The Beautiful, soft colors are a delight to have placed here in our home, and it will be sad to see them go, but the whole idea is creating an enjoyable experience for the buyer! With Christmas soon approaching, we even managed to sneak some Christmas items into this line, along with one or two wedding wreaths as well, tricky, because, wedding season is primarily in the summer from what I understand.

Wedding Centerpieces

I attended an interesting forum this evening at the Famous Swanky Naples Hotel here in Florida on the coast. It was very nice, beautifully decorated, and full of people whom are trying to get there name out there, such as I am. The Forum was for Networking and Marketing Techniques. Focusing primarily on Online blogs. A gentleman spoke about WordPress and how it is an effective way of reaching out because the Yellow Pages have become Obselete, and more people are referring to search engine marketing everyday. I was able to add examples of how this all has helped me in the business very very much. I wasnt privy to the knowledge tonight of how many business owners are behind in the Online aspects of Marketing their business. I felt flattered as they complimented me on how advanced I was, and wondered if I could help them. Since I love to write as well as create, I found it an amazing idea to do some affiliated market trading, also known as Site- Linking, in which I help them so they can in turn, help me to get my name out there. Last night, I finished the Portfollio which was excellent for the meeting today as well. The Association was affilliated with The National Association of Wedding Planners.  I talked to very interesting Caterers, Entertainment Specialists, Fellow WordPress Bloggers, and Florists. They all have different creative ideas of course, those in which they provide a service called “Destination Weddings”. This is a fantastic idea dor a convenient One Time Shop!! Brides have a lot on their minds about the best days of their lives, why not make the details precise, unique and easy while putting the trust of your BIG DAY into an experienced persons hands? Genious! I was able to search many tips I was given by my fellow entrepeneurs, and this enabled me to make the business overhead less than ever!! I realized that just as much as Floral, entertainment, and decor, wreaths can be a way of standing out and floral oils creating a unique, noticable aestetically pleasing atmosphere.

I was fortunate enough to display our portfolio to these people who had never seen articles from a “Blog” before in their lifetime, as all these years, most had been using the paper forms and high overhead to reach out to potential patrons. In this day and age, expecially with the invention of such technological tools such as the IPHONE and higher,  a world where 10 years ago the internet being an evolving technical tool sounds almost unimaginable. I was lucky enough to have the time and energy to be able to research methods of utilizing what is out there to help the needs of my buyers. What do they want in my product? What qualities are they looking for? What quantities am I able of supplying over X amount of time? The whole business mentality of doing something so different, unique, and it being what you love has its defenite advantages, you just have to be on top of what your doing technoligically, and keep ahead of what the world is going to throw out at you next. I realize after tonight, that these forums are going on every day all over the world, informing people of these wonderful tools that we are gifted by technology. Pretty soon, they will start charging for these services… and up on the times entrepeneurs will sit  back a linger for the days where we used to have blogs for free, sites for free, download music and videos for free! Social Networking is still in an experimental phase and soon will be behind the next innovation, so we all benefit greatly from utilizing this sign of the times.

I have decided to donate a Wreath to a organization called “Open Arms” I am very excited as it has the name of one of my most famed wreaths. From what I understand, this is a feature given to businesses whom whould like to “give back” to soldiers and families who are fighting yet still for our freedom overseas. I am absolutely open to donation, and I cannot wait to look into this oppurtunity further!

Start Spreadin the News!!

I have safely arrived in New York, to the 59 degree temps, and cloudy, rainy weather. Perfect for the kind of day we were looking for. While trucking this morning on a mere 2 1/2 hours of sleep, Eddie and I fell into the crisp temperatures by warm blankets and a solid nap. Waking up to a great action movie, complemented with some fantastic Chinese food. I am still in those blankets, maintaining comfort while reaching out to the followers and checking status on the business.  While there may be action with me not out the shipment center, I have someone at home in Florida, awaiting order confirmations to be able to still send those precious wreaths that are every ones favorite to enjoy. We miss our dog already though, as she will probably be more spoiled than ever while we are away. Not sure if it is the food, or the thin mountain air, but I didn’t realize that I was so tired! I have been devoting every waking moment of time that I am awake to making the business better, more convenient to use for our clients. The wreaths more potent with more diagnosis, stronger potency, and specific attention to detail. All while managing the blog, the website, press releases, Emails, Orders, Invoices… and not to mention, wedding events, holidays and other get togethers… I can’t wait to get an assistant to take care of some of the workload, I just have to get over the perfectionist attitude so that it doesn’t burn me out. I Love every minute of it all though– that’s another part of the issue I guess. LOL. I spend at night thinking of how I can make things better as soon as I wake up in the morning, and I don’t dare go to sleep without something essential that I might forget not being recognized. Crazy, huh? At any rate, after this day of relaxation, We are off to Toys R Us to pick up a gift for Baby Angelina- Im pretty excited– I Love shopping for the lil tots!! My precious nieces and nephews remind me of how blessed I am, its a real naturalistic joy to be able to spent any time with them ever!

