May Arts Ribbon Organization

 HELLO, HELLO!
From paper to fabric EVERY crafter loves ribbon.  Organization on the other hand can be a pain.  Well don't worry because the ribbonistas are here to help.  From big spaces to small we got ideas for it all.  (yes that was an intentionally dorky rhyme).
 Today is the last day of the hop so for way more inspiration check out the May Arts blog.
I'm starting off the hop today with some of my go to ribbons.
Here is how I keep them.
 I do all my crafting on a desk in our living room which means I don't have a big crafting area.  It also means that everything on my desk will be seen so it has to look pretty.  Lucky for me all May Arts ribbon is gorgeous and having a big bowl of it laying around is just yummy.   So when I saw this fruit bowl at Costco for $20.00 I had to pick it up for all my Go-To ribbons.
Yum...Pretty
 You know the ribbon lady can't have a hop without a give-away so leave a comment on all the blogs in the hop (all three days) for a chance to win 3 spools of your choice.  Then you can pretty up your own desk!
 Your next stop is the fabulous

Thats a really nice basket to keep and display your lovely ribbons in. I'd do that but there's a dust problem in my place so I keep it in lock tight plastic see thru boxes. But nice to have a basket on hand for ribbons you're currently working with! Thanks for sharing your idea!

Very pretty. It will look good in your living room - people will think you intended for it to be a decoration. Does give you lots of storage space.
