Newspaper Feature and Love from my Alma Mater

Back in January, I was contacted by an Editor with the Metroland Media Group in Canada. She was working on a special publication to be distributed with a few of their regular publications.

I snapped some better pictures of the bouquet they were interested in including (the Summer Sunset Bridesmaid Bouquet) and sent them her way. The publication was sent out the end of January and about two weeks ago I received a few copies! There are some other great Etsy Sellers included in the article! Those pinwheels are so much fun! This bouquet has received a lot of attention. I have had it on display at a few bridal shows in the area and the brightness of the colors must draw people in. It actually just sold yesterday from my shop!  The article was sweet! The title was “Who says you have to carry flowers?” Which of course is a question I bring up a lot. Don’t get me wrong, I love flowers, but at the same time I love being different and standing out from the crowd.

It is great to see all of the unique elements brides are including. I have seen some amazing things, and not just in the flower department. I am working on a few posts for the future with some truly inspiring brides and designers.

Here are a few pictures from the newpaper that I thought I would include.

Recently, I was also contacted by my Alma Mater, South Dakota State University. At SDSU I studied Advertising. I was in the best program ever and the professors were all amazing. I have kept in touch with a few professors from SDSU over the past two years. I was really honored when I was contacted to be featured on the Ad Jacks Blog. It is nice to be recognized and especially from those who taught you a lot of what you know. I never realized how much I enjoyed the Ad program until I left and now I miss it all the time.