I have to share this, its hilarious

Just started New Diet… Not excited

A couple of years ago, we here at the wreath connection dieted and lost a total of 134 lbs!! Here, about 4 years later, we  are about in the same boat as we once were, and have started a serious eating, sleeping, and excersize change for the better, and so far, we are doing great.. this diet is very similar to the carb diet only we are incorporating different fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, salad ect. So far it has been a lot of coffee drinking to curb the appetite, but not as hard as previous times, and we are looking forward to excersizing to feel that boost we miss so much along with better sleeping habits. All around its good for life, love, the business, and peace of mind before the big move to New York!!!

Connectology

You ever walk into someones house and can smell this refreshing scent of apple pie coming throught the house as if you standing over the barrel of boiling skinless cider yourself? As most of you know there are two sides of the brain, one in which is rarely ever used. Out of all of the senses, your sense of smell is the only nerve stimuli that goes directly to your brain, never having to take several detours  first. So essencially,  your sense of smell is most powerful, serving as a highway that often creating images next to make a vision of something so complete, that now, you don;t even have to see something– your nose paints a picture for you!

You’ll then notice that  the further you walk into this house, you will see the same house you always see, as a living room is there, a kitchen… maybe some stairs, but, where is the pie? The peeling in the bowl on the counter? The cinnamon spice, the nutmeg, or  glaze? Crispy, buttery crust rising??

How about waking up  a morning after a long night of work,  being sick ( or taking care of someone who is sick), tense about an interview or a test? You wake up, go to the bathroom, brush your teeth, and then walk out to the the aroma of fresh coffee brewing on the counter, with every drip you think of the tired, extra hour of sleep and how good it would feel to have it. You pour the cup, listening to the sound of the fill, watching the steam rise spiratically towards your nose, adding the fixins; perfecting it to taste.  Ahhh, to sit down and enjoy the feeling of comfort in liquid form, that burst of energy that heats up the cells and makes them fit for focus for the lingering afternoon ahead.

What is it about the sense of smell that has such a deep impact on the mind?? Whatever it may be, The Wreath Connection is tapping into, and if not get to the bottom of it… we are testing these findings to their very limit. Granted, we are not scientists, but do know enough about the powers of psychology and  sight, that when powered together can promote these feelings that are simply unexplainable.  Even when you get “conditioned” to a scent you are used to smelling,  going up to one of our wreaths is all you would need to have the shower of positivity to start looking at the days ahead in a new light.  Imagine having the power of eucalyptus to send your mind on that long awaited vacation…. The smell of coffee to give you the energy and focus on that day when you don’t have the time to have a cup, and your running out the door. A Spring harvest of fresh berries and may flowers in the dead of winter, or to set the mood for a special Easter Dinner, a family visiting from out of town. Its the way you live your life that creates the moments, its our wreaths that take care of the feelings of excitement when you don’t have time, or simply just want to take that extra bite out of life. Enjoying every little aspect of the vision of your home as well as its natural aromas…. what people think of when they remember the comforts of your home. Our wreaths hold aspects of remembering special times in our lives as well. We are making everything right now from baby wreaths, to soldier wreaths with charms of wooden first footsteps, and replicas of badges and colors of a soldiers uniform and tags. These wreaths are being created with the scent of lavender for a childs favorite color or comic… a favorite scent of shoe polish to commemorate that special soldiers time out on the field. Right now, we have a wedding/ anniversary wreath done with the fresh scents of vanilla and chamomile, dashes of sweetpea and clean cotton, covered in sweet charms of love and faith.

