Getting Organized

Handmade Monday is here!  I do look forward to it, as it keeps me going no matter what and it’s becoming a Monday habit to go and see what everyone else is doing, even if I don’t get around to it the rest of the week.  So please do yourself a favor and click that little link above (or this one!) for Handmade Monday and see what all the fuss is about.  AFTER you see what I’ve done this time, of course.  🙂

I’m not going to blather on much here, except to say that if you missed it, I did post a Valentiney jar I made last week here as I promised I would. I also posted photos of some of my Mom’s knitting here in honor of her birthday this weekend.

But, for now, please head over and see how I solved one storage problem made some simple Ribbon Jars for my thin ribbon.

    What a good idea for jars and no more bundles of ribbon all over the floor have a good week

    That is a really good idea. Just had a look at your mum’s knitting and it is gorgeous! Mich x

    Thats a great idea for storing ribbon, I tend to find that as soon as i’ve opened it from its lovely neat packaging it explodes into a mass of tangled colours. Definately going to have to pinch this idea. x

    that is a great idea for ribbons, which I use a lot of. Plus, having two cats who think anything that is hanging over the edge of a table is fair game for pulling and running away with. they are a brilliant way to store them. Hope you have a good week.

    What a brilliant way to store ribbon – it’d work for my string too, which gets everywhere. Glad you’re enjoying HM x

    Great idea for storage, just love the myriad of things you can put in a Kilner jar and they always make you look so in control 🙂

    I think I’d need a million jars for all my grosgrain!!! Good idea though!x

      I haven’t tried it, but I assume you can use bigger holes and put larger sized ribbon into jars of different sizes.

    Fab idea. And they look so pretty too!

    Love the valentine jar – really brilliant idea for not just Valentine’s day. Your ribbon jars would make super gifts as well as a good storage idea.
