You're Welcome...

Alright, so maybe it was wrong of me to show you a picture of my cute ribbon plate when they're discontinued. Sorry about that...I wasn't thinking.

However, Deidre, who also has the same (discontinued) SL@H plate, left this info in her comment:

Recently I found an entire ribbon plate collection at Michaels in the 'ceramics to paint' section. They have all sizes from large to even coaster sizes and usually come 2 to a box. The larger ones are $12.99 for 2, but with a coupon even cheaper, of course. Do you have a Michael's near you? I bought the coaster size and added ribbon to match each of my girls rooms, then make a hanger out of ribbon. Both are hanging in their rooms and I write a new scripture on them each week. My 7 year old LOVES this (O is a little too young to appreciate it), but E looks for the scripture every Monday morning. Sometimes, she'll request which ones she wants on there.

Michael's usually has a 40% off coupon in the flyer in the Sunday paper. I haven't been on the lookout for them in awhile, but I might be now! 

Thanks, Deidre.

This is good to know! I was thinking that I wanted to get one for a gift (for someone else, not myself...although that isn't a bad idea).

Does the ever-so-cool handwriting come with the plate? B/c I can get the plate and I can get the ribbon, but outsourcing the printing might be a problem.

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE your handwriting?! (only a million times, i think) :) If I had that handwriting I'd never computer journal anything!! Can I send you my "stuff" to be journaled and you can write it for me???

Thank you for letting us know this. I love your friend's idea. I might just have to steal it:) Hi Ho, Hi Ho it's off to Michael's I go.

You're welcome. These plates have been a huge hit. I bought several a few weeks ago. I decorate them with ribbon, write a scripture on them and give one away each week at bible study with a ticket drawing. They make great gifts.

Oh, I'm thrilled to know Michael's has these! I looked on Ebay and found the plate, but it was a little more than I wanted to pay, so this is a great alternative.
