Lil Extra Organizing Post

Hey Krazies -

So, I got that funky spinner thing from Michaels for 50% off then 25% off figuring I could use it cause I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Poor Girls Clip It Up.  I totally should do a post on that ya think?  Anyway - this one from Michaels after discounts was like 11 bucks or something and it's designed to go in the jet max spinner thingy that holds tools.  (I'm glad I'm so technical) 

But - I didn't like it. what ya gonna hang on there with a whopping 3" clearance?  So I put it on the side figuring I'd find someone that wanted it. 

I have 3 drawers or ribbons - 2 are full of ribbons on spools and the 3rd has ribbon I've gotten at crops, parts of ribbon, you know - that kinda stuff. So yesterday I had put them on ribbon plastic things and threw them back in the drawer. Last nite I thought "hmmmm wonder if it would look on on that spinner thinger?"

And I started putting them on there.

Now I need more clips cause I'm totally out  -

This is not ALL of my ribbon - it's spare ribbon or ribbon in tiny packages. But it works..... for now.

What ya think?

Also I had the great idea to put cork on the sides of my spinner thingy - yeah - dumb idea. Cork too thin for any pin they sell on the planet - AND does not stick well. So now it's just blank.

Hugs and Chirps!


  1. Great Idea for the ribbons!I usually place them inside a decor Coffee Can!!!TFS

  2. Hi Tangee, i have this same rack and I love mine!!! I use it to hang cards I just finished or small stamp sets, templates, just about everything small!! It'll grow on ya!!

  3. I think this is a great idea! Christina

  4. Love your ribbon organizer. I'm glad you found a use for it. Great idea.

  5. You are right, they don't give you much room to hang much of anything but I think its a great idea to use for ribbons, tfs

  6. Glad you made use of it. I have never purchaed one like this before because I just look at it and frustrated. Seems to cumbersome for me, but looks like it will work great for your ribbon.

  7. Tangee, I have the same gadget. What I did w/ mine was to put the bottom ring down further, so there's more clearance on the top ring. Does that make any sense?? LOL This way, the bottom ring thingies don't hit the stuff that's in the bottom unit. Yeh, I know, clear as mud, right? LOL

    Anyway, on another note, I'm getting the shoe tree thingie today and I'm going to turn that into a homemade clip-it-up. :-)

    What poor girl's clip-it-up do you have? I would love to see a post on it. :-)

  8. You're always thinking, Tangee. Great idea and it puts those ribbons in an easy place to reach!

  9. I'm just starting to use ribbons, this is good idea.

Kricut Krazy is back!

Hello everyone!

I've missed you all!  What a crazy summer it has been.  I just kept walking by my craft room and longing to sit down and do something fun.  I've dabbled in things over the summer but no real crafty fun day.  I've been cooking tons of stuff I find on pinterest (surprisingly most has been a huge hit!) I've tried my hand at washer jewelry - and failed (see photos below) but I'll keep trying.

I didn't realize my phone posted a video I took the other day until I started getting you tube comments and emails LOL So here ya go for those that haven't seen it:

Ok a coupla ya asked about the washer jewelry.  I wanted to make them for my daughters. Krystina's would have Ragan Lyn  on the large washer and 3/14/2013 on the small washer with a blue stone for March.  Amanda's would have Julianna Marie on the large washer and 7/3/2013 on the smaller one along with a red stone for July.  Sigh.  Why does everything look SO much better in my head than i…

Scrappin with my Bug Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey Krazies!

My sweet friend Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug is having a birthday!  We're celebrating by gathering a bunch of fun ladies for a big blog hop that is going to run all weekend long. Lots of fun stuff to see along the way and prizes galore!  Be sure you stop at Michelles blog first to wish her a Happy Birthday! 

My Project
Happy Birthday Michelle!
 Front of the Gate fold card.  I used rub on dots for the top and bottom, 2 buttons to wrap the bakers twine around and cut the flowers from Walk in my garden.  The stamps are misc Birthday stamps and the paper is all DCWV various stacks.  I inked around the flowers with chalk ink (cats eye I think it's called)  Oh and the rub on dot borders are from Stamping Up.  I'm brand new with rubber stamps and will eventually learn how do do it correctly.
 Inside of the card.  It's your Day is from Pink Cricut - one of her stamp sets.... sorry don't remember which. Paper is from DCWV and I inked a lil here and there. 


You are going to LOVE this video. TRUST ME!

How do you store your 12x12 paper?  Do you like those Vertical folders from Cropper Hopper?  See that? 5.88.  I love them, but I needed 15 of them.  I have 5.  Well after putting my thinking cap on I came up with a way to do this for FREE.  and it takes 3 sheets of paper to decorate.  So watch the video then leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

At the end of the video is a contest for some blog candy - who wants a free cartridge?  I don't know what the cartridge is yet because my sponsor didn't tell me what they were sending - so we'll all be surprised YAAAY.

I love comments so please leave me some feedback!