Point being is, this is an ongoing research investigation. We are leaving no stone unturned to make these wreaths known to all as the beautiful and healthy piece of home decor with meaning, with life, with love, with character, to make each house a home for the family that resides in it and shares there memories around it.

Please Visit Http://www.wreathconnection.com

Research in findings of the connection from the brain to the nose and vice versa, have prompted us to include eucalyptus, homeade potpurri in colors and hues all through the spectrum of the rainbow, all of the scents of almost every fruit, dessert, coffee blend, plant… that there is.

I share a memory with you…

Growing up, my parents loved to do things the long way when it came to vacations or recreational leisure. As a child, these were some of my fondest and closest memories that I will think back to forever. As you read on my storesite on my homepage, I go one about growing up in the country, and living in a owrld completely unaware that there was anything outside the diameters of our lil Pennsylvanian town in the mountains except for the beutiful landscapes of Maine, where my we would go to visit our family members who lived up north.

A fond memory that I often think of… and Love to re create  as often as I can, is, our fire ring in the back yard on summer nights. There is something about being a child that is so innocent, that the practice of something so much fun, is something that when gone without for too long, you grow up to miss. As a daughter born later in life in the family, most of the group gatherings around the fires in the yard ended when I got older, as family grew older, and my generation of the family started having lives of their own as well.  I think of those fires, listenig to a cross between country music and oldies- baking “Mountain pies” in the hot coals below. When it was time for bed, I would always sneek a peek of the adults from my bedroom window to see why it was always sooo important for me to go to bed ontime. As an adult, I was able to uncover all those secrets, as knowing that when “The kids go to bed” that was a time for our parents to let loose, and let “their” hair hang down. As a teenager, I remembered the parking lot being full, the ost beautiful of days, the games that adults as well as children would play such as egg battles, water balloons, and 3 legged races. The family would gather around the fireplace for as early on back as the old films on the reel were being used. We actually had to have them transferred to VHS in 80s, and eventually to DVD in the 90’s, whereas, I have a feeling in the newer era… we will soon be transferring them yet again to Blue Ray..lol.

Please Visit My website to see my business. Its at : HTTP://www.wreathconnection.com

And let me know some of your favored memories. I would Love to read them.

Saw Ice-Capades Tonight

Oh, I am just so excited. Tonight, at my tender adult age, and saddly one of the very few people never to have been to The Actual Disney World before… I was invited to go to The Ice-Capades (Disney on Ice) tonight, and it was Fabulous! While I havd never seen any iceskaters before until tonight that were not on tv, those tricks were the cake… and the caracters were the icing on it. I was there with my neices and nephew, there were 7 of us total, and I held my 2 year old neice in my arms and watched her eyes get as big as golfballs whenever mickey happened to skate by. They knew all the songs, and it was just like a concert for the adults. The music was wonderful, oldies, newbies, classics… just a really great talented performance with singers, dancers, skaters, pyrotechnics, and the cutest excited children everywhere to create a spirit of excitement and fun had by all! If there are any of you who haven’t seen professional ice skaters live before… now is the time to see them, The tickets are not that bad as where you sit, you are always able to see as in most are in stadiums, and you will never forget the experience!!!

Alert though…. If you decide to go, make sure you have dinner BEFORE the show starts… as here in the country even, the snocones were 10 dollars a piece!! With 4 kids in tow, that can be a bigger event than ever dreamed—

I hope that you all are able to check out the Disney on Ice, It was beautiful!!

