Often the holiday season is rough on my art studio. My goal is always to get it back in order by the end of January. So one of my January traditions is to gather all loose ribbons recycled from holiday projects and unwrapped gifts and I store them in my ribbon box for easy access.
I organize the ribbon by color so I know the materials I have at a glance. And when wrapping gifts throughout the year I always remember to check the ribbon box for my needs before I move onto any of my new ribbon spools.
Hopefully I'll be painting again beginning next month!
