100 Days 100 Words #3 - Ribbon

First of all happy weekend everyone! I hope you are all having better weather than I am having, its been raining all day! :(

So onto our third word -Ribbon
Not sure why I chose ribbon as one of my words except that I do really like ribbon and have lots of it at home. I usually use it when I am making cards but I also like to use it when wrapping presents as I think it adds a nice touch. I love the versatility of ribbon, you get satin ribbon, grow grain ribbon, straight edge ribbon, wavy edge ribbon, all sorts really. This is the ribbon I keep in my craft room

I also have a separate stash of Christmas ribbon and ribbon for wrapping presents. Other than these divisions I haven't organised my ribbon at all, as you can see from the above photo! These is really unlike me as I'm normally super organised and I love to keep things tidy, so that I can't find exactly what I'm looking for with minimal fuss. However, I like the random mess of my ribbons and that I have to wade through them all to find the one I really want. I will probably never organise them, even though I do look at some (here) with envy!

Do you like ribbon? What do you use it for?

Please feel free to add your blog to the Mr Linky. The blog post can either be your own 100 days 100 words or just a post about ribbon! Also try and visit some other posts and share the love and link back to me!


  1. I really do like ribbons, but I don't have a post about them to share :(

    I'm stopping in from Sunny Saturday and followed you on GFC!

  2. I find that the ribbons that are so organised ( like the ones in your link) don't make me want to use them. I have mine wound around old wooden thread reels then just dumped in a basket so can sift through them. I will try & get a photo on the linky today.

  3. I love ribbons too, I am guilty of hoarding them though - I have far too many!

    Thanks for your kind comments at my place, x

  4. I also love ribbon, it's great with some ribbon clasps and a pendant. I particularly like organza ribbon for this as it can give new life to an old pendant.

  5. I never have any ribbon when I could need it, at least not in a place where I can find it - maybe I should get a box too :)
