At convention MAMMa surprised me with the cutest gift. It holds the bakers twine, and its all wrapped up on the spools that are left over from the regular ribbon.
She put them in empty embellishment packages and put an eyelet through and fed the twine through. Each container is glued to the next one, but you can remove the lid to refill the twine when you need to.
To top it off she decorated it so beautiful with a flower, and she made the cutest box to give it to me in.
Don't you just love her? I do, I'm lucky to have her. Mwah! MAMMa, I love you!
Today I got an email from Cathy Hewlett and she said that Fiji looks like a White or Light Brahma, and I googled it and that sure looks right. Thanks Cathy!! If you go back to the post I showed the other day of her running around in my studio I added a video that will show you what she should look like when she grows up.
Well I better get my butt to bed, I am headed over to Rhonda's tomorrow to work on Fall Fest.
Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in!

I love it! I've been saving those plastic ribbon bobbins for a while now, knowing that someone would come up with a fantastic way of decorating or using them. Is the inner bobbin part attached to the brad container to keep it centered?
Thanks for sharing!

What a WONDERFUL gift. That Mamma is one special lady. I wonder if she will share the template with all of us admirers? I would love to make that box too.

Great gift from MOMMA. Can you get a pattern or a link on how to make that box? Glad you found out what Fiji is, too. Cute video nailed it. Light Brahma.

She is so creative (just like you). You know that everyone that reads this will have to make one. Then everyone who sees what the people who read this made will have to make this. Then everyone who sees what the people who saw what the people who read this made will have to make one. It will overtake the world. All because MAMA loves you enough to make this. How amazing.
