TGIF & FAB Friday!

TGIF - The Ribbon Retreat BlogIt’s Friday, It’s Friday…WHAT???? Can you believe another week has come and gone? Wow!

Are your kids almost done with school? My oldest son has only 4 official days left of his 2nd grade year, and I am sooooo excited for him to be out and be home for the summer. My middle son had his last day of preschool yesterday at the zoo and it was a blast watching him run around the zoo with all of his little preschool pals. So, so, so cute! What about your kiddos? Are they counting down or are you? 🙂

Between field trips, end of the season baseball games, and end of the year school programs…Phew!, we had an amazing week with fun, fun tutorials and our May “New Product” Contest (stay tuned for our winners!) wrapping up. It was a crazy busy week but it was awwwwesome! Let’s Review the fun…

Monday – Take and Play Car Carrier

Take and Play Car Carrier - The Ribbon Retreat BlogSlow down, Caution, and Stop Ahead…Havalah has shared with us an amazing car carrier that is perfect for your car loving kids. With roads and signs all over the fabric, this car carrier also doubles as a play mat. Beep, beep…cars coming through! Love it Havalah!

Tuesday – Two-Loop Topper Bow Video

Two-Loop Topper Bow Video - The Ribbon Retreat BlogIt’s video Tuesday! I love this video tutorial that taught us how to make this awesome bow. Make this bow to stand alone or…put this bow on top of another bow to add fullness and character. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this Two-Loop Topper Bow!

Thursday – Chevron Twirl Skirt

Chevron Twirl Skirt Tutorial - The Ribbon Retreat BlogWow, wow, wow, wow! Isn’t this skirt beyond lovable?!? Danielle did a FABulous job on this skirt. The fabric choice is amazing and the sash is delicious! One reader summed it up perfectly when she wrote…”I love it!! I think this may make me break out the sewing machine after a loooooooong hibernation!!” Amen sister!
Wonderful job Danielle!

Friday & Saturday – For our local customers…have you heard about our FAB Friday events that take place in our gorgeous store? Let me share the fun…on Fridays and Saturdays, our store holds fun events where there are always discounts galore or free product and more!!! Want me to keep going?

This Friday and Saturday with any purchase, customers get to pick a flower that will have either a 10%, 15%, or 20% off entire purchase discount sticker attached to it. What???? That’s right every customer gets to pick a flower and every flower will have a discount amount attached to it. Waaaa-hoooo! Who doesn’t love flowers…and even better, who doesn’t love flowers with a discount attached to it? Come partake of the fun and happy flower picking. 🙂

With so much fun this week…could we possibly have as much fun next??? Let’s Look Forward Too…
