Red face Ribbon freak?

In the wake of me buying 25 rolls of ribbons in Michaels last night, I decided to see if I had other ribbon freaks for company. I have more than 125 ribbons, how many do you have?

I answered 11-25 of actualy spools, but I have dozens of different kinds of ribbon in an embroidery floss container. I love ribbon, especially the gingham!

I love ribbon....it adds so much to a card! I'm forever buying more...there always seems to be a color that I don't have (or don't remember having! LOL!). One of the girls at work brought in a ton of spools for me when her aunt was cleaning out her craft supplies. Some were brand new! I was in heaven!

I said 76-100 spools. But that so doesn't count the bobbin ribbon. OR the ribbon wrapped on tags. Or the ribbon in bags. Or the ribbons that are sold on cards.

I don't have an issues. Nuh uh. Not me.

Default ribbon

I am a BAD girl when it comes to ribbon. I was just reading the thread about the Michaels ribbon being clearanced and I got excited! I need to make a trip over there tomorrow when hubby gets back from his 48 hour shift. I don't NEED any more ribbon though... at last count I had 170 rolls! (but I counted the bobbins LOL). The vast majority of them are not SU though, so since SU ribbon comes on 25 yard spools I should actually count 5 rolls of non su ribbon as 1 right? In that case, I better go stock up, I am running low! LOL

I have 49 spools of ribbon...but that is just the start...when the local craft store went out of business I bought countless varieties of ribbon deep discount. I have slowly been wrapping them around cardboard the way it was shown in a recent CK mag. Each board is a different color family. I also have tons of loose pieces that are ends of rolls, trades, and gimmes.

Yes, first I had to admit I am an alphaholic, now you have me admiting I am a ribbonaholic...what's next??? Oh, the eyelets, brads and everything else metal...

Hey allidee ~ What month of CK mag was this "I have slowly been wrapping them around cardboard the way it was shown in a recent CK mag. Each board is a different color family." in? I haven't heard of this and I would like to read it. I am thinking about buting a "CraftLocker" for my ribbon, but am waiting a while to compile some info.

I have between 26-50 spools of ribbon! So, I guess I am kind of a ribbon freak?? I went to Hobby Lobby the other night, just looking for one color ribbon and I came home w/5 spools. Love ribbon!

Default Ribbon

Ribbon! what ribbon?? I probably have over 200 spools of various kinds. I use to do a lot of crafts for shows and have a bit rubbermaid container filled to the top besides all the containers of SU and ones I couldn't resist from Mikes and Joannes. I will never be able to make enough cards to use it all, but I do share with my fellow stampers. Just bought 4 more today on a trip to Mikes. I love ribbon!!!

I have about 150 rolls. But not all of it is for stamping. Some of it is wide and I use it when wrapping gifts.

I checked 26-50. Does that classify me as a wanna-be ribbon freak! I just ordered 14 rolls of grosgrain from SU! and will order the rest of the grosgrain on my next order! I JUST LOVE THAT GROSGRAIN RIBBON!!!
