Misty here with you today! How is the weather where you are? It is still pretty hot down here in Texas...still hitting the triple digits. On top of that, the wildfires that are burning all over my state are a little bit unsettling...to say the least. I have a brother and 2 cousins that are firefighters...and they have never been so busy in all their firefighting careers. Please say a little prayer for everyone that has been effected by the fires and for the men and women risking their lives to put them out. Even with fires burning all around, life still goes on.
School has been in session for 3 weeks down here...which means, of course, that I have been working busy as a bee making all kinds of accessories for my daughters. I actually found myself crafting just to keep my mind off of everything going on around me. As a matter of fact, I made so many hair bows and headbands, that I had to think of another way to store them. I found the perfect use for my altered Clip it Up...a hair accessory organizer!
I use the tabs to hold the bows, and the tri-arm to hold the headbands. I even place a few of the "poofy" bows around the base to complete the display. Genius right? LOL. It actually works magnificently, and the girls say that they feel like they are "shopping" for their hair accessories when they pick them out each morning! It is a great way to start a day...Diva style! I LOVE the fact that it makes them start out in a good morning every day. I even heard my six year old say that she felt like Hannah Montana! LOL
I have also been sorting ribbon and getting it ready for my next projects. I have a few things sorted for bows, home decor projects, and my favorite upcoming project...my son's Homecoming Arm Band! I am so excited to do that...I just can't wait! The drop down bar of the Ribbon Organizer has allowed to "Clip Up" my ribbon and get it ready for the intended project. LOVE Clip It Up!!!!
I have never been so organized in my craft area as I am now with my Clip It Ups. That is the honest truth! I used to feel overwhelmed with my "Stuff" because it was just so MUCH! Now, I feel like there is a place for everything and everything is in it's place. THAT makes me one Happy Crafter!!!!!
