Fear of Flying

Tonight I am restless, thinking about the business and our well deserved vacation this week. I have been up all night the past few nights reading, to try to tame the thoughts in my head that re circling around my aura. A lapop is a blessing, however it is a curse at the same time. It frees me from holding the thought I have in, but, keeps me up all night venting… As most of you know, I have just reeased the new fall line, put it on an incredible sale. Between Etsy, here, blogger and like 5 other social venues, I am finding myself wondering what is going on with the net while Im workig on the wreaths! I lay in bed, tossing and turning thinking about ideas that come through that I am studting in my mind from the anxiety of possibly not being able to remember those ideas in the morning. I think about random things as well, such as.. the dress that Michelle Obama wore at the inauguration made the artist an overnight success with people lined up around his block to recieve glimpses of his other designs. What can I do to get that discovery? That certain stroke of luck running wild digging me out of this (just above water) mode that is this harsh economy. I will turn once more andpossibly throw a leg over a blanket to think of Economic stimulous plans and how banks can fail and pay their executives top dollar and fly them around in corporate jets for private parties… and I dont have health insurance? I have been reading a lot lately, some is what I call Fundamental reading for pleasure purposes, and the other half of spare time has been developing internet media and design kills for a new business I am lauching soon in Web development and advertising. The Librarians now me by name as I stroll through their halls at least once a week. Then, Comes my trip this week, while I could not be more excited, nd anxious about seeing my family- experiencing the familiarity wit childhood friends and the comforts ofhomebase surroundings, I am distracted from my slumberess thought by listening to a loud jet engine pass over the house. This sound, so deafening that its hard not to think about anything else other hat the huge plan flying overhead… at 5 am?? I fly often, but everytime, I wonder what if? What if they lose my luggage again like they did on Christma Last year? What if the hurricane gets closer and we are delayed? What if it comes while we are there and cant get back in time for work??? zI know, I must sound loopy… itis 530 AM and I am still awake, babbling in my blog (which I love) about thoughts circling my path. Speaking of path, I just designed a website for my mom that you should all ceck out– its called YourSpiritualpathways.com- and its not quite where we want it to be, but certainly on its way. I think my lack of sleep has something to do with the tea I had earlier (: Thanks for keeping up with me- check out the wreaths if you get the chance… they are so fabulous! WWW.Wreathconnecton.com and feel free to comment if you would like- I could use some cushioning to me new fear of flying (:

Feelings and Memories of A Northern Fall

I was just thinking about how quikly the days pass, and how much different it is in the fall with the kids in school and all. Here in Florida we do not have the privledge of seasons, and one of the things I miss the most about PA is that when seasons change there, the leaves turn this beautiful color of orange, red and yellow, and the wind that passes through makes this snarly hooing sound. Its so much fun as the energies of the first days of school come through the towns, all the kids with their new schools and supplies. The sound and smell of the school buses that had been on hiatus for the last few months, blend in with the smell of dead crumpled leaves that fly across the street. As the fall months pass by, the the trees only get prettier and prettier while football season runs its course. You hear the faint sound of highschool bands practicing their trumpets and drums through the surrounding woods, echoeing off of the mountains. Closer and closer it comes to Halloween where masquerade is ok, and children get to swim in the best kinds of candy! A secret society of children speak of “which houses are giving the best sweet goods” and the parents and tweens pass by on the street. Excitement of great scary movies and insane adrenaline rush make the blood circulate quickly waiting at home beside the freshly buttered popcorn. A mere month later, Thanksgiving approaches, gathering all kinds of friends and family to go around and enjoy delectable goods that can only be enjoyed once a year. Ensuing conversations of memories of that passing year, and everything to be thankful for. While all full and tired, you retreat to the couches to watch the years best football games, napping in and out of each quarter from all of the turkey. I love fall as it, as a seaason passed almost in the blink of an eye. here in Florida, they all try for the same concept, but most locals have a hard time understanding what the true feeling of fall is like. They miss out on the leaves gorgeous shine off of the cliffs the leaves give in the crisp cold air, as they are given palm trees and 90 degree heat. Most costumes for halloween are light and thin, so that children do not overheat, and complexes run so close together that a child finishes their trick or treating even before it gets dark. The heat proves exhausting. The chocolate melts as they walk, putting a flame under them to make it home to enjoy its solidity. You still get to enjoy haunted houses, as it doesnt matter where you are from and the boos and ahhs still run fluent. Disney right around the corner, hosts a Horror night expedition that is sure not to miss. Special effects and fake smoke covers the neighborhood of Universal Studios. A secret pass enables you skipping line privledges that ensure you are able to see every house and all of their themes. Masquerade a favorite still amongst adults, however most would rather sit at home with air on high, waiting to pass out candy instead. So the fall brings something different for everyone, something personal from every attatched memory. The new line just unveiled yesterday, is an product of the personal feeling that fall gives to me. Years and months pass and it seems my memories of up north never change, they just get more vivid, as the feelings of fall down in Florida are filled with beach visits and seashell themed dishware. I tried to bring the old ,charismatic colors that scream out their holiday, their season, and overall charm. The warm scents and festive coloring display the energy and passion you would expect from the above… first day of school, the adrenaline from all of the candy, and the crispness of the air passing by your nose. I chose the colors in representation of a Northern fall, yet a southern charm. I hope that everyone is able to enjoy the wreaths personal affects, as the feelings rub off in the pictures almost. make sure to visit, and look at the line at WWW.WreathConnection.Com