Spring is sleeping

Tonight I attended this fabulous festival of lights to study the ancient beliefs that people would practice certain superstitions that the spring was sleeping for the winter, and this was why the leaves fell off of the trees and annual flowers were OK, for not blooming for a season. It is the time of year that we all start hoping for that indication of whether or not there will be six more weeks of winter. Although from what I hear, this area hasn’t seen a winter like this in years, and as the ice melts there are portions of the rooftop that is leaking due to heavy winds and thick ice, I believe that superstition holds true that in a few more weeks the ice and snow are to melt and mother nature is to wake spring up again to bring us into a wonderful comfortable summer. Now, I am not sure what summer in New York is like, but I remember from the few times that I have visited, that it being warm in the sunshine, but being cold around the skyscrapers because of the shade from the tall buildings. Tonight, after the festival, I sat back and thought about the house in which I will be living in when spring comes. It always makes me nervous at a crossroad in my life and you know that everything is about to change. Don’t get me wrong, I Love change to the point where it is almost weird sometimes, however, I get excited about stability as well. In the house I may be moving into, There is this beautiful white kitchen. In that kitchen there are these old, tall wooden framed windows, with a tree in the sunlight. In the morning, I have never seen or bee in a more beautiful kitchen to wake up and have coffee while staring out the window to the city that surrounds it. The New York Post is plentiful, as are the people around the neighborhood. The yard is a nice size for the city, although, in the house, theres a lot of steps, it couldn’t hurt me to put the exercising forth. It makes me want the spring to sleep longer as time is running out for me to be frightened of a city sooo much bigger than myself. Moving is never fun either, especially when it is from a 3 bedroom 2 floor house full of your things and no way to carry them, pack them store them, when you have been living in Pennsylvania in the comforts of the home that you grew up in. I am a person who loves sunshine. I love the beach and the sounds of waves hitting the shoreline. I love big events to get excited over, learning new, and positive things. Of course I plan on, when I move to New York utilizing my advertising and marketing education from college- I just want to be able to have a comfortable lifestyle- Like any other person out there. I guess life is all about risks, no matter if you stay in the same place for a long period of time or not. Not being married or having children at this time in my life is enabling me to put myself out there and it be ok to make a mistake now and then. One day, putting myself out there is going to be the greatest decision ever made, and the business and the career will all fall into place. I just want to be in the right place at the right time. I will enjoy things with change a lot more once the dust settles and spring wakes up- leading us all into a summer that is well deserved. I will make special plans to have me time everyday, that will enable me to clear my head to make sure that every decision is well thought out and analyzed. I am aiming to take better care of my health. as this trip to PA has taught me that at the end of the day, there is nothing more important that the health of yourself for you and the people that you love, no matter how expensive or scary it may be. I am going to devote most of my free time to The Business. I want to move ahead with it all the time. I am going to look into advertising venues that will get me seen by more people and potential buyers, if not, possibly, open up my own shop in NYC once I see what the rents are going to be. I have to familiarize myself with The subways, the streets, the letters of the stations, the prices for tickets, and the times where it is safe/unsafe to be and when. Cause remember, I have only ever been there twice before, and from far away, it feels as if I am walking into a completely dark room. My positive response right now to the move and the business is…The weather will be getting better and better everyday, and whether I get my own place there or not- Warm weather always brings out the best in people.

Whats beautiful about this experience

We here at the WreathConnection always try to check out the little things that are often times overlooked in appreciation whats out there in nature that is beautiful.

Today, we noticed a spectrum of different colors created when mixing out ingredients for the homemade potpourri. Beautiful vibrant colors from oranges, reds to blues and purples… utterly fascinating!

Milk hitting your coffee. The swirls make the vision so hypnotising sometimes, you just never thing to watch it log enough before it all blends in.

Salt and Pepper hair color: what a story it has to tell, a person with this hair color always reminds me of what in life they have achieved, things they have conquered, places they have been. I think it is beautiful when something so simple can tell such a story of triumph.

Frozen forests: Although not too big of a fan of their affect, when I moved to Florida 5 years ago, I missed the vision of the land here in PA  just after the trees in the yard had frozen over, a beautiful white embellished vision of grayish blue tones underneath a crystal clear blue sky.

Candle wax; As it drips dry slowly, I look at the drying drops of wax build up after a long burn. Stacking amongst each other in an orderly fashion almost as if something somewhere was telling them where to go, drying to a point of lava-like beauty.

Just a couple of little things for you to notice today that are sure to make you smile.

Please check out my business: The WreathConnection at http://www.wreathconnection.com

Piece of Mind… Never leave home without it!

