My name is Marcea .... and I am a ribbon addict!

Ok so I think I may be in need of serious help, like really SERIOUS help. It would appear I have a slight addiction to buying ribbons .... don't we all though :o) Ribbon storage is a nightmare isn't it but let me tell you something, I think I have the answer ..... interested???...... well read on.

At first glances my ribbons look fairly organised .... pretty jars of yumminess, ooh I am drooling over them already

A good old craft drawer stuffed with reels and packs of ribbon ..... plus all the bits that wouldn't go in my jars.

No wonder they wouldn't fit in my jars - they are stuffed to the brim

I don't even know what is in these any more, it is a bit dangerous removing a lid - ribbon just spills everywhere!

Also, my lovely ribbon is all creased when I want to use it so I have to get the old iron out - something I hate at the best of times.

Can you believe all this was in that scabby old drawer....

Just how much ribbon does one person need

Love papermill shop satin ribbon (can you tell, haha)

More and more

... and all those little bargains I couldn't turn down

and more .... hope papermania appreciate my purchases

Sigh, we just can't part with it though can we.

So what is the answer to my storage problems .........

The ribbon ring - have another of these beauties hopefully arriving tomorrow ..... will post later in the week to let you know how I got on with them and piccies of my neat new storage solution!

There are loads of ribbon storage tips on Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings Organization week (phew, not easy to say fast 3 times lol) so pop over and have a look and win some storage solutions too!!

Hmmm ..... better not show you my flowers, lol xxx

I love ribbon also and use wooden clothes pins for my laces - the kind that are just open and dont clap shut - it works great to store lots of lace in one small area. The ones that are on cards in packages I just store in a nice box. Cant wait to see how the ribbon ring works for you!!
