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

2nd post today with something for you!

Hi Friends,

I have added some great videos for you!  You will really like these if you like to save money and are challenged in some areas!  Go to the bottom left to find them!  Enjoy!  Hugs Lori


Oops!  Accidentally hit the post button, I think! 

Hi Friends,  I just wanted to let  you know my creative life is Under major construction, i.e., Blog & craft room.  Both are a mess, out dated and in bad need of first aid!!  LOL!  Craft room is coming along, slow but sure!  UGH!  That is a rough undertaking when you have tons of stuff and the room is smaller than I thought.  Really loved seeing a video yesterday where Stampin Up redecorated a stamp room.  If I can find it, I will share it  with you (Time willing).

You will see that I have already made some changes here with a lot more to come!

Also keep in mind that I am collecting goodies for blog candy.  It will be a little work for it, helping me out, but hopefully you won't think to much! :))

Well, back to the grind!!  Have a great day!  Will be back soonest!!  Hugs Lori
