WOYWW 110 & Full shelves!!!


Hello WOYWW'ers!....As you can see I have a ribbon issue going on at the moment! Up to now all this has been in a box on a shelf. However I find I dont seem to use ribbon much because of this. I like things to hand! It makes me use more of what I have as opposed to stuff being in boxes ect. Anyway I may have come up with an idea to hang them so they are easily accessible. I have looked at various methods of storage that are available but none seem to fit my needs, so hopefully that will be sorted soon! Also as you can see I have had a little Kanban shop fest from QVC. I used some Birthday cash to fund my Paper Obsession.

And after tell you last week about my super new storage unit I managed to get time this week to sort things out & fill it with my crafty wares! I am really suprized that it has been filled? Thought I might have a bit of room on it to add some new stuff perhaps!

All the little cubbys & nooks are full of glitters & embossing powders & stamp pads & rubber stamps. I liked the fact I can see everything & its easily to hand. Its also nice to see some of my wood stamp collection as they have been in a box for ages!

The lower half of the unit holds my 8x8 papers as well as A5 and Glitter pads as well as some A4 pads too. The middle bit is good for my tape box with all adhesives in it as well as my tin stamps and the plastic box holds all my Acrylic Cling stamps. Really happy with how it looks, but plan to have it painted eventually.

My last pic today is something I made using Cardstock from First Addition Papers " Love Letters" collection and a die cut sentiment & die cut flower & butterfly from Kanban using the "Chelsea" collection. The white doliey I used is stuck to a piece of white card using a double sided sheet of adhesive, cut around & then used "Martha Stewart" Verdilite Glitter to fill in with.
Right off to sort that ribbon! Take care everyone & thanks for all your comments I love to here your views & opinions they really cheer me up! "Hello" to my new follower Michelle ;)

Thanks for your visit to my desk in South Africa! Your new storage looks fantastic. My word but you have got a lot of paper! I have a tools obsession...could be drugs or alcohol, at least we are constructive with our addictions...

Hi Lavinia, absolutely love your shelf unit, it looks fabulous. Just shown my DH and his jaw dropped in amazement:) It looks like a sweetie shop. Like you, I like to see my ribbons so I have them hanging up where I can see them. They are separated into colours and on holders I made from cardboard and these are all threaded onto a metal ring which hangs on a hook on the end of my worktop. Good luck with sorting yours out and have a great week. Elizabeth x #99

Oooh, I like your storage shelves with everything so neatly arranged - gives me great pleasure!! The tangle of ribbons is quite impressive, what are you going to do with them all??

You really made me laugh when you said you thought you'd have spare space in your lovely new unit!! You're living in cloud cuckoo land, lol! Love how it looks all filled up, like everything should be labelled for sale! I love ribbons but they can definitely end up in a bit of a mess though. Pretty card too. It had cooled down here for a day or two (85) but back to 89 tomorrow and 92 on Sunday and I'll be outside in it for both days at the race track I volunteer at. Think I'll be a bit fried by Monday!

Wow!!! Sooooo jealous of your storage unit! I too, am allergic to closed boxes, although they are fun to fill up with all sorts of great things, I also tend to use stuff less when they're in them... For my part, I solved my ribbon problem with clear cookie jars :)again, LOVE your shelves :)
