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!
