What is it that attracts us to certain inanimate objects? I love supplies of all kinds, especially ribbon. I could have shelves dedicated to this little cloth gem. It comes in so many colour combinations, textures, widths, styles, weights etc.

Ribbon adds a beautiful dimension to handmade cards, clothes (especially for small children) and scrapbook pages. I love the tactileness of a journal embellished with a multitude of wonderful ribbon samples. I so enjoy creating these for our market customers.

Today I actually got some time to make a few cards - it is so satisfying to individualize each card and think about the intended recipient while the creative process is taking place. It gives one time to reflect on times past if it is a birthday card or be mindfully quiet if the card is meant as solice to a friend or family member.
