Good Morning to all… and HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!! We hope that your mornings are all off to a lovely start and that your day has in store for you nothing but hearts, chocolates roses, and ALL things happy!!!

To kick off the special day we have a super simple, super fun garland tutorial for you! It requires a 1 1/2″ punch, dental floss, a hot glue gun… and lots of love. Quick– go whip one up and surprise him either when he wakes up, or when he gets home tonight! yay!

PS, we know you can’t help but to notice the awesome Barbara Strawser Mermaid panel…. Sigh. So beautiful, right? and… we can’t say much more, but you’ll be seeing more than just a sneak peak of that Queen Street headboard in a few weeks or so… xo Have a wonderful day! See tutorial below!!!

To create your own:

  • Download the Heart circles PDF by clicking on any of the above images
  • Print out Heart Circles and either punch them out with a 1 1/2″ punch OR use a scissor to cut those babies out
  • Take a piece of dental floss and hot glue gun your heart circles back to back with the dental floss between them!
  • Hang this lovely creation wherever your heart desires
  • Have fun!

Sweet, Bright & Simple

Seems like Bouquets are the Sis Boom way to say, I LOVE YOU, this Valentine’s day. There’s something so sweet about presenting a bouquet… like a wrapped up story of love represented by color, texture, and fun! The other important piece in this photo that screams out LOVE?!… The tiny angel & sheep painting by our lovely and amazing friend, Barbara Strawser… how precious?

If you’re into this sweet circle bouquet, this is one you can make at home in just a few minutes (see tutorial below)! Have FUN!

  • Download the PDF of circles (by clicking on either image below).
  • Print out the circles (we used photo paper to get a nice, glossy finish).
  • Cut out the circles (or punch ’em out, if you have one of those handy punches!!).
  • Using a thin wire, cut about 12 pieces all the same length (depending on how long you’d like your ‘stems’). Glue your circles back to back, with the piece of wire in between, and then tie all of your wire stems together with a special bow!
  • Perfecto!

Let’s Kick Off February! The month of LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!

Well, here’s the deal… we had every intention of waiting until the 1st of February do kick of the Sis Boom Month of L-O-V-E… but we just couldn’t do it! We’re BURSTING at the seams with LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!! Love for you, Love for our families, Love for our friends… basically love is flying in every direction and we can no longer contain it!

Here is a colorful, happy, trinket that is just FULL of love! It’s being posted today, before the start of February, to show just how serious we are about the love thang.
