I too have a ribbon obsession, a paper buying problem, an embellishment addiction and an excessive acryllic stamp collection.
I'm going to come clean with you all and show you a bit of my stash. Now remember I have craft stuff all over my house and this is just the stuff that I keep handy and ready to use.
Yes I do use planters to store my ribbon as well as these clear top stackable ribbon cases (from Michaels).
Note to self - stay away from the Value Ribbon bin at Michaels!
I keep my embellishments in these collapsible bins that are 14 x 18 and 10 inches high . I got them at the hardware store and I have 3 chock-o-block full like this one. I keep them in the lower cupboards in my den.
I'd love to have my embellishments out so I can see what I have but I'm afraid the kids will use them! Especially my darling daughter who is very crafty and has taken over my SU! pastels, watercolour pencils and a set of prismacolours. She once cut 2 yards of velvet ribbon to tie around a friend's gift!!!! Can you imagine my shock and horror...
Keep the comments coming - it makes me feel better to know that others share my obsessions.
Is there a self help book or support group for us? Do we want to change?
