If you want your room to photograph well, don't paint it "watermelon smoothie". It's a great color in person, not so great in photos. lol! I didn't realize my cricut is hiding behind that box, but I promise it's there! That box is full of flowers I made for my sister-in-law's wedding. What do you do with 80 fabric flowers?!
I love my ribbon, thread, and washi storage. I bought 2 shadow boxes and filled them. I keep looking for a third to join them, but prices have gone up and I'm not willing to spend that much.
See! I do love my ribbon storage. I wrap all of my ribbon around vintage wooden spools. The only ones I don't do that for are the huge rolls of thin ribbon. Those get stored elsewhere.
I am in the process of organizing photos. There are piles everywhere! But I should be able to conquer the mess this weekend. I don't really have a choice since Tony's parents are coming in less than 2 weeks! This is how I'll organize my college years through now. Don't worry, this isn't all of the photos I have! I only print what I need.
Tony and I made these for my room last year. I painted these boards and then screwed the jar lids into them. It makes it really easy for me just to unscrew them and screw them back on. I use them to hold buttons, metal embellishments, jewels, hair bow making supplies, etc. I even have one that holds premade bows that I make from the ends of ribbon rolls. I hate to waste anything.
I even keep and hang my tags from different scrap events I go to. The one there is from an event I worked at last year. More on that another time. I hung up my mother's day gifts from the twins. If only you could see how adorable they are in those photos!
I know it's not a great photo, but this is how I store my cardstock. I got it at a garage sale for 2.00. It's made for 8 1/2 x 11, which means it doesn't close. Sometimes closing it would be a big inconvenience though.
This is how I store my other paper. You can see the tape on them from when I've taped them to keep them from opening while traveling. I need to come up with a new way to store paper because I can never find what I want! Maybe I should make custom shelves for each brand.
