In a true twist of serendipity, two wonderful crepe-paper flower projects bloomed today at Castle in the Air. John McRae was working on a special order for a customer who wanted some children's birthday party decorations. He was in the upstairs studio putting the finishing touches on the first pieces -- a pair of giant crepe-paper flowers -- when Diva and Daniel shouted from downstairs for us to come see what came in the mail. We did, and saw that the store had been mentioned in a two-page craft story in the current issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. Not only that, but the project gave instructions for using our crepe paper to transform paper parasols into tremendous blossoms for the flower girls! I guess spring is bursting out all over!
