Scrap Spaces Challenge - ribbon

As you can tell from my lack of posts lately I haven't had much of a chance for crafting lately. This is due to the fact that my crafting spaces are a disaster and I can't find anything, hence the reason I joined the Scrap Spaces Challenge group at Simply Scrapping Crafts.

The first thing I did was organize my ribbon that was stuffed in a huge box all tangled. It went from this:

to now looking like this:

Another idea for ribbon organization is to buy wooden clothes pins from the dollar store, wrap your ribbon around them, secured with a pin, and storing them in plastic shoe boxes. This was a suggestion from a fellow organizer in my challenge group.

Hope either idea has helped you in your own organizational goals!

Sweets Box

Whenever the chocolate is gone, my dad says "your mom ate it all" and my mom says "your dad ate it all". So for this Valentines Day, I made a special sweet chocolate stash just for my dad filled with his favorite dark chocolates.

The box is just a crosstitch thread container covered with pattern paper from the dollar spot at Target. I then added felt letters and some bling with clear gems.

And don't forget to cover the inside to hide all your glue from the other side of the box.

Now my dad will have his own secret chocolate stash to enjoy when "mom eats" all the other chocolate in the house.
