I've decided that organization is a never-ending task! Just when I have things just the way I want them, I get a new toy, or I need another shelf, or I find a different way to do things that I like better. It just never ends!
I've been wanting to find a new way to organize and store my ribbon. I like the way I have it now...until I get to the end of a roll! I use a dowel system you can see in the photo below. It keeps the ribbon organized, but I can't get the old spools off to put a new one on unless I take them ALL off! So the old ones stay on and the new ones just pile up on my table!
Over the weekend I experimented with a new idea :) I'm still using my dowels, but I've added "hooks" for them to hang on so I can easily remove them and add new ones! So far I am loving this new system. And it was so easy and cheap to do. I just undid some paper clips and hooked them through the ribbon and on to the dowel! And I added two more rows to one of my new bookshelves I got over the holidays :)
Now it's time to finish getting organized for my new laser cutter!!! I can't wait to show you the table my uncle is building for it to sit on...more photos to come :)