Halloween Wreaths this year-

Deep Dark Chocolate Potpourri DreamAs much as for fall in which we absolutely love, we made some space in the collection from our favorite holiday, Halloween, by throwing some unique oranges and yellows into the mix. None are kiddie however, as this is a trial run to see how they go over, but, the pristine quality, texture, fragrance, and aesthetics of these pieces are just absolutely breathtaking.

Its time everyone! The Fall Line Unveiled!

DesignersBlend
I am so excited, and after countless hours of hard work and dedication, we are finally able to unveil the end of summer/fall line. These turned out better and more beautiful than ever, with photography so delicate you can capture almost every detail from their slides sponsored by Flickr and Picasa! I know this is one of the moments that most of my followers have been waiting for, as the colors that were made available to us this summer were so amazing!! 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. Make sure you all check out my videos at Evelynsopenmind at youtube.com. It has some interesting information about the wreaths, their origin, some of the secrets to making the potpourri aromatheraputic, and even some tutorials on how to make the lowest overhead with tons of possibilities over the internet like I have- if you are a small business owner. So, go check out the goods, I am sure to it that you will have one that you just fall in love with!

A Fantastic Week In Social Networking

Hello Everyone, This week has been explosive in information reguarding the world and its current events, also of great importance to us, the small business owners of the World. First, with our baby, our business, we have had an exceptional week in design and sales. New information turning around for us around every corner, promotional and marketing venues for us are on the rise! While we are pleased to present an eventual launch of a sister site for the creation of websites at A Womans Touch @ yolasite.com we have just finished designing a site called  Your Spiritual Pathways. Com for a Lovely ladie up North! As for as New additions to the wreath collection, I have been mentioning for several weeks now that we are creating new lines for the fall rollout. Up in coming, we are looking to have a gallery opening around the beginning to middle of October, with that, of course, the photography will be updated and the wreaths will be out there for al of our nations to see! Furthermore, we are announcing a video collage of commercials that we have put together for you conducted through several of the interviews done by previous clients, very interesting, and of course, brought to you in part by, Youtube- the greatest internet outlet out there! We have been negotiating with Home Depot and Michaels in giving us the oppurtunity to conduct a once a week class on business marketing and wreath making… I think I may need to add a notorieter to the staff eventually as well with all of these legal papers and signatures floating around!!  Of course I am still looking for an assistant, the ad that I may go and edit after this post as a matter of fact, I just do not think people trust Craigs list as   much as they used to, I can see why the terms “personal assistant” would seen a little threatening. I met an incredible business woman the other day who lives just down the street here in my own private Wisteria Lane, who was able to enlighten me on the benefits of going through small business’s to display my products locally, I feel that if that venture plays out accordingly, then I should be able to rent or lease out some office space here soon… I think that Naples, doesnt even see me comming… I am really hoping that this idea in Aromatheraputic aesthetics will change the ways, styles, trends, and benefits that they recieve from their home, expecially in an economy still loicking its wounds from an outlandish previous year. Delving into a personal area of the blog, this week, Eddie and I went on to mourn the passing of a young boy whom is a friend of the family that used to work for us ( some currently do ) at the restaurant. He was 18 and lost his life last week in a tragic car accident, so viewers, please pray for their family, as it was a very sad evening here in the household. On a brighter note, my stepdaghter has her appointment this week to  find out exactly what she is having, and I will be posting the pictures from Eddie and I ‘s Anniversary getaway last weekend to Key West, so stay tuned for those!!  In sperate Personal news, in my free time, I have been enjoying the fruits of Author Stephanie Meyers handywork while taking in some great reading with the Twilight book set. I have just finished the first and am on to the New Moon- This book and the previous are so well written and hard to put down that they take my mind completely away from the scorching heat as it kisses my face in the dog dead heat of summer, and the view from my balcony makes any breaks I take with the chapters even more fruitful- I am very anxious to get to Eclipse, the third in the series, however, I find it bittersweet as I do not want it all to end! Watching the Twilight movie after reading the book was nice, but didnt do the book justive in my opinion.. I even got a Twilight Bookmark!! Up until then I was grabbing anything I could salvage to save my page, my creativity in this matter was quite amusing!! I don’t know if I had mentioned in a previous posting, but my work computer is on the fritz these day, so I will not be able to update the actual website until later next week- but have no fear, the interactive information that I will have for you will make it very much worth the wait and anticipation, therefore, if it seems at all that my grammer and or punctuation is posting oddly, trust, I am familiar with my grammer and spellcheck, my laptop is dated from 1932 and will be the spoken one until sometime next week— I apologize ahead for that.. beggars canot be choosers though, and I was very vlessed that my old computer was working enough at all! So make sure to check out The Wreath Connection. Com, Moms site- YourSpiritualPathways.Com, and then a new site I am branching off of the ol’ career tree AWomanstouch@yolasite.Com!! I hope to see comments from all of you sending me your thoughts, wishes, interest and opinions- Chao
PS…. The Newsletter will not be coming out this month according to plan- all of the information for the log in to that account unfortunately went with the hard-drive ): Working on resolving that issue as well… as we speak!
XOXOXOXOXOXO
The Wreath Connection

