She shattered when I went to inspect this double-header, so I deconstructed to really see the botanical structure of the dahlia. @tiffanieturner this reminds me of something you’d dream up ❤️ .

I’m a lucky girl. I have three sisters. Nikki Joy here  came to my @judy_blooms_art_show this summer at @thegoodsupply. She knows exactly what to say to make me smile. Last night she texted me a picture of dance class. She captioned it, “there is hope for humanity”. Three years ago the good owner of @tophatiidance created an adaptive dance program for my niece. Last night’s session had new faces, bursting with joy, dancing their hearts out, belonging. My heart just overflowed. Out of some of life’s most difficult circumstances, my sister finds the silver lining and makes sure everyone gets a slice. I love her fiercely, I love all my sisters fiercely. We need more women like them. Hard working entrepreneurial women, doing the best they can, loving with all their might, giving their gifts to the world. Tag your sister or your sister-friend and tell them they rock today. .

The weather is finally turning! We’ve had a hot week. Last night a squall rolled through and soaked the ground and took the humidity with it. Thank goodness!!!! Here’s another iteration of my asters and mums course. I did this with 180 gram crepe from @castleintheairshop - I cut he flowers so no horizontal lines were visible on the petals. I styled with items from my pantry and woods! Paper flowers make decorating dynamic!! .

My huge mushroom find from a few days ago has an interesting conclusion. 
Yesterday I returned to the woods three times looking. I felt crazy. I studied the photos I took and found the exact spot. And wouldn’t you know it. The tree had fallen, the bark rotted off where the mushroom was and there was no mushroom to be found. Either we have a mushroom thief (and if so I applaud their tenacity in getting past our gate, mile long drive and dog, climbing our steep hill and actually locating the tree on the knoll). OR more plausible to me? Black bear found it, grabbed it, maybe leaned on the tree and crashed it. 
Such is life! I know for sure it was the right tree because of the photos I took and the strange markings on it and further up the fallen trunk I found a baby lions mane. I sautéed it in garlic and butter and yes, it does taste like sweet crab. It’s delicious. 
Oh and the last image? Also on the same tree. So cute. Not sure what they are. .

Fall is in the air! My week was a little (a lot) intense and finding time to “forest bathe” and inspect my natural surroundings is absolutely necessary for my self-care. I’ve been thinking of a little project for a while that has nothing to do with paper flowers....check my stories for the concept. ❤️

This evening’s find: Platanthera dilatata - Tall White Bog Orchid or Bog Candle! It’s a type of wild orchid that I found on our path to the pond. 
Today I unsuccessfully tried to find the mushroom from yesterday. We went into the woods twice with different light. No dice. I feel crazy except I took a photo. Where do they hide?! 😂 will look again tomorrow. Life is but a dream. .

From kindred spirit @lichitasdesigns ❤️ This a maker with paper flowers blooming in her blood. Both of her grandmothers were paper florists in Mexico. How amazing would it be to learn at your abuela’s knee! 
Hearing Lichita describe her childhood, listening to crickets and watching the stars, connected us. Both our fathers were farmers. There is something to be said for growing up surrounded by nature!
Thank you Lichita! ❤️

This was a draft - the final piece is different - I was looking back over my studio notes and images on my private Facebook group for patrons and marveling at the process that unfolded this summer. The creative discipline that was exercised by showing up daily for my patrons and my muse. I’m so thankful for these people who find value in art and creative thinking. I’m thankful for these patrons who value my education, experiences, and gifts. 
I’m especially grateful for those who paid for coaching calls this month. Education is an investment. Learning from a practitioner is an asset. Working with someone who can translate, simplify, and tailor your education to your needs is worth it. Thank you patrons for valuing both  my time and yours. You’ve given me so much. I’m excited to give you what you need. Who wants in on a winter group? ❤️
