This all came about after I posted a Facebook message at year-end “… that for me, the New Year 2017 was going to be the year of BETTER”. But I have to admit… like so many florists who spend their days busy with daily work, my excuse for taking time to do extra something is ‘I don’t have enough time’. So how can we do ‘BETTER’ if we don’t take the time.  That was my resolve for 2017!!

What I plan to do ‘BETTER’ is to communicate regularly and share everything I know with my community.  When I sat down to list all the tips, mechanics & techniques, design ideas, inspirations and general interest content that I possess – I realized that I had enough material to share via post everyday for 5+ years.  This is not to say that I will be posting everyday…  but more often.

My year of ‘BETTER’ communication includes this website with regular blog posting.  I have relaunched my @hitomigilliam Instagram account and vow to post more regularly on my 3 Facebook pages – Hitomi Gilliam,  Hitomi Gilliam AIFD and Design358. This way, I am hoping that we can stay in touch ‘BETTER’ in 2017!!!

      Hitomi …Since 2014 I became aware of ur Artistry. Since that time i have seen you “demonstrate” to the world the “importance” of ones self determination disapline & awareness of
      ” You have a “gift” an your hands & smiles share it to all who are welling to succeed.
