We made it back safely last night from our quick visit to see my dad and step-mom and for my son's hearing appt. We are so glad that we got a second opinion! One of his ears is already clear of fluid (from his Dec 16th appt). So, we are watching the other ear and took him off dairy for a month. He has another appointment Jan 22nd. We are not doing any surgery right now. We are much happier with this because it was very sudden and the other doctor had never even seen him before and just wanted to do surgery with no other options for treatment. We are much happier with the new doctor and will be seeing him again.
Anyway, I have not had a chance to stamp since before Christmas! Yikes! I can't believe it is already January and a new year. I plan to go stamp a little after I get this posted. I've also been rearranging and sorting stuff while I pick up my paper crafting disaster area! lol It took me forever to sort all those dew drops by color. I'm getting rid of the bottles and storing them in baggies right now. It takes up lots less room.
I thought I would share some storage posts now and then with how I store my own supplies just in case it might help someone out. First up is my ribbon storage my husband built me for Christmas.
This is part of my desk and shelving that my husband built for me last year. I had all my spools of ribbon on these dowels and I was growing out of room. Right now, I have all of my Papertrey Ink ribbon above my desk since I use it all the time. (I'll share the rest of my desk in another photo later. It's badly in need of cleaning right now!)
Then, my husband built this other ribbon storage unit for me this year. It's 2' x 3' with 9 dowels for storing ribbon. Eventually, I will move my Papertrey ribbon over when I grow out of room since it is what my husband designed it for. Right now, it has some extra Papertrey ribbon on the top. The other ribbon is May Arts, Off Ray, Target, SU, and American Crafts.
I have my short pieces of ribbon on these ribbon cards by Cropper Hopper. They fit perfectly in the four drawer until by Crop in Style. The cubes are very nice quality and I would love more if I had the space.
Hope that helps give some ideas for ribbon storage. Have a great day!
