Do you want the truth or something beautiful?

Ive had a lot of things on my mind recently, and I seem to be taking out my frustrations on making flower arrangements. I made 20-odd buttonholes the other day for a business conference to spread the word about Faith,Trust and Pixie Dust and they seemed to go down a storm. As floristry is a visual profession, I thought a way to stand out from the crowd would be to create buttonhole business cards in a twee wooden basket- much better than a single boring business card. Unfortunatly, I didnt take any photos of them (which I regret now as they turned out to be works of individual art) but heres a photo of one Ive made about an hour ago which was a similar design for the conference.
I also made this really funky buttonhole the other night when I couldnt sleep- and I think you can tell that my thought pattens are all over the place at stupid O' Clock in the morning as if you look closely the heart is actually made out of brightly coloured paper clips.I think it works well with the bright gerbera, and my mum pointed out all black paperclips with a red gerbera would look cool, especially for a Goth wedding. Take a look!

Ill put up some more stuff Ive made today soon, but Im off to find a late night snack and watch my dog run in her sleep!!
