1.  Twig Tips
 
How about something free?  My expertise was gained in bits and
pieces, kinda like twigs.   So, I want to offer those tidbits to
you in the same way: in bits and pieces.  Now, how could I charge
for that?  So, they are free!  Totally free!
 
My twig tip for today is….
 
Honeysuckle.  Why are our wreath designs so unique, gorgeous and
long-lasting?  We spell it h-o-n-e-y-s-u-c-k-l-e!  It certainly
gives our creations that wild, woodsy and natural look and it also
provides perfect resting places for bird nests and other critters.
It helps enhance the shape of the wreath and adds strength and
durability to your wreath.  In fact, when you make a character
wreath, some of those sentimental pieces are made of wood or
pottery and can be quite heavy.  For example, if I want to add a
clay pot to the wreath, I tie the honeysuckle into a ring and slide
the pot into the ring – securing it with glue, and then covering it
with fresh mosses.  The honeysuckle vine will hold such an addition
securely and generally enhances or adds to the strength of the
wreath base.
 
Drive down any wooded country road and you can find honeysuckle
vines in the undergrowth or at the base of a tree or fence.  It
likes to twine around these and grow up among the branches.  Now is
the time of year to look for it, as honeysuckle has not begun to
leaf out yet.  If you do happen to harvest honeysuckle when it has
leaves on it, just let them dry and rub them off the stems.  Just
cut the vine at the point where it comes up out of the ground and
then merely pull the remainder of the vine out of the tree or bush.
 
As soon as you have collected the honeysuckle vine, wrap it around
in a circle and secure it with wire.  This allows it to dry curved
instead of straight, for as honeysuckle dries, it becomes brittle.
Only cut as much as you may need, so that it will be fresh as you
add it to your wreath.  When incorporating honeysuckle into your
twig wreath, use pipe cleaners or wire to tie it to the twig wreath
base.  In fact, I demonstrate this process in every wreath-making
video.  You can see these on my product page.  Be creative by
having it extend above and below the wreath.  Make loops and curls;
let your imagination be your guide.

 3.  Personal Coaching

Another request from customers that has been received consistently
since Ladybug Wreaths started turning out designer wreaths 20 years
ago is for personal coaching classes in wreath-making.  Ladybug
Wreaths is entertaining that thought, but first we want and need
the input from you, the customer. 
 
What kind of learner are you?  Before we roll out a coaching class,
we want it to be custom tailored to your specific needs, as much as
is practical.  So tell us, do you prefer one-on-one teaching or
learning in small groups of 4 or 5 students?  Might you enjoy a
larger class of, say, 15 eager students?  Do you want a one day
class or would you perhaps prefer a weekend learning event, with
other activities included?  Perhaps a webinar would fit your work,
budget and/or lifestyle better. 
 
Before Ladybug Wreaths kicks off this learning venture, we want to
meet your needs in the most effective and most efficient way, so
give us your feedback.  You can do so by responding via email to:
 
  Nancy@LadybugWreaths.com
 
Be sure to add:  “Coaching With Nancy”
to your subject line!
   
 
 4.  Brand New Products

Just as surely as Spring produces new buds, each change in season
produces new ideas at Ladybug Wreaths.  Extending our current list
of E-Books and instructional video topics, Ladybug Wreaths will be
offering expanded ideas on the creation and uses for Ribbons &
Bows.  New wreath creations and ideas for Christmas and Christmas
table arrangements using fresh greens.

Ladybug Wreaths listens to and values its customers ideas and
suggestions, too.  Many of you have inquired about the materials
that Ladybug Wreaths employs in their wreaths and asked about our
suppliers.  That list of suppliers, complete with names, addresses
and telephone numbers is being compiled and will be available soon.
 
This newsletter will contain these new offerings, so check back
often!

Wishing You Many Smiles and Blossoms!   Nancy
