"Take Delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart's desire" Psalm 37:4 NLT

My heart's desire is to have my own home business creating floral arrangements. I have exciting news about a new adventure I'm going to take to make that come true.

(Drum roll please)...I'm going to start having FLOWER PARTIES. Very much like all the other home parties you go to, but slightly different in many ways. They will be at my house probably once a month. When you're invited, you will be one of the first people to see my new creations. I will make new floral arrangements every month. You can also bring a container that you would like filled with silk flowers and we can brainstorm about what flowers you like and colors. I will also be filling a container of a lucky winner.

Not only will this drum up business for me and get my name out, but it will also be a time of fellowship. I'm very excited about this.

God has really blessed me with the ability to create floral arrangements. I owe ALL my success to Him.

Now I need to hear from all of you. Tell me what you think and how I might be able to do it better. I will take any comments right now. I need some feedback so I can make this as successful as possible. Thanks everyone and have a great weekend.

I want to thank Alex, my marketing guru, for helping come up with this idea. Can't wait to brainstorm some more with you. Thanks for supporting me and keeping me in business :)

That sounds like a great idea!!! I never would have thought of something like that. You could also create "kits" for them to purchase. Some people (like me) just struggle to get the right colors together. Kits like the bead retreat people, just be nicer!

I'm working up some ideas on marketing your business (per our conversation last night) :). I didn't think you had a logo yet, so I'm sketching some things up and working on some marketing plans. I have some great, inexpensive ways to spread the word about Dynamic Designs!!

And AWESOME about the flower parties! ;) I think that's going to be a hit with people, especially around the holidays.

Ok, I could talk about this forever. I'm so excited for you!!!!! When I got home last night I was telling BJ about our conversation, the wheels started turning and I couldn't sleep last night. I did have to get up and write some ideas down :) haha!!

That's a great idea, Stacey. Thanks!

Alex and I were talking yesterday and she helped me come up with the idea. I would set my florals by the door so I could take them to The Added Gift and she would buy some of them before they even got out the door. I knew that my days were almost over with The Added Gift because they just aren't busy so I had to come up with something.
