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.

Hi everyone!

It's been almost 2 years since I posted... YIKES! It's been a little hectic on my end but I have been playing lately and hope tohave more posts.

I'm writing mainly because I noticed that the graphics on my blog has disappeared and I'm looking into why that has happened. I'm also looking into migrating to WordPress.

I've been making a lot of t-shirts lately and will post about them once everything is settled. For those of you that area actually still around - I appreciate it! I hope to bring a fresh new beginning to Kricut Krazy and become super active once again. I've missed you all dearly!

Hugs and Happiness!

Scoring with the Cricut Explore!

So, one of the cool new things is the ability to score and cut at the same time.  I'm finding myself needing the score ability quite frequently.  You should see me trying to hand score something - I'm never 100% accurate.... like ever.  So here is the handy dandy score tool by Cricut.

 So Yesterday I needed to make about 50 treat bags for a staff party at work on Halloween.  The first couple of bags I scored by hand. Oh... bad idea. They were crooked.  So I'm eyeballing the score tool holder thingy.  I had ordered one via amazon but it wouldn't be in until the next day, Me? Wait? NAH!  So I'm looking around my tool drawer and I find this embosser I bought many moons ago to use with Brass Stencils.  I put it in and shut the clamp thingy and away we go!  Y'all!!!!!!!! It worked.  Holy cow it worked.  You can see the score mark below.  How exciting is that!?

Today I get home from work and my new score tool is waiting for me.  Except I left it in the package. For …
