Ribbon storage

We made it to Friday!! Woohooo!!! With lots of cold weather and more snow on the way, I couldn't be happier. Not to mention, hoping for some quality scrapbooking time this weekend.. something I never made it to last weekend with all the sleeping my body felt it needed and the running I did. Needless to say I have been dragging a little too much for my taste this week which is why posts have not been as frequent- sorry guys!! Hopefully I can my creative juices flowing and get a jump on great posts for next week. I am still so bummed about the lost time surfing quality sites at work. I realize I am happy to have a job that allowed for that previously.. but man, cold turkey withdraw much??

Anyway, today I bring you a quick, but still pretty cool {if I can say so}little storage solution. What I really wanted to use for this was an over the door shoe storage center. You know, those plastic cheapo ones??? Yea? Well, I counldn't find one at the dollar tree or dollar general so I just used a multi-pant hanger...
Just. Like. This.


I think this will be an OKAY temporary solution. Either that or I need to be smarter about which ribbons are where. Some ribbon spools (they are called spools right?) are too big and run into each other. I do still have those loose ribbon pieces in drawers but I will be eventually be doing something like this:

Fabulous idea! I even have some of these hangers in my closet :) At the moment, I have all my ribbon on shelves and I was just thinking it takes up too much space, so I think I shall try your solution.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful tip. Have a great and fun weekend.

Hugs,
Stephanie

Dropping by from the Link-Up!

I really like the hanger idea! My ribbon just sits in a draw most of the time and is completely unorganized!! This idea seems great!!
