Also, I would like to give a heartfelt Thank You to all of you who have made me feel so welcome here in the more creative section of the Land of Blog, where craftiness runs a-muck and ideas seem to float around like electric current. It feels like one big cheery family of harmonious strangers. It is my new happy place.

Answering some of your inquiries...yes, I keep my ribbon on paper towel holders. The cuter the better, so I try to find them on sale. Sometimes I can get the nice metal ones a little dinged up at a clearance price. When the husband is not home I sneak his utility knife (I have been banned from sharp objects, with good reason, I'm a klutz) and I cut the centers out of the ribbon spools so that they will fit onto the holder. "Easy peasy" to quote the big sis . And...a quick note on finding thrifty ribbon...every once in a while Michaels has a 5 for $1.00 sale. True story, I wouldn't joke about matters of such importance. That is when I stock up. They only include the 1/8th and 1/4 inch ribbons in the sale, but those are the sizes that make the best embellishments anyway. (fringe for tassels, bookmarks, scarfs, etc.)