Im coming out with these ideas like Wildfire!!

It is so bazaar, Its 7:45 in the evening here in Florida, and I just spent the day out shopping for unique crafts, when I checked the mail and to my surprise, I had received yet another invitation to a small business group meeting here in the area. Fantastic to me, because I am able to talk about my business and get the message out from others. Also helpful, because it all helps me to learn from any mistakes that they had made in their business. I had decided to hire an assistant for part time work for the business, as they are coming out so beautifully these days, I have a strong workload ahead of me in finalizing their descriptions, fragrances diagnosis information, the research, the postings, the editing, and all of the on-line, and bookkeeping work. My passion is making the wreaths themselves and seeing others bask in their beauty… Not so much going throughout he tasks in informing everyone of their nature. Blogging is the favorite night time habitual business ritual that I will never put into anyone elses hands no matter how successful the company becomes…

At any rate, I had found some amazing materials today, and I am in the process of downloading the music for my ipod, so I can flutter into pure relaxation while I create these new wreaths for the up in coming line. I have a feeling that Christmas is going to be an amazing time for the business, as I can see many people purchasing these wreaths for family members. Having one a lone, I have witnessed can change the appearance of  an entire room, which creates enormous flattery by itself on my part. (; These ideas are based upon flowers that I have found that share the best qualities in beauty I have ever seen, its funnyecause I had never considered myself much of an artist untill recently! To look around and see all of these gorgeous timeless keepsakes, and to sit back and realize the love and mood that I have infused in each one is just absolutly gratifying to me. I simply am biting at the bit to post them, so make sure your there for when it happens, I will be sure to keep you all informed. In the meantime, the newsletter is about to come out on the 25thagain of this month, e mail me or comment me your email and I will add you to the monthly mailing list… Have an amazing night!!

How many wreaths can I make in 1 day?? (;

I have been working tirelessly on the wreaths for the up in comming new line out this fall, and am so excited in what I will have to offer that ideas are running wild like crazy through my mid here in these dog days of summer. As I have some interesting youtube information out to e released soon, I have come across some of the prettiest flowers on sale at the local craft stores here in town. These are flowers with big, silk bulbs in the bottms of their pits sprawling from an assortment of delightful colors making expressions in  my head!! A fantastic opputunity for me as the creation specialist to get involved with some of the pieces an themes for the year ahead. As our economy recovers from an outstanding financial turnaround (hopefully) I am so confident that the mood for this season will even be 10 times better than the last!

We finally have gotten our order for specialty boxes in which is fantastic, and we are putting an ad for Craigslist today!!  So the answer to the headline is…. as many as my hands will let me create!! I know it sounds like an teaser from an American Idol episode, but the ides are flowing like the great Niagara!! Stay tuned!!

