My Creative Space 'ribbon porn'

Greetings all,
Well a big week, exciting things like children's resuming school (yippee for everyone), starting my middle-of-the-day shift at Shop Handmade (most beautiful place to work), resuming my diet (properly), taking a visiting teenage nephew out for dinner (diet on hold for 2 hours), the motherload of fabric from RetroMummy (thanks Corrie!!) & cutting into my new bolts of Kristen Doran Sampler fabric (promise to share) . . . then a whopping migraine, oh, the humanity!!  Well i woke from my migraine haze to these gorgeous ribbons from suitably named Ribbons Galore . . .
does it get any better than deer, toadstool & owl on ribbons . . . yes, animals, red riding hood & robots!!

What to do with there glorious ribbons??  My Creative Space next week??  Maybe something fun for Mother's Day gifts at Shop Handmade, or something inspirational & whimsical for Handmade Living - the book of crafty wonder.  So sorry i missed a meeting with Tania McCartney yesterday due to migraine, Tania is the brainchild of Handmade Living . . . just gives me more time to think outside the square & come up with something really interesting & pushing artsy boundaries.  Check it out over here & get invovled in this super fabulous opportunity to show off your style (applications close 7th May!!)  Even Mathilda's Market are on the band wagon, great girls that they are!!
Happy Creative Spacing people, hello Kootoyoo, still a little heady so tally ho for now, love Posie

Hiya Jennie. Haven't swapped chatter for a while! Those ribbons are the bomb. I had to ban myself from going to that site - I. could. not. control. myself.

Presumably they will be made into something to sell? Surely you will have to re-coup the money somehow??? Or else, you might have to sell your house!

Today must have been the day for ribbon! I have made some very pretty ribbon things today. Might have to purchase some of your gorgeous ribbons to continue my little "project". Might have to pop into the shop and discuss...

Those ribbons are toooo cute!!!!!! You are the luckiest girl in the world to have all that fantastic stuff around you. I love reading how well the Handmade shop is doing. It is such a fantastic idea......if I get to Canberra again that will be the first place I will visit.

I bet using the word porn in your title bought a whole new world of readers!!

Those ribbons are just gorgeous. My personal favourite (after about 15 minutes of choosing) is the olive green with pink toadstools. How cute is that??
