Hello and good morning! My name is Barbara Lochridge, and I am sooo excited to be on the Simply Renee Clip It Up design team! I feel privileged to be amongst such talent! I have been married for 26 years to a wonderful man and I have two grown sons. The youngest made us very proud by following in his father's footsteps in the United States Navy. The oldest who we are also proud of, made us grandparents last year to a beautiful baby girl. She is definitely being spoiled by Grandma! Enough about me, on with the show.
I love lace and try to use it on everything! So I have a different use for the 36" Ribbon Organizer. I am using it as my lace holder, well, there is a bit of ribbon in the top, but now that I have this, it will all be lace soon. It is wonderful to have my rolls of lace where I can see them. Before the rolls were in a drawer and I would forget about them. Now they are displayed where I can see them.
I put my yards of lace in baggies. I can see exactly what I have, and what I am running low on. I love how I can see all my lace now. It's so much easier and less messy. Before I would dig threw a basket, and things didn't always make their way back in, because I was intent on finding what I needed and getting my layout finished (if you know what I mean)! It really has saved me time on cleanup! I absolutely love my 36” ribbon holder!
I love to do heritage layouts and almost always use lace. That's why I have so much of it. Today's layout is a heritage layout using Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime collection. I love their collections! And yes, you will notice lace on this layout. It is a picture of my Grandmother when she was still in high school.
Couldn't resist adding pearls to the lace.
I hope I have inspired you to use your Clip it Up in a different way. I plan to have more organizational tips for you in the coming months! See you again in a few weeks!
