A Box Full of Ribbons
I recently returned from the Kentucky State Fair. As I looked at the exhibits and watched the presentations and the horse show, I remembered my fair experience; showing livestock, driving my horse, exhibiting my clothing projects and modeling in the style shows. I remember the ribbons I won and my pride at winning them. These ribbons would spur me on to work harder to possibly get a better ribbon next year.
Ribbons also come from other sources as well in school, dance, etc
Then I started to wonder where all those ribbons had gone. I know we kept them in a box for several years, but as they added up we really didn’t know what to do with them.
My creative mind started to think about what I could have done to keep the ribbons and display them where I could see them and remember the good times spent at the State Fair. When the light bulb came on, I thought about a wall hanging or a quilt depending on the number of ribbons available.
These memories are priceless. Take the ribbons out of the box and create a memory to last forever!
