What have I been up to? Well, I've been making Ribbon Dish Doodads like crazy! Instead of going with random combinations, I hand-selected the bags to coordinate with the ribbons I have. Here are some of the results!
Sunbeam Bread Bag from Lancaster PA. This one makes me smile!
Gallery 141 bag - great colors for Valentine's Day! (Downtown Lancaster, PA.)

"go green" with a Dollar Tree bag from Harrisburg, PA.

Lose those winter blues, courtesy of Lowe's (grey) and Best Buy (blue), both from Lancaster, PA.
And last but not least, a little purple from Stop & Shop in West Springfield, MA. (thanks, mom!)
These and more are available for purchase in my Etsy shop - http://www.designsbymisschris.etsy.com

Want me to make some for you out of your OWN bags? Please let me know, because I would absolutely love to!  :)

happy creating,

New item - Dishwashing Set!

What a pretty way to display some kitchen essentials! This set includes a bumpy dishcloth, flower dishcloth, and a scrubby plarn dish doodad in a striped green ceramic container.

The dishcloths are made with USA-grown cotton yarn, and are both my own original designs. They are yellow, green, and turquoise. The dish doodad is made with turquoise ribbon and a yellow Dollar General plastic shopping bag.

The dishcloths are machine washable and dryable, and the doodad can be sanitized in the top rack of your dishwasher. 

Perfect for a hostess gift or housewarming present. This set is available for purchase in my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/listing/65136321/dishwashing-set-hostess-housewarming
