I am so excited! I have been doing some much needed organization in my craft room and it is starting to look and feel great! Don't you find that you are much more creative when everything is all neatly organized or is this just me? Anyways, last summer I went to a yard sale and found cute little shelves. The man told me he had made them himself for his wife years ago, He had $10 marked on each. It was getting late in the day and I had already brought a lot of stuff but I was thinking they would be about the right size for ribbon. He saw me thinking about it and told me he would sell them both for $5. I agreed thinking even if not for ribbon I could use them somewhere. What a great deal! Brian and I stopped at the hardware store and got a length of quarter inch round (think base boards). We varinshed the quarter inch round and he nail gunned it on for me. Tada now the shelf was perfect for ribbon because it couldn't roll off the front! I only wanted one done at the time because I didn't think I had enough ribbon for two. I Figured I would use the other one for something else and didn't want the lip on it. (I have no idea what I was thinking, lol). Just the other day we finally got around to finishing the second one as all my ribbon never really fit on the first, lol. Below is a picture of just the one and my overflow draw and then a picture of both hung side by side. Don't they look great?!
I am 28 year old subsitute teacher. I live with my understanding husband (he hardly ever complains about how much time I spend in my craft room)! My favorite pastime is scrapbooking and in the last year I have started card making. Which has become sort of an obsession I might add (who knew you could actually run out of scraps lol)
