Our History & a bit about us personally:
As long as I can remember, I liked arts & crafts and gardening. After graduating from college and first working for a large public retail corporation and then a small private wholesale family company, I wanted to incorporate what I liked doing with having more control over my life.
It all started in 1987, with African violets that I grew from small plants and then planted in self-watering pots. They were sold to florists as well as decorating them in baskets for retail sale. Other plants came later, along with fresh flowers. Around 1992, after locating to a new area, the high mineral content in the water was too high for African violets. A friend showed me an ad for a gift basket magazine...and the rest they say is history! A few years later, I married my true blue Dallas, Texan, who was very skilled at technology so he kept the company up to date online, as well as helping get orders out, and making deliveries. Several years ago, he experienced an out of hospital sudden cardiac arrest, and was one of the less than 8% to survive. Unfortunately, it resulted in global anoxic encephalopathy, or hypoxic-ischemic brain injury, where his short term memory was the most affected. He still sometimes helps out with entering addresses in the Garmin for deliveries, so he is still part of the team! This explains us not being quite so cutting edge when it comes to technology these days! In 2018, I was diagnosed with Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia, a rare incurable blood cancer that three out of a million people are diagnosed with in a year, so I was one of approximately 1500 diagnosed in that year. Luckily, this "orphan disease" has a blood cancer "cousin" where there has been lots of research resulting in a number of therapies. I was lucky to find a chemo therapy that worked and I hope to get a few years before having to do it again!
It’s been an honor serving the Dallas-Forth Worth (DFW) Metroplex all of these years. To be a part of conveying the feelings between family members, friends, and loved ones, whether it be joyful or sorrowful. It’s great to be an extension of a company’s marketing team or human resources department, making their jobs easier, by thanking or remembering their customers and employees for important occasions or events. Helping Dallas area events to be successful, is always very rewarding. We have recently started adding the products of local companies and small artisanal companies to our designs. And the cherry on top of it all, is seeing people’s faces light up, because they are hoping the beautifully handcrafted gift we’re carrying, is for them! So many reasons to be thankful!
