I worked on one area. The ribbon. Wonder where all the ribbon missing from the craft store shelves goes? It goes straight to my office. I have enough ribbon to decorate a small army of divas for quite some time. I thought (foolishly) that I had part of a wall of ribbon...I actually have almost two walls FULL of ribbon.
I have been so busy working on new bows lately that I haven't been rolling up my ribbon after I'm done cutting....SO here is the chaos that was my office before I started organizing it...
Yes I was working in chaos. Don't judge. :)
And THIS is what ONE of my walls of ribbon looks like after one night of tidying up
(yes that's right there's another wall behind me that is also full of ribbon, but it is also all nice and neat like this now)
I'm still working on the ribbon walls. They need to be organized by color (I have some obsessive impulses that tell me so) and I'm really trying to get the hubby to make me better ribbon storage than the hangers. I, unlike "Mommy Dearest" can see the value in wire hangers now though. So there's a plus right?
Ideally, I think a nice sectioned shelf with some dowel rods would be AWESOME for my ribbon storage....but after the hubby sees the massive amounts of ribbon I actually have, maybe he'll get moving on that shelf a little faster.
I intend on taking more pics and sharing more of my horrendous before pics as the project progresses. My fabric is next and I think I've found a great way to organize that too. It's the yarn that has me worried...no idea what to do with it.
What are your organizing pitfalls? What would you like to do with your crafting/work spaces?