We are watching the rant on Christian Bales Tirade on a poor, innocent crew member on the set of one of his new movies “the Terminator”. Now, I am not one to trash talk, but, if any of you out there saw this on the news today… you will understand what I am thinking! In hard times such as these, can you really chalk this mans arrogance as “He was just having a bad day”?? Unfortunately this world, money creates how much power you have which creates self worth in many instances. Some people are very humble, and take it very well, others…. not so much. I have only ever heard of Christian Bale in the news as I was a huge Heath Ledger fan, and was delighted to hear that someone was going to take over his role in an opportunity to save the movie that Heath had previously started. This actor. Christian Bale, has been so overpaid, and sucked up to, that he took the chance of thinking that speaking to someone who is a hardworking human being as the rest of are profoundly in this manner was justifiable. The incident had happened in July… it had not even leaked until now. We just recognized today that people with more money than what they can handle really do turn the cheek when it comes to their power and how to use it. I. like everyone out there would LOVE to be wealthy, however, I would never stoop as low as treat anyone as bad as this. Everyone is still human, no matter what they own materialistically. We all came from the same place as far as I am concerned.. Shame on Him!!

Pride

The way that I look at the atmosphere around me, it speaks as a statement of… “This is who I am”. My Home in Florida, as I have mentioned in previous posts is an procclamation of all of the places in life in which I wish to travel someday. My home here in pennsylvania is covered in country style artifacts collected over many years. My bedroom here is done solely in all of the wreaths that are or were posted that were my favorite. It is a wonderful expression of aomeones pride when you can walk into their home and be able to tell of their pride for their family by being warm, inviting, peaceful, storytelling. I love to hand wall art. I would say that it makes or breaks a motif in someones home, but that is just my humble opinion. You see in homes, old fashioned, and you can see that they love earth, classy tones, they enjoy history and patriotism. Some people have a very modern decorators. They have decor that is very sheik, this tells me they like the cutting edge, risktakers, dealbreakers, and vogue. The packrat… this home tells me that they have always loved everything they have always had and have a deep appreciation for things, everything has a significance… kinda neat… kind of a bad habit at the same time..lol.. Some houses are both modern and country, the architecture in these homes is usually always key, however the smallest of homes can take on this traditional favorite. While there seems to be some old fashioned, it is combined with a balance of equal sheik which makes this family well- rounded, not a single corner to shave down… Innovative yet private… what does your home say about you??

Here is a picture of a kitchen I found off of the internet of a typical country home courtesy of Blogspot.com… the only thing it is missing is, a wreath! Enjoy-

It’s Snowing…Again..ugh

You guessed it.. The flakes are a fallin again here in western Pennsylvania. As a couple nice days served us well and enabled the business to go shopping and crafting…. Here we are, a mere 36 hours later freezing, and feeling the house shake as the snow plows thrash by. The good news is that we were able to finish a very complex wreath this afternoon. The bad news is…well, it was too cold for us to go to the basement for our daily workout for starters, and according to the weather channel, it is only to get worse in the days to come. I am grateful to be working from the business that is so close tohere, because if not, we shutter to think of traveling too awful far. The roads look bad and seem to be getting worse.  To any of my cold weathered friends out there, make sure you stay warm, as it looks like we are in for another rush!!!  Ugh, summer or Florida can’t come soon enough…. either at this point… just something to thaw the tips of my fingers to enable me to manufacture my ideas for the business!! LOL

“What doesn’t Kill you Makes you Stronger”

I have always found it interesting how life will hand you the most terrible day ever, and then turn around and make you the happiest person in the world. I am human, and like everyone else, I have bad days… The company stays consistently good, and always just feels as if it were all meant to be, but everything else has more strain on some days than others. I believe this is what is putting me in the direction of soul searching and establishing what it means to be independent again. When I have a bad day, I do all of my happiness excersizes, and then I step back to reflect on how far I have come since the last time something happen to make me sad ):

The great thing is that when things are good they are really great, and if life has taught me anything so far, it is that it’s too short to take anything or anyone for granted.  It makes me a bit more analytical of things maybe, but, it helps that next good day come so much faster. Vanna, a friend of the Wreath Connection, once told us to make a list of every good day, and every bad and to step back and compare the ratio. Since her wise practice suggestion we had decided for the last 3 months to test the theory and see if it pans out to try to fix some of the mistakes that may have casued the negative experiences… whether it be adequate preparation, procrastination, woulda, coulda, shoulda’s– Sure enough, first month was bad, second was better, and this month has been the best so far. Turns out, we never pay attention to the reasons we have bad days, and so the mistakes happen over and over until they are redeemed. So that saying is definitely true, we tested it, and statistically speaking… What doesn’t kill you… really does make you stronger!!!