On Youtube Conferencing

I am still feeling my way through the You Tube arts of publishing and friend making, and over this afternoons vanilla flavored coffee, I am surfing this wonderful videos and how-to tutorials on what makes a business worthy of its name conferencing on abreast of subject matter courtesy of evolutions own device known as You Tube. While other small businesses are a product of their own hard earned money, I have been using the skills picked up from the Internet to address questions and theories established through research to help others navigate through the world wide web to get their messages out to the people in the small niches in places so small as the mountains of Ireland for Instance. In this specific case, they wouldn’t have to travel the world to get a sense of what old fashioned living in the Americas was like, but only to experience the decor and the stories behind it by witnessing the craft at its truest form, which are the wreaths in which I have established.

Many different avenues have been taken to navigate a path through this incredible journey. One as useful as Youtube has helped me greatly, as eventually when sales drive higher, I will be able to show my own tutorials on how to make your own essential oils through the arts and mastery of a crafts diagnosis, entailing the ways that a specific artifact on display in ones home can create the feel of calmness… this, unbelievable to some, even me at times, is such an incredible breakthrough that travels way beyond the theories of general home decor.

My business doesn’t mean you have to throw a party for the item, or even make any calls of pressure to your friends on spending money they do not want to spend. In these days, a Lil bit of cash goes a long way, and in the art of living, sometimes after food, there isn’t much left in the form of commodities, or rainy day money to be spent frivolously. I depend on the consumers word of mouth and the art of the Internet to reach people far and wide. Creating a phenomenon that, essentially, speaks for itself.

The Wreath Connection on Social Networking

We, here at The WreathConnection are consistently looking for new and different ways to get our information out there. To lend an ear or any conversation is always invited, adored, admired, and welcome.  Sometimes we tap dance around other world issues to remind our readers how much we are humans too, and how our opinions are sometimes given the position to be heard. In digressing, or pondering the different facilities to utilize, we are often times faced with different decisions as to how they connect with our business, and at the end of the day, what really matters to us, is how we can help you. Social networking is like second nature to all of us bloggers, but fact of the matter is, it is actually very new and sometimes unheard to many business owners. This is a presentaion of hinder for all business owners “Ahead of the times” so to speak. It is only a matter of time before others are catching up and we must prepare ourselves by going steps further to enhance quality, precision, and accuracy of timely posts and deliveries with our outgoing posts.

I have a couple meetings set up next week in which I will be discussing different ways to get noticed on the internet, I am anxious to share with fellow  business owners the gifts in which took me sooo very long to utilize here on the internet. I had come to realize over time, that the number of free ways to really reap the benefits in an astounding way was really at the tips of my fingertips, and also at everyone elses.

Consistency the Best Policy?

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!

Beating the heat for Fliers

The WreathConnection is seriously considering beating the heat this afternoon and venturing out to hand out fliers for the business, and the uncovering of the website. Internationallly our site has recieved so much recognition for its detailed descriptions of different wreaths and their diagnosis. We are anxious to reach the public of the Americas to enrich the focus of Modern healthcare as it is today, and spreading the phenominon of Aromatherapy as it blows up into something rediculouslt serious for the well being of our and your surrounding communities.  Here in Florida, it is a muggy, humid, 85 degrees, and even the pool is too hot to swim in, fact of the matter is, these fliers are not going to pass out themselves, and it is essensial for the well being of the company and their discussion value.

We here at the business have been thinking of opening some business oppurtunies as an employer while setting the standard, by having people do commission only sales in which they are in charge of wreath distribution reaking in some of the benefits of their surroundings, while sharing a percentage of the profits. This would be incredibly helpful as though the economy is still reaching new and wonderful heights, we need families and business people to be talking about our outstanding services at The Water Cooler…. Lets work on this (:

The Wreath Connection Mourns Michael Jackson

We sit here, still in shock, mourning the sad sad news of our favorite American Icon of all time, Michael Jackson. We shed a tear as we all sit here and reminice the amazing times we have all shared to all different moments with his angelic voice in the backround. Many of our wreaths and ideas have been inspired by old 80s Michael, and this shock is utterly devastating. His Dance moves and rythyms have touched society for Generations and and Generations to Come. We saw on CNN that he will be moonwalking his way to heaven. Today is a day in history that none of us will ever forget. Masses and masses of people are sitting outside the hospitals right now awaiting official confirmation, and it has been said that he was in preparation for 50 sold out concerts in London, and came through his vigorous physical with Flyong colors. U*h, The Man in the Mirror, Billie Jean, Thriller, Beat it, Dirty Diana… the list goes on and on and it sends goosebumps up and down all of our spines. The WreathConnection will make ornaments and wreaths to honor this amazing musician, who has touched our souls and lives with his talent . God Bless him and his family through thistroubled time.  Stay tuned to the site for possible products in his honor. WWW.WreathConnection.Com

