Wow, what a week of wonderful articles about Sis Boom and Jenny Eliza feeling so honored. Life here is good on the farm. (figurtively due to the labradoodle energy as many of you know.) We have been snowed in for days and I have just been creating designs I think you will love. First up we have the wonderful GenQ Magazine which I have to say I loved Scott Hansen’s out of the box questions. What an incredible writer. Just one correction , I was never on staff or even considered a contributing editor to Country Living Magazine, I just came up with a ton of crafts for them and Nancy Soriano was just the best editor ever!! period!! I had more fun in those years and I love all my girlfriends from those years. We were one big family!!! I did craft videos and staged photo shoots in my home it was out of this world. I loved going to the Hearst Building and showing my stuff!! They were always so receptive and always wanted more!!! They hold a dear place in my heart. So with that all that said forgive the mis-communication Scott and of course I missed it on the proof read..#Mybad. The interview was so stimulating and the questions took me back to my childhood and I thank them for the time I got to reflect and see the island’s impact on my soul!!!! Scott of Blue Nickel Studios my sincerest thanks!! Check out his blog he is one fine quilter in huge demand!!!
Next up my on line girlfriend Chloe Owens is starting an amazing online magazine and approached me for an interview. For those who don’t know Chloe I feel privileged to introduce you. She is an amazing crafter and I know you will agree, you may already have her books in your stash!! See below and get to amazon!!! so from my understanding she has launched this amazing online magazine that is sure to become your go to for fun projects and reads!!! The name of the mag is Bibelot, the book of creative curiosities never heard the word but when I saw the definition I was on board!! My deepest thanks to Chloe for her genius and for supporting the handmade, artistic community!! I also loved the interview, very creative questions!!
Bibelot – [Bi-be-loh]
1. An attractive or curious trinket.
2. A small object of curiosity, beauty or rarity.
3. A miniature book, especially one that is finely crafted.
Bibelot, “The Little Book of Creative Curiosities”, will be a quarterly craft, design and lifestyle magazine celebrating the hand-made, the ethical, and the unique.
Bibelot is about more than craft projects; it represents an imaginative and sustainable way of life. Readers will feel stimulated, uplifted and motivated.
Bibelot will begin its life as a blog, an online hub bringing artistic, original and innovative people together. It’s a space for sharing ideas, learning and sparking inspiration!

So here is a step by step of creating your very own sweet Valentine Heart Bouquet. I have also used old love letters found at the flea-market or doilies or old sheet music make it as creative as you like..What I like to do is first make a collage and xerox so I don’t ruin these Vintage Valentines and I can use over and over. I used old sheet music for the back. Then I get a fairly large heart punch. When you have 40 of those cut out take those floral wires I think they are 18″ long that are pre-cut from Joanns or Michaels and hot glue hearts at each end back to back so the pretty side faces out!! Are you with me so far? In the end you will have 40 hearts on 20 wires fold them up in half. Clench together and then just naturally bend backwards to form a bouquet keeping the Valentine side up and sheet music down…takes some time but the wire makes them easy and bendable!!! Pull tight with a ribbon continue to shape and reshape until desired results and pop anything in the middle for the sweetest results. Glue Down. I so hope you are inspired and please show me yours Jenny yours is due by 5 o’clock tomorrow..
