Charlene Driggs – Royal Ribbonista

IMG_0419

Hi I’m Charlene Driggs! My husband, Steve and I currently live in the Tropical South with our little Havanese dogs, Bentley & Hannah. We have two married sons and 2 grandchildren.

I love all things creative! My design style would definitely be described as eclectic. I love it all!  Sewing, embroidery, counted cross-stitch, gardening, cooking and baking and all things crafty from creating greeting cards and journals, to gift sets and decorative pieces for the home, all with beautiful May Arts Ribbon, of course, keep my days happily full.  My main design strength is the ability to work with a variety of mediums and techniques.  I have been on several Design Teams including Scor-Pal, SplitCoastStampers Clean and Simple Design Team, The Cutting Café, Rubbernecker Stamps, Posh Designs Scrapbook Store (Canada), Paper Cubed and others.

 I’m honored and thrilled to be able to represent May Arts Ribbon as a Royal Ribbonista once again!

    Beautiful work! There is something so sweet and romantic about ribbons on projects that always make them extra special.
    The little burlap heart is cute on it’s own but is soooo lovely with the pretty bits of lace and pearls and that perfect little posy.
    Thank you for sharing your lovely work! Can’t wait to see more 🙂

    Such pretty projects Christina. I have a spool of that gorgeous orange and pink ribbon. Are the plates you used glass or plastic? How did you attach the ribbon? Thanks so much.

    Welcome back to the team. Love the Bear’s chair. I have an old wicker chair that would look great with the ribbons like you did your’s.
    I’m hoping to re-model the craft room and I’ll try that project once it’s done. the vintage album is beautiful.
    You have excellent ideas and I’m looking forward to more in the future.
