Here I am again with this week's challenge reveal.  Each week +LaDenna Lawrence  and I take turns challenging each other with a project. She chose a juice box last week.
 At first, I was totally clueless. LaDenna was kind enough to give me a hint-"ribbon". That thought did run through my mind during my research but I didnt expound on it.
I have a wall-mount ribbon holder that my husband made me; but I do have more ribbon than I can get on it.  The word " destash" ran through my mind! Lol  But I let it keep running as I make a new ribbon holder!!  : )  

The papers coordinate with my room and I decided to use coordinating ribbons.  I think these would be a pretty display to make several with the coordinating ribbons.  I had to use pencils to put the ribbon on. I really did not want to go store to get dowels.  And the main deal of our challenges is to use what we have if at all possible-as in-don't spend money unless you just have too!
I went to visit her over the weekend and we did some crafting together.  We always have such a great time!
I made another ribbon holder like hers while I was there. Although I could've decorated it a little better, it serves it's purpose.
Here is LaDenna's take on it.  I love her colors and she makes everything sparkle!

Next, we made sun catchers out of acrylic beads.
 This is my little helper-my granddaughter, Lilly.

Single layer acrylic beads in whatever pan you choose. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for approximately 30 minutes. You need to keep checking them during this time.  If not melted keep baking and checking.  You MUST do this in a well ventilated area as these beads put off very toxic fumes!!   I am going to get a toaster oven and do it outside. 

I put a metal charm in first and covered it with beads.
I just love the way they turned out! I plan on making more!
My challenge for LaDenna this week is to use a Pringles can-anything goes!!


Please continue to keep Moore OK in your thoughts and prayers.
This devastation goes on for 17 miles.
Here are a couple of ways to donate money to help the many many people that lost EVERYTHING:

You can donate $10 to the Red Cross by texting “Red Cross” to 90999.  Remember every cent counts!

Shawnee, OK was also hard hit.  My grandchildren live there but were not affected.  But there are many people that need assistance.

 Thank you for stopping by! See you Friday for my new "FRIDAY'S FIVE FAVES" post. Each Friday I will be posting my 5 favorite things of that week. These will include pics, posts, RAKs, people etc.... You get the idea! : )
Have a great Thursday!


  1. I love the Ribbon holder. What a great idea. The suncatchers are great too. I think I need a friend to challenge me each week for a craft challenge. Great idea.

    1. Thank you! We have been challenging each other weekly for over a year. I think it's what keeps me going when I start to lose my crafting mojo!

  2. That's so cute! My daughter would live it, newest follower :)
