Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to today’s Sew Organized Craft Room series! Today I’m featuring a way to keep your ribbon organized. Spring is near and I love all the bright pretty Spring colors. So I went shopping…..again. This time at Michaels. I found the cutest bright and cheerful flowers I’ve ever seen! They came in green, blue, yellow, and orange and I had to have everyone of them.
That’s how I came up with today’s feature. Since they are on loooong stems, I ran several spools of ribbon through the stem and placed it on top of one of my favorite teapots, I found at a thrift store. To hold the stem on the teapot, I just used a larger spool on bottom that fit perfectly around the entire edge of the teapot. It stays in place perfectly. Then I bent the flower a little so it would show. Not only will this hold your ribbons, it makes a beautiful decoration for your craft room!
I usually make these posts early in the morning….sooner rather than later! But I have a good reason why it was later. Well, two good reasons. My computer crashed….grrr. There’s nothing worse than being so excited to make a post and your computer crashes! Thankfully, I was able to get it restored. I’m sooooo thankful for my computer! There are only a few things in life I can’t live without, and my computer is one. of. them.
Reason number two….I was waiting and ready to post this this morning at 10:00AM and not 8AM, because I wanted some great sunlight. When taking photo’s, lighting is everything. To learn tips and secrets on taking photo’s with good lighting, see my post on my new Photography 101 Series-Lighting.
