Passing along some ribbon and papers

Hi everyone!  So.... I placed a "small" ribbon order with Stampin' Up (cause I have a "tiny" obsession with ribbon), and when I received my fabulous package filled with taffeta and grosgrain and realized I HAVE NO ROOM FOR THEM!  How have I accumulated so much stuff in such a tiny area?  Come on, I know you're right there with me!

So I did some cleaning out.  I emptied 39 spools of ribbon!!  Sadly, about 1/2 were never even opened!  While I was at it, I also cleaned out some more pads of pattern paper.  The papers include some Stampin Up, Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey and a few others.   I thought I would split these up and pass them along to 2 new homes who can give them some love!!
If you are interested, just leave me a comment on this post and I will pick 2 names Tuesday morning.

Here are a couple pics I took of the ribbon and papers.  
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  2. I've been on a six (seven?) month sabbatical from stamping, and just finished my first "set" of two sympathy cards -- and does it ever feel good to get back into stamping! Right now I'm so excited that I'm feeling a burning urge to shop and buy new DSP, ribbon, and embellishments, (you know the feeling?), but I know I really can't afford it. If you felt inclined to send some of your overflow in my direction, it could help solve both our problems! I'd also be glad to chip in for postage if you'd let me.

    I'm going to take a few minutes to catch up on reading your blog, and then look for my camera so that I can update my own. Then, with any luck, it's back to stamping for me!

    Smiles,
    Joyce :)

  6. It's me again! After spending awhile looking at all your beautiful creations, I have mixed feelings -- I'll never be able to make cards that can compare to your beautiful style, but I also know that I can (re)develop a style of my own! Thank you for the inspiration!!

  48. How fun is this? You could make a lot of friends by sending each person who commented - a goodie! I have dibs on some fun white ribbon with dots on it! It's fun to read everyone's comments! Maybe we need to set up a swap? But, then most of us wouldn't want to give up anything! Good luck to the winners! Love your blog and all your creativity.

  65. yes most of us can't resist ribbon or paper i worked for Michaels for 18 years. we have a 2 story home with my craft storage room in the back on the 2nd floor and my husbands joke used to be "if you bring any more paper home and put it in that room the house will tip over!" but i am still so amazed at so many new papers every month. So a chance to win something new! I'm in. thank you for the chance
