Northwest Pretties was established in 1991, by me, Susan,  sole-owner/artist.    I have always been artistic and crafty and I wanted an outlet to share my art. This came at a time when I wanted to be a stay at home mom while my kids were in elementary school. (They are now grown, but it has also enabled me to be a stay-at-home Nana, where I was able to provide day care for my granddaughter, who is now too old to need it. ) With a nudge and a few pushes from a very encouraging admirer, (Nancy, rip) Northwest Pretties was born.

My business has journeyed through various mediums since it was established. Originally, dried flowers was the name of the game. As a florist, this was an easy decision to make. How great it is to create flowers…. wreaths, swags and arrangements that do not die!  As the years have passed though,  I have enjoyed learning and adding other mediums to my collection, the culmination of which you will find as you visit my site.

Thank you for visiting. I know you have many choices out there and I truly appreciate your time and interest in my Northwest Pretties Garden.  Whenever I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate contacting me.
