This is what else I do in my “spare time” (what’s that??!!!)
I started this 12 years ago, when my first niece was born. A LOT of trial and error and testing different supplies and formats, but I quite like doing them now. A good way to earn a little extra cash too!

Also, I’ve noticed conversations about ribbon storage here and there and after getting completely frustrated with my own ribbon I came up with this. Since I usually buy my ribbon by the metre, it ended up being stuffed into a lidded box. It was overflowing to the point of not being able to close it anymore. I play with wire on occasion, so I took out my pliers and twisted up this rack. Stuck the ends of 3 or 4 ribbons onto a safety pin and pinned them onto the wire. If I had a craft room, I would have just screwed the wire onto the wall, but since I didn’t want to make holes in my craft pantry, I used those goofy little self sticking clips and stuck it onto the inside of the door. They fall off sometimes, so I have to remedy that problem. But overall I’m quite happy with it. I can see everything I’ve got. OH, and for the ribbon that I bought that’s actually a brand name, I took it off the spool and attached a mini tag to the pin so when I’m submitting, I know what to include in the supply list. Ta-da!

It’s time for another giveaway! We’ll be back on Monday and I’ll find some goodies to giveaway for my 2500 hit celebration!

Stay tuned! And thanks again for visiting!

    Love the plaques!!

    Your ribbon storage looks amazing too!!

    I’ve just seen your comment re: Design Teams on my blog. It’s the first one I applied for so I’m not sure how people usually find the calls I’m afraid. My friend saw the call in a magazine and suggested I respond.

    Good luck!!

    Hello there! Very cool idea for the ribbon storage. I have a drawer that is jam-packed w/ ribbon. Some on the spool, some loose – it’s a mess!
    Also, I like your new pic!
