Ribbon Storage

Happy Monday to you.....Hope you had a fabulous weekend - It always seems to go TOO FAST! Today I want to share with you a part of my studio that I am SO PROUD of.......My ribbon storage system. Let's get started....... This first picture is of my upper cabinets as you look towards the window in my studio. What you will be wanting to watch is the inside ends of those two cabinets which surround my window (which in this picture has the shades pulled down)..........
When you go to pull those two cabinets out.....they will slide outwards and reveal the inside workings of those cabinets. I designed the cabinets so they would pull out and I could store all my ribbon in those cabinets (on dowels).
Here's a close up look at the left hand side cabinet. You can see right above my inkpad caddy-there is a handle on the outside panel of the cabinet.....you simply pull that handle and..........
VIOLA........my ribbon drawer pulls out to reveal all my ribbon.......(OR SO I WOULD HAVE HOPED THIS WOULD BE ENOUGH ROOM FOR ME TO STORE ALL MY RIBON........)
I say "HOPED" it would be enough room to store all my ribbon........I have with ribbon what some people have with paper (oooppssss-bad example (right Jan!)......maybe it's with tools (OH....another bad example)........okay.....how about stamps (UHMMMMM- that's probably not a good example either.......I'll have to share with you sometime what I had made to store my stamps.........).............WELL.....let's just say that I THOUGHT-these two ribbon cabinets would be PLENTY of space for me to store my ribbon. It totally doesn't help that I took the left hand side ribbon cabinet and store all my Stampin UP ribbon in there and the right hand side cabinet is all my other type of ribbon........NEEDLESS TO SAY - "My name is Kadie and I am a ribbon addict".
I'm off to go find some ribbon to work with an upcoming card project.........Wish me luck.
Until tomorrow.......Keep Living Your Dream!
