S K G D \ Bespoke Christmas Wreaths

A wreath is more than a ring of evergreen foliage for your front door! It is the first hearty, merry welcome to all who arrive at your home. Treat yourself and your festive guest to a specially designed christmas wreath this year!

For Christmas 2016, SKGD will be creating a collection of hand crafted door wreaths using willow, moss and top quality noble fir. Each wreath will embody one of three key Christmas trends highlighted by StaceyKath for 2016.

Artistic organisation.

‘Silent scatter brain’ would be an understatement of a description of me. I have always come across quite a relaxed, laid back sort of person but there is a ridiculous amount of silent thinking, considerations and ideas constantly spinning frantically inside my head. Whenever it comes to actually communicating any of these thoughts  they just come out as jumbled and scatter as they are flying around my head. They make perfect sense to me but seem utter random, impossibly connected half sentences to anyone nearby.

I can be organised. I have the ability to be organised. Artistically, not at all. Organisation has no place within my artistic world. ‘Artistic organisation’ is tosh, not possible. I do not believe Art comes out of order. Yes, there is an Art in order, ‘Organisation Artistically’, yes. However artistic thinking is not ordered, it does not come from order. Artistic thinking is sporadic.

“Tidy house, Tidy mind”. How boring.

I don’t think I could bear life if my mind ever became tidy.

Today at work…

I revamped the first display I was entrusted to create. Autumn is definitely here with winter on its way.

It is incredible how you could have two identical spaces with identical features and yet be able to create two completely different gardens with the careful selection of plants. There is an infinite number of plants and no end to the texture and colour combinations one can create. It is just like painting but with living things. However, just like paint and probably in fact even more so, plants can be temperamental. It is all well and good placing two plants together but unless they thrive in the same conditions ones painting will never live.
