"Mess to Tidiness"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who has pressed a wrong button and landed here!!! You are very welcome, I hope you like what you see and visit again.
The weather has been so good of late that I have not done any Paper Crafting.  I did make some Pendants that Hazel & I sell to raise money for Charity.  We have stopped doing Craft Fairs and just sell these as we are asked for them.  When I was on holiday recently I was asked so many times about my Pendants.  Two people asked if they could buy the one I was wearing .......... I said no because it is favourite!!!  John being a "Salesman" to the core could not understand this.  He told me the next time we are away to make Pendants to go with my outfits and SELL THEM off my neck if asked....Men!!! 
Anyway I will show you some I made soon.  Today I am showing you how I have tided my "Lace Bundle" I did not take a "before" picture but here is what I do with my Lace.  I do keep it realativly tidy BUT all us Crafters know that we buy new things, put them away till we get time to "deal" with it.   I had a bit stack of lace that needed dealt with and here it is all done:-


I bought lots of Lace and Ribbon when I was on Holiday ....  always do!!  Do I really NEED it No!! but I just love buying it.
I make "Spools" for it from Loo Roll and Kitchen Roll insides.  I like to have it nice, I Die Cut ends from my Bit Box to hold the lace on.


All nice and neat in one of my "Lace Baskets"
I ran out of insides, there are still some bits to be done.

That`s it for me for today.
Thank you for your visit, I really appreciate you popping by
Till next time
Hugs

  16. Hi Patricia,
    That's what I do when storing lace, and I use the thinner kitchen foil or cling film empty rolls when storing ribbon, with a pin stuck in to stop it unwinding. Us geniuses all think alike!!!!

  20. What a fabulous idea much better than what I do, wrap it around an off cut of mount board all that is now about to change! Thank you for such a wonderful and very useful idea.
    Your lace look so lovely and I know just what you mean about buying more, and more, I have some I take out, look at and then put it back, too beautiful to use.
    Thank you again for your wonderful inspiration Patricia.

  25. Lovely idea for storing your lace May need to copy it for my measly collection of ribbon Have checked back over past couple if days I liked the oldie Need to check that cd out Positive and negative would be very useful for me! I loved the photos of the fruit and veg! And the way the boys described the cucumbers made me smile

  26. Hi Patricia
    Just catching up after extra days at work.
    I too am a kitchen roll gal and cut my ends with my circle dies, with another hole through the middle so I can thread em on a pole.
    I can see John being a "Looky looky" man on holiday opening his jacket to reveal your pendants hanging from the lining lol!
    Best wishes.

  30. Hello Patricia, what a great storage idea, maybe something I can use for the tons of ribbon that I have. I always look at the inside of the rolls, and wonder what I could use them for. Have a great day. Bx
