*post sangria networking event for wedding professionals*

So I wasn’t sure what to expect last night as this was my first networking event in the industry.  This was my second time having exposure in the wedding field and I am once again inspired to host an event with my new partner in creativity Erin Carmicheal designer/owner of full bloom floral design.  

Erin has an amazing eco-friendly approach to her work, here is a snip from her website describing the details in her own words…

{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}
Full Bloom Floral Design focuses on special events and weddings with an eco approach by using local Ontario product and recycled materials when we can. We are also happy to offer suggestions on how to make your event a green one.
The Eternal Tree
When using us for your wedding florals, Full Bloom has created The Eternal Tree in an effort to pay it back to the environment and to decrease our carbon footprint. Following your wedding we will plant a tree seedling in your honor to symbolize the eternal love and strength of your marriage. Via email, you will receive a photo and a map to where your tree is located so you are able to visit your Eternal Tree and watch it grow along with your marriage.
Reduce – Reuse – Recycle
We realize the power that flowers have and feel they can bring cheer to those who need it most. In lieu of guest favors, tell your guests that the flowers from your event will be donated to brighten someone’s day. Once your event is over, we will arrange for the flowers from your event to be sent with a personalized card in your honor to the organization of your choice.

{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}

Last night we both had that creative buzz starting for our event planned for early 2011.  All I am going to say is that there is so much to be seen that has not been seen as of yet…

*earth day*

To me, spring is when everything gets a second chance at a new beginning.  That is why I think it’s my favorite time of year, my fresh start at something that could have gotten dull over the winter.  This Earth day is extra special because it now involves my daughter Riley.  I plan on teaching her how to plant some flowers for the butterflies.

For myself, I have come up with a manageable list of things I will improve on to be more sustainable.

* take an organic vegetable gardening course so I can grow my own crops in the backyard {just started on Sunday}

*buy 1 or 2 cortland apple trees to enjoy in our yard

*air dry our laundry {started yesterday, so many socks!}

*hang some dried eucalyptus in the shower to freshen and clean the stuffy bathroom air

*stock both freezers so they are full {with ice if not food} to save on total energy needed to keep items cold

*stop buying paper napkins and be really conscience about using cloth instead

*bubble baths to be replaced with oatmeal, salt, tea or natural healing oil baths

These are all very easy to do on top of everything else that comes as second nature.  Plus our community is receiving brown bins for our compost this May so I am really excited about that.

In the meantime check out some of my favorite sustainable books; Ecoholic , Ecoholic Home , the Urban Homestead , and for the fashionista Style Naturally: The savvy shopping guide to sustainable fashion.

See you back here on Thursday for an update on how the Sangria night for wedding professionals went.

*stay in the know*

New update for this site, as of  April 20th I will be launching a regular spot for Tuesdays and Thursdays.  The focus for Tuesdays will be {eco} anything from hotels, fashion, design and home could fall under this category.  Thursdays will be focused on {weddings} anything from vendors, location, inspiration and chelsy anne jewellery could fall under this category. Now that there is more of a consistency in my work and family life I will now be able to commit to this blog and you the readers.  Enjoy the new posts to follow.

*Funnest Christmas Ever!!!*

I was able to make a Kawaii themed wish list in Etsy’s treasury yesturday. I love this stuff.  Now that my daughter is going on 18 months, it’s pretty cute watching how she plays. I’ve bought her the kitty crayons and the fun plate for Christmas…The rest is up to you to buy for her. Haha.

*poppy talk*

So where have you been all this time, you must be thinking.  It has been quite some time since I wrote about other artists or about my own creations.  The last month my husband has been away for work and I have been struggling with my 1 year daughter just trying to keep the house clean.  I haven’t had much time to work on jewellery but I have been starting a new collection that is more spiritually focused.  It will be launching soon…  As well I have a shop on Poppy Talk and I will be introducing some eco-friendly mixed media next month for their *Home Sweet Home* edition.
