Meet the Maker: LeeLina Martin

Happy Monday friends! I'm back with another Meet the Maker! I'm so crazy excited to introduce you to today's maker, LeeLina Martin! I first met LeeLina when planning my wedding. My wedding coordinator who was based out of Palm Springs, recommended a florist that she loved working with who was actual based in Long Beach, like me! I set up a meeting with her and my maid of honor Danica tagged along. I instantly fell in love. She was so sweet and creative and had so many wonderful ideas, I left there knowing I didn't need to meet with any other florists, she was the one. As we walked out of the meeting and I thought to myself "well... that was easy", as I'm thinking it, my MOH says those exact words! She felt it too! My wedding was two and a half years ago and I have since worked with LeeLina several times. Not only do I consider her a wonderful maker, I also am happy to call her a friend. 

It's perfect that I am able to feature her this week because this weekend we are hosting a workshop together!

Now... let's meet her!

Tell me a little bit about yourself...

 I love flowers!  They surprise me all the time.  I've had the pleasure of creating with flowers for over seven years. I guess you could say I'm a little obsessed. 

What is it that you make and how did you get started?

I make floral arrangements and floral instillation's.  A few years back my father had lost his wife to cancer, it was a rough season for the entire family.  A year later he found love again and was getting remarried! I was so happy for him and he asked me to help plan the wedding. I jumped right in! And loved every minute of it! The florist we chose for the wedding flowers asked me if I wanted a job and I jumped at the chance and said yes! 
Loves: Jesus, my husband, flowers, the beach, cake, and adventure. 

Hates: I can't really think of anything. 

Guilty Pleasures: Del Taco 

Cocktail of Choice: Anything pink and bubbly 

What advice to you have for fellow makers?

Don't stop being creative, it feeds the soul. 
I want to personally thank LeeLina for being a part of this Meet the Maker series! I can't wait for our first workshop together and hope to see some of you there!
