My desk is a sea of ribbon and lace with the rest of my thrift shop finds buried underneath it all. It is in desperate need of sorting!
They were all bargains from a fun day out with a girlfriend, wandering thru the various thrift shops in our area. There are so many different types of ribbon and lace and so many colours and shades of colours that I feel giddy sorting it.
I usually roll lace on a bobbin winder thingy and then slide a teensy elastic band around it very loosely so it doesn't get imprinted with a tight sort of pucker indentation..I then toss those into my rows of colour coded square glass jars that sit at the back of my worktop counter. Haven't managed to get this stuff sorted as I am out of elastics...well that's my excuse and I am sticking to it!!!
Here they are broken down into the individual lots I bought...
75 cents for all of these
Off to the far, far left of the first photo you can see the lovely blog candy that I won from Daniella Hayes at
Daniella Hayes Layers of Creativity blog. Lucky me! She drew my name and sent me this lovely assortment of Tim Holtz products. Daniella tied them up with jute and decorated the Kraft tag with a Hello Kitty theme!