An evening in New York City

After some relaxation and heavy downpours, I sip my third glass of sparkling raspberry wine- getting ready to show off the newest you tube commercial to the Brooklyn fam, and lay out my outfits for the weekend. I must say, I keep going back and editing the photos for the new line, and brainstorming ideas for upcoming creations while leisurely watching A Day in The White House on NBC with Brian Williams. I Enjoy New York City. Just this morning on my JetBlue flight, I was welcomed into the city by a digital broadcast of The Today show, in which one of my personal FAVORITES  Dave Matthews performed. The other night while I was in the office tying up some loose ends and invoicing wrap ups before the trip… I was listening to AOL radio while listening to him in the back-round, so, it proved to be ironic that he was in concert on Today this morning. Last year, when here, we were lucky enough to catch David Archeleta and David Cook right after the winning Finale of American Idol. I think while featured the size of an ant on international morning news, I fealt closer to fame than ever, as it was my birthday to boot, and my favorite took the crown just mere days previous. I think I called every family member that early New York morning, to see if they could catch an even “glimmer” of my excited, childlike, Beatles outlook on the occasion.

I have also been contemplating an offer that comes in July for a table at a convention, in coordination with the planning of weddings to feature the centerpieces of course, and then the wreaths themselves which we feel would be perfect at the end of Pugh’sin churches and chapels across the country, I am going to present a portfolio in which I will show examples of how beautiful each wreath can look on each location. Different aromas will reflect the persons intentions for the events as well. I just found a great lilac oil, and I love it because it smells like my grandmother used to smell before she passed in 1992. Whenever I use it now, I feel as if she is creating right beside me, a piece of her with me that tells me… “hey… this is looking great, good for you” or “Someone is  going to cherish this piece so much.”  The Press releases have not returned any replies of questions from the media, i was expecting a larger response, however, with consideration of the newest surge in Gas prices, I cannot be surprised at people who are even negligent for a second that by responding, they may be getting themselves into scam mail replies, or bogus mailing lists. We have a shipment coming in a couple weeks,  at this point, I am planning on donating some of the wreaths to different charities and magazines. People are mesmerized by how they look, its hard to trigger the sense of smell from all the descriptive words in the world.  I am continuing  the submissions to Vacation rentals, time shares, contests, company functions, ect. I feel that being involved with the community is going to play an important part of this up in coming  journey. An exciting thing about donation is that someone, somewhere is going to benefit from it greatly- and there are times where that’s what it is about, giving back. I am going to write a list this evening of some new recipes in essential oils, and then I will probably add a list of new wreaths for creation in the next month or so, and (YES) I know, its my first day of vacation, My other completely tuckered out on me and is snoozing with the sheep, and so, I have some focus time in which to think through the creations and diagnosis will benefit others the most, Present Research is the answer to all Societies past questions……

First Day of Hurricane Season–

A Hurricane here in Florida is kind of like a trainwreck, you hate to see it, but you must look. Mother nature, and all of her mysterious ways, lends us a hearty dose of unusual winds and thunderstorms each year- mixed with flying tree branches, some stray lawn furniture, and possibly the utilization of the heavy aluminum shutters we still have installed from last years season…lol. The plus side to this season is the warm breezes that follow, the unusual clouds, sky colors, and temperatures, and above all the sleep during a tropical storm has never been better. I am looking forward to this years season, for the business, it is going to be a prosperous one- Relaxing raindrops and thunder are going to pave the way for the flourishing of new flowers that succombed to the drought, and open the passages for my creativities to shine through.  The Darkness of the shutters, will help to keep the house cool, and comfortable- this will lower the electric bill, which will in turn provide more money for supplies.  Eddie and I ( My Boyfriend) have thrown around the idea of having  somewhat of a gallery opening  this summer which we are planning, and next week I will be traveling back to the beautiful city of New York in promotion for the site.  I would like to eventually become a possible vendor for home decoration specialists preferring interior designs. A new age upon us,  the generation x is soon to become y and styles are changing. People want to be comforted in their homes at it is the place that they return to every night, it is the place the possibly raise their children, it is the place they sit around the dinner table together in their hectic, busy lives.  Some want modern, some want country- all with one common denominator… They all want class and that is what my wreaths have to offer. While the business specializes in aromatheraputic wreaths, we can also provide unscented ones as well for those who love us but have allergies that rob them of the rights to enjoy their truest beauty.  I had an amazing breakfast, a wonderful morning of news and the days events, and ideas freshly streaming from my caffienated  brain. Wedding planners are in contact recently- the centerpieces are the topics of discussion. While it is a lot of work creating 25 to 30 centerpieces, it proves to all be worth it in the end.  Yesterday in the trials of my research, I was able to learn some new diagnosis oils for different ailments in the body, and the YouTube Video is getting consistent hits, which is a nice feeling.  I will be updating everyone on Twitter today, as usual, to include everyone into the journey, as promised- I hope the start to your day is as good as mine is- and make sure to check out the site at http://www.WreathConnection.Com