Joyful Masterpieces

There is really nothing like recieving a special something from the heart. We all know that it takes a lot of time and effort to actually sit down and think through something creative to show someone that you care as opposed to going to the store and picking something off the shelf. But, its like that age-old term… What do you buy for someone that has everything??? I have some people close to me that are extremely hard to buy for, either it is because I don’t see them enough, or its just that I know that they have a prosperous lifestyle and if they want something… they would just go out and buy it themselves. The new line is exciting because I have crafted these new ones in such a way that you can actually see the time I put into them to personalize, and to make sure that they are all unique especially for that person who has everything… I can guarantee that even a craft addict is not going to have something as unique as these hanging already in their home. So the answer to your time given gift idea is… a wreath from the wreath connection. Not only are they carefully constructed with homemade potpourri, scented with highly researched oils and herbs for great health and pleasure…. but they are created with time, love, and skill, to ensure that special, meaningful expression without saying anything at all!!

Sneak Peek…..Here only—

Ladies and Gentlemen… I am giving you a preview of a lil something I just finished this evening from the new line…. It is not offered on the storesite yet, as I am just offering a sneak peak as of right now…It is called an “Anniversary Wreath” and is made with Clean cotton potporri, deep green eucalyptus, and beautiful sayings that surround it such as happiness, me and you, Our fairytale, forever, togetherness (to name a few) It is a perfect Valentines day gift, Engagement/ wedding gift, gorgeous decoration for the church if planning a wedding, or even Hanging in the home for personal use in rememberance of the triumphs that you and your spouse/significan other have made it through!! When the site is unveiled this particular item will be free shipping, and will be available (once this one sells) upon reservation only… will be available in bulk as well…. And Guys…. It will cost about as much as would for a dozen roses, and a box of chocolates…. Keep coming to the storesite to check on if it is posted, and it will be revealed within days of the new lines introduction! Feel free to comment below, and as a reminder, the storesite is http://www.wreathconnection.com

Wreath Connection’s Lost Obsession has taken a new Turn!!

As you all know from previous postings, we just love ‘ Lost” the show on ABC on Wednesday nights… Well, due to the whole Office move, we can now watch tv while doing our crafting, so we can now watch our “Sawyer” every week while at work!!! As he is now our screensaver, he will be a visual part of our blog and Social media work as well. (:
Hey, I know….. We just love stuff that makes us cheerful!! Shout out to Josh Holloway as “losts'” Sawyer!!!

Take on the Hardships

It seems as thought the views of the world are taking on their own personalities anymore… Single women are having 14 kinds, olympic gold medalists are smoking pot, the economy is in crisis, and we can’t even eat peanut butter!!! However, there is a silver lining through all of this. With the advanced technological achievements of the modern world, people have been soaring through life on a pretty easy path untill now, and they say it is only to get worse. I would say that now is a time to make yourselves comfortable, work as hard as you can- no shortcuts!! Reak the benifits of family, friends, and quality time.
Business owners, create a surplus of valuable items, so that when all this is over and things are prosperous again, you will be fully set up for success! Use this time to practive invoices, inventories, and research with different companies that handle your supply goods.
Preparation, and a calm confident mind will exude positive energies and pay off in the end… I guarentee it!!
My focus is to help make the world stay happy, stress-free, and comfortable… and I am working on that one wreath at a time!!!

Giving them what they want

Unbelievable as it seems, people are strickly driven by what they want. While watching the news the other day, I saw a story on the New York Executives who got millions of dollars in corporate bonuses last year alone. How long has that been happening for? How is it that we were paying 5 dollars a gallon for gas at one point, and these execs who dont even have to drive were buying things like airplanes… and taking luxury vacations for weeks at a time?? I find on here at wordpress that everyone works hard, has a dream, and is willing to work every hour of everyday to make their dreams come true… I know, because I am one of them… I have decided to make my site free of shipping and handling after tonight… I just want my dreams to become a reality, a jet would be nice…. but accomplishments are the richest feelings in the world in my opinion.
