You may know Kristi from her blog: I Should Be Mopping The Floor. She is well-know for her printables and design style. With her family always on the go, she has created a book FULL of printables for the everyday family.
Do you ever have a picture in your mind of something you want, but you can’t find it anywhere? Does it happen to you a lot? It does to me.
I have been looking for a smallish wreath to hang on my shutter. I wanted something for Spring for my shutter. But, to no avail-I haven’t found one. So I decided to make my own DIY Cherry Blossom Wreath.
I purchased 2 stems of cherry blossoms from Joann’s. They were 50% off-AWESOME… I cut all the little branches off with wire snips. Easy.
Using floral tape I connected each of my stems together.
Have you ever used floral tape? You can purchase it at any craft store, or floral supply.
Tip: When you use floral tape, you need to stretch and pull to make it “stick”. If you just wrap it , it will fall apart and not work. So make sure to pull and stretch for a good, secure hold.
I made the wreath in no time at all. By bending my branches a little, I formed a circle. Then there was the problem of the green floral tape showing on the brown branches.
To “hide” the floral tape, I decided to hot glue the extra blossoms over it.
You can see that I strategically placed blossoms over the floral tape, and Voila!! I have a small Spring wreath hanging on my shutter
Do you walk by your newly created craft to admire it? Confession: I do! I love when I can picture something and it comes out just as I imagined.
Let me know if you make a DIY Cherry Blossom Wreath. I really would love to see it and hear about your success.

I am well over 700 posts on my blog now. That seems almost impossible to me. Some posts are excellent and others, well, let’s just say they could be much better.
I have been in the process of updating and revamping some of my older posts. Hopefully they will be a little more desirable and eye catching once I am done. Cross your fingers for me, okay?
Let me give some thoughts from my perspective.
To start from the beginning, visit here.
It was back last Fall. I shared my story with you. The bottom line is that seizures had become a part of my everyday life, more frequently than it had in years. I was not doing well. Not with life, physical activity, or home life. I was stagnant. I could not go shopping, to visit family or clean my home without fear of having a seizure.
I had a 24 hour EEG last Fall, which came back normal. That might sound great, but for me, that meant there was nothing in my brain showing why I have seizures. I was crossing my fingers and praying that it would be THE answer. I would KNOW what was wrong and could move ahead in my life. The neurologist was baffled. He has NEVER seen an EEG without blemish. He apologized over and over. Telling me did not know what to do with me. He had done all he could with his experience and education.
BUT, he did know of an Epileptic specialist who COULD. I felt peace, I felt calm, I felt hope.
I started visiting the specialist within a week. He was fascinated by my story and my seizures. He is the only Epileptic specialist in Nevada. To make a long story short: He runs a 5 day hospital stay study. It really is quite remarkable what he can do during this test.
My test was scheduled and set up for January 3rd. I filled out all the paperwork, called to pre-register with the hospital. I was ready. I was nervous, but excited and still hopeful.
Then, we had insurance hang ups. Bottom line, they wouldn’t pay. Or help with costs. Without getting into too many details, that is the story.
Needless to say, I was devastated. My heart was broken. My heart was grieving. The hope of answers that I wanted was now gone. I cried. A LOT.
My doctor was just as disappointed as I was. He signed me up with epilepsy support groups, started me on a new medication and gave me more hope that he would help me.
I have been seeing him ever since. I have had a few set backs, but nothing to complain about. As of today, I been seizure free for 9 weeks. That is a HUGE miracle for me. I am still full of hope and have to constantly remember to Water Your Flowers, Not Your Weeds.
I have so much to be thankful for. Your prayers, good thoughts and positive vibes have gotten me through what could be a tough time.
As a thank you, I have made a FREE Printable just for you. Right click on the quote and click on print. BE SURE to click on color to print the beautiful blue and green colors.
Thanks for listening to me today. I so appreciate it. And again, take advantage of the free printable. I would love to hear about where you have it hanging in your home.
