Happy Spring!

A number of you have e-mailed me regarding my Tutorial on Pressing Crocus Flowers with the Microfleur – thank you! Your comments were uplifting, and there were a number of ideas shared that I will write about at a later date. I will also be posting a “How to Press Pansies with the Microfleur” tutorial in two weeks, so please be watching for that. Pansies press beautifully with the Microfleur, but there are a few tricks and shortcuts I’ve learned over the years that I’d like to share with you.

The eagles I blogged about earlier are about to hatch! According to the Eagle Forum, they are due to hatch this Friday, give or take a day or two. What a blessing it will be to see such a beautiful event up close. I am so thankful for that Eagle cam!

For all of you who are watching the eagles, here's a woman who has put together an amazing album of pictures that you can watch as a slide show. If you haven't been able to watch the Eagle Cam consistently, this will allow you to see a lot of the events you may have missed.

Enjoy the wonder…

Microfleur Tutorial: How to Press Crocus Flowers

I was thrilled to find out a few months ago that I would be allowed to be a U.S. distributor of the Microfleur Microwave Flower Press. I bought my Microfleur press 5 years ago this May, and since then it has been in almost constant use. I am constantly amazed at how well it works in preserving the brilliant colors of flowers and foliage, almost instantly!

The following is the first in a series of flower pressing tutorials, using the Microfleur Flower Press.

Happy Pressing!

The Microfleur is designed and manufactured by Beeline Products Pty Ltd, of Queensland, Australia.
