With the mythical stories of Mermaids dating back to 1000bc, it’s no wonder that it’s always been a fantasy for many women to possess the traits of a mermaid.

Flowers. They are beautiful to look at, smell nice, and can enhance any room or outdoor space. The downside to flowers? They can be painfully expensive, have a limited lifespan and require maintenance to keep them alive. Wouldn't it be great if your hard earned money spent on extravagent flower arrangements could last FOREVER? If your wish is to liven up your business, living space, or wedding/event with beautifully designed floral arrangements that are pocketbook friendly, easily maintained, and, most of all, never die, then your wish has come true.
This First Friday's featured artist is Lynda Crall, owner and creator of No Water Needed. Lynda is a seasoned veteran when it comes to floral arrangements. What started 35 years ago in a six week class at a decor store, has blossomed (pun intended) into a new business venture.
No Water Needed was created after an expensive experience with another floral business. "I recently decorated a home we gutted and had a few arrangements made for me. I couldn't believe what I was charged and thought I would get back into it. My family and friends saw what I made for my home and encouraged me to really go for it. I have been very fortunate that I have been married, what will be forty years in October, to a wonderful husband who understood my desire to decorate and create art."
In fact, her husband's supportive role has developed into an active role in her business. "My husband has an excavating company, and he has started marketing for me" His marketing efforts have potentially landed Lynda her biggest client yet. "He told me a builder of his is on the board for the Builders Association, and he wants to meet with me about making arrangements for his spec homes."
What inspires Lynda is mainly wanting to help people feel good about their surroundings. She compares it to an artist painting a picture. "When you finish a wall it should be where you enjoy looking at it. My floral arrangements make that happen. I helped my friend recently, and she said she is so happy and never knew how decorating your home can change the way you feel."
In addition to creating arrangements for clients, Lynda also offers custom desingned pieces. "Send me a picture of where you want it to go along with the measurements you want, and I will gladly make you something usually one of a kind. The time it takes varies depending on the size, thickness, if any spray painting is needed, and how heavily the creative juices are flowing. My prices vary, depending on materials used or size. Right now, I would say they go for around $75 to $250."
