PASSION

|

Here at Shelley Simone Creative, we are passionate about designing, executing distinguished events, working with gorgeous designing elements and simply creating beauty. Our greatest passion, however, is working with people. We love encouraging people, listening to their hopes and dreams, and then empowering them to find tangible ways to achieve those dreams by sharing our experiences and knowledge.

 

This is the passion and purpose behind the Shelley Simone Creative Workshop.

LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE

|

People come, and they leave changed. 

 

We have many people attend who have never worked with flowers before, and they leave knowing how to create something beautiful. Others who have been in the industry for years leave with a renewed vision and passion for their art. Individuals who didn’t think it was possible to start their own company left with a plan in place to start heading down the road of pursuing their passion. People felt released to dream big and believe anything can be accomplished. People felt empowered. Everyone leaves with new lifelong friendships and a community of support.
