Ribbon Craft Fun & More

This weekend we celebrated my sister Frances's birthday. Frances has a large stash of wire ribbon that she wanted to use up, so we created tags and cards using wire ribbon and mostly Catherine Moore, Character Construction stamps.
Below is a picture of what our supply table looked like.
And pictures of us playing...
And some close up shots of our finished products...
I love all of our tags! Admittedly, not everything used wired ribbon, but nonetheless, we all had a great time creating together. Happy Birthday Fran!

I've also been having fun decorating my calendar pages. Here's some of my pages and the stamps I've been using.
I cut out one of my Paige dolls and glued it to the page below.

And on a last note, I'm so excited for this upcoming weekend! My daughter Rachel will be giving a baking demonstration and on a YouTube panel at LA Cookie Con.

We're very thankful for King Arthur flour sponsoring our trip! If you're in the LA area, stop by - there will be lots of free samples and a few TV food celebrities will be there. I'm looking forward to a short little getaway this weekend!

Have a great week!
