Ribbon Holder/Bow Tying THING and Ribbon SWEET STUFF!!!!


Happy Day everyone!!! I hope that all of you are well and hope that I am safe and sound in California at CHA by the time this posts!!!

But as I promised I wanted to show you this MAGNIFICENT hand-crafted oak Ribbon Holder and Bow Tying piece of art which was made by Mike Laverty, sweet hubby of Suzan for my Christmas present. Can you believe it! I am thinking that the inspiration came from Becca Feeken at Amazing Paper Grace but isn't it beautiful!!! Mike, thank you so very much!!! I just love it and appreciate the work you put into it for me!!!!

SWEET STUFF!!! - as I promised!!! I wanted my FOLLOWERS to know that I was thinking about them even though I am away at CHA until Friday evening. So to go along with today's posting I would like to offer as some SWEET STUFF 20+ meters of 1" Organza Ribbon (more than 20 yards) and there are 20 different colors in the selection!!! Sorry but this does NOT include the sweet gift from Mike...smiles!!



Remember that I am at CHA in California until Friday evening so I will not announce the winners until Saturday. But the deadline for this SWEET STUFF will be on Wednesday, February 1, at 8 AM EST. If you don't have a blog, you may leave your email in a comment.

Thanks for dropping by...have a marvelous week!!! Big hugs to each of you!!!!

The ribbon is beautiful and I would love to have a chance to win it! (If you change your mind about the ribbon holder/bow tying post it is beautiful too). I bought the material to make one but so far it hasn't materialized. Thank you for sharing the picture of your gift and your neighbor did an excellent job. Hope you have a blast at CHA and come back with all kinds of good stuff to share with us.
