The purging continues...

Today it's ribbon. Unbelievable how much ribbon, lace & ric rac you can accumulate without really realizing it! Yikes!

I am giving away 3 jars & one box of ribbon. I will pick 4 entrants and random, and you will be able to choose which lot you want, according to the order you are picked. The 3 jars are the tallest Yankee Candle House warmer jar candle size. And the box is a CD holder. That gives you a reference of the size & amount of ribbon. If you like, you can also have the container. In fact, I wish you would. LOL!

So sign up below. And this time you can sign up as many times as you want. Tell me how you got to my blog and what your favorite use for ribbon is.

Here they are:

#1 - a jar of spools


#2. A jar of miscellany -


#3. A box of miscellany, on cards -



4. A Jar of Ric Rac

You have till Saturday midnight to respond. Pass the word!

Thanks for helping in my efforts to purge my stash!

I just saw your post on Bad Girls Kits! I don't really have a lot of ribbon (other than what we get in our kits) but I like to use it in my layouts to either outline pictures or make borders for my pages. I am trying to experiment a little more with it.

I saw your post from Willow Traders. My favorite way to use ribbon, is to tie several different kinds on to things. Just little knots.

Good for you for purging!
