Bring out your pretty ribbons!

Good morning all

Hope you are all well this fine morning and getting back into the swing of the new year!  I've been trying to get myself organised again - but it takes a bit of sorting out after Christmas lol.  I went to Ikea last week and bought 17 new storage boxes (to go with the other twenty odd lol) I've got it all planned in iny mind - these boxes are going to change my craft life and perfect my storage system!!! - I do actually know where everything is......in the meantime my craftroom is a mess, lovely new empty boxes piled everywhere- about 12 inches of space to craft in
 Oh and I've also got new pens to put away!! - 
......but need to do my colour chart first ,
....... then reorganise them again (I keep them in alpha order!!)..... 
.....I so wish  it was all sorted, 
.......I don't like chaos.  

Meanwhile I've got my grandaughter to look after today and at 9 months old she's no help at all lol 
But were going to have fun, ilove when she comes to play : )
- but I  digress....

Gorgeous card, Judith - I love the colours and die cuts with that fabulous ribbon. You can never have too many storage boxes in your craft room - I've just rejigged some of mine and made new labels - after I bought a new big tower.... Lol!!!

A beautiful card Judith, so pretty.
Good luck with your new storage. My craftroom is a mess at the moment and I've no room for more storage - I have vowed no more stash until I have space but I know it won't last!

When you've finished your craft room sorting please can you come and sort mine, you sound so much more organised than I am! You can bring your baby granddaughter too..I'll be more than happy playing with her while you do all the work! :))
