Organization Friday!! Homecoming & A WINNER!!!

TGIF!!! I am really happy the weekend is FINALLY here!! This week seemed to drag on & on!! It has been a busy week (what else is new??) and it will be a busy weekend, but a fun busy! This week was Homecoming at the HS, so my oldest will be going to the dance tomorrow night....last night was the game (on a Thurs!!! Ugh!!) and they FINALLY won!!! Woo Hoo! Go Rams!! LOL!! Now they are 1-6, but at least they won on Homecoming!

Now on to the organization! Today I would like to show you how I store my ribbon! Again, I have tried SO many different ways...boxes with holes, bags with holes, dowels, shelves, you name it I have done it!! Lol!! But this idea is so far the BEST way I have had my ribbon!! I love it! I started sorting my embellishments by rainbow color & found that it is so much easier to find things! So I do that with my ribbon too!

It all started with the white cubes from Michael's...I had one that had two large drawers and it came with a divider to sort small things. Well, I used it for my Stampin Up ribbon because those spools are larger than most...then it hit me! Why not put ALL my ribbon like that?? So I bought 2 more cubes, but this time I bought the ones w/3 smaller drawers....AND I made my own dividers out of foam board! So here is the "Tower O'Ribbon" (labeled of course!!)
And here is my ribbon...Ta-Da!!! (Imagine the sun shining, birds singing & all of the wonderful things that are beautiful!!)







Using the foam board makes it more flexible also...notice in the black/white drawer, one of the dividers is "bent" for larger ribbon spools, but just "bends" back when it is taken out! I made all these dividers with a little more than 1 full sheet of foam board!!

I also store my scraps in here too...just used one section of the dividers for scraps!

I would like to get one more set of drawers...I would love to separate my red & pink ribbon! I now have a total of  8 drawers (red/pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black/white & brown/metallic) Now when I am making something, I figure out what color ribbon, open the drawer & there is all my ribbons in one place!

Now for the blog hop winner from last weekend....And the winner is.....
