Get ready for a photo tutorial of the Valentines Bouquet you all loved. Get some valentine scrapbook paper, maybe some sheet music, some stripes if you want and you will need 18-20 gauge wire so you can glue both ends with hearts. Cut out 40 hearts and 40 backs to those hearts. Place hearts on either end of 12″ wire stem put scrapbook paper and sheet music back to back and sandwich in the wire. Use a 2″ punch for best results! See supplies below, very easy project.
Picking up where we left off..
Okay so you have your hearts on wires now so fold the bunch in half, close hand around gently..bend back the hearts and flip the music sheet to the back or whatever you like the sheet music can be on top( they are on wire so whatever you choose will be on the top…press them outward (that’s why we use wire 20 gauge) then when they are all out hold with a rather firm grip and spread them to make a bouquet, so they progressively go out. , wrap ribbon around the wire once you have determined your bouquet is where you like it..use hot glue and wrap ribbon around the stem to the top..seal with hot glue..then in the middle of the bouquet put hot glue and add a button or some other vintage castoff or an old jewel..and voila Give it to the one you love!!!! Please let me know how you did.
Thank you to EVERYONE for the Sis Boom support and LOVE!

Read this to yourself and never forget it..Wise words from Marianne Williamson
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” (A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”, Harper Collins, 1992. From Chapter 7, Section 3])
Her book Return to Love is amazing and I’m so grateful that someone gave it to me years ago..
So here are my french knots now. By God, I think she’s got it!! perseverance and believing you are deeply loved unconditionally makes the perfection monsters go away. Create a mantra, like “I believe in all good things” say it over and over . Affirmations saved my life. I used to tell myself everyday “I am strong and capable of handling whatever comes up today!!” that came in right handy.
Thanks for all your comments yesterday, it’s the brokenness and hardship that keep us together. I’m grateful for my struggles they have humbled me and keep me reaching out to do service for others. You guys know I am here for you and that is better than any gift I could ever receive. Now check out these french knots now don’t be jealous!!
Ok, Ok.. last one — we promise… for today, that is 🙂
