HIMCR Creative Spaces Blog Hop

Thanks for clicking over from Adrienne's blog!  Doesn't she have a great space?!  Now it's time to visit a pink space.  Yep.  Very pink.  

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.   

I hope you had a great time exploring my creative space.  Please leave me a comment letting me know what you think!  Now, go visit Kelli's space!  And don't forget to visit the main blog at the end and leave a comment for the giveaway!
