I am currently in the process of reorganizing my craft supplies. Many items are not being used simply because I do not have easy access to them.
I have an enormous amount of ribbon on spools. We all know how bulky that can be.
I also have glass jars filled with loose ribbon yardage. Although it is pretty to look at, it feels very unorganized and unruly to me.
I emptied these plastic ribbon containers of ribbon spools simply because they didn't work for me. They are too bulky, hold too little ribbon, and just became a huge waste of precious space.
Then there is this bag with the gazillion holes in it. It held a huge tangle of ribbon. I'm going to retire it for the time being and just use it to hold some wider ribbon spools.
After much thought, I decided to go with a series of three drawer plastic stackable bins. For now, this seems to be the most practical for my current needs. I resisted this type of storage for a long time because it leaves creases in the ribbon from being wound around spools. At this point, I'm not going to worry about it. Worse case scenario is that it will need to be ironed. I think I can deal with that being that I seldom use ribbon anyway.
Who would have thought that winding ribbon onto spools could be so time consuming. Another several days and I should have it under control.
Soooo.....since I am not creating anything at this time except a big mess, it looks like it would be the perfect opportunity to hold a quick little giveaway.
