{Once Upon a Weekend Link Party #41} and Features

 It's finally Friday! Thank you for stopping by!

I am still getting back into my groove after SNAP! I didn't have much craftiness on the blog this week. But I do have two fun giveaways! (both would make great mother's day gifts)!

And here's my recap of SNAP!

A link party is a place for bloggers to showcase their latest creations, and readers to find new ideas! Have fun browsing... or link up your own crafts, projects, recipes, organizing, photography, and more! Include as many links as you'd like, but please no advertising, no pinterest roundups, and keep it family friendly. By linking, you give me full permission to feature your blog and pictures.

There are no requirements, but I'd LOVE you to do any of these....

-Follow my blog!
-Join me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Google+.
-Add my Button or text link anywhere on your blog.
-Include this party with your list of Saturday or Weekend link parties.
-Check out some of the other fun projects entered here.

This week's party has been brought to you by.... 
I'm adding a new feature to my link parties, in appreciation of the wonderful companies who sponsor my blog. Today I want to begin with The Ribbon Retreat. You've heard of them, right? They are hands down one of my favorite online craft/fabric supply shops!
I have so many amazing things to say about this company. First, I got to meet Shirley, their marketing director while I was at SNAP. I loved her. She's young, fun, smart, and well, it would have been fun to talk for hours. The Ribbon Retreat has a HUGE stock of RIBBON, FABRIC, and tons of supplies. They have great, quick shipping, and amazing customer service. I would definitely recommend ordering from them next time you are in the market for sewing or crafting supplies! Be sure to check out their blog too, it is FULL of fun tutorials by your favorite crafting bloggers.
