconsider the fresh flowers (unless they were dried properly afterwards).

13096119_858503927592739_7384045568386102482_n

So here are my personal pro’s and con’s to having fresh and/or felt flowers.


Pro’s of Fresh
– Real flowers are beautiful

– You can get some beautiful scents from fresh flowers, creating a natural fragrance during your wedding day.
– They can be freeze dried, or dried naturally.
– In season flowers can be cheaper.


Con’s of Fresh
– Some flowers are seasonal. Out of season flowers may still be available, but likely to be more expensive

– They die
– Pollen can trigger allergies/hay fever.
– Unless you know how to dry them properly or get them freeze dried, you literally have no use for them afterwards.
– During summer or winter months, more fragile flowers may need care.


Pro’s of Felt
– Hard wearing, non-fragile.
– No need to dose up on allergy relief.
– No need to water.
– They will last for a very long time, if not forever, with the right care.
– Bridal bouquets etc, also make great thank you gifts, as they can also take them home as a keepsake.
– You could use your favourite perfume, to give a light spray on the felt, bringing scent to the flowers.
– Weather conditions will not affect them.
– If you choose to have a and tied bouquet, you can rearrange them after the wedding and display them in a vase however you please.


Con’s of Felt
– Depending on the amount of flowers, yes it can be expensive due to the amount of time that goes into making each flower, so the con is really only dependent on the style of your wedding, your budget, and design. (but then again, that kind of goes for fresh lowers too!)
– There is a bad stigma amongst some, that fake flowers look cheap.

 OK, so I struggled to find con’s for felt flowers. It might seem a bit biased, but from a bride-to-be perspective, and taking into consideration my hay fever etc etc, I do believe felt flowers can be a wonderful part of your big day.
I know that it is not everybody’s cuppa tea, but for those wanting an alternative to fresh flowers, definitely don’t hesitate to get quotes and ask questions about felt flowers.

The Price Debate

heliconia

The Price Debate

Some days I get emails, Facebook messages, or comments asking how much something is.
I respond with a quote or price.
Some days I get another email, message or comment, asking to proceed with the order.
Some days I never hear back…

There is always an ongoing debate within the handmade, handcrafted industry.
The question behind it (more so from customers), is, “why are you so expensive”?
Or for some, their response is, “I can make it cheaper”, or “I can get a friend to make it cheaper”.

Fine. That’s cool. If you can get a friend to do it, go right ahead!
Just know that you are selling your friend short if you do.

You are devaluing their time, and talent if you do.

Let’s take one individual felt flower, on a paper wire stem.

To start with I need felt fabric and the paper wire.
I also need scissors and a glue gun.
But before all that I need a car WITH petrol in it, that has a rego, and WOF too!
Just to go and get the fabric!

Now I’m home with all the items I need, I have to start the clock.
I cut out each individual petal by hand. None of this lay out the patterns, or scan and cut machine business.
(No offense to all my friends and family in business who work this way, I still admire your work greatly!!!)

Call me old fashioned, but that is how I choose to do it. That is how my items become BESPOKE!
Custom made. Unique. Individual. No two petals are the same! EVER!

1452203777328

To cut out one entire flower worth of petals, can take anywhere between 5 minutes to an hour,
depending on the detail of the flower.
Some flowers get extra detail added, e.g. with special fabric paint,
and let me tell you, that stuff ain’t cheap!

I should add that painting extra details also adds more time on the clock.

1452304892057

Now that the petals are all cut, I then have to assemble the flower carefully onto the paper wire stem.
More often than not, I burn my hands from using the hot glue gun.
But that is the because I am being vigilant with how the flower is shaped.
You don’t have much time to work with, when you are working with hot glue!
Oh and don’t forget, using a hot glue guns needs electricity!

After all that, we have created a flower.
A FLOWER!   ONE!  TAHI!
Just one.

So if you want a whole bouquet, the majority of that process has to be repeated.
Numerous times!

If you are wanting a mixed bouquet of flowers, then as mentioned earlier, the time it takes to make them can vary.

So next time you question the cost of something that is handmade, or hand crafted, consider what I have just said.

Car maintenance, house/electricity, desks, equipment, materials, labour.
On top of that, include things like accounting, advertising, insurance, postage, packaging, labels, cards
. The list goes on…..
Hopefully after all that, the maker actually makes a profit! A lot DON’T!
Every single cent of someones quote or price, includes more than just the obvious materials.

THAT is why something handmade, or hand crafted, is so ‘expensive’.

Hello 2016

Wow! So apparently it is year twenty sixteen?! And did you know or remember that 2016 is a LEAP YEAR???

I was blessed to see the new year in with my family. And by that I mean, I was in bed by 10:30pm and asleep by 11:00pm.  HA! HA! There was no way my children would stay up that late, and besides, they are too young to know anyway. My oldest only knows one month of the year, which is January. The other day (back in December), I started teaching him that his birthday was in January. He proceeded to ask me if we could go to January, thinking it was a place. Ha! Ha! Ha!

I didn’t really set any new year resolutions as such. However, I did find an image which I posted to my Instagram page – and I think it pretty much sums up my plan for the year. (Yes I did find it on Pinterest).

 fierce

This year does bring a slight change to Oh Em Gee. We will be focusing a lot more on our flowers, and less on the buntings and garlands etc. I am still a one woman show and with only 1 child in daycare and the other at home full time, I have limited time to make and create. I will take on very limited custom orders for garlands and other items, but part of the change will see us heading in a new direction over 2016, and my priority will be focusing on this change. I have a new vision for my Forever Flowers, but there is a lot of work involved, so we will see where the road takes us.

Obviously from this blog entry, you will now know that I have added a ‘blog’ to our website. For me personally, the blog will be a way to express myself a little more, (more than I do on Facebook & Instagram), get a bit more in depth on certain topics or products, and just a fun, new place to write, share stuff and truly be myself. But consider this a warning! You may start to discover the kooky side of me, along the way.

I won’t be a die hard blogger either! This is my first ever blog, so I am only planning 1 a month (with maybe a few extras in between, if I find time).

Thank you for continuing to follow and support Oh Em Gee, and thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Instagram & Pinterest. I am on Twitter too, but to be honest, I just link the same content from Instagram to Twitter. So many accounts, not enough time in the day. My bad!
