About Pressed Flowers

Do you love pressed flowers? I do. I want to share both basic and in-depth information about how to press flowers including special flower pressing techniques, pressed flower project tutorials, image galleries showing flowers I've pressed over the years, and even some flowers you can buy. I do custom work and will work with you on your project if you like.

If you'd like to see any additional information regarding pressed flowers, please contact me and I'll be more than happy to work on getting it up. Education is my main goal here; I want to share what I know.

Pressing most flowers can be simple. Some flowers need advanced techniques requiring a bit of skill. I will  try to help you acquire those skills so you can press your own flowers, and use them to make pretty things.

New Pages:

Just finished updating and adding information on pressing roses. I added some more pictures too. Hope this helps.

Since 2000 (has it really been that long?) this site has been all about pressing flowers, preserving flowers, showing images of pressed flowers... etc. What it hasn't been, is a place to see pressed flower art and crafts. Or how to make your own. This will change now. To the right, my late Siberian, Bubba (with pencil) This is for you Bubba, with love.

Pressed Flowers for Sale
I will sell pressed flowers and supplies right here on-site in soon, but need to learn the ins and outs of setting up my shopping cart. In the meantime, you can either
email me or visit the shop I have set up on the Etsy platform.

A beautiful blossom is a fleeting thing
It stays for a moment and then takes wing:
With special rays we catch it ere flight
So all may enjoy the beautiful sight.
