Suzie Says...

While I was doing St Patty's Day gifties I remembered this one...
Suzie says, Always save ALL your tiny pieces of ribbon!
Huh? (you're thinking)
Yes, invisible friends, save those bits of ribbon and of course all the bows and baubles from showers and birthday parties. I started saving ribbon, per my mom's suggestion, at my wedding and I totally recommend it. I keep mine very organized (ha!) in a tub and it comes in handy for making fun unique bows... you just keep tying bits together till it looks awesome :)
Lets face it folks... ribbon is the last thing we need to be spending our moo-la on when times are tight. Recycle your ribbon!!
Save your ribbon, save your money and save the earth!
Whod-a-thunk saving ribbon would be so noble!?!?!

Side note... I made corn beef on Irish People's Day and Cora Jane LOVED it... I think she ate the most at the table!

To all my new UBP friends... Don't let the Linky Love end with this Blog Party!! Join Eli's Lids Remember When Linky on March 30th!!! Details here.

My mom does this, too. I had a bag going until my dog got hold of it :(
Good advice.

Bomb-diggity! Hilarious. You write so well and have such an adorable sense of humor. And OH MY GOODNESS! Thank you for wanting to do a write up about my photography. I feel so very honored, Kara Noel. Thank you. I will get to it this weekend and send you the requested info. In the meantime, congratulations on your new place. Happy unpacking!

I have a box full of saved ribbons as well. I don't want to spend money on that kind of stuff either.

Thanks for stopping by. Our walk was like a science class. I was just happy to be outside in the sun that I didn't think much about that.

Kara, I came by because of your comment on my UBP post. Then I started laughing, and then I was reading. And reading. And still reading, fell in love with your blog. You are so dang cute. (And um, yeah, kinda need some Lids, now.)

The moving Saga? Perfect and bittersweet, and I totally get it.

I'm so glad you stopped by.

Ashley said...

I, too, tend to save every piece of ribbon and/or bow that comes into my life. Although, unlike you, I don't have them organized AT ALL (all thrown in a bag in my scrapbooking room)!

Thanks for visiting my blog via USP'09! I hope you come again soon!
