Goldilocks and The Three Bears

I was so excited to finaly sit down and make this ribbon sculpture! I've loved the story since I was a young girl. I really like how it turned out. I love the pink and brown color combination. The Three Bears are approximately 2.5 inches tall and Goldilocks is 3" tall. Both are on a hair clip. Wouldn't that look cute in your little Goldilocks' hair?

Goldilocks and The Three Bears ribbon sculpture hair clip is currently available in my Etsy shop!

Phew! I had an order for some ribbon Shamrocks that I was excited to fill! As I measured out all my ribbon I noticed that I would not have enough to complete the order. So I immediately ordered some more Emerald Green ribbon from one of my suppliers. I was thrilled when it arrived on Thursday, but was then promptly disappointed when I opened it up and had Apple Green Ribbon!!! Apple Green just doesn't cut it for St. Patrick's Day Shamrocks! I called the supplier and she was kind enough to send me the correct ribbon Express shipping. I was biting my nails hoping it would arrive by Saturday (which is when I had planned to ship this order). Yay! I was so excited when early in the day it arrived!!! Since I was behind schedule on this order I worked off an on throughout the day (instead of just naptime and after bedtime), letting the kids watch lots of TV so I could get it all done LOL! These were fun to make though, so it was a good time. I just finished up the last one and letting the adhesives cure overnight. I can package them up in the morning, print out my shipping label, and have it all ready to ship on Monday. This way I can enjoy my day at my parent's with the kids tomorrow!

CPSIA meets Dr. Suess!

I found this link in the Etsy forums. I thought it was nicely written and fun to read. http://www.easyfunschool.com/the_CPSIA_meets_Dr_Seuss.html

Finally getting motivated again!

The last few months I have been very unmotivated to create due to the CPSIA. Even when we got the "stay" I just was feeling very 'blah' I guess and have just been working on simple hair bows and simple ribbon sculptures. Well today I finally got the urge to make something new! I feel so much better! It's not finished, but it's working out how I envisioned. Although it is alot more work than I anticipated. It might be a one of a kind creation! I cannot wait to share it with you all!

From Hair Bows Wonder World!

One of the fabulous prizes I won in an Etsy challenge was from a very talented and super lovely Etsy seller, Hair Bows Wonder World. She makes the most realistic beautiful roses and flowers out of ribbon! This is me wearing the yellow rose I won! I tucked the end of the pin after I took the picture!

Taking a look through her shop I am always amazed at the work she can do! She has recently branched out into making flowers and accessories for weddings! Here are just a few, you really need to check out her shop if you plan on getting married anytime soon! She has other accessories not just for weddings too, so check it out even if you aren't planning a wedding! You won't be disappointed! http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5814372

I hope this one is available when my husband and I renew our wedding vows on a tropical island somewhere on our 10 year anniversary (that's the dream anyway!)

This one is just so delicate and beautiful!

How elegant!
I can't believe these are all made from ribbon!
Just takes my breath away!
Thank you Lynn! I love my rose!
