WOYWW and new ribbon storage

Well i have dithered wether to add to todays WOYWW which is where everyone adds their craft desks for peeps to have a nosey at as mine is not very exciting at the moment and i am still trying to get my lappy fixed (am on a borrowed one) and have had to borrow a camera too!
But got itchy fingers at the thought of not joining in so here it is
You can see my first ever go at making a altered book following a fab tutorial here, got as far as taking the pages out but me thinks i have taken out too many....lol need to attack it with gesso later (can't wait) and had to use a ribbon as couldnt find a elastic band,printed instructions just peeping out,a broken table that i need to fix for work for the dolls house and some goodies sent from a friend as i cut out some ribbon holders for her. Luckily managed before lappy crashed on me but i am missing it as my images,projects and scal are all on there,fingers crossed it can be fixed.
And as my desk is not doing much thought you would like to see my new ribbon storage for my reels of ribbon which my lovely hubby got for me,isnt it cute. Have to also say thanks sharon re the use of your camera and i love that it adds the date :)
Going to get ready for work now and then i will be catching up with your blogs later,thanks for visiting and dont forget to go and see Julia over at Stamping ground to have a nosey at some fab desks.x

  26. I'm so glad you decided to join in, it's lovely to see you.
    Your AB seems to be coming along nicely and I love your ribbon storage. I've hunted high and low for one of those cupcake holders and followed up leads by helpful bloggers but all with no luck. I'll keep hunting.
    Happy WOYWW

  27. Fab idea for ribbon storage and if you use all your ribbon (?) you could always fill it with cakes.
    Doesn't look like you have taken too many pages out of your AB, looks just right. I Gessoed the covers yesterday and am going to get happy with the craft knife and niche today.

  28. Everyone is into altered books at the moment, but I dare not get into that. We are trying desperately to get rid of a lot of our hundreds of books, gradually replacing them with the electronic version on the Kindle. It saves space and means we can take our library with us in the caravan without having severe weight issues. Your ribbon storage looks a very useful piece of kit, and pretty too. Hope your computer son recovers. Thank you for your visit and hope you have a very good week. xx Maggie #8
