I had an email last week from a girl called Lisa asking me how I store my ribbon. Well, I don't have fancy ribbon boxes that cost £30 and only hold 6 reels of ribbon......as much as I'd like to I neither have the moolah nor the space for such beauty - I have more sense than money! Instead, I use these boxes that I found that came with holes in them. As soon as I spotted them I knew they would be the most perfect ribbon storage for me.
Each box holds about 15 reels and I feed the end through a hole, store them high, leave them dangling and pull when I need some. The boxes cost me £2 from Internacionale about 2 years ago but you could always use a wire mesh basket or something quite similar.However, I dare not sure you my patterned ribbon storage. They are, ashamedly, packed in clear bags in a box because I don't have the open space for those beauteous objects. Maybe I'll embarass myself about how they are stored later on.
Im glad to say that myroom is 99% tidy - boy, I have had a real good clear out. Over the next few days I shall show you my other storage solutions but please, don't expect any great luxury ideas plus, a lot of my stuff in my room is not matchy-matchy either......its all rather practical, rustic but organised!
And as some surfaces are now clear, it gave me the opportunity to make a couple of cards. The poochy one is simple "D" (for dog). I have plenty of dog loving friends and hope this comes in perfect for one of them.
And this little pretty is for whoever, whenever. I love stand-by cards....saves me faffing in a panic at the last moment.
And now I have a date with Marko and the pooch to watch some (probable) lame movie and snuggle up x
