My 32nd Bday is tomorrow. Weird, huh. I remember having a (second) quarter-life crisis at 25 years old, saying I can't be doing this for another year! I was referring to my job at the organ and tissue donor agency. So two months before my 26th birthday I started Flour, formerly Sugar Magnolia Flowers. Granted, I didn't really get it going until that Fall, but technically I did start it. It really boomed around V-Day that following February in 2010.
This is from a bridal store opening. I knew I wanted to do sculptures and instillations, however without a fine art background I had NO idea how to do it. As a result, it was an utter FAIL. Then I learned about the wonders of gesso and chicken wire and everything we need to make badass sculptures. Same thing for when I started making flower apparel. I had no idea how to do it. Then the discovery of e6000 glue was a magical moment. I suggest going to an art store and asking them what to use instead of trying a million harebrained ways like I normally do:)
