My Creative Workbook

Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman

One foot at a time

One foot at a time floral art design

“But you can build a future out of anything.

Fall leaf ballet slippers

A scrap,

Autumn leaf ballet slippers

a flicker.

Autumn treasures

The desire to go forward,

Orchid details on the Autumn leaf slipper


Orchid and fall leaves to make ballet slippers

one foot at a time.

Fall floral craft

You can build an airy city

Autumn floral craft

out of ruins.”
