2012 Collection of “how to” Films by Deborah Dolen on Amazon
Deborah Dolen’s DIY and “self help” books began to appear on the Amazon DPT Whispernet Platform in 2011. In the summer of 2011 her DIY and vocational type films premiered on the Amazon Instant Download Platform in conjunction with “CreateSpace,” an Amazon subcontractor. In August of 2011 Deborah Dolen’s books became available in French, Spanish, and German-as well as being offered on Amazons international platforms such as AmazonUK, Amazon FR (France,) Amazon IT (Italy,) and Amazon GE (Germany.) On December 18th, 2011 Deborah Dolen reached a deal with Amazon to offer any of her Kindle books at no charge to Amazon Prime members globally.
Deborah’s favorite films are Floral Design 101 and 102. This is because of the thousands of flowers used in the filming, and the fact the film crew had to film 24/7 due to the life of the flowers. You would not know it, but the intro was filmed at 3:00 AM. So, for seven days Deborah was surrounded by thousands of her favorite flowers while filming. The flowers ended up being sixteen floral arrangements that were donated immediately to long term recovery units at near by hospitals. Deborah and the film crew, including Mel Tills’s nephew Patrick Simmons-were able to personally deliver the arrangements and chat with residents. What Deborah did not expect was residents sharing rooms wanting their “own” arrangement. There were enough arrangements for one per room. Deborah went home and simply made more and brought them back for the few not wanting to share. By the time she returned they had reached an agreement to share!
Deborah Dolen’s films are vocational in nature, meaning designed to inspire a person to manage a skilled trade that does not require a few years to obtain a degree. Jobs such as floral design can be a profession that just requires a knack for creativity, dependability and short term studies. We live in a time that a person can graduate from a long term program only to find their target market had changed or became saturated in the mean. So, short term vocational pursuits can offer more reasonable goals and diversification of skill sets.
Presently Deborah Dolen gifts her work to state and Federal vocational rehab programs such as Georgia, North Carolina and most recently Ohio as well as the Job Corps. Her work is taught in the Canadian, U.K. school systems as well as a few Montessori based schools. Below is a short clip on how to make an Impromptu Bouquet with flowers such as ones from your garden.
