Today, we are in conversation with the amazing and always thoughtful, Lynn Dolan. Lynn started her paper flower journey nearly 7 years ago and before long, she was teaching how to make paper flowers and botanicals at Castle in the Air.

In this week’s episode of Paper Talk we discuss the proper etiquette for sharing photos on social media and what to do when you are not properly credited. This can be a bit of a hot topic for some people who aren’t familiar with social media and don’t understand why it’s not ok to share a photo that isn’t theirs without permission. Our hope is that our talk will help clear up any confusion and provide clear steps to take when this does happen.
In this episode, we are chatting with the beautiful and lovely Margie Keates of The Lovely Ave! Listen to Margie as she talks with Quynh, Jessie and Priscilla, about her business, her “house”, and her new studio space. Margie is such a well-spring of information for paper florists and had some great insights to share with us!
In this podcast, we are in conversation with Jodi Duncan of Design Master. Jodi herself has years of experience as a fresh floral designer and she is very well known in the fresh floral industry.