Just ordered in, expected a great Friday Night

I just ordered in some delicious food, and am looking forward to writing here, and comming up with some new ideas for the upcomming wreaths. The newsletteer has been a great success, and you can never write enough of thos suckers, I have only been blocked by one person, and that, to me is something of a blessing, considering how many people I entered in. I have old friends from my old place on the other side of town that may come to visit me tonight, and they are full of wonderful, imaginative ideas. I have created a couple new fragrace oils this week for ailments, they really seem to be fantastic. I am patiently waiting for my office to finish being renovated so I can work out there. Untill then, its looking like I may have to work in the house here. Quite promising here in the air conditioning from the Floridian sunshine. Navigating the internet has been a fruitful experience as well, finding all sorts of venues to try all different sorts of things that help the business. Have a good Friday Night as well, I hope yours turns out eventful and pleasurable!!

Roses

Happy Birthday to Me!!

Happy Birthday to Me!!

My boyfriend got me roses this week for my birthday and to celebrate the continued success of my business The WreathConnection.Com.

What do you think about this?? Your Gonna Wanna Read This-

So I have been thinking about Family and its importance a lot lately. I eventually am looking to incorporate them to the business, but I am waiting for a solid foundation to work. I read an interesting post today about those who are complaining about the economy are not bustin to move forward. I do not necessarily agree with that.  In the last couple months, my business has been recognized by people from all over the world. Basically because, I am not just the face of someone starting their own business from scratch with all of the efforts in toe, I am a person whom I hope can serve for motivation to anyone that is out there following their dreams. My family and friends have been amazingly supportive with my ideas, expecially since I feel that with all this I have tapped into a revolutionary tool that I do not think has been researched or uncovered before. Expecially when it is something that I enjoy so much as spending my time on things that create beauty and charm. Things that make a house a more comfortable place to spend nights in as opposed to spending 20 dollars to go to the movies, or having to fill your tanks with gas that is on the rise gradually. For instance, walking into a home lit with beautiful scented candles creates a feeling of warmth and comfort that I find unexplainable. I, myself found myself habitually buying refills for plug in air fresheners and cheapee sprays to fill the house with comfort for maybe a couple days or with the sprays, even just mere minutes.  This collaboration came to mind when I got sick of paying for all of those things month to month… so I decided to start making the wreaths, then, making them with a message. A Message that reaches out to everyone, who, like me was on a budget- and I imagined for me how much money it has saved… and in the long run- how much it will save them. Although its been a lot of work and dedication, the hard work is paying off. I am so proud of myself and all that I have accomplished with the business. I have lost 48 lbs since October of last year, and still been able to keep striving for my goals for the company in the meantime. This way, I have been able to incorporate all of the skills that I have learned in College- and still do something that I absolutley Love. I worked in a restaurant for a long time. Through college and even before that. You learn a lot from seeing how people react in certain situations, and you defenitely have experiences that you never forget. I remember a customer throwing a menu and silverware at me because I dropped the paper his order was on in the kitchen, in oil, and his meal was late. Screaming profanities at me in front of his family, and a room of an estimated 50+ patrons. I had never fealt more embarrassed. Catering parties of 60+ while the host following us around, shoving things into our hands, yelling at us to go faster as the sweat rolled down our poor cheeks. All for enough money to buy gas and food for the way home, to get up first thing in the morning and face it all again. I realized one day, that after all the studying I had done in school, and all of the hard work and dreaming I had put into previous projects… what about this was making me stay?? Wasnt the money, wasnt the kind patrons, wasnt the sincerity ( I said the same things, and had the same conversations with everyone) What exactly was holding me back from stepping out there and showing the world what I was capable of??

