What a Tangled Web We Weave!
I never used to be into fibres, but after my friend Deb M. generously shared some of hers with me, I have been buying them more and more. Last fall I discovered that Basic Grey has some really great fibre sets that coordinate with their paper lines. I have several of those which I have used on journals I have made. Then there is the beautful ribbons from Papier Valise that I love in a wonderful selection of colours. My favourite way of using them is to hang soldered charm pendants from them. (So much nicer than ball chain and much, much easier on the neck!)
Anyway, I have what amounts to a rat's nest tangle of fibres all stuffed in a drawer and I don't like it. I can't see what I have and if I can't see it, I can't remember to use it. So..if anyone has a good idea about how to organize and store my fibres, please post and let me know. I am thinking that I would organize by colour but beyond that, I haven't a clue.
I need to "spring clean" my art supplies and this is one thing I need to get a handle on! Let me hear ya-don't be shy!
