Working Designer Wednesday

Jan 15, 2014

It’s Wednesday again! The weeks pass so quickly. A few of my favorite things this week…

1. This podcast interview of Debra Prinzing speaking with Holly Chapple…love what she says about using locally grown flowers, how she grew her business into what it is today and her vision for the Chapel Designers. Better grab a cup of coffee before you sit down for this one…
