GIVEAWAY!!! -- Ribbon Roll Control

WINNER OF THIS GIVEAWAY IS POSTED HERE.

Hi, Everyone....

I am extremely excited about this post because it is a real live GIVEAWAY right here on my brand-new little blog!

This is for one of  the  
Ribbon Roll Control ribbon storage
and organization systems.



Let me introduce you to this fabulous product:  Ribbon Roll Control.  I first became aware of it when I won one of these terrific storage tools in a giveaway at  Paper Crafter's Library.  (THANK YOU, PCL and RRC!!!) As I had mentioned on that blog, my ribbon was stored in plastic boxes and I never knew which box held the particular ribbon I wanted right then!  I was delighted
to win one of them and have been using it for the last
several weeks!


Size and capacity: The Ribbon Roll Control unit is 8" long, holds up to 16 rolls of 3/8" wide spools, and comes in two sizes for spools of different diameters: Petite (for spools up to 3.5 inches across) and Original (for spools up to 5 inches across). I chose the petite. You can get the exact dimensions on the FAQ page.

How is it shipped?:  The unit comes disassembled so it is very compact in its shipping box.  I was glad to see this since I envisioned the postal rugby team delivering a formerly assembled product cracked, crushed, and broken.  Nope.  It is made of tough acrylic and packaged well..  The service was lightning fast and the compact box fit in my mailbox, so I didn't have to go clear to town to pick it up at the P.O.  A plus for this rural crafter!

How about assembly?:  I wondered how hard it would be to put together.  By following the easy-to-understand pictorial instructions, it went together like a dream.  It is designed well to be durable and secure.  One thing I really like is that the unit doesn't feel like it is coming apart whenever I move it.  I can lift it by any side and it holds together reliably without any floppiness or play.  

Are the units stackable?:  Yes, they are!  I only have one unit right now, but they are designed to be used singly or to be stacked 3 units high.  Each one comes with a little piece that makes stacking them easy and secure.  
Have the cats knocked it down yet?  No, they haven't.  But I think that even if they do, it will survive just fine.....although the ribbon will become fair game to the little scoundrels!  Yikes!!

You can see how much I like this product, so you can imagine my excitement when Trish at Ribbon Roll Control offered to sponsor a giveaway here!!  Trish has been an absolute sweetheart to work with.....and one of the coolest things is she is willing to pay international shipping if the winner of this giveaway is an international reader!!!

So here are the details.............

This giveaway is for one Ribbon Roll Control unit of your size choice (original or petite).

Here's how to enter:. 
Leave a comment on this post telling me which size (Petite or Original) you would like to win.

Leave a comment on any or all of my other posts this week starting on my Mar. 2nd post throughout this week, including next Sunday (Mar. 9th) if I do a post that day.  The more posts you comment on, the more extra entries you get.  One comment per post, please. 

I will choose a winner on Monday, Mar. 10th.

Also, I would LOVE for you to choose to become a follower of my blog by Google Friend Connect or to subscribe by email.  The little widgets are on the right hand side of this page to do that.  I am NOT making this a requirement, because I hate it when bloggers coerce people into following just to participate in their giveaways.  But I am saying that it will make me supremely happy if you choose to follow or subscribe.  Please tell me in your comment if you subscribe by email or follow and watch it put a great big happy smile on my face!!!  :)

Thank you to EVERYONE for your encouragement and support.  This blogging is even more fun that I expected it would be!!!  

Have a lovely day.....even if it is pouring down rain, like it is here!