So that is exactly what I did. I enjoyed the quaint silence of putting these pieces together. I reached out to professionals to absorb some tips for a refresher course on the marketing and Advertising aspect, but I enjoy it all so much- it was in the bag.  I left my job at the restaurant and decided to go my own road. I had already been familiarized with social networking, and promotional work from some classes that I had taken for my major, so I had the right skills to make something like this work. I still ask for pointers now and then. I believe that the writers and readers on wordpress, often times are full of the right kind of information, criticism, and tips to help me build that solidity that I have been speaking of.

So I guess the questions here are…. What is your Aha Moment? What do you think? How do you feel about Blogging and Social Networking?  How many people out there are doing what they want/love?  Do you have any tips, advice, or kudos for me? How was YOUR day today?

Aromatheraputic Factual Information

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy SuppliesAromatherapy is the practice of using volatile plant oils, including essential oils, for psychological and physical well-being.

Essential oils, the pure essence of a plant, have been found to provide both psychological and physical benefits when used correctly and safely. The Essential Oil Profiles area details over 90 essential oils. Absolutes, CO2s and Hydrosols are also commonly utilized in aromatherapy. Although essential oils, CO2 extracts and absolutes are distilled in different manners, the term essential oil is sometimes used in writing as a blanket term to include CO2s and absolutes.

In addition to essential oils, aromatherapy encourages the use of other complementary natural ingredients including cold pressed vegetable oils, jojoba (a liquid wax), hydrosols, herbs, milk powders, sea salts, sugars (an exfoliant), clays and muds.

Products that include synthetic ingredients are frowned upon in holistic aromatherapy. It is important to note that perfume oils also known as fragrance oils (and usually listed as “fragrance” on an ingredient label) are not the same as essential oils. Fragrance oils and perfume oils contain synthetic chemicals and do not provide the therapeutic benefits of essential oils.

Buyer Beware: The United States does not regulate the use of the word aromatherapy” on product packaging, labeling or in product advertising, so any product can be marketed as a product suitable for aromatherapy. There are quite a few products on the market that contain unnatural ingredients including fragrance oils and claim to be aromatherapeutic. It’s important to look at the ingredient label when seeking true aromatherapy products.

Also, use caution with marketing claims that state a product is “Made With Essential Oils” or “Made With Natural Ingredients.” Claims like these do not state that the product is only made with the ingredient(s) specified. Such products may contain heavy proportions of synthetic fragrance oils and only contain a minute quantity of essential oil to simply be able to profess the “Made With Essential Oils” claim.

Don’t let false marketing hype scare you away from the benefits of holistic aromatherapy. By exploring AromaWeb and other aromatherapy resources, you can learn how to safely use just a few essential oils and start gaining the benefits of aromatherapy. If you realize you hold an even deeper interest, you can learn to make your own products and control the exact ingredients included in your own personal aromatherapy products.

The Benefit of an Aroma ~ Inhaling Essential Oils
Essential oils that are inhaled into the lungs offer both psychological and physical benefits. Not only does the aroma of the natural essential oil stimulate the brain to trigger a reaction, but when inhaled into the lungs, the natural constituents (naturally occurring chemicals) can supply therapeutic benefit. Diffusing eucalyptus essential oil to help ease congestion is a prominent example.

If not done correctly and safely, however, the use of essential oils can have severe consequences.

The Benefit of Physical Application
Essential oils that are applied to the skin can be absorbed into the bloodstream. The constituents of essential oils can aid in health, beauty and hygiene conditions. Since essential oils are so powerful and concentrated, they should never be applied to the skin in their undiluted form. To apply essential oils to the skin, essential oils are typically diluted into a carrier such as a cold pressed vegetable oil, also known as a carrier oil. Common carrier oils include sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil and grapeseed oil. A more detailed definition of Carrier Oils is found on the What are Carrier Oils page. A detailed list of carrier oils and their properties can be found on the Carrier Oils Used in Aromatherapy properties page.

Other Benefits
In addition to therapeutic benefit at the emotional and physical level, essential oils are helpful in other applications. Essential oils can be used in household and laundry cleaners. Some oils act as a natural insect repellent and pesticide. You may recall using citronella candles during the summer to keep mosquitoes away. Citronella essential oil is the ingredient in the candles that is responsible for repelling the mosquitos. Visit the Essential Oil Uses page for additional information on ways that you can use essential oils.

