If you haven’t guessed it yet, I am a lover of Jane Austen and good British movies. My daughter’s middle name (Elizabeth) is in honor of Elizabeth Bennett from Pride & Prejudice.

I hope you enjoy your time here!
Blog: Daisy Dreaming is a compilation of many of my life’s passions –flowers & weddings, decorating, party styling, DIY projects, and my family. Daisy Dreaming comes from all the time I spend day dreaming about projects and all the things I’d like to do in my life. Sometimes I can just spend hours online taking inspiration from all the awesome bloggers and online magazines! My DIY Board on Pinterest grows every day! I’m hoping to contribute in a tiny way to all the creativity out there!
Etsy: In 2011 I launched our Etsy shop, which includes miniature decorative wire beds and posters. When my daughter’s nursery was seen on sites like Ohdeedoh, Made by Girl, Project Nursery, Cheap Chic Nursery, I began to get inquiries about where to get the mini bed. I quickly worked to get production going and I’m so happy with our lovely little beds. We also have added quirky little prints for your home. Please be sure to stop by our shop and check it out. I’d love to hear what you think!
Daisies Of Our Lives: I began DOOL in 1997 after working for a florist one summer. We have been featured in magazines like The Knot, Ceremony, and Exquisite Weddings Magazine. There are amazing people in this industry and I take so much inspiration from them. I absolutely love being an entrepreneur and creative at the same time. I love modern brides who are willing to step outside the box. Check out our website and if you are interested in florals for your wedding, an event, or a party, please contact me!
Party Styling: I have recently jumped head-first into party styling. My children’s birthday parties have been featured on Ohdeedoh, Creative Hostess, and Project Nursery. If you live in Southern California and are interested in hiring me to style your party, send me an email! I’d love to hear from you!
