Like a flower,
we can also choose to bloom


Welcome to my website! My name is Wendy and I live outside of Philadelphia, PA.  I am a wife, mom of two {awesome} grown children and dog mom to two of the cutest schnauzer pups you have seen!

When my youngest left the nest, I found my self in a new season of life. Although I have been making handmade flowers for 30 plus years, I knew I wanted something more. And so, North Elm Designs was born! 


My family says I'm a work-a-holic perfectionist. I say I'm just a determined dreamer with a side of paper cuts.

I realized I found my passion. I'm thrilled to share my art and talent with my clients to bring joy and beauty to your home and event!
