Art by nature, and Micki

Pressed Flower Art. It's simple. Nature provides the medium, I just help preserve it's beauty.

" N Art" is so I can include my other creative adventures from time to time.

So Many Designs, So Little Time

Since my last blog, I have been working on making more Christmas ornaments. I am finding it a fun challenge to come up with different designs, of course using pressed flowers and leaves. I know soon I have to start my Christmas cards, and other holiday tasks, but I can't seem to make enough of these right now.

Craft Shows

I am exhibiting and selling at a few holiday shows this year. It's been a
while. I always think I have so many items until I need enough to fill a space
at a show. I forgot the amount of time it takes to create necklaces, pictures,
cards etc. until I have to pull late nights and early mornings trying to build
my inventory. It's been a tiring few weeks, but I am not complaining. I enjoyed
The top two photos are from a holiday show I did at a local church where I
sold both my pressed flowers and personalized items (personalized piggy banks were the hot
sellers). It was a great show.
The bottom photos are part of my display at a boutique style show that runs
for two weeks in a beautiful historic mansion. I only have my pressed flower items there. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.Wish me luck!

Pressed Flower Boxes

For years I was thinking of uses to recycle cigar boxes using my pressed
flowers. This is one of the results. I embellished it with handmade papers,
quotes and pressed flowers. I coated the entire thing in layers of mod podge and
acrylic spray.

Uh Oh...It's Christmas Ornament Time

I made quite a few of these pressed flower glass
ornaments this year. Each one is different. I don't have a favorite, but I do like the results of some better than others.


I love waterfalls. It is one of my favorite things to create with pressed flowers. I think it is because there aren't many boundaries when making them. This is a picture of the waterfall class I recently taught at The World Wide Pressed Flower Guild Conference in Manchester, CT.
