wham, bam, thank you glam.

Instead of keeping house today, I dappled in crafty-ness.
I had a few projects that needed to be done including a few friendly gifts.
I love any good excuse to rifle around in my vintage ribbon stash. (thank you mother!)
It makes me happy, as do paper, scissors, and glue.
I think this package screams "open me! now!"
Don't you love a good and satisfying tug on a lush, velvety bow?

P.S. And, Amanda-- your present is in the mail!

OK, I may run over to implore your help with this silloutte business. My friend's husband emailed me pics, most of which are unusable, but at least he tried, poor thing. I'll review your steps tomorrow when I've regained confidence.

That package also screams, Don't hate me because I'm absolutely gorgeous! =)

A silhoutte tutorial? Did I miss this somehow???

Sarah Schneider said...

Beautiful! I would have trouble USING vintage ribbons, I am such a romantic and want to savor and keep things like that! LOL
I am planning on copying the silhouette idea for a gift for my husband for V-Day, if I can ever remember to take the pictures of the kids!!! :)
