spring cleaning: ribbon

I decided to go through my stuff yesterday before I went to a do some scrapping.  I realized just how much ribbon and pieces of ribbon I had.  It was a bit scary.  Matt says I am not allowed to buy more until I use up some of what I have.  I bought some stuff to get it onto cards, rather than the big spools and put it all in one container.  If it didn’t fit or if I wasn’t sure I would use it – it went into a pile.

That pile of scraps and leftovers is now in 2 rather nice sized bags…  would you like some leftover ribbon???  Leave a comment here and I will draw 2 winners tomorrow morning! 

Also, I am still cleaning out, so who knows what I might find hiding in my stash of stuff!!!

spring cleaning: ribbon — No Comments

  1. I just love ribbon! The thing about ribbon is you don’t really realize how much you are acquiring!

  2. I recently finished going through all my stuff and realized I need (read: want) more ribbon. It’s my new favorite. Thanks for sharing! Blessings.

  3. You know how much I love ribbon and use it on almost all of my projects and layouts. I love the colors, patterns and texures and it can give a project just the right “umph.” It also works when your layout needs “just a little something.” You can never have too much ribbon!

  4. I recently gave two bags of ribbons away myself and I now need some new ribbons for inspiration! Thanks for adding me to the names to be drawn Steph.

  5. I’m definitely in the same boat on ribbon. I love it–collect it and have a hard time parting with it LOL
    I have mine in photo boxes, but it takes up a lot of room. I may need to try the bag approach. It looks like it would work well. Thanks for the idea!

  6. Stephenie I should be “spring cleaning” but instead I am “spring shopping” with all the great fiskadeals lately. LOL Thanks for a chance to win.

  7. WOW! What a ribbon stash!! I am constantly “spring cleaning” LOL 3 kids…whatcha expect? I am also a packrat, but working on remedying that “problem” 🙂 I am giving stuff away constantly, but can’t resist a deal! 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win 😀

  8. I started my spring cleaning a bit early this year although I am no where’s near done. I have lots of goodies (clothes, nic nacs, books, etc) that I am donating to my mother’s church rummage sale next month. I’ve got to get moving on finishing it as next month is already next week. lol

    Thanks for the chance to win some ribbon.

  9. Cool! I love ribbon. I’ve convinced myself that every time I clean I’m spring cleaning no matter the season. lol Thanks for the RAK.

  10. I could so totally use some riboon – I’ve been put on a budget and have lost my “Michaels” and “AC Moore” privilages…

  11. I’m drooling over all that beautiful ribbon. Wow!! How nice of you to RAK some of it. thanks for the chance to win.

  12. How fun I love ribbon. I so need to do some cleaning of my stash.

  13. Ribbon is one of those things that you just have to have and when you go to use some you somehow never have that perfect piece or color and you have to purchase more, and then you realize that your ribbon is taking over the world.

  14. OH yeah..definitely love ribbon! Thanks for the chance to win.

  15. Hey, now you can tell your husband that since it’s gone, you can buy some more!

  16. I need to stop buying the cheap spools of ribbon and start buying a yard of other ribbon that I really like. I’m putting together a craft room and was sorting my ribbon by color. I realized that I have a lot of ribbon (yardage) but I have very little variety. Maybe it’s time for a ribbon swap.
