I have had a really nice and quiet weekend. I got alot done and am feeling very productive. I had a pet sitting job to feed this really sweet dog named Fiona. As I was driving to Fionas home I saw a store grand opening with all the colored flags celebrating the event. The sign said Ribbons and Lace. I almost made a right turn on two wheels to get in there, but I must be a responsible business owner. After all I had a very hungary Fiona waiting for me and a strong desire not to have my insurance rates go up because I caused a car accident, I drove by. I couldnt wait to get done so I could drive back and check it out. I wish I had my camera. It was rows and rows of ribbon and lace. Some of it was a little on the expensive side, but alot of it was priced pretty good. It turns out this is a 2nd store for them. Years and years ago, back in my other life as a wife, I used to sew alot and I went to this store. I forgot all about it, but now they have opened up a 2nd store near me. I will visit there often for sure. This is some trim I got to go on cupcake pillows. This other is a 4 inch taffeta wired ribbon with roses. ISNT THIS GORGEOUS! It comes in so many beautiful colors. When I have time to figure out what I am going to do with it, I will be buying more. I have a really pretty rose fabric and I think I am going to make a really long handled tote and use this ribbon on that. I need a tote that I can wear diagonally across my shoulder. Then Target sells these hard side clutch type wallets. I am thinking of covering it with this ribbon. Well, you just have to see it in my head, but trust me, its really cute. I will keep you posted. LOL
Next is a bracelet using one of my ceramic roses that I get from my really good friend Cindy (http://www.angelheartdesigns.com/ ) I was inspired by this scrapbook paper that I have it sitting on. I think its going to be a gift for someone, if not, it will be on my website soon. The scrap book paper is going to be used for my May Day Jar. There is a contest going on at Make Mine Pink for pretty May Day jars for fresh flowers to give someone on May Day. Its open to all members, so now would be a perfect time to join at http://www.makeminepink.com/ Eveyone have a pretty week. Enjoy some pretty spring flowers.
