Happy Easter!

It was a much busier March than I anticipated, but I am now working hard on the kits for Convenzione 2009 in Pleasonton , Ca. I am so excited!

Click on the icon above for more details about the event. The "Art Paperie and Pleasantries" is open to the public Sat and Sun. May 2 and 3.
This weekend is about family , and I am taking this short break to share with you, but otherwise staying away from the computer for the weekend. Jeffrey is home from U of L, Mason came home Friday from spring break in Florida with the church youth group , and Reagan has big plans for baking a "Bunny Cake" today that we make every year, and my Mother used to make f or me.
This week , Reagan and I got the new Somerset Life magazine, one of our favorites. Since we had our egg dye out nice and handy, we decided to try our hand at dying the beautiful ribbons that Connie Govea Stuart did in the magazine.
This is a sampling of our efforts.
I honestly think that Reagan's came out much better than mine. She is more daring in her experiments, and had the best results with it.
I can't wait to use them on a project!
Hope everyone has a blessed weekend.


  1. yours look great - I love them! - I saw that article too in somerset Life - and went bought a couple of dye kits! I just need to get the ribbons now to dye. In the article, she said she leaves them wrinkled? How do you plan to use them? Just wondering about the wrinkles & how they lay with a necklace?

    Love your colors!

  2. Thanks Lori!
    I did leave mine wrinkled, and if you dry them in the microwave it sets that "wrinkle" look. The ribbon I used is fairly light weight so it still hangs nicely.
