“Plant your tiny seeds and keep watering them every day. Soon, they’ll grow.”

Making Connections

Since class began back in March we have grown to just over 400 women. It’s amazing what can happen just by opening up your heart and taking that first step. The favorite part of our “I Say Yes” group is the SISTERHOOD we feel with one another. It truly warms my heart!

We are going to plant a garden in our Art Journals using the “seeds” of our weekly assignments, creating in our journals and our new-found friendships.

My Journal Page

Let’s create a BEAUTIFUL garden FULL of colorful blooms to celebrate everything we have learned in “I Say Yes” the past twelve weeks. It’s fun to turn ourselves into a paper doll so we can stand amongst our flowers!


I first laid down two magazine images of a garden for my background then glued tons of colorful flowers on top!

Then, using our FREE print-out, I cut words from it that describe all the seeds that have been planted since class began.


I chose the Word GRIT as my Main Word…since I have learned how to keep going, stay inspired and work hard to follow my Dreams!!!


I created this sun on a piece of water-color paper then cut out and added it to my page.



The finished 2-page spread.
