We loved reading your wishlist comments, you say such nice things about our ribbons. This is the first time we have chosen our winners, it is normally left to numbers being pulled from our famous "Bingo" bag.
But Bev and Rachie have been reading and re-reading all your comments, trying to pick just 2 wishlist winners. Talk about all the ooohing and ahhing that went on in the warehouse today, they wanted to fulfill EVERYONES wishlist!
Bev was the first to reach her decision which was......
-Anything magical for the time of year...fairies, princesses...plenty to choose from at Crafty Ribbons, it would be like my own personalised magical 'Bev's Bag!'.
Bev said she would have great fun putting a magical Bevs Bag together for Julie. I have an idea of what Bev is planning for you Julie, I saw a little collection of ribbons at the end of Bev's desk this evening.
Rachie took rather longer, you see it is Mollie's 2nd Birthday today and she was all of a dither. In the end Rachie decided to pick .....
my wish list would consist of my top 3 so i don't be too greedy as hard as that is to choose only 3! At the top belive it or not would be the animal ribbons with the pigs! Pigs have been my favourite for years and years and i do not have any pig ribbon! next would be butterfly ribbons my wee girl would love these in her hair! and lastly the bow maker as i need all the help i can get with making bows! I wonder what would be on your wish list especially as you work with them everyday? Thanks again for letting us win a prize especially one that is so personal. have fun!
We would also like to send Wilma a Birthday Bundle as she shares her Birthday with our very own Mollie, although we think Wilma is a little older then Mollie!
Never mind the last Friday in November - Monday is the last Monday in November and its my **th birthday - ok so i was born in 19oatcake but its how you feel inside that counts + an ability not to look in mirrors too often. So win or not, and to be fair i have been very lucky so far, i will be celebrating on the 29th!♥♥♥
Wilma we hope you are celebrating away the night and you have had a fab birthday. Happy Birthday from all at Crafty Ribbons
Julie and Fi - please email us your addresses so that we can send you your goodies and congratulations.
I have told you over the past few weeks how busy we have been what with the shows and the internet, to be honest, although fantastic, it has put a tremendous strain on us all. We have been receiving more orders in a day then we have been able to despatch, hence the back log that built up, we try to keep everyone informed on the site with our next despatch date box, but sadly not everyone reads it.
We all decided that one extra push was required and we all worked Saturday (I think we would have worked Sunday if it was not Mollies birthday party) and we have almost caught up. We are not perfect and we have made a few mistakes, Bev was in tears on Friday when a "customer" had a go about a late order. So when we received these two wonderful emails today - it put smiles on our faces and made us feel as it has all been worthwhile - Thank You.
"Hello Everyone at Crafty Ribbons
As promised here are a selection of the hand made gifts i have been preparing courtesy of Ali's amazing tutorials and all your wonderful ribbons.
(Sorry - before you all go looking, this little labybird ribbon is NOT on the website - yet!)
Fantastic makes Lyndsay and thank you so much for sharing them with us.
We also had this email from Michelle Aylott
I am so glad I found your website! I recently placed an order and the ribbons were delivered exceptionally quickly which meant my project wasn't held up. The quality of the ribbon is fantastic and your service is second to none. I can't wait to place another order and can't believe how many great and inspirational ideas you have! I couldn't find anywhere on the site for testamonials but wanted to let you know how delighted I am to find a new 'friend'. Thank you!
We are back in control, the blog has suffered somewhat, I have not shared all your amazing Gingerbread items, but I will. I also have plans for December so please stay with us as we return to normal Crafty Ribbons service!!
