Ooooh...I do love ribbon

Morning folks....I had just the most fun Saturday morning at Simply Create....with the lovely Judy and of course Mrs Simply Create herself....the fabulous Jacqui and all those other lovely crafters sitting entranced by Judy's demo.    Judy is just the bees knees when it comes to colour work and made me realise how much I still have to learn.    Big thank you to Jacqui who treated us all to a yummy sandwich lunch from the Alford Bistro.....you are too kind Mrs but as always the time passes too quickly and as I left to go home it started to rain.   By the time I reached home the sun was out again but not in Alford.....they were hit by a huge thunder and lightning storm.....the main street was like a river and the store owners were kept busy piling up sandbags to stop the rain invading their premises and then just to add insult to injury they had a power cut.....poor Judy...demo-ing in the dark....now that is a bit of a challenge.   Will I pack the inflatable...the waders and a torch when it's my turn next Saturday.
And what am I doing today.....well I am sorting out some gorgeous ribbons that arrived in the post on Friday.....you all know how much I love ribbon.....in fact you could say I am a bit of an addict.....and even I was speechless when I opened the box.....



a bumper selection of gorgeous ribbons from Fantastic Ribbons......who will be sponsoring a monthly prize over at Penny Black Saturday for the last challenge each month starting on 26th June....you will have the chance to win 4 rolls of ribbon of your choice from their website...and the lovely Keith kindly sent this scrumptious box of goodies for the girls on the team.
And if you can't wait until the end of the month....why don't you pop over and check out the website...and see why Fantastic Ribbons are now the UKs leading craft and hobby ribbon supplier on a roll. Feast your eyes on  the new summer sizzler colours, the fruity dotted sheers and fabulous shaded roses on a cord....and the best news is....they have a unique discount system where the more rolls you buy the more you save....but   don't blame me if you have no willpower.  Off to pop these in the post for all our lovely Penny Black Saturday girls and I'm sure these beauties will pop up soon at a blog near you.
Me....I am all set to do battle with Mr Mojo....he has not been pulling his weight lately....so the creative conveyor belt has grind to a halt......and all those challenges await.....catch up with you all tomorrow if a big kick in the butt manages to get him going again.

Kath you must have the same ribbon addiction that I have. The question is are we beyond help? My stash has outgrown the draw it was in. How do you keep yours tidy?

Cheers

I think Mr Mojo is flitting between us all at the moment Kath - he just pops on off without any notice whatsoever! How inconsiderate! Perhaps the gorgeous ribbons will tempt his return.

Love Lynda xxx

Dear Kath.What is the world coming to? How will we mere mortals manage if the wonderful Kath has mislaid Mr. Mojo? In my mag this month the delicious Tim suggests a craft room reorganise as a cure for loss of Mojo-says it works for him.By the way if you pop over to mine I've had an award and I've just realised you could be just the person to pass it on to so I'll add your name to the list Hugs BettyXXX (Thinks-that's only four more id...lovely people to drop/sorry award it to)
