FlowerarrangingwithAmanda - New Blog

Hi please checkout my new website and blog

there are new features coming soon, and the new Lavender Shed (and "The Dog House) spin off hosted by myself and my loyal woof Watson(when he wants to make an appearance!) which will show you that you can recreate that arrangement you have recently seen and follow me through my trials completing my floristry course, and learning new skills which will lead up to me fulfilling my dream of becoming a demonstrator.

See you soon.

Demonstrator Refresher Day

Attended a demonstrator refresher day in Solihull, met some lovely people. The teacher was Janey Hayden. A lovely lady called Janine passed onto me some historical items for me to use for my NaFAS Diploma. Here is my design and some of the others. Oh and Pat's trifle was lush.

WI auditions

I auditioned for the Northamptonshire County Federations speaker programme. I am awaiting the results, however have two confirmed bookings for next year.

A little find in our garden

We are proud and privileged that some birdies have chosen our garden to build a nest out of moss. I found it in the russian vine last night as i was pulling the vine down, it is all safe and we watched a small wren flit to and from it last night
