Tell us about your business.

I'm Cole, wife, mama to three little guys and a pretty flower maker. Three years ago I made the jump into the handmade world by creating unique home decor and wedding pieces out of wool felt. I love creating pieces that I know will be both unique and beautiful and also something that my customers can cherish for years to come. My hope is that you will fall in love with one of my creations because I absolutely love making each one.

What makes your business stand out?

Do you loathe the idea of buying fresh flowers for your wedding, only to toss them a few days later? Instead of fresh flowers, felt flowers are a sweetly suitable alternative. Each piece handmade from quality wool felt, can be crafted in any color you can imagine to make it your own. No watering needed. My unique, one of a kind felt flowers will outlast your special occasion and be a keepsake you can hold on to for years to come. Modern and whimsical felt flowers can be made for every aspect of your wedding. Make your memories last forever with my one of a kind felt floral arrangements and home decor.

What's the best business advice you've received?

When mixing motherhood with handmade business life you just have to be flexible and do what works for you.
