The One with Copious Amounts of Ribbon


Friday, February 4, 2011

Hi my name is Paige and I'm addicted to ribbon. Here's proof:

Somehow over the course of the 9 years I've been scrapbooking I've collected more ribbon than should be allowed. There's no earthly way I'll ever be able to use this much ribbon. The box I stored it all in weighed 20 pounds and I'd had enough. So last night I organized the ribbon I still want by color and put them into ziplock bags.

Huge sigh of relief. I feel so much better now!

And now I have a GINORMOUS pile'o'ribbon to donate to DI.

I feel 20 pounds lighter :)

  10. Malalalalam - that's a good question. It was a NIGHTMARE trying to sort the ribbon. He would take a strand and run away with it and kept coming back for more and it was a mess. But luckily Chris was home and helped me out :)
