As soon as I saw this From the Heart image I knew that it was only a matter of time before he WOULD be mine! I bought it initially thinking I would save him to use for a congratulatory card for my sister. She's working toward getting her Black Belt in December. (Yay) Buuuuut, I couldn't wait to use him.
This week's Sweet Sunday sketch over on Karen Giron's blog was so darn cute that I whipped him out to use. I think he turned out darling!
I also wanted to show you what Mr. Sitting On Pens did over the weekend.
Waaaaay back in December I bought this ribbon carrier from Michael's so my new craft room would be organized. After I built the darn thing (OK, if you really want honesty, I made Mr. Blog and my uncle do it ... but I was in the room) Anyway once it was together, I was ... let's go with the word "irritated" but understand that I was a bit crankier than that when I realized that the included dowels would not fit my SU ribbon rolls. In fact, out of the billions of ribbon rolls I own, those (er) darn dowels fit only 2 of them. TWO!!
So off I went to another craft store to purchase smaller dowels. These I painted to match the holder... but I have sooo much ribbon that the new dowel whimpered and cracked almost immediately. Seriously?!!
Finally, after listening to me complain ... a lot, Mr. Blog went to the hardware store and got me some iron re-bar. He cut it and installed it. Yay. What a guy!
Here's the ribbon rack all ready for use. Now here's my secret confession ... all those containers STILL don't have all my ribbon ...
I MAY have a ribbon problem
