Travel with me to CHA!

Well, I don't mean travel in the literal sense...although I would pack all of you in my suitcase and sneak you in if I could!   However, there is a way for you to see what's going on...just visit the LBH blog and I will be uploading pictures every day from the showroom floor!  I will post some of my favorite finds here too!  Lots of shopping to do...planning on filling that Little Blue House with loads of the latest and greatest products CHA has to offer!

Have a wonderful week!

Bring on the Ribbon piles!!!

I made a commitment this week to "Get it Together" in 2011
and I am taking part in the Little Blue House
 8 weeks of  Organization...Want to join along with me??
Visit the LBH blog and find out more...

This week we are tackling our piles and piles of Ribbon...
I have a wonderful system for my ribbon organization and
I would love to share it with you! 

Step #1:  Gather all your ribbon together
 

Step #2: Do a quick sort of your ribbon into color families
 

Step #3: Cut some chipboard to fit into a photo box; I cut mine 4x7in. Now wrap your ribbon around the chipboard and secure with a pearl head pin. Keep your color families together.
Step #4:  Place your ribbon cards into the photo box.
You will be amazed at how much ribbon you can fit in these boxes!
 Believe me, I have tried so many different ways and bought so many different organizers for my ribbon...all to end in disappointment. Trust me, this works and if you are a visual person (like me) then place the lid under the box so you can see the beautiful colors of ribbon. If you would rather keep a tidier appearance in your creative space, then simply place the lid on the box and create a label for your ribbon box with the color group listed on it.  I hope you will give it a try...it's sure to bring you much creative JOY!

Enough typing...time to go work on my PiLeS!

Happy Ribbon Sorting!
