Friday, September 30


Welcome back to CAS-ual Fridays, The Clean And Simple Challenge!
You really wow'd us last week with your monochromatic loveliness and
your sweet comments.
The Girl Fridays just love getting visits from you,
and we are having such a great time getting to know you.
I hope you're ready for a little Friday fun that is once again inspired by our fabulous sponsor!

CFC22:  Create a Clean And Simple project using a ribbon tab or loop.  Big loops, tiny loops...get creative but the loops on a bow don't count.

This is a really fun way to use up bits and scraps of ribbon and, as I said before, this challenge was inspired by our sponsor.
Please say hello to

As a new crafter ( know what I mean.....) a few years ago, I fell in love with ribbon.  One roll (well actually, I think I started with about a dozen rolls) turned into two drawers and then an entire dresser...well, you get the picture.  But, I couldn't see it, so I didn't use it.  (You know, the thing we all complain about.)

So I designed and hand-crafted the very first Ribbon Carousel©.  My father, Ralph, and husband, Riley, both helped me hone the design, materials and process.  And now, more than 2 years, 3 design changes, 3 raw material changes, 4 manufacturers,and 2 patent applications later, I present to you.....the Ribbon Carousels©!   We carry over 200 types of ribbons, twines, lace and seam binding.  And last month, we introduced our Ribbon Club!  We'd love for you to join us at for our weekly challenge!

This week's TGIF Club winner will get a $15 Gift Certificate to Ribbon Carousel!

And now its time for our inspiration parade featuring ribbon from Ribbon Carousel.  Thank you for providing such yummy ribbon to play with!!
