Breatheflowmuse is the brainchild of Emily Taylor, a local Jackson county artist. The name was given to Emily’s online Etsy store that went live in early 2018. The store operates as a platform to sell her one-of-a-kind art pieces to the world at large. The Breatheflowmuse social media space has grown to include creative encouragement while highlighting painted items and the process of dot mandala painting. You may find Emily and her Breatheflowmuse artwork in person at local art shows and can learn the techniques directly from her at special workshops.

Shop Paws and Petals Farm
Paws and Petals is a flower farm located outside Concord, MI. The team at Paws and Petals is focused on bringing fresh-cut, locally-grown flowers to their community.
They know that flowers can be so much more than something pretty to put in a vase – they can be a way of saying thank you, they can spread joy, they can be the best kind of self-care, and sometimes they say what words can’t.
This year, the team is excited to offer a limited amount of 2023 Flower Subscriptions, U-Picks at the farm, and workshops in the barn. For Black Friday and Shop Small Saturday, the team will be running specials to help make gift-giving even easier and more affordable.
