I could not believe what I found last night!

While still working on my re-organize/clean up of space, decided to check my ribbon stash!  I moved 1 container that I had ribbon in and could have screamed because it had the ribbon in it that I was looking for earlier in the day, while trying to learn how to use my new peg ribbon maker.  Anyway, I started looking around in different containers and dumping all that I could find on to my desk.  Finally there was so much, that I had to go find a box and take them off of my desk.  It is full of Ribbon, Lace, paper lace, twines, leather strips, Threads for Spirelli and lots of other similar items!  Here is a picture of the top of the box.

This next picture is taken on my desk chair, so that you can see the size of the box!  This box is full!

I was floored that I had to push down to get more in and there was no more room.  AND.....I still have 2 or 3 containers with more in them.  2 are loaded with spools (Ribbon) and the other is some great fibers that I bought in the yarn sections of A C Moore.

This is from a person who thought she did not have enough of any of these items!  I told hubby to slap my hand, if I ever dare say I don't have enough!  LOL!

I am not trying to brag, but I was hoping to get them all stored in the same place....boy do I have a dilemma with that!  I ordered a ribbon winder kit and got some neat little spools on e-bay, but not nearly enough.  I wanted to re-spool all of the ones that are on the store bought spools, as they are to big.  I will have to get more spools to do all of them though....a LOT more spools.

So, what do you think of the pictures?  They are the first ones taken with my new Nikon!  I love it because the only editing I had to do was to re size them.  With the Olympus, I had to edit colors, blurring and size.  Sometimes I had to take the picture 2 to 3 times.  Also, I bought an extra chip, so that I can do videos, but I have a lot to learn there.

Speaking of videos, I hope someone liked the ones I put in my video section yesterday.  I really liked the one about making your own washi tape!

Have a good evening with all of the good Lords blessings for you!  Hugs Lori

My ribbon and such is in bags all over the place. I need to re-organize mine too. Your pics came out great, nice and clear. I love videos, I have a lot of them I watch. I loved the washi tape.

Oh, my goodness, Lori, what a nice stash of ribbon and lace!! I am a HUGE sucker for lace. :D:D I store mine in zippy bags by color in a Sterlite Drawer Container under my desk. Right there when I need it.

And by the way, a girl can never have enough lace, right? LOL!!

Hugs and blessings, Sabrina
