I Told You. . . {Projects Begetting Projects}

As you could surmise, cleaning the craft room left me frustrated with a few things, namely my ribbon. I have tried numerous things to enhance my organization sanity. Unfortunately I always had the same dissatisfied results-- ribbon everywhere and not where it should be. See the ribbon hanging on the wall in the picture above. I saw that at Michaels and fell in love. Dylan said what he always says, "I can build that for you." I love and hate that phrase. I love that he can, I hate that its on his schedule and not mine. Our schedules are years apart.

So, after being frustrated again with the ribbon, I scoured the Internet for ideas that {I could build}. I found this idea and of course made my own little adjustments. I am pleased with how it turned out.

  1. An old frame sitting in my closet
  2. Two cafe curtain rods via TARGET
  3. A little screwing {he he} Dylan helped with that part {he he}
  4. Two nails {come on now}
  5. Slide your ribbon on!!!
  6. Woo hoo!!

Another project I completed yesterday. Is a great {Father's Day Gift} I am also very pleased with how it turned out. It was Shandi's idea and my design. Those are indeed my four year old's footprints. She has quite large feet-- those come from me-- poor kid.

I am still trying to figure out what to get my dad and father-in-law. So hard to decide.

I have been wanting to do that with my ribbon forever and just never have. Time to get going.

Um yeah, where did you get the vinyl for that picture? or is it stencil? I'm thinking I might copy... for the grandpas....

We are SO on the same wavelength sometimes. I made something like that to hold all of my earrings...so that they weren't randomly strewn about my craft room, and that I would be able to find them if I actually needed to mail some out. Mine's not as fancy as yours, but kind of the same idea. As always, you are amazing!!!
