A couple of weeks ago, I was approached by the most lovely person, Monica Michelle, about an interesting opportunity. She is one of the founders of a new network called Bloom TV and wanted ME to consider being part of this venture.
The idea behind this network is to share all things FLORAL… gardening tips, bouquet making ideas, how to use edible flowers, how to create gorgeous wreaths…. Lots and lots of ideas surrounding the magnificence and joy of flowers and plants!!
I’ll be creating several DIY creative projects and sharing art techniques… all focused on florals. I’m nervous and excited!!!
Since this is brand new and about to launch, Bloom TV is offering LIFETIME membership to just the first 1000 people for an incredibly discounted price of $99.00!!! You can enjoy how to videos from me and experts from around the globe who will share their knowledge on everything from cooking with edible flowers, to farming and growing, sustainable practices, DIYs and more!!!
You can get your gift card by clicking this link…
With the launch, you’ll get access to all things floral from this ever-growing community of flower lovers world wide.
This would make a great gift for anyone who LOVES FLOWERS!!
Just wanted to share! Wish me luck on making my videos!!!
I APPRECIATE YOU!!!
