New work for Renaissance Ribbons


A fun surprise came in the mail today— a box of my latest designs for Renaissance Ribbons. I had a catalog of options they picked from, and then they requested a few color changes and a new design to add to the bunch, school buses. It's lots of fun working with those folks; they are delightful.


The tickets are my favorite. I amused myself by making the numbers tiny jokes that nobody is ever going to notice. 8675309. 5882300.


The stamps are fun.


And this zigzag stuff makes me happy.

These are now posted in the Renaissance Ribbons wholesale site for shops to order, and they'll appear on Renaissance's retail site in several weeks where you can buy them by the yard.

April said...

So, are you going to let us in on the "joke"? What do those numbers mean?

Kris C. said...

Oh, how fun! (Btw, I recognized both numbers....)

heather said...

These are great! I love the tickets and the stamps SO much!! Awesome job! (love the 80s reference as well)

Mary H said...

I love the numbers! Haha. And I also can't read those numbers without hearing the tunes in my head. :)

Can't wait for these to be available for retail.

8675309 -- LOVE it! What does the other number mean, I need to know!!!!!

Lainie said...

oh great! now I have the song and the jingle stuck in my head!

I got the first number, but google tells me that I don't know the second one because I'm not in the US.
I really love the second ribbon, but you must have been channelling the 80s because airmail hasn't cost 30c for a long, long time!

Loryn said...

Ha! I grew up near Chicago, so I definitely recognized the second one, too!

Melissa I. said...

I got it, I got, I got it - I got your number on the wall! Way to throw me WAY back!

800-588-2300, Empire! Today!

HAHAHAHA!!

Love your humor!

I've seen a 30 cent air mail stamp from 1939. No idea what current rates are. Or wait, I guess all international mail is airmail nowadays, right?

jenny said...

I love the numbers- I look for those sorts of things all the time. And now I have the Empire song stuck in my head!

Jessica Jones said...

Apologies for that. It's annoying, isn't it!?! LOL!

ladylyn said...

*hums* eight six, seven five, three O, niii-iiine. Lol. You're so clever. Also, is the multicolored dots one brand new? Or is it just a new colorway? 'Cause I think I might have some of it.

Jessica Jones said...

It's new but I'm sure there are many versions of dots in the world!

Stephanie said...

Bek said...
