WHAT ONE PROSPECTIVE MEMBER HAS SAID:  I am located just outside the state and did my research on NCSFA to discover that it was the best floral organization in the southeast and actually one of the best in the entire nation.  I plan on moving to the state in order to study, learn, grow, perfect, network, and ultimately reach my highest level of floral design.

EXPERIMENT

We all shun away from it with customer product, but to actually improve, we have to take chances with our daily designs.

CAPTURE

Take snapshots and keep an album of your creations so you can monitor your progress as well as to point out your mistakes.
