Anything Goes

Welcome Magnolia friends to our last challenge of the year.....OMG, can you believe it, it's 11 days to Christmas, and we are kickstarting a month long challenge for you to keep you going right through into the new year!!!
The theme is nice and easy.....
'Anything Goes'
so if you get the chance to make anything Magnolia over the busy festive period then come along and join in the fun.
You could win this fantastic prize

courtesy of the wonderful Ribbon Girl

In 2010 we (Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea)  decided to open our own online store The Ribbon Girl so we could make very small (or large) quantities of top quality products available to all crafters at reasonable prices - so you can mix and match and make your craft budget go further.    We only sell what we would use ourselves - Mary owns and runs the store while Andrea looks after the social side including the Ribbon Girl challenges and our mega talented Design Team. Based in the UK, we ship world wide and try to send all orders the same day whenever possible.
So whether you like crafting in classic, vintage, rustic, shabby chic or modern style you'll be spoiled for choice! Ribbon Girl stocks an impressive selection of gorgeous ribbons and trims from silk to hessian, well over one hundred  different designs of vintage style, cotton, guipure and flat lace (all ribbon and lace is sold by the metre in continuous lengths whenever possible) hundreds of charms and pendants, all available as single units.    Our Flower Shop is full pretty flowers and beaded berries and we are stockists of Wild Orchid Crafts, Kort & Godt and many others, in mulberry, cotton paper, satin, organza; we have gorgeous diamante and pearl embellishments; a vast array of buttons, twine, hemp, vintage style brooches, special occasion, bridal and seasonal embellishments. Our Christmas Shop is open all year round and we also offer craft essentials such as top-stitch thread, sticky tape, Glossy Accents, Liquid Pearls and Stickles, brooch backs, hair slides, hat pins etc
Small orders are always welcome at The Ribbon Girl and we hope you enjoy looking around the store - please contact us if you need advice or a sample - especially if you are planning a wedding and want to use lace or ribbons on your invitations, wedding stationery, favours or celebration cakes

Thank you so much Mary and Andrea for the support you have given Simply Magnolia in sponsoring our challenges for so long.

Team Elegance
 has some stunning creations to show and tell this week
