Arise and Shine Forth Printable

The 2012 Mutual Theme for the youth of the LDS church is 
Arise and Shine Forth.

“Arise and shine forth, that thy light may be a standard for the nations” (D&C 115:5).

I made up a printable for our Young Women and gave them out for our New Beginnings. I wanted to share it with you in case you were interested.

I've never done printables before, so if someone wants one, just let me know in a comment and I can email you, or tell me how to get it on here to be a printable. I assume you can just save it, but who knows really! :)

I also have different sizes and some without the white border. Let me know if you are interested and I will get them on here too. I'd love to help if I can.

How To Make A Bow Board


There are a few different ways to make a bow board.

This is one of the easiest ways, and I love how the frame turns your bows into art!

As you might know, I don’t have any girls.
So sad considering making bows is a stress reliever. :)

The Ribbon Retreat has a Youtube Channel
coming soon with lots of video tutorials.
Exciting, yes?! 

Well, this bow board was made for those videos. 

Maybe someday they will hold the bows of a little girl.
For now, they will hold bows for decoration. :)

Have you been needing to make one for your little princess?
Here is your chance! You will see just how easy these are.

The complete tutorial is up over on The Ribbon Retreat Blog.

Make sure to check out their quality RIBBON 
and beautiful DESIGNER FABRICS to make your own.

Valentine's Day Wrapped Ribbon Wreath


After I put away my Christmas decorations, my house feels so empty!
I am so glad Valentine's Day is right around the corner so I have something to fill all that space with. 

This Valentine's Day Wrapped Ribbon Wreath is the first project on my list of fun Valentine's Day decor. And I can't wait to show you the rest too!

If you're looking for a quick and easy wreath to do, this is it!

Minky Tag Ball


I made most of the baby's presents for Christmas 
and this was one of them!

The Ribbon Retreat has lots of fun ribbon and when I saw this Football Ribbon, I knew I needed to do something with it. 

My baby boy loves it and loved playing with all the tags. 
And the minky fabric is so soft, he can snuggle it too!

Fabric Backdrop

 I took these fun pics of my kiddos using beautiful designer fabric from The Ribbon Retreat as a fun backdrop.  


I love to take pictures of my kids! I am not a professional photographer by any means, but I like to dress up the normal picture every once in awhile and fabric is a great way to do that. I also find taking pictures of my kids to be a great way to spend quality time with them. 


I have a tutorial on how to use a fabric backdrop and also how to take and edit the pictures with a point and shoot camera. Anyone can have professional looking pictures!

January Link Party at The Ribbon Retreat


I know how much you all love Link Parties!

We have one once a month over on The Ribbon Retreat Blog. 

Our theme this month is Anything Goes!

Our only requirement is that your submissions are made with products you can buy at TRR, such as ribbon, fabric, tulle, etc. We carry tons of stuff, so really this only limits the wood and paint type of projects. :)

We have three prizes so if you have something that you think will fit and you want to show it off, head on over to The Ribbon Retreat Blog's January Link Party!