Essential Oil Blends
Essential oils can be blended together to create appealing and complex aromas. Essential oils can also be blended for a specific therapeutic application. Essential oils that are carefully blended with a specific therapeutic purpose in mind may be referred to as an essential oil syngery. A synergistic essential oil blend is considered to be greater in total action than each oil working independently. AromaWeb’s Recipes area offers a variety of recipes and synergies.

About Aromatherapy Products
Not all ready-made aromatherapy products labeled with the word “aromatherapy” are pure and natural. Products that contain artificial ingredients do not provide true aromatherapy benefits. At worst, they provide no benefit or be harmful. At best, they provide only a fraction of the benefit that natural products supply. Buyers seeking true aromatherapy products must look at the ingredient label to ensure that the product does not contain fragrance oils or unpure (chemical) components. A general rule-of-thumb is to be wary of products that do not list their ingredients and those that do not boast of having pure essential oils (look for products that contain pure essential oils on their ingredient list and avoid those that have words like fragrance). A note, however, is that some sellers of good-quality aromatherapy blends do not list their ingredients because they are worried that others may copy their creation. By asking the seller more about the blend, and listening to how they respond, you should have a better idea about the quality of the blend being sold. Good suppliers should be happy to provide you with a list of the ingredients. They understand that some individuals must avoid particular oils due to health problems.

Hello all of my wonderful followers… I have been on hiatus for some time now, and I am writing to tell you all that I will be returning to the blog here, as I as moving back into my Floridian Home as plans have changed and New York is out of the picture for the time being. I have transformed an area of my home into my “Work Room”.  Ideas are following me around like an angel on my shoulder. I am super excited, invigorated by a fresh location, excited to get back in touch with my wordpress junkies who talk with me about everything, and share their wonderful tips and ideas with me.. And get up on my Twitter again to give Kudos to those following me!!! I have researched so much amazing information since my last post. Aromatherapy is on the move, a high accelerance in alternative medicine… a hot tub for the soul experience. I have found that by simply having one of my creations in your home can help with high cholesterol, stress, agitations, focus, memory, and overall well being… I believe their are even such mixtures that I am comming up upon, that even release the tensions of arthritis!! In an economy where health insurance is so hard to come by, and trust me, I drove that road while up north, these Visually aesthetically pleasing family keepsake wreaths are naturally scented with the earths special aromas to enlighten the well being!! I have lost about 30 lbs in the course of the move, and motivation has been an exciting life stride that has opened my creative eyes like never before.

The WreathConnection Chills in Southwest Florida

As most of you know, our business has been traveling a lot lately, and we have landed in beautiful, sunny, SouthWest Florida. The interviews went , eh, ok. According to the economic issues they went as good as to be expected, but I am still holding out for that business out there that will take a lifes work and make it a pleasure through technique. Naples has changed since I moved from here in October. Adjusting has been somewhat of an unusual experience.  The business has been put on hold, due to the move and all due to the excess in travel.  The wreaths are still on display over at the site at http://www.wreathconnection.com and are all currently available for anyone who interested, you all know that you can reach me by our e mail at  wreathconnections@gmail.com. We have been consistently updating others on our twitter as well, for you all groupie followers who love to keep up with us during this journey that takes us through our everyday. We are looking to have the store shipped over to us down here so that we can create some of the ideas that have been lighting a fire under us lately. Ideas that are so amazing matched with the aromatheraputic, tranquil scents matched with charming undeniable beauty. Of course, we love your comments ideas and feedback towards the business, and we are going to start throwing out there the articles that are often times overlooked by those whom are not looking.  Over the course of the move, I had given a couple choice replicas of the display items to some family and friends for housewarming gifts, goodbye gifts, engagement gifts and overall Thank you for being my friend gifts. I was enlightened at the responses that I had recieved from the reactions from them having their first aromatheraputic wreaths, and the affects that the scents have on their psyche and their home atmospheric areas. Our neighbor from Pennsylvania doesnt even want to take hers out of the box due to the way the aroma makes her and the family feel. Another, whom just got engaged in Philadelphia enjoyed the anniversery wreath so much, I look for it to become a keepsake in her family and eventually for her to add charms and misc to it to add to its appearance and sentiment factor. There is a graduation wreath in the works, and some other really cool summery and even some fall that are being thought up right now, with some amazing scents that will get everyone on their computers to get em till they are gone!!
