Happy Thursday to you! I have decided why my craft room is getting done so quickly....I'm avoiding the DREADED taxes! I haven't done mine yet....hmmm, I have a few days, right? UGH! Anyhow....I thought I'd update you with a sneak peek! I am LOVING my new ribbon storage! I had a great ribbon rack (that my downline's husband made!). It truly is a beautiful piece of furniture, but I go through ribbon so quickly with classes that it was a real pain to replace my ribbon on the dowels. I knew I needed something quick and pretty.....so I'm using the photo shelves from IKEA for my ribbon!!!! HOW FUN IS THIS!?!?!? These sweet racks are only $15 and are about 3 1/2 feet long I think.
What I find funny about these and having my ribbon organized is how many rolls I've double, tripled and even more.....ordered! Apparently I LOVE Melon Mambo Polka Dotted Ribbon and Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon! My top shelf are the retired ribbons (and I sorted them by colour). The other two racks are all current and I sorted them by type then colour....aren' they pretty??? I can't wait to just sit at my desk and stare at them! Hey, for those of you that have been in my room before too, you'll notice the room is painted:) Three of the walls are Baja Breeze! I went to the paint store and they matched the colour to my card stock! YAY!
My latest little "stumble" is a desktop. I'm thinking an IKEA run might be in order, but maybe there are desktop options that are more local??? Any ideas? You guys have been amazingly helpful and I have you to thank!!!! Thank you so much! Please feel free to read the comments over the last few days there are amazing ideas!
This is ONE of my MANY Easter pages I've done. You can see my kids and the other three are my nieces and my nephew. Without ANY planning everyone showed up in purple! I love it! So of course I had to take a million photos. Cole wasn't in the "mood" for a photo shoot, but the others did a great job! It's tough to see but Cole has a little bow tie on:) SO adorable! I'll have more pages and photos for you to see! I This page was inspired by one in my Scrapbooks Etc. Magazine. Hope you like it!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and again for ALL the amazing suggestions and ideas!!! I'll check back soon!
Here is the link for the IKEA shelf:) Thanks for all the kind words!
