The one with all the ribbon

I love ribbon... especially if its a shade of brown... or if its frilly... or has polka dots... or stripes.... well pretty much all ribbon!! I used to keep it all in a clear makeup bag that I punched holes in. But now that I mostly scrapbook from home I wanted a way to organize it a little better. So here it is... my rainbow of ribbon:

There was a weird skinny bar on the inside of the closet door in my scraproom that I didn't ever know what to do with. I was going to take it down and put up some hooks... but then I saw an idea on two peas about making your own version of clip it ups! I used the black dividers from my clip it up, cut horizontal strips in each one and fed the ribbon through. The hole in the top fits perfectly on the bar!
I have to say that I love how it looks so much! It makes me smile every time I see it. The best part is that I can *see* it all and use it much more often when I scrapbook!

I have lots of scrappy stuff to share... but I can't til next week. A couple of projects I have done that I can't share just yet!
Since this Thursday is American Thanksgiving I have a short week! YAY!! I plan on getting a lot of stuff done on Thursday... and planning out my shopping trip on Black Friday! I really hope to get most of my Christmas shopping done then. Going to miss all my girls since none of them can make it this year :(
But I will see all of them on Saturday night... I am having a PJ party at my house. Drinks, Chick Flicks and lots of food and snack! Can't wait!!!

I love this idea. Thought it would work on the bar I have, but it's too thick. Guess I've got to go shopping for a slimmer bar. Yikes, I hate shopping. Not. :) Thanks for sharing!
