Ribbon Ring Pasadena Day 2

Another cloudy day in California... what's up with that?

Here is a pic of my booth. Each show I try to improve/add something to the booth. This show, I made sure all of the sample ribbon rings had 30 tags on them so customer could easily see what a ribbon ring starter set looks like. I also have a ribbon ring with 90 tags on it.

I have a corner booth this time and I am right next to skinny cow ice cream. YUMMO. The girls are very nice about passing over treats when I look weary. :)

Here are a couple of observations about Pasadena (not sure if applies to all of California...)

1. Food options are incredible. I am staying in Old Pasadena which is full of amazing restaurants. Thai, Indian, Japanese, Italian... you name it, it is within walking distance! I haven't seen a single "fast food" restaurant - how refreshing is that... although I haven't seen a Starbucks which I desperately need today!

2. Motorcyclists are crazy. They zip through traffic BETWEEN CARS! I have never seen this before, it just doesn't seem very safe!

Will check in later!

Ribbon Ring to go... LITERALLY

Just spotted at CK Pasasdena! A customer had a bag full of ribbons that she just bought here at CK Pasadena and she told me that she didn't want them to get all wrinkled before she got home. In 10 minutes I had all of her ribbons put on Ribbon Ring tags. She then clipped her Ribbon Ring on her jean belt loop and was SOOOO happy. She bought a ton more tags for her ribbon collection at home and says that if she comes back to the show tomorrow, she will bring her ribbons/tags to me to assemble for her! I say, "Bring it!!!"

I am in Pasadena!!!

I am doing the Creating Keepsakes Pasadena show today and tomorrow. This is the first time I have been to Pasadena. It is such a beautiful city!! Last night I treated myself to Pinkberry.... never heard of it before, but it sounded so cute, I just had to go in. It was soooo yummy. Kind of like ice cream, but texture like frozen yogurt... so delicioso.

Okay, back to convention stuff:

Many people have asked me to post directions on how to make the ribbon flowers (topiaries) so I will take some pics and post directions when I get back home next week.

For directions on how to make the ribbon cupcakes, please scroll down... I wrote them up a few months ago on this blog.
