Organizing

I was reading this months Scrapbook Etc. magazine and I came across this organizing idea so I thought I would give it a try. Do you have a lot of ribbon? Leah Fung says "instead of digging through mounds of tangled ribbons, she likes to use floss containers to keep her stash neat and organized". I found this one at Joann's for $4.99 then I used my 40% off. I think it is going to work well. I am tring to make it easier to get to things I use all the time when I'm scrappin'. I'm getting there. Our niece stopped over this weekend and was in the computer/scrapbook room and said "you better watch out Uncle Chris, Aunt Laurie is going to be pushing you out soon". Does this mean I have too much scrapbook stuff? (I don't think so!!!) You can go to the Scrapbook Etc. web site by clicking HERE.

That looks like a great idea! I keep my ribbon and yarn in old maple syrup buckets hanging on the wall. They look cool, but it is hard to find what I need quickly. I usually end up dumping everything out on the floor!

Don't you love those 40% off Michaels coupons? I've been slowly trying to paperwork organized in the office. Your supplies look like way more fun!

What an awesome idea!
I have one of those floss organizers full of floss cards gathering dust. Aha! A use for it! :-)

Hey, that's a great organizing tip! I do have a lot of ribbon, and some of those boxes. I keep looking at the rolls that the ribbons come on, thinking that they take up a lot of room.
