Good morning all my lovely jubbly friends..how are youa ll this bright & sunny morning? Its certainly bright & sunny up here as you will see by one of the pics that I'm showing lol.
Well I've still done no crafting all week I am having serious withdrawal now I am hoping to do some today tho......fingers crossed.
Natalie is still poorly with her chest I ended up trying some of my sons ventolin inhaler on her last night to try ease her wheezing........wow what a task that was cus obviously I cant tell her to suck or inhale she doesn't understand any of it. So I thought if I give her a quick squirt it would make her cough & while we put her in the recovery position she would hopefully bring some of the rubbish up off her chest....it worked thankfully. The problem with severly disabled children is they get a build up of rubbish on their chest & unfortunately what they do bring up they swallow most of it back down so its like being on a roller coaster when we do manage to get her cough only half of her rubbish actually comes out....wow I bet you really didnt want to be hearing about that this morning lol.....really sorry peeps I will shush now. Also my youngest & my hubby have now caught it so I've had no kids at school this week & my man has man flu....aw bless 'em.
Anyway the reason I'm here is Really Reasonable Ribbons Ramblings (wow thats a mouthful lol) they are having a ribbon organization week which basically means show them how to store yours.
Pop on over to read all the details. I thought I would enter mine cus apparently you have to be in it to win it. I have spent half an hour in my hobbit this morning so I thought I would take piccies while I was there so I could enter this.
Told you it was sunny up here lol unfortunatley this is right by my bottom window lol. I'm on sorting my craft room out as most of you know.....its nearly done but with poorly kids I've not been in for a week :0(
This is basically my ribbon storage....I am hugely addicted to ribbon already even tho I've not been doing this malarkey for long lol.
I've closed my blind now lol.
Originally I used hooks as you can see as I had a spare packet in the kitchen lol. These are basically the bars you have underneath your cupboards in the kitchen for hanging up utensils. Ikea do these really cheap also the hooks are cheap from there as well. I however was inpatient & didnt want to go back for hooks as my nearest Ikea is about 20 odd miles away....altho I do need more bars now lol.
So I used cable ties from hubby's shed lol. The clips I brought in bulk from an online store as I knew how I wanted to store my ribbon. A lot of the time I buy in metres so I dont have that many rolls so thats why I did this kind of storage & this way I can clearly see what I have & just unclip what I want & clip it back when I'm finished....easy peasy lemon squeezy...he he
I have these still to sort out & I also have a box of lace & a tub of seam binding......yes I'm addicted to that now as well lol.
These are 2 of the drawers still to be done when I get more bars.
I also thought I would show you what I made last night or should I say early hours this morning lol whilst sitting on the sofa lol. I decided to have a play about & experiment & this is what I achieved.
This was just done with a short length of ribbon & I love it so will be doing lots more lol.
Well thats it now peeps I am going to try my best & catch up with you all now I have soooo missed your blogs. It seems no sooner I get on here Natalie needs me & I have to leave so fingers crossed....I hope so cus I've got loads of DT commenting to catch up on as well. So there may be a big ass shape in my sofa today lol cant go far anyway as my new mobile gets delivered today....I love my sons phone so I copied off him he he....its the Blackberry Torch I went for black as I dont think white would stay white especially if it comes into my craft room lol... my hubby will also NOT be borrowing it to take fishing!!
See ya soonies my lovelies & thank you sooooo much for all your get well wishes for Natalie it brought a smile to her face & mine lol MMWAH.
