Best of The Ribbonistas Week – Day 2!


Welcome to Day 2 of The Best of the Ribbonistas Week!    If you are just joining us, we are highlighting the work of the May Arts Ribbonistas over the past year.  This is a great chance to review some of the best projects we've had from this team and maybe even find a few you missed the first time around.  So, let's be sure to show these ladies some love as the 2012-2013 design team winds down to an end.

We have another 2 very fabulous ladies to celebrate today, so let's get started!

Christina Colón

Adore Ribbon Wreath

Adore Wreath: I love this wreath I made for CHA.  The colors and that burlap were just so wonderful together.  The "Adore" sentiment was perfect since this was also a gift for someone who I was lucky to be able to meet in person. 

Dressed Up Lollipop Gift

Dressed Up Lollipops:  This idea was so simple, it even astounded me.  These were simple $1 lollipops that I dressed up with medallion flowers and ribbon.  These lollies were a gift for my awesome neighbor back home.

Altered Candles

Altered Candles:  What do get when you take simple white candles and add alcohol ink and ribbon?  You get beautiful candles that people will swear you bought at a major department store.

Follow Your Dreams Layout

Follow your Dreams is a 12×12 mixed media layout using burlap twine to suspend dreams ripe for the plucking!

Joy Christmas Tree

The JOY tree was done for the Ribbonista inspired Tree hop around Christmas time, and it's a TOTAL favorite. It doesn't even leave my mantle!

The Little Things Mini Album

The Little Things of 2013 is me making myself take the time to write down some of my favorite things that happen on regular days. A hair cut, walking on daddy's feet, or trying to whistle for someone's attention.


Now…of course there's a giveaway to go along with this very special week!   On Friday, I will select one person to win 3 rolls of May Arts Ribbonyour choice!  All you have to do to enter to win is post plenty of comments every day this week! 

Now start posting some love for these amazing ladies and please stop on by tomorrow for even more highlights from this year!
