Ribbon Ring

It is a beautiful day in Oregon! IT is a balmy 55 degrees and sunny. Woo Hoo!

I am in the process of registering for CHA Summer Convention. I think it will be fun to get out and meet the LSS owners in person. I am so looking forward to it.

I am working with a local organization that gives jobs to people with disabilities. If I get busy enough, I will have these folks do the packaging of my product. I hope it works out!

Today's customer testimonial:

"I found out about the ribbon rings through a friend of mine who placed an order week before last. We are doing are best talking them up with our group of friends. Best of luck to you! You have a great product!" CQ

Creating Keepsakes Convention is this weekend!

Holy crap. The CK-Portland convention is this weekend. I think I am all ready... my husband and I will set up the booth on Thursday, so I guess we will find out then if I have forgotten anything.

I have changed the number of inventory dots included with my Ribbon Ring tags. I am going to include 15 with thirty ribbon tags, 30 with sixty tags and 30 with ninety tags. We'll see how that goes. I also added inventory dots as something people can buy in case they want more.

Here is today's testimonial:
"My package arrived promptly, and was very attractively packaged (I love the pink ribbon-nice touch) and the handwritten thank-you note on my invoice personalized the whole thing. Great job! Keep up the good work - I'm sure I'll be ordering from you again, and plan to tell ALL of my scrapbooking buddies that they just HAVE to order these tags!" CM

I invented a new ribbon storage product about 6 months ago. It has been an arduous journey....

It is not easy to bring a product sketch to reality. I have been in unfamiliar territory to say the least! Writing a patent, working with plastic manufacturers, building a website, creating an ad, filling orders, working with scrapbook retailers, renting a booth at a convention, etc. etc.

All of this while still being a mother, wife, friend, daughter and working full-time at my real job.

Throughout this process, I have made friends with so many of my customers that I thought I would create a blog to share funny customer stories, product news, etc.

For anyone who is looking for a new ribbon storage solution, check out my website: There are lots of pics and information about Ribbon Ring.

Today's testimonial from a customer:

"I received the ribbon rings that I ordered........have been meaning to contact you.....Love them.....Love them." - VL
