Wet Nose and Bows Presents to you,  Desire to Inspire 2022

        Welcome and thank you for your interest in my next teaching program.

Learn many aspects

We are very excited to be launching our next teaching class.  I am looking forward to another successful group and meeting and
working with all of you.

Starting from scratch, or seasoned?

     My teaching protocol for my group derives from my own personal experience in learning wreath design. I take my students through my journey only in your journey,
with me, you have a guide. 

I will show you from start to finish

I began years ago knowing nothing other than I wanted to create, be an artist, and stand out from all the rest.

The registration start Date is December 26, 2021, through February 14, 2022. After that, this page will be removed.

Classes begin: Saturday, January 15, 2022, 8 am

This course is a journey. We start in January and go through 12months.
Now, you are not obligated to the full 12 months, but the course is geared and structured into a twelve month program.


Learn Beautiful Centerpiece

Learn to put it all together with reason

We’ll spend a lot of time on Bows

Ellen, I really wanted to send you a Christmas card but I’m bad about that and I don’t have your address! What I wanted to share with you is how much you’ve changed things for me in the past almost year. Not a lot of people can influence or impact people’s lives and that’s what you’ve done for me. You’ve made me think, examine things, see things through a different light.

You’ve made me see the art and beauty in what we do. I didn’t see that before. You made me think about color, composition, texture. I’ve taken courses from others before but you are so very different from all of them. You pull out or give the artist in each one of us the opportunity to develop and grow and that’s exactly what a teacher should do.

I’m so looking forward to this coming year. I just wanted to let you know what you’ve done for me this past year and I’ve wanted to thank you for it. Merry Christmas Ellen!

Desire To Inspire 2022,
here’s the deal…

Let me walk you through my program. I have never been a follower. I create my own thing without the boundaries of what others are doing, or trends. When you learn to recognize your own visions and harness those things that surround you to create, the journey takes on a life of its own. This is what I want to share.  Our natural world provides endless visual aids to explore, English Gardens, Snowy Forests, Spring Meadows, and of course Fairy Gardens, etc…, are all entries into your imagination. Within this course not only will you be learning techniques, but more importantly a new creative world in Wreath Design.

Although this course is for all levels, I need to make sure you understand the structure to make sure it’s a good fit for you.

If you have been in the wreath community you know that there are a lot of online classes, videos, tutorials, and lives. There is a bountiful world of learning to make wreaths all over the internet. However, my course takes a very different approach to most. My course begins like baking, we start from scratch and work our way through all four seasons with reason. January and February are spent discovering supplies. You have to know your product, and you have to love your product. This part can often be overwhelming especially for our new students. But I go over it with you step by step. March through May is spring. Images of English gardens, soft pastels, and beautiful ribbons make this season the perfect learning canvas. By June and July we are into brighter florals, watermelons and bumble bees. August we are into Fall and heading into Christmas. You will learn that as a designer you always need to create ahead of every season, especially Fall and Christmas.

 Anyone interested in Wreath and Floral design is welcome to take this class. Whether you are new to Wreath design, or have years of experience, this course welcomes all levels. Developing and honing your skill and your creativity will bring you more confidence in your designs and your business.

What Students Are Saying

I love your teaching method!! You always stress for us to use our creativity and look beyond what is in front of us. Your way allows us to learn and grow but be individual and i love that!  Your a rare breed and so thankful for your constant inspiration!!!!🥰

My time in your teaching group has been invaluable. I am still a beginner, but my ability to incorporate my natural world into my wreaths has been such a great feeling. I am enjoying my time with you and now in my own world now creating with vision. Your a great teacher. Thank you so very much!!!!

Upon registering you have a clear understanding and agree to all the terms and conditions.

The structure of this class consists of three one-hour lives per month. Two teaching classes, and one critique class. Each class builds from the next. This is not a wreath of the month club. This is a group of like-minded individuals that want to grow and discover being individuals in their art. Not copy cats.

Supplies and materials are covered extensively in the beginning. Where I buy, why I buy, what I buy, how much I buy and tools I use, covers the first couple months our class. I have a lot of staples in all four seasons that will be presented in the class as we move through seasons. Please note, you will not always be provided with a supply list of everything I make. At the point time when we progress you will be challenged to create from your own stock. If during the class you ask me where I got a product, I am more than happy to share. But please do not expect every wreath I create to come with a supply list. But again, the first few classes are spend on product so once we get through that you will have a good foundation of your own product to build from.

I will be in the feed throughout the week to offer help and suggestions as you post your work.

This course is to present you with a journey of discovery. A place to discover what inspires you, a place to learn to trust your abilities and think outside the box. With that being said, you must be able to be open-minded, and have a clear picture of this course so that you’re able to manage your own personal expectations according to the class curriculum. In other words, you need to learn to walk before running. You need to learn to make a single bow before you make a big Christmas bow. All techniques are covered extensively in my group. It is covered in the succession of how the class runs. It is not run to accommodate those that are in a rush. It is run to accommodate those that are interested in taking the same path I took myself. That path took time, so keep that in mind prior to signing up.

The cost: $47.00 per month

This is a monthly subscription. Once you sign up through Pay pal your card will be charged every month unless you cancel.  All previous lives will be available to you as long as you are a paying member.  Please know that if you cancel your subscription, you will no longer have access to any of the videos or any other information from this group.

VERY IMPORTANT! Once you pay through PayPal, a lot of times people’s names are different than their FaceBook names. I need to know if there is a difference. You will need to message Kyle at 2525991929 and will be the only way one can get into this private group if the two names are different.
