Ribbon Holder

Confession: I love ribbon.

I've loved ribbon since before ribbon was 'in'. I was a tween/teen in the times of ribbon ponytails.

I've always wrapped things in ribbon - stacks of magazines, gifts, buckets... you name it! Anyway, point being - I needed somewhere I could store ribbon & yet still see it. 

Right now I have a entire spare bedroom as a crafting area, so what better to use than a piece of a wall. We started out with two 1x4's (more/less) & bought packages of hooks at Walmart. I picked up dowels here & there - Michael's, Walmart, HobLob & cut them to fit. It took a lot of finagling in the beginning, but we got it figured out & here is the final outcome: 

It needs a new coat of paint due to extra holes, but so far so good! :)

Secret Sisters

I know that a lot of people don't like Secret Sister programs, but I find them pretty amazing. That said, I'll never lead one again :o) It's a lot of work & I will honestly never understand why people sign up for something & then refuse to take part. It was ridiculously frustrating at times. Regardless, I had pretty amazing SS's on each side - the person who had me & the person I had. It was a lot of fun & was something to hold me accountable for a few months (about 6). 

We had our reveal at Panera Bread & out of 32 people, only about 6 showed up. Luckily, both my girls were able to make it. I love them both & am so blessed that the Lord put them in my life this year. 

For reveal, I created them each a gift basket - what's more perfect for spring than a planting pot full of lovely goodies :)
