Future Planning

This is what my office looks like at the moment. Well I don’t really have an office anyway, this is just me doing the admin in my living room. Like many I suppose, this set may look familiar at this time but not everyone has a flower pen eh?

The creativity has stopped for the moment and I have decided to take some time to plan for the future. The fact that my diary is open at August may seem a little optimistic? Well maybe, this National crisis will be over when it’s the right time for it to be over, until then we have to make the best of it. I don’t know about you…..I would like to be well and have the ability to get to August.

So if there is one advantage of a lockdown it is to stop for a moment and think, think about business and where it can go from here. We can all give up or we can find alternative ways to keep going and ride out this storm.

Now that I have a few items on my little store here on my website I will be adding a few more gift ideas on a floral theme. We have some gin glasses (if I haven’t pinched them all), some scarves, mugs, hanging plaques and candles so keep an eye out for those. You can purchase them here through PayPal and I can post them to you.

For further into the future when the studio will be full of blooms again I intend to expand the business with my own range of letterbox flowers and also start offering a flower preservation service for anyone who wants to keep their wedding bouquets or maybe have a keepsake from a loved ones sympathy flowers. I got to thinking that people invest a lot of their savings into flowers, why not be able to hang onto those special ones.

So keep following me here or on my social media pages for any updates. It is a tough time but for me it’s trying to be positive that gets me through. It’s not always possible, there are some days that I feel I take one huge step back but it’s thought of going two big welly style leaps forward that I like……the bigger the wellies the bigger the future……even with my size 5’s I’m in?

Take care, stay safe and see you all soon.

How are we all?

A bit of a ‘Throw Back Thursday’ today with a bouquet sent to a lovely customer a while back. Since I haven’t got many new designs to show you at the moment I thought I would go back in time and hey, we need brightening up with some colour I think don’t we?

So how are you doing out there? It’s a very unsettling and worrying time but I do hope you are remaining positive and coping with this lockdown. I feel so frustrated not to have my little shop open and even to be able to do any deliveries but hopefully it won’t be long until we are back and able to spread some flowery love around.

I will be updating this blog regularly with any information regarding COVID-19 and of course will let you know if any restrictions get lifted. Please get in touch either through our website or on our social network sites. For me, mental health is just as important as physical health so although we cannot provide flowers at this time we can provide a voice or a message to keep each other happy. We are here to help at Suzy Blues so please remember that!

Ok my lovelies, keep on doing what you are doing and keep taking that advice from the government, we are in this together and we will come out of this together…..

take care, stay well and see you soon.
