  1. Hello, I'm in Fort Worth,Texas in my home by myself. I use the time alone to make paper crafts, as that is my passion. I especially enjoy making cards, which I did for Easter, and I make photo albums. I miss the interaction of all my friends, but I do get out and walk every day with one friend who lives nearby. The warmer weather here is helping my mental outlook. Thanks for all the beautiful inspiration from your bloggers, and the colorful ribbon assortment they used in their projects.

  2. Here in Ontario Canada things are very much social distancing. Supermarkets are well organized and people are mindful. I personally am afraid that the virus will get inside my house. My Dad lives in a retirement home that is locked, no visitors. To keep busy, its a gift this spring time because this C-19 event allows us to focus on spring cleaning. The house is really smelling good. Once the weather warms up the yard will be in mint condition. I am enjoying jumping back into designing for the month of March/April as well, it helps distract from the environment we are living in. Supplies are on-line order or friend deliveries. Be mindful everyone.

  3. Such a beautiful assortment of ribbon! You always choose such neat ones each month. :)

    Because of my cancer and other health issues, I don't leave the house, so hubby does our shopping. There are several items that he rarely finds in stores, but with us being vegetarians, we are able to still get produce. Because of this, we are trying lots of new recipes. It's been really fun!
    Unfortunately our son in Delaware has been sick. We were so thankful that his fever finally broke this past Friday. Such a scary time, especially as a parent not able to visit him. The mom in me wants to take care of my children, so needless to say, our faith has grown stronger.

    My husband is the director of a camp, in addition to being in ministry. Camp is closed indefinitely, and he is holding online meetings with the many pastors he oversees. One of our daughters-in-law is also in ministry and in charge of putting together the online worship services for their church. She also is having online youth meetings. Another son's fiancee is on the front line in her state, working in a temporary hospital.

    I am slowly making cards to send to family and friends when I am feeling well enough. Also watching lots of YouTube videos to stay inspired.

    I hope that you and yours are both safe and healthy!

    1. I forgot to mention that I am in Ohio. Sorry.

  4. I love the spring colors! I have been making masks to donate to hospitals. made over 200. and some scrapbooking. I'm from East Texas

  5. Great hop and a beautiful ribbon assortment! Love those colors!
    I have been cleaning door knobs and light switches a lot! Staying at home, and my hubby has made a few trips to a small local store and the pharmacy as needed. Looking forward to my first curbside pick up of a grocery order tomorrow! I placed the order March 31st and tomorrow, April 14th, was the first pick up date available! Hoping that goes well and that I will get the items I need! I'm in northern CA.

  6. Very pretty Spring assortment of ribbons; love them!
    All is well here in South Florida. Hubby & I have been
    quaratined for 3 weeks even from family! lol But I do
    go grocery shopping myself once a week - wearing a mask &
    gloves. And I craft every day! Yay! Dust?! What dust?! lol

  7. Awesome colors! I actually have to work since I work for a health care organization. This Covid-19 has made working impossible since out 300+ employees there is only 50 coming into the office. I am in Manteca, CA 45 minutes from Sacramento. I am able to get supplies but not as quickly as before the virus. Everyone please stay safe!

  8. What are you doing to keep yourself busy while 'sheltering in place'. Some crafting - puzzles, lots of Bible Studies on line. How are things going in your neck of the woods? We are all healthy - however son got laid off and his plant might close forever - we hope not! Where are you located, and are you getting the supplies you need? Michigan - yes, we have plenty of food and toilet paper - but people are still hoarding stuff but we have been blessed to have all we need. Thanks for the hop!

  9. I'm in Chicago and I am JOB SEARCHING ;( Sadly, I am a personal trainer and fitness instructor so currently unemployed from this crazy virus! I LOVE this Rainbow Ribbon set! GORGEOUS creations by all the DTs!!!

  10. Beautiful colors of ribbons. I am in Ohio. We are doing ok--staying home as much as possible. I have been spending my time gardening and crafting and cooking.

  11. We live in a small town in the east central region of Indiana and we are doing fairly well so far. Hubby has been home the last 3 weeks and I have been cooking more and not getting to escape nearly enough to my craft room upstairs! Lol! But I am treasuring our times together more! So much is taken for granted in our way too busy life's. I just started making masks for family members. Craft supplies? ...I have a good supply of stash that I have been trying to use up ...but I'll order online if I need anything! So glad I joined your RRR club last month ...those ribbon colors are even more beautiful in person! Household supplies? ...We have a great 3rd generation grocery store that really takes care of our community needs! And much safer I'm thinking, than those big box stores. (Hmmmm ...I must make them a Thank You card!) Thanks RRR, Suzy Q

  12. I live in a suburb of Chicago. I am still working, since I am a Medical Technologist and work in a large medical laboratory. We do the work for 9 different hospitals. My department doesn’t do the COVID19 testing, but it is being done in our building. We wear masks and wipe down our work areas at the beginning and end of our shift. I am thankful for my job, yet envious of those who get to stay home. I have been making cloth masks for myself, some of my daughters, their spouses and for coworkers. All 3 of my son-in-laws and 1 of my daughters are still working. I have been ordering groceries online and picking them up curbside for several weeks now. They are always out of several items, but we have plenty. I miss not being able to see my kids and grandkids.

  13. Wonderful work by the DT members - and all so different!
    I am staying home in isolation in New Zealand... we are in a national, 4 week, lock down. it's been ok as I can garden, go for walks and craft - knitting, embroidery and card making, and talk to the cat :). I have wonderful neighbours and we often chat at the approved distances!
    Stay safe

  14. I craft a lot all the time, but I have never watched so many movies in my life. I seldom go shopping, but I did before the big scare and came down with it (wouldn't you know it). I have had to use a nebulizer to keep my lungs cleared, and my poor son is quarantined because he was exposed to it. I am in Oregon, and I have had a hard time getting soy drink and coffee on line. I had plenty of emergency food on hand thank goodness.

  15. Mostly at home these days so I'm able to indulge in my hobbies. Papercrafting and family history are at the top of the list these days. Having so much available online is a big help in times like these living on the East coast of the USA. Thanks for asking and offering this blog hop.

  16. Great hop! From Minnesota. Staying home, going out for a few pickup orders. So far been able to pick up mostly everything except flour, yeast & hand santizer. Doing a lot of spring cleaning, lots of organizing, some baking & a little card making.
