"All you need is a little Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust."
My Floral story begins here, with a whole lot of Faith to guide me in the right direction, to Trusting I was making the right decision, and then came the Pixie Dust ending, or should I say beginning!
All I’ve ever wanted or dreamed about in the work industry is finding my niche’ in anything I love enough to make it my own small business.I wanted to have something that did not feel like “work”, that I loved enough to do for the rest of my life and it would be my way of giving back. I’ve had many jobs throughout my life and they all inhibited me from being “Me”. I’ve always had an artistic drive in me that I tried to use to my advantage in being in the salon business, but that just was not for me. From there I moved on to 911 dispatcher. As much as I loved my job there, it was a very challenging work environment, full of quick thinking, multi tasking , long hours away from my family and lots of stress. I craved change, freedom, and to feel happy in my work again. As a former emergency dispatcher of 14 years in my local hometown, I spent many hours wanting something more, wanting to find a less serious, stress filled way to give back, to be home and around for my family more. I wanted to include my love of working with plants and flowers into my day to day life enough that I could share it with my community and become an entrepreneur doing it… so here we are.
I found my way to Pixie Dust Florals after working at a local florist for a couple years. I worked my way up from flower prep girl, delivery driver, errand runner, to floral designer for several years. I pushed myself to learn as much as possible about the business and absorb it all to bring the best of the best to my local town of Kernersville and surrounding areas. With the hands of fate and trusting my faith, I knew I had progressed as far as I would ever go in this particular shop, it was time to move forward with my plan to own my own business. I knew that I would succeed in this endeavor as I am an extremely independent, creative, and strong woman that never backs down from what I believe in and going after having it all, so here we are!
I loved (and still do!) seeing the faces of the people I surprised with beautiful deliveries, being part of a Bride’s day during her wedding and other event set ups, learning how to create from scratch to design something so beautiful and unique. After becoming confident that I had gained so much hands on knowledge of the floral industry, and realizing how much I loved and had a talent for designing floral and succulent garden arrangements , I decided I would name my business Pixie Dust Floral Design!
The name of the business came from a saying that I’ve had with my daughter since she was old enough to watch Peter Pan. I’ve always told her all she needs is Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust. In following those three things, my life has always turned out for the best if I follow that motto.
The creation of Pixie Dust Floral Design has been one of the greatest decisions in my life this far. It has truly been a whirlwind of emotions to see this business grow each week and month. My goal with this business is to watch it bloom and blossom bigger and better each and every day. Pixie Dust Florals will constantly strive to provide the best customer experience as well as share the most unique,and beautiful arrangements with all of Kernersville, as well as surrounding areas. I am so grateful for the support and love my local community has shown me since starting this business. I have met so many amazing people and made friends out of customers. Thank you all for the love and support!
